Roland EV-5 Expression PedalIn short, an OK expression pedal. This pedal is made for "In your house use" and should not be used on stage (live). The cord is cheap wire, casing is plastic and not durable for touring. I like some boss pedals but this one needs an upgrade!

Greatest Thing Since Sliced BreadI have rather complicated guitar rig that utilises both dedicated outboard gear and software on a laptop. I currently use 12 of these pedals (and yes I DO use then) to control parameters of all sorts. They hardly ever fail, and when (and if) they do it tends to be after a decade or more of hard service. Don't leave home without 'em.

Not what I expectedI got this pedal to use/tweak my Boss RE-20 Space Echo, (great echo btw) It's just not what I expected. It's plastic for one, which I don't like.
I was expecting something a bit more beefy, more like a Wah. Mine seems flaky as well, It may have been used before. I'm not 100% sure.

PerfectGosh, I think I now have 6 of these units. I use them on the Eventide SPACE, Time, Mod and Pitch Factor pedals, as well as on my Strymon delay pedals. Perfect, faultless. Plastic, yet rugged and lightweight. Ample length on the cord. Never had an issue.
I prefer these units for guitar pedalboards due to their light weight and compact size. I haven't tried one on my Master Midi Keyboard as I have a metal BOSS unit and the additional weight keeps it in place when I fumble around with my feet.

Great pedalsI've used these pedals with a variety of keyboards for many years and never had a problem with them other than the cords eventually wearing out where they attach to the pedal - which can happen after a few hundred one-nighters! I currently use them as volume and control pedals for a Kurzweil PC3. I especially like the low profile and ease of action.

Great with Eventide Factor pedalsI have five of these units, one on each of my four Eventide pedals (TimeFactor, PitchFactor, ModFactor and Space) and one on my portable pedal board connected to a strymon el capistan. Range of motion and range of control suits all these units perfectly. Additionally, though they are light weight, they are sturdy - which really helps on the portable pedal board that I take when I fly.

Good in theoryI was told by a friend that this is the volume control I need to get. I'm sure it is, but the one sent to me is buggy. It causes my keyboard to drop at odd times, and I can't bring it back up unless I pull out the cable and reset the keyboard (Kurzweil PC3X).
