    It Does the Job

    Nothing fancy with this unit. It does the job and takes up very little space. The construction could be improved, but the plastic does cut down on weight.

    Line 6 EX 1

    Pedal does what it is supposed to do but for the price I thought it would be smoother, more sensitive and made with better materials. Construction seems good enough to withstand an old fat guy like me stepping on it though. Purchased to go with a Firehawk FX and I'm glad I bought it but I was a little disappointed that you can't assign the pedal to a wah function as needed. Once plugged into the Firehawk it sets the EX1 as a volume pedal and you can't change that. Makes some sense as I don't believe there is a switch in the EX1 as there is in the pedal on board the Firehawk. It would have been nice to assign one of the foot switches to an on/off function for the EX1 for volume or wah. I bought it anyway as I needed a quick an easy way to control the volume in addition to the volume pots on the guitar. I'd buy it again.

    Great add on

    Added this to my Line 6 LBV3 board. Love having volume and Wah available at the same time.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    I have a Line 6 M13 and the lacking of a Volume/Wah pedal was driving me nuts. So instead of buying each individual pedal I gave a chance to this product. Long story short, works perfectly and saved me some money. If you are on the same situation, this is the "great value and usefulness" choice!!

    Not a big fan

    I was surprised it was made of plastic. It works great just feels cheap.

    Does the job

    It does what is is supposed to do. I've used it with the Line 6 HD500X and Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler. It is very light weight (plastic) and portable. For a few more dollars, you can get the Mission Line 6 pedal. It is built like a tank, but it is pretty heavy.

    Good Value

    Works well. I have seen people complain about the quality of this expression pedal. I have found it works very well: smooth and quiet with no issues at all. It is not a super-high-quality pedal like the Mission Engineering pedal, but it is also less than half the price and does exactly what it is supposed to do.

    This is actually an old Boss/Roland frame as I used to have this same designed pedal as a stereo volume pedal. And line6 has closed up said appropriate holes.

    The original intention was to use it with the Firehawk FX for wah with the on board pedal to control my volume. Though I hadn't checked to see if they could be assigned differently, In all applications the EX 1 became volume & the onboard pedal became wah which is not the result I was looking for. As a volume pedal the EX 1 is extremely notchy, no smooth travel/taper, period. With more guitar players buying software/apps that require expression pedals, there are a few sturdier crafted pedals that appear to be more forethought & less afterthought which the EX 1 is obviously afterthought.
    But I gave it 2.5 because though not great, it does work, & I know a keyboard player who seems to be in need of an expression pedal most times when he shows up for rehearsal. So, here's an okay loaner. :-/

    Works Great

    Very satisfied with the pedal purchase. And there is no tone suckage tone like a regular wah.

    Good pedal, great price

    It may not be a metal Mission Control pedal, but the Line 6 EX 1 works perfectly with my HD500 as a second pedal. I had tried a couple of other expression pedals, but they were flaky with the HD500. Not this one - guess it helps that it's by Line 6. It's got a smooth feel and is solid despite being mostly plastic.

    Excellent Purchase

    I am extremely happy with this petal. I bought it for my boyfriend to use with a multi-function petal, and he is thrilled about how awesome it is. It really compliments the guitar and petal sounds. I was also impressed with the customer service from Sweetwater. I would definitely order from them again. You have your guitar sound, which sounds even better through a petal, but with the addition of this expression petal there are endless options for sound. It is very cool to hear. I tried it and it is very fun. Wish I could be more specific with the lingo. :)

    Built on the cheap, but works well with the M13

    No problems at all working with the Line 6 M13. It is built kind of cheap for $50. I wouldn't expect a whole lot more for this price though. If you need a sturdier product buy the Mission Engineering pedals. I feel it's a good purchase for an expression pedal at the price.
