I was wondering if there are any users here that have a Boss FV-500H next to their M-series.


Thing I'm curious about, is that if u use this pedal as an expression pedal, will it also still function as a volume pedal. (not the volume of the m5/m9/m13)

And how does this work? If no effect is selected the pedal just works as the volumepedal it's intended to be? Or do you have to make some sort of alteration to it.




ps. I know the Ernie Ball is great...but i'm not paying over a hundred bucks for a volume pedal.

You'd have to choose whether or not to use the pedal as an expression pedal or a dedicated volume pedal. If you use it as an expression pedal, you'd take a cable from the output to one of the M13's expression pedal jacks. If you use it as volume pedal, you'd put it somewhere in your signal chain like you would any other effect pedal. You can use the expression pedal to control the volume pedal effect in the M13, but this uses one of the slots in your scene, so that may be a deal-breaker for you. BTW, I'm not saying whether or not this specific Boss pedal is compatible or not with the M13 as an expression pedal. If I remember correctly, I believe it may be, but I don't know.

Actually, the Ernie Ball Jr. sells for $84. It's cheaper than this Boss pedal.
