Which Mission pedal for Helix floor unit?

Recommended Posts

I am wanting to buy an additional expression pedal or two for my Helix floor unit, which Mission expression pedal is used for the floor unit?  I see the one that is made for the rack but I do not know if that one is compatible or not?  Thanks.

I think you want the EP1-L6, because that one does not have the toe switch. The SP1-L6 does have the switch, but I don't think the floor unit has a port for the switch cable. I'm running the rack version with a controller (that does have the EXP toe cable port) so sorry if I am wrong about the floor unit not having that port.

Many EXP and Volume pedals will work, too. If you already have an VP Jr., for instance, try that before buying something.

I use the cheap plastic EP1s. They are fine as long and you don't jump on them. You can get 3-4 of them for the price of one Mission pedal.

And you'd need 3 or 4 of them to last as long as one Mission pedal too...  ;)   :lol:

Yeah, probably but I have had good luck with them. I've had one for a few years now. Used it a long time with my M13 and M5. Still works like a champ.

I have two of the mission pedals, they look nice but I prefer the feel and taper of the Ernie ball better for tweaking volume in the middle of a set. Much easier to make slight adjustment.

I have two EX-1s still, and they both still work. I think I got the first one in 2000, when I got my MM4. I bought another in 2002 or so... They've been mounted on pedalboards, thrown in gig bags, stepped on, kicked, etc, and they're still working fine. I did buy two Mission Engineering pedals for the Helix, but mainly for the stability of a heavier pedal. The EX-1 are much-maligned, but they aren't really fragile. I actually think those EX-1s might be some of the oldest pieces of gear I own. They've been used with multiple generations of other Line 6 gear that's been sold off or put in storage.

I'm sure they are great. I was Just comparing the wear and tear of hard plastic versus metal. Other than in water metal usually wins.
