Expression Pedal for HX Stomp

Recommended Posts

I just got a Stomp and am wondering what some of the more common expression Pedals people are using with it. I need one for Wah. Any recommendations?

 

Thanks

Mission Engineering makes an expression pedal specifically for Line 6 products.  But if $130 is a little too pricey, you can always mod an old Crybaby to do the same thing.  Check out this thread for the Crybaby mod.

As said above, I use the Mission Engineering Pedal. I'm not at all interested in modding anything, and I love how sturdy and useful it is (because it can effectively be two pedals in one). 

 

I bought it on a deal, so I landed it for about $120. Still expensive though, I admit it.

 I prefer operating by hand and made me expression2/fs4 box. One pot, one button, one TRS jack female, one trs-trs cable and 3 hours of making. Works perfect!

I use the Line 6 EX1 as an expression pedal for volume or various parameters.

Cheap but it does it anyway...

Morley M2 Passive Volume Pedal as Expression Pedal with HX Stomp

 

Thanks to several who posted previously about getting non Line 6 pedals working as Expression pedals.  It does work. There are several earlier descriptions about getting pedals like the Morley M2 working, but there is one additional piece of information that will be ESSENTIAL for some Morley owners:  Although the circuit board is labeled as 10K ohms, some of the Morleys were actually built with 1M ohm slide resistors.  (Inspect the pot itself, it will be labeled in some way, a value or part number, or slap an ohm meter on it.) They're not going to work no matter how you jumper them.  In my case I was able to find a 10k with the same physical dimensions (common - the good folks at Morley sent me one).  Replace the 1M ohm with the 10K Ohm unit and the pedal will work perfectly with a STEREO (TRS) cable.  I have several shorter mono (TS) cables, so I removed the connection to pot leg 3 and jumpered it to pot leg 1 and the pedal works great with a mono cable.  * you are connecting the pedal OUTPUT to the EXP input
