Ernie Ball Vp Jr. Sweeping Probelm With The M13

Recommended Posts

I bought an Ernie Ball VP JR active 25k recently. I'm trying to use it as an expression pedal for my M13, but even after calibrating from heel to toe, it still doesn't sweep correctly. I'm not sure if this is a common issue with the EB pedals or if my unit is defective.


There is a possibility that I'm calibrating it wrong as well. Any help is very much appreciated, thank you!

I had to modify my EB VP Jr (the guy who sold it to me said it was the 25K but it was actually 250K).  Once I modified (added 27k resistor and a DPDT switch) it I was able to get it to work, but I've noticed that in the heel-down position it's pretty unstable and touchy.  The rest of the transition is pretty smooth for me.
