It’s huge but it’s also surprisingly light weight. Because it’s so big it feels good under your foot. The resistance (which is adjustable) is, to me, just right because instead of fighting against you, it’s follows you like a shadow. The volume taper is pretty steep. Once you get the pedal to about 40% open, you’ve got 90% volume. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just something to get used to. What would be great is if you could adjust the taper of the volume. Maybe there’s a mod floating around on the interwebs? You can set the minimum volume which could be useful for using it as a boost right before an overdrive pedal whereby you set the minimum volume and put the pedal all the way down and when you want to melt some faces, you can open up the pedal all the way to slam the overdrive into...overdrive. I put the volume pedal after distortion and before modulation. That way I can swell into the modulation, delay, and reverb while preserving the trails of the effects that come after the volume once the volume is all the way down. My biggest gripe would be that the jacks are recessed into the enclosure. You can use a 90 degree connector for the top of the pedal, but it’s a juggling act. The side jack for the tuner can only be used with a straight connector. As it would happen, because the pedal is so big, it takes its own entire section of my pedalboard, so space at the top of the pedal wasn’t an issue. I did opt to use straight jack connectors from the read more top because I had the space and I didn’t want to stress the connectors on a 90 degree jack. Overall it’s a good volume pedal. I dinged it one star because of the volume tapering and recessed jacks. I still think it’s a better volume pedal than the others in its price range, but there are better volume pedals out there.
