"Yamaha FC7 Volume/controller Foot Pedal"

I have had the Yamaha DG Stomp box for years., and I still use it as the main multi-functional sound processor for my guitar rig. But I never had the paired foot controller. So I finally got one and YES, it does make a big difference of how the DG Stomp operates....I can swell in the selected effects, use the midi functions to create a 'wah' pedal and use it as a volume/blend pedal. The pedal itself is solidly made and exceptionally durable. The connecting cable is attached as part of the pedal, and is intended to be wrapped up onto a 'spool' under the pedal throw after use, which is kinda weird and bugs me out a bit because I am now anticipating for when the cable goes bad due to the stress of winding it up after every use. I wish it was designed to be unplugged cuz then if the cable goes bad I can replace it. Knowing me, I will probably open it up and install an insert jack plug after a while, just so that I won't ever be in a situation wanting to use the pedal and the cable has a short due to be twisted up too many times. One thing good to say, though, is that the length of the cable is generous and allows the pedal to be placed elsewhere with your set up, in case you like all of your pedals arranged together. I don't know how compatible other expression pedals for the DG Stomp would be, so I didn't risk trying another, mostly cuz the DG Stomp is such an awesome box. Too bad it didn't survive with an upgraded model....this box is no longer being made.
