The EV-1 is an all new EXPRESSION PEDAL, perfect for use with all Fractal Audio Systems products (and many 3rd party devices). Unlike most expression pedals it has a nearly linear response with its gearing and a long, smooth pedal throw. The EV-1 doubles as an analog volume pedal, with separate IN and OUT jacks connected to an audio-taper pot. It features a sturdy cast metal housing, comfortable non-slip rubber tread, and is available in either Silver or Black.
Thomas Nordegg, guitar tech to Dweezil Zappa, Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Lukather, Warren Cuccurullo and many more, had this to say about the EV-1: "Your pedals are the total Apex!! So solid... Threateningly perfect!!"
The EV-1 is perfect for use as an expression pedal with all Fractal Audio Systems products and many third-party devices. Its 100K pot and gearing create a nearly linear response, so the position of the pedal corresponds comfortably to sound changes without the need for finnicky footwork.
When you're not using it as an expression pedal, the EV-1 fills in as a high quality 500K high-impedance analog volume pedal. Perfect for use passive pickups with no tone suck.
