View Full Version : Volume Pedal AND expression pedal location

Mind you, I'm not talking about signal path, but where do you like to have your volume pedal and expression pedal located on the board? to the left, to the right, dead center? let me know your thoughts.

I have my volume pedal on the left....It doesn't really matter, just whatever you feel comfortable with while playing.

yeah, that's what I'm trying to figure out, both expression and volume are best next to each other?

I only use a volume pedal, but it's always on the right (or every now and then the center) of my board. I'm apparently right-footed and can't do anything with my left foot...

i like anything like it (including wah) to the right. i just wire around them to arrange the order of the signal chain

I don't use an expression pedal, and I'm right footed, but I find it practical with my chain and way my board is set up to have it to the left, I still use my right foot, doesn't bother me at all...
I say don't just stick with one way, try different placements and find what works best for you.

I have my exp on the right, next to my wah, and my volume on the left. I keep them separated so that that I don't accidentally change one when using the other. They're both EB Jrs so the rockers are at the same height and it's very easy to move both when you only want to move one.

I have a EB Jr. that I use right after my distortion/overdrives and before my mod (delays, phasers, etc.) pedals. And it sets to my left of my board.
Old set up it's changed since then.

It definitely depends on the size of the board for me. I have a pretty big board now, so my volume and expression pedal are in the middle. That way if I need to turn on/off an effect when I'm doing swells, I don't have to go too far to the left or right.
