    Pedal steel players will sell you on some brand I don't remember, volume pedals that cost upwards of 300$.

    The best one I've used is the volume on my Roger Mayer Vision Wah Special. Very useful volume range with no tone suck and it's a great wah pedal.
    Another really good one that people don't talk about in terms of being a volume pedal is the Zvex Trem Probe. You can set the maximum volume and minimum and it uses the SHO circuit so can be a good boost too. Only drawback is that you can't set it and leave it.

    I like the ernie ball but it does suck tone. I switched to goodrich l-120. Some people complain about the pots going out, but I've never had an issue.

    I've heard Hilton.
    I play a Goodrich but they are no longer made, I'm told. Hope it's not true.

    Hilton, Goodrich, yeah those.

    I'd buy one if I could justify that much money but I can't. Not for a volume pedal...

    I've been through all the volume pedals essentially, some of them multiple times. I now have a Telonics volume pedal and am over the moon with it. It is the centerpiece of my pedalboard.

    Considering how much I use it, and considering I sold a gold horsie Klon for $1100, I'd gladly pay $500 for the perfect volume pedal all day long.

    Several guys I've let demo this thing immediately went and ordered one.

    Just got the Telonics as well. Certainly a substantial improvement over the Goodrich and Hilton designs. No pots means never having to deal with scratchy, failing pots. :) win.

    I really like the THRU-TONE mod of the EB pedals. Perfect throw, awesome buffer, switchable to passive, etc.

    Hilton or Goodrich. I have a Hilton on my board and it's awesome...never had any problems with it. Solid construction and it's active so it has a buffered output.

    My vote goes to the EB VP junior and get the buffer mod. It's pretty much the industry standard, reliable and not too expensive. Iv just never liked the idea of spending too much on what is effectively a volume pot with a house.

    I love the Ernie Ball volume pedal. The feel of it for me is so great. In terms of the tone issue, you can get them modified fairly cheaply to remove that issue.

    About the time I bought mine I heard that too. That was three or four years ago But there seems to be no shortage of them available. :huh Anyway, no complaints with a Goodrich.
