    Am close to pulling the trigger on the mini Dunlop, what else should I look at? I need it to be small, that’s really my only req!

    I’ve got a Morley I’ve been using for years, but it takes up wayyyy too much space.

    You can get a long/thin Tapestry Audio Bloomery. It’s 2.5x the price, but this is TGP so what the hell.

    Mini Dunlop is great imo. No need to look elsewhere.

    Mini dunlop is great.
    Had the Dod volume which was a piece of s**** (Dod sent me 3 replacement pedals over 6 months...)
    You can buy the Dunlop with confidence!

    I wish Dunlop would make a low impedance mini-volume

    For just a few more bucks I would look at the Moyo mini volume.
    It's a one man operation, his shop is on Reverb.

    If you like the feel and response of an Ernie Ball, this is a shrunken version of that.
    Keeps your tone pretty intact (for a passive pedal), and feels very sturdy under foot (though it's super light being made of aluminum).

    I have tried several mini volumes. Morley, AMT, Mooer, DOD.
    Nothing suited me better than the Dunlop. I have two of them.

    That said, if I were to buy another, I'd go with the Moyo in a heartbeat. Hand built in Denver, Colorado. Made for pedal steel, but sounds great with guitar.

    Any feedback on the Mini Dunlop as an expression pedal also?

    Cool!

    Quick note: I asked him to reverse the In and Out, as I prefer my Out cable to run in front of the pedal (just like my EB). You may find this a good option too.

    Mooer, smallest and cheapest out there.
    Well build.

    The expression jack (Aux output w/ EXP switch selected) on the DVP4 is low impedance (10k). Just make a TRS -> 2 x TS cable and you're in business. Works great.
