    Hey guys, I have an opportunity to pick up one of the EB pan/volume pedals, and I'm wondering, is it a decent mono volume pedal? I've been bothered with scratchy noise from my active goodrich and I don't like the hiss it adds to my signal.
    Thanks,
    Kurt

    ALL EB VOLUME PEDALS SUCK. I have the stereo non pan volume. And talk about a pillow over my amp. I run in a loop and use it for swells. Would much perfer a goodrich maybe Ill go back to my knob on my guitar.

    Yeps, I've been wondering about this quite a bit today.

    I've been planning on buying the EB Jr then read many threads
    and am now considering spending twice the money on a Goodrich.

    But can't make up my friggin mind :NUTS

    The EB's seem to have a love/hate response on the board.

    I just bought a Passive VPJr, and was fairly sure that I'd have to return it due to high-end loss from a lot of what I've read. It has turned out to be absolutely excellent, with a really even sweep (with another sweep on a toggle), and no tone suck/loss of highs at all. It doesn't need batteries and feels tough as hell, too. I'm not looking any further.

    I never had any problems with my EB pedals either. No tone-loss at all.

    What about running the pan one as a mono volume pedal?
    Thanks,
