Expression pedal for multi-use, what do I buy?

Hi,
I'd like to add an expression pedal to my arsenal. My pedals may change so I'm looking for something that would work with a lot of different pedals (not at the same time).

I've tried doing my homework but get lost in impedance and pot values. And I haven't really understood the difference between volume and expression pedals (different taper?).

I'm hoping for suggestions on a good allround solution, but right now it'd be most interesting for me to control either a Diamond Memory Lane2 or an Empress VMSD.

If the expression pedals perform the double task of doing volume as well, that's great I assume.

Thanks,

Carl

The boss volume pedal (built like an absolute tank) has a jack out to be used as an expression pedal.

Ah, I see! Looking at the values for FV-500H VS FV-500L it seems 500L would be more guitar friendly, am I right?

From the Boss Spec sheet:

Potentiometer Values
FV-500H:
250K - Volume
10K - EXP

FV-500L:
20K - Volume
10K – EXP
