    Not at all that I have seen. I also am really interested in especially the "fuzz-wah" but also the others too.

    Hope your thread gets lots of responses!

    I think the pedal in the picture is a volume-Tone pedal. Volume works as a EB Jr. but you slide the footpad left or right to increase or decrease treble!

    Prett cool idea. The other pedals in the series are a fuzz where the side-to-side motion sets fuzz intensity, while the up-down does wah.

    Pretty cool!

    Wow! I'm shocked that Fender reissued that pedal, that's was one of their coolest products ever that wasn't a guitar or amp.
    I have two of those pedals from the '50's for my Fender steels, and they're a lot more useful in that application than a straight volume pedal.
    For standard guitar playing I prefer not to use pedals if I can get away with it, but you gotta admit a pedal that gives you a little volume/EQ tweak with your foot is a good idea.

    Cool!

    peace

    I agree.

    I don't use my tone knob enough but my foot is on the volume pedal almost all the time (I don't use that knob either :eek:). This is a great idea for a product if it works as well as it is supposed to.

    i'm going to assume that it stays in place, right or left, unless you physically move it. Is that right?
