    Effector 13 was planning on making a super small volume/expression pedal called the MEVP. They canned it.

    I only use the volume pedal (Ernie Ball) for swells, but the thing takes up 1/5th of my board! I really want to free up some real estate. Auto-swell pedals like the Slow Gear are just too unpredictable for the kind of swells I want to do, and using the volume knob on the guitar is just not going to work.

    Does any one know of teeny tiny volume pedals? The Ernie Ball Junior is barely smaller than the original.

    I've heard that in some cases sewing machine pedals can be modded...

    I could get a ZVex Tremolo Probe but it's a lot of $$$ to save some board space.

    DOD FX-17

    They've been out of production for a while but aren't that hard to find.

    The George Dennis GD-20 takes up less square footage (inchage) than the EB Jr. and you will not find a bad review of the GD. And it's optical.

    I was thinking about having one made, because all I have seen are too big for my needs, also...

    I forgot about the DOD... I didn't realize how small it is!

    And that George Dennis GD-20 looks great too!

    Wow, thanks guys.
