    You know like how they have volume pedals but its like the tone knob on your guitar.

    I am a tone knob junkie and if they built an expression pedal that I could control with my foot that would be pretty cool.

    Any makers?

    grab a volume pedal and solder a capacitor to the volume pot.

    Make it switchable so you'll keep your volume pedal.

    Beat me to it, though obviously that isn't what OP wants.

    I could build you a tone knob in a Wah shell, but think you'd be underwhelmed.

    No, CMs got it right and they can be really useful for some people ..... they are mostly used by pedal steel players and youll recognize the sound as soon as you start playing with it - its like ~ turn your volume and tone controls down most of the way - then hit some harmonics and reach over and whip both vol and tone up at the same time ..... and then try just truning up the volume and whipping the tone up at the last second and many other variations .... subtle and not so subtle stuff you could never do with your hands and play at the same time (duh)

    The BOSS FW-3 does wah and tone control, depending on how the "Q" knob is set. I have one to sell, btw... lol
