Please help me find a small, active volume pedal with Hilton quality.

    I've been through just a couple volume pedals and the best I've tried so far is a Hilton. But it is just to big to fit on my board and it really won't work on the side the way my signal is routed. I need it to be about the size of a WAH pedal, or an Ernie Ball VP Jr. as long as the input jacks are along the top.

    It is going to be in my signal path the whole time and I need, obviously, no tone suck, a usable sweep and reliability.

    Thanks for your input!

    Mission VM-Pro seems to fit your requirements perfectly. I have one and really dig it.

    +1. I went with this after passing on the Hilton for size and weight reasons. It's been a great choice. And it's much cheaper.

    I have a Mission VM-Pro and it's not working for me.

    I'll look into the EB MVP. Any others?

    Out of curiosity, what don't you like about the VM-Pro?

    For me, the volume goes from 0-90 a little too fast for my big foot.

    I looked into the sonuus voluum but it doesn't fit my size and voltage/current requirements.

    if you have a compressor and tremolo pedal aswell as a noise gate on your board you could easily make space as its all included.

    Reviewing tons of threads on this, the answer appears to be that there isn't one unless you spend heavy and even then...:dunno

    If anyone ever agrees on this, we should sticky that thread IMMEDIATELY!

    I don't have the VM-Pro but I do have Mission expression pedals, and if it's the same chassis with the same sweep range, I would definitely agree. The expression pedal is basically a Crybaby chassis, which has too short a sweep range for volume. The EB MVP has a much longer sweep.

    Is this a new offering from EB? I haven't seen it before; looks amazing.
    Any reports of tone-suck or anything? No need to be modded?

    It's not that new. I think its been out for more than a year. No tone suck because there is a buffer inside and eliminates the problem of tuner out on VP Jr.
