    Do you think it's possible to create a 1/4 input that controls the mix level via an expression or volume pedal? I love cranking the mix on some parts, especially volume swells. But on others, keeping the mix around 2pm sounds a lot better and adds a little more depth.

    I assume I could e-mail the maker of the pedals, but I want to know if anyone has thought about this or tried it?

    Not when using hall 2 :AOK

    That's definitely my favorite setting and gives me the exact reverb tone I was looking for, outside of the spring from my solemate.

    I also keep the level around 8:30, lol, dime the mix and keep the level low.

    How does this work? You remove the knob cover, attach the plug, and it automatically controls the parameters of the knob?

    That's pretty much what I'm looking for, saves a lot of money that would have otherwise been spent on getting a volume pedal and the mod.

    Exactly! And as you move the treadle up and down, it turns the knob clockwise or counter-clockwise.

    Easy!:

    Oh, I thought it changed the parameters electronically.

    So it manually turns the knob for you? How does that work.

    That's not just a wire - there's a cable in there. And as you move the treadle on the 3rd Hand pedal, it twists the cable which is attached to that cap that replaces the knob on your pedal of choice. So it mechanically turns the knob for you as you move the treadle. Check it:

    Tiiiiight. Music123 has one of these, so I can get this and a pt-2 w/ hardshell case for about $220, using the $50 off coupon.
