    What really small expression pedals are available - I like the concept of the Peep, but not sure if this is still being made or if its even currently available. Was also considering this one:

    but wasn't sure if I could really use my foot to work the knob.

    Does anybody know if there are any other options available now (last thread on this I think was back in 2010).

    I see the Mini Peep is still in there:

    The only caveat is that you need a consistent light source for it to work, so if you're onstage and the lights are going on/off, the Peep might be adversely (or serendipitously) affected. A solution might be to have a mini (book reading) lamp hovering over/near the Peep to give it a stable light source.

    Yeah looks like Dan is still making the Peep. Any of his many expression pedals would do. Muffin Man made a good point about the peep. Perhaps just a tap tempo pedal might suite you better for this application? What is the pedal for?

    Dan makes incredible stuff! Stand up dude.

    I use two mini expression pedal on my board to control a DD7 and a Timeline. It takes a few hours to get used to it. Works great and takes no place.

    EF - The main application is to control the cutoff frequency on the filter of a Fairfield Circuitry Four Eyes Fuzz. So I'm not sure how a tap tempo pedal would work - but maybe it can (??). I might also use it in a Boss PS-5 I just picked up to control pitch shifts and whammy effects.

    Grozeil - is the knob on the mini-expression pedal really big enough to control with your foot? I guess it should be, but I couldn't find any dimensions for it on the T1M website. Thanks.

    Yes, the only deal is to put it on the side of your board to touch it gently and easily with your foot.

    Grozeil, Great, thanks for the info - I might give the mini and peep both a try to see which one works better.
