Volume pedal help

Hi

I'm going to get a volume pedal and need to know what will work. Options arte the Boss 500H or 500L or one of the Ernie Ball pedals (they have 25K and 250K for passive and active, and one that is 500K).

It will be connected after a Line 6 M9 multieffect and the mixer/console, or when the console is too far, I guess maybe a DI box. How do I know which version of the pedal will work for that (for both Boss and Ball)?

In addition I need another volume pedal, either a regular one (similar to the above) or preferably something like the Nose (http://www.nosepedal.com/).

My chain is clarinet pickup (this one http://www.tap.com.gr/index.php?opt...catid=8:2009-06-24-11-32-35&Itemid=71&lang=en), into a Lehle Little Dual (http://www.lehle.com/products/LittleDual/index.php?country=&lang=en) and then into the Line 6 M9.

What pedal version should work before the M9 (after the Lehle) or even right after the pickup? Is there a way to know this? Does anyone know if the Nose should work for this?

Thank you!

With guitar, use the H version (high impedance) between the guitar pickup and the first effect or the amp.

Use the L version between effects, or between the last effect and the amp.

Thanks. I got an answer from the pickup maker and they said for this clarinet pickup I also need a high impedance volume pedal.

It is unclear why use a low impedance pedal after the effects, in my case from effects to mixer/console (no amp). I was told that I need the impedance of the volume pedal to at least match that of the input signal going into it. So why is a lower impedance pedal better at the end than a high impedance pedal? The advantage with the high impedance is I can use it in both places. The advantage of the lower impedance is... what?

Thanks
