well it has been 4 years since i bought my Ernie Ball VP JR but now i started to noticed a rare sound when i push the pedal up...like a broken cable and secondly because i am really starting to think that string it is not a good and reliable thing...mostly on day after day use when i began to tour with the band in which I am. i had played 3 days a week during all the year in the last 4 years, but i think it is time to buy a different volume pedal. i do care about pedalboard friendly size volume pedal...so i was thinking on the new Boss FV-30L or maybe a Dunlop Volume X but well as you know more than me i would like to hear any suggestion. looking for a passive pedal and my budget is 140$. i do a lot of swells and the volume pedal is for me a super essential and super important part of my playing...to let it clear i never play live without a volume pedal...so i need a very good one. Thanks Beforehand.
