You want your music to sound great, right? No matter what kind of instrument you play you want to make sure that the music is going to sound great whenever you break out that instrument. With any of these volume pedals, you’re going to have no problem with that and more. You’ll have awesome sound and high quality tools that will help your fans experience your music in an entirely different way. All you have to do is figure out the best pedal and what you’re really looking for, including the type of music you play.
Instrument: What type of instrument does the pedal actually work for? You want a pedal that’s going to work for what you have, after all, which means you need to look at this section to make sure. Some pedals are interchangeable but not all of them are.
Power: Is it battery powered, passive powered or something else? This will help you figure out if the pedal will work for the place you want to use it and how you’re planning on using it. You’ll be able to plan for that next gig that you’re going to be playing.
Material: What is the piece actually made with? Metal is going to be a bit heavier but it’s also going to be more durable and longer lasting. Plastic may be less expensive and it’s going to be lighter weight when you need to transport it anywhere.
Jacks: How many jacks are included? This will affect how you can use the pedal and just what and how it can be connected to. The more jacks the more potential connections but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s better in any way.
Size: How large is the pedal? This will be mostly about personal preference but also about convenience. Do you need a larger or smaller pedal specifically so that you can get the right sound and you can easily use it while you’re playing?
Weight: How much does the pedal weigh? This will affect how easy it is for you to transport it wherever you want to go. You don’t want something super lightweight because chances are it’s not high quality and it’s not going to last, but nothing too heavy either.
Make sure you look at several different options when it comes to choosing a good volume pedal. You don’t want to sacrifice anything, after all, and it can be a little difficult to find something that works for absolutely all of your needs. Just make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into and how it’s going to fit in with your playing style overall.
