Today I received two Fractal Audio EV-1 Expression Pedals. They will be added to my pedalboard, and will replace my current controller pedals. These expression pedals are beautifully built, and have a special planetary gear system. Like all Fractal Audio products, the EV-1 is engineered as a work of art, and the care that was taken in packing / shipping them should give you some idea of how thoroughly they design their equipment.
From the Fractal Audio web site :
The EV-1 is an all new EXPRESSION PEDAL, perfect for use with all Fractal Audio Systems products (and many 3rd party devices). Unlike most expression pedals it has a true linear response with planetary gearing and a long, smooth pedal throw. The EV-1 doubles as an analog volume pedal, with separate IN and OUT jacks connected to an audio-taper pot. It features a sturdy cast metal housing, comfortable non-slip rubber tread, and is available in either Silver or Black.
Naturally, I bought two black ones I really can’t wait to mount them on my pedalboard.
