Which Volume Pedal?

Post by Monsta-Tone » Tue Jan 31, 2012 10:18 am

I am having a hell of a time turning my guitar down during vocal parts! I can't seem to get the timing right between turning the volume pot on the guitar, changing channels, and stepping up to the mic!

I'm thinking of trying a volume pedal, but I'm also running out of room on my board!

Here is what I need:
Minimum Volume setting

Or......what do you guys use to turn down during vocals?

Try an effect called "ducking". It cuts the volume in the presence of another signal, usually vocals. Some compressors have it, as well as some multi FX. It's automatic, so no stomping.
