G-System: Recommended expression & volume pedal

Question

Which expression & volume pedal do you recommend for the G-System ?

Answer

Generally speaking, you can use a volume pedal for volume control only,  and any expression pedal with a low impedance pot (25- 50KOhm) for volume or expression control.

At the moment we have successfully tested the G-System with the following volume/ expression pedal (s) :

  • Dunlop GCB-80 high gain volume: Use a Y-split cable from stereo jack in the G-System pedal input, to in and out of the pedal. (for volume control only)
  • Rocktron HEX volume expression pedal: Use the stereo jack (out of the pedal and connect it to G-System pedal in)
  • Korg EXP-2: Use a stereo jack cable from the output of the pedal to the G-System pedal input. (for volume control only)
  • Ernie Ball 6166: Use a Y-split cable from stereo jack in the G-System pedal input to in and out of the pedal. (for volume control only)
  • Ernie Ball Junior 25Kohm
  • Boss FV300 V and H: Use a stereo jack cable from the expression output
  • Roland EV5: A cable is included.
  • TC Helicon Express-1: Use a stereo jack cable.

Additionally, customers have reported success with:

  • Visual Sound 10th anniversary volume pedal: Set to 'passive' mode, and use a Y-split cable from stereo jack in the G-System pedal input, to in and out of the pedal. You will need to unscrew the bottom plate to change between 'active' and 'passive' mode.

This list is not exhaustive! Other brands and models will probably work, but they have not been tested. Some will work with a stereo jacks cable, some with a mono jack cable, some with a Y-Split cable (stereo to 2x mono).
