Expression Pedals - this may be a silling qu

Post by stoneboy26 » Mon Jun 22, 2009 2:11 am

Long story short I am looking at getting a G-Major2 and will eventually be looking at the likelihood of running 2 expression pedals to perform Mod functions on it. 1 as Vol and 1 as Exp (eg, for wah, etc).

I am unable to find in the manuals for either the GCP or the G-Maj2 any reference to what pedals specs are recommended (eg. 25k, 250k, 500k), so am wondering what everyone uses, and does it really make a difference when it is getting converted into a midi signal?

Also - any recommendations??

Just about any passive volume or expression pedal can be used with the Ground Control Pro. The key is they must be passive. The Ground Control Pro uses TRS jacks for the expression pedal ports so you will need a stereo cable to connect a keyboard type expression pedal or an insert cable to connect a volume pedal.
