The first product we will be looking at is the Quik Lok VP-2611 Volume Pedal. Let’s face it, sometimes many of us are kind of broke sometimes and can’t really afford to splurge on all the effect pedals for guitar playing we wish we could buy. That’s when we need good budget alternatives that will keep us going at least for a while.
The challenger is the Fender FVP-1 Volume Pedal. Next up is a volume pedal for guitar that is quite different from the other pedals we’ve looked at. Just the way it looks is different, it’s quite big and chunky, a little bit tank-like, but still nice, just different. The second thing that is different about it is that it actually alters your tone. When you lower the volume, it kind of enhances the trebles to create a special effect, which is cool, but important to be aware of, since not everybody likes it.
Another scenario when Quik Lok’s volume pedal would be great is if you’re not quite sure about how much you will use the volume expression pedal. Maybe you just want to try a volume pedal out to see if it’s something for you, or maybe you’ve just started playing the guitar and don’t even know if you’ll be able to keep it up. I mean, the last thing we need is more expensive stuff in the garage or basement that we’re never using, right?
You could say that it’s more like the kind of effect pedal that alters your tone in a cool way, rather than just letting you adjust the volume.
