        Comments about Roland EV-5 - Expression Pedal:

        I use this pedal as an expression/volume pedal with my tc electronic nova system. I chose this particular pedal because it plugs straight into the nova system making it simple to use. It is also a great value compared to the alternatives. The pedal opens up a whole world of possibilities on my nova system. I'm having great fun with it.

        Comments about Roland EV-5 - Expression Pedal:

        I own a couple Ernie Ball VP Jr volume pedals, and while these pedals are superior to the Roland EV-5 in terms of build quality and feel, they're heavy. I'm putting together a small pedalboard for bus and train travel and so weight is my primary concern. I picked up the FV50H for use with guitar as well as this EV-5 expression pedal. So far they're working out great.

        I do however wish that Roland would install a TRS jack on the pedal instead of using an attached cable. I used one of these EV-5 pedals back in the 90's and it eventually stopped working due to the cable going bad.

          Comments about Roland EV-5 - Expression Pedal:

          I just received my EV-5 Expression Pedal,& so far I really like it! It's light weight, so easy to gig with. The knob for controlling the amount of sweep,works well.I use it with a Space Echo and a Polyphase to contol oscillation.It seems to work well with the Space Echo.The only thing negative thing about the pedal is that it is made out of plastic. For the price I think it should be made with a sturdier material.Otherwise, it is the best Expression Pedal I've tried.

              Comments about Roland EV-5 - Expression Pedal:

              The usable range of the pedal is about HALF what it should be, IE going from heal down zero position the pedal outputs 0 till at least half way THEN starts going up. Really bad. Looking for a way to fix it, but why should I have to tear apart a 70$ item to get it to work.

                The Roland EV-5 works well as a volume controller with my Nord Electro 2 organ patches. Very easy to use and quite responsive. Sensitivity can be callibrated to your personal tastes. Seems to be sturdy enough -- I'll have to see how it holds up over time. Good value for the money.

                Comments about Roland EV-5 - Expression Pedal:

                I am using this pedal on an Alesis QS6.1 keyboard with no problems. The build quality seems ok, but for the money for a single use pedal I thought it might have been built a little bit more robust. (all plastic) The Alesis version is also a volume pedal and is made of metal.

                      The EV-5 Expression Pedal works as described.

                      It is sturdy, but does not weigh much.

                      At this price, I was expecting a better build quality but this is plastic. It works great and I did not notice dead zone like in other reviews. I'm using it with my MIDI keyboard and I can use it for many reasons with my Home Studio.
