: Looking for info on an Expression Pedal to purchase for my QS8. Any recomendations, favorites,
: or such. Just not sure of which are compatible and also a good value for the dollar.

: Thanks for any help. : )

All you really need here is a generic volume(midi) pedal. Most midi applications(controllers) have a range of 0-127, expression is one of these controllers and can be assigned in the contollers section of the QS(see manual). A 5k ohm potentiometer is ideal for the QS' pedal jacks. If you take a standard 1/4" instrument cable and attach a 5k ohm pot between the leads of the opposite end of the cable, you will have a basic controller device for the QS. It is not difficult to mount the pot for use as an expession pedal, I have used an old sewing machine pedal's housing as the basis for one of these pedals. Total cost is about 5$. Buying a good pot will payoff with better, more linear control. Hope this helps -Michael
