(The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA – January 25, 2018) – When Ernie Ball (Booth 5220, D5), the world’s premier manufacturer of guitar strings, musical instrument accessories and volume pedals, first introduced its original Volume Pedal in 1977, guitarists around the world immediately embraced it for its expression, reliability, rugged construction and ability to perform flawlessly night-after-night.
The Ernie Ball 40th Anniversary Volume Pedal (VP) celebrates the original volume pedal by introducing a luxurious limited-edition slate black aluminum chassis for a striking appearance both on and off stage. A redesigned ultra-durable PVC-coated Kevlar® cord improves potentiometer traction for precise volume control and a super-smooth foot sweep. The 40th Anniversary VP features a switchable taper for two distinct swell rates.
Inspired by the rugged construction of the original, the pedal’s compact machined aluminum housing is virtually indestructible, and its sleek, compact Jr-sized pedal chassis allows the unit to have a minimal footprint on stage or as part of a pedal board. The 40th Anniversary VP is engineered to work with both active and passive audio signals; it has a tuner output for tuning at any volume level and a rugged black mat pedal surface with the iconic Ernie Ball Eagle for non-slip action.
The Ernie Ball 40th Anniversary Volume Pedal is available now at $129.99 SRP/MAP.
