FV-500L vs FV-500H
I would like to know what the differences are between FV-500L vs FV-500H pedals...and yes i've gooogled like crazy, i know that one is stereo/low impendance and the other is mono and high impendance...
what i would like to know is which one is best suited for attaching it to the gt-10 as a 2nd expression pedal
thanks in advance!
I've been looking into these a bit myself, and I'm pretty sure the impedance and mono/stereo only apply to the volume pedal function - these are combination volume and expression pedals. If you're thinking of ever using it as a volume pedal for the guitar, you're going to need the high impedance. I think that's what I'll end up getting just to have some flexibility. But if you only want a 2nd expression pedal, you could save a few bucks by getting an EV-5 (expression pedal only).
Yeah, you're totally right dude...and i actually emailed Boss and this was their reply:
The FV-500H is "high impedance", the FV-500L is low impedance. If you're going to use the FV-500 in the EXP/CTL jack of the GT-10, then this won't make a difference.
If you're going to use the FV as a volume pedal, with your guitar directly connected to it, then the FV-500H would be the one to get.
If you're going to use the FV to control volume of the GT-10 while connected "after the GT-10", then you'd want to get the FV-500L.
I just took a look at the Boss FAQ for the FV-500. For volume pedal use, it says to use the high impedance only when you plugging the guitar straight into the volume pedal (passive pickups). If you want to have any pedals before the FT-500, you need to use the FV-500L because the output from all Boss effects is low impedance. I didn't realize this. I want to be able to also use a volume pedal to control the output level of my JamMan, so I might be getting the FV-500L after all.
