Has anyone out there ever used a Morley volume pedal for PSG? I like them because they don’t have pots and are very quiet. I have a Goodrich but it’s high maintenance. The cord has broken once and the pot needs frequent cleaning.

Mark, I have owned a Morley volume pedal since the 70s and while it's never failed for guitar it just doesn't work for pedal steel. The pedal sits too tall and the angle is wrong for sitting at the steel. Try it yourself and you will see. I have 4 Goodrich volume pedals and a few Ernie Ball as backup. Just get a new Bradshaw or Goodrich pot and string and it will last for years, or go with a Hilton or Telonics and have a no pot pedal. The reasons for so many pedals is because I have multiple rigs set up and I'm too lazy to swap pedals at playing time.

Lots of options for new pedals that don't have pots including Telonics, Hilton and Lehle. If you go with the new pots that use conductive plastic wipers and tracks instead of carbon you will not have to worry about a new pot for many years.

And, when you change the pot, replace the string with braided masons cord. That stuff lasts forever.

Or if you want to send me your Goodrich pedal, I will be happy to do the repair work inc. new Goodrich Pot, String, lubricate and adjust.

For a nominal charge.

Have used one for decades. Modified it to lower its impedance and sensitivity to hum and varying light conditions, and to get the taper I prefer … I use a buffer before the VP so low impedance VPs work best in my setups. Am quite happy with my Morley – angle and hight – under an S10, but if I hadn't been able to modify it to suit me it wouldn't have worked.
