Is there an expression pedal that can control 2 pedals?

As I mentioned a month or so ago, and again in a thread last night, what I'd like to do is mod a Fender Vol / Tone pedal so I could have a single pedal with dual axis controls, and wire it up as a dual expression pedal.
:idea::love::)

 

I dont know what those look like on the inside but that should be pretty easy to do.

Well really the pots are already there so you would just connect the lugs directly to the output jacks for each expression function. I dont think the pedal is too expensive so you could probably try it pretty easy. I figure both pots would be about 250k most likely so Im not sure if it would work well for many pedals.

I have always thought a neat product would be a small switcher box with one expression pedal input and say three outputs that could be used individually or in any combination for the expression heavy board

 

Same, and I actually had a pedalbuilder make me one of these, but he never made it and kept my money.:mad:

That's the only questionable part - can I swap out the pots for different values? If the stock pots are standard sizes and accessible, I don't see it as being a difficult mod at all, but until I see the guts, I can't know for sure...

 

If anyone has one, or knows where I can view a gutshot online, I'd appreciate a pic or a link. :):wave:

A lot of expression-type pedals dont have standard pots that you can just buy. Invariably you have to make a D-shaft pot or get some strange value or size. I would call fender tech support and as what the values of the pots in that pedal are and see what they say.

Moog MP-201

The new Moog Music MP-201 can control 4 CV pedals at once and has loads of extra features.

Try any Volume pedal with 2 In's and Outs and 2 Insert Cables. An Insert Cable has 2 mono ends into one stereo end that is used to add effects to a Mixing Board. I use an old Korg KVP-001 volume pedal to do that. Both Korg, Roland and others make Volume pedals with 2 In and Outs. :)

Yeah, but I really don't want to spend $500 on an expression pedal. I'd rather have multiple pedals.

How about $69 for a Korg EXP2!:thu:

 

Here's Volume pedal with 2 In's and Outs. Then get 2 Insert Cables. An Insert Cable has 2 mono ends into one stereo end. You plug the mono ends of the cable into the EXP's in and out and the stereo end into the CV input.

OK, bumping this old thread.

 

So I have two Moogerfoogers - and I'm about to buy the Moog EP-2.

 

Is there a Y splitter cable with a female jack on one end and two 1/4 male jacks on the other, so that I can plug the 1/4" end of the EP-2 into the female end, then the other two into each of the moogerfoogers...

 

if that makes sense.
