"Don't waste your money. Mine died after 90 days. Too lightweight."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Pedal travel is too short to allow precise volume control. Sometimes, it seemed to work erratically (which can be disastrous).
Don't waste your money. I bought this because I didn't want to pay $150 for the heavier-duty EV-7. But the EV-5 is exactly what most reviewer claim: it's a lightweight, overpriced piece of junk. I wish I'd listened to them. After 90 days of light use, the EV-5 started behaving completely erratically, producing sudden bursts of high volume or suddenly dampening all sound. Naturally, this occurred just before a performance...
We'll see. It too many phone calls to get through to the correct department. First they said it wasn't covered by warranty. Then they checked and said "OK." I sent it back on warranty. They say they'll fix it, but it seems that the problem is in the design, not a defect, so we'll see. . .
I'm buying an EV-7, which while grotesquely overpriced will, hopefully, last more than 90 days.
