The FV500L is for keyboards only. Minimum volume knob allows you to set the volume to the band. Step on the pedal to go out front for solos, then return to your normal playing volume. Pedal is large, but comfortable. Grips all floors well. Unless you're familiar with these pedals, you need to know that the FV500L (Low gain)is for keyboards and the FV500H (High gain)is for guitars.
They do not tell you this in the description of the pedals. Rule of thumb: If it is stereo, then it's keyboard. Keyboards have stereo outputs. Guitars Mono Works great with my Roland Keyboard Hope this helps someone.

I first had the FV-300L. It began to slip after about a year of moderate to light use ( 2 gigs a month ). The warranty had just expired. I purchased the FV-500L because it was updated and the promise was that the slip problem had been addressed. Worked great for 2 years of the same usage and then did the same thing. I really like the pedal. It has a smooth gain and other features set it apart. Unfortunately it is a disposable product. It is not built to last and it always makes more sense to buy a new one than to pay to have it repaired. The quest continues. Also, their service department is staffed by a snotty bunch.

    Comments about Boss FV-500L Stereo Volume Pedal:

    I needed a pedal to help me get my volume right at shows....Using the gtr volume control and or a volume pedal in front of my pedal board just changes the drive into the FX. I get everything nicely balanced in the studio or at home, and then each venue has odd sound characteristics and sometimes I am too loud in my rhythm and too soft in my leads & no time to get everything adjusted just right. So I wanted a simple master volume pedal after all the FX and before the amp...(did not want to hassle with more cables needed for the FX loop). I have tried them all…none worked well for me….Well, here is what I learned: This pedal has a min volume control which allows more accurate setting of the pedal to the volume I need mid-song. This control was key, allowed me to zero in on the volume easily as small changes in the pedal position did not produce huge changes in volume. The pedal does not cut the quality, at least not in noisy bars and restaurants. So it's very good. But the real point is after years of not doing the volume thing well with my right foot I discovered that I was much better at the task using my left foot...and I am right handed!! This has changed everything. Turns out, the issue was my right leg is way sturdier to stand on and control the volume with my left foot. If you have a problem with this type of thing, just try your other foot. The pedal and this simple foot change basically solved the issue. I am not perfect, but way better than before and I get better with each gig!!

    Rock Solid & Smooth As Silk

    By Richard Auvil

    from Blairsville, PA

    Comments about Boss FV-500L Stereo Volume Pedal:

    I've had this pedal for about two weeks and I'm very pleased with it! I've used it as a monophonic, single-instrument pedal, and as a volume control for a P.A. system. It's well-engineered and very heavy duty. My favorite feature is the adjustable feel because I tend to be a lead foot with pedals. The Boss works well with active and passive systems. Upright bass and all of the other basses & guitars (active and passive) produce clean, amplified tones with adequate volume variance and no loss of fidelity. It is a simple machine that provides noise-free volume change; just what I was looking for! As a former Ernie Ball volume pedal user, I must say that this is a definite step up!

    Comments about Boss FV-500L Stereo Volume Pedal:

    Fantastic construction. Using logarithmic/audio taper pots creates such an abrupt volume change at the end of travel. I'm not sure why that's done so much. Even guitars with logarithmic/audio taper pots are hard to adjust for mid volume settings. For me this is a set-and-forget main volume setting for my rig, so it will be perfect for that.

    Does what it should.

    By Nick Perry-Guetti

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about Boss FV-500L Stereo Volume Pedal:

    This is not an "effects pedal", but a workhorse device essential to my rig in two different ways. Well, three really. It serves as the main volume control on my guitar rig, allowing me to shift between quieter, cleaner sound and louder, crunchier sound. It also allows me to produce very violin-like tones by doing a volume swell with my foot while playing notes. Third, it's an expression pedal. Hardly anything to say about this, except that it enhances my rig extensively & reliably.

      Comments about Boss FV-500L Stereo Volume Pedal:

      I am a keyboard player. During live performances I use an in-line volume pedal to control a rack mounted midi driven sound module. A common example is to have the sound module set on a nice string patch and be able to fade it in when needed via the volume pedal. I have always used Roland volume pedals for the same reason I play Roland keyboards; excellent quality. The "L" in the model FV-500L stands for "Low-Z". This is what you want for keyboards, not guitars. You will need a "Hi-Z" pedal for guitars. But, the bottom line is this is an excellent quality in-line volume pedal for keyboards that even includes a jack for an "expression control".

      ROCK SOLID PEDAL

      By larry newman

      from Portland Oregon

      Comments about Boss FV-500L Stereo Volume Pedal:

      This is the pedal you want. It is man size and solid under your foot. Best of all it has a smooth action, and low volume adjustment. I use it on my stereo keyboards. Boss also makes a FV-50, it is lighter and smaller. For stage or studio, I would use this FV-500.

        My last Roland pedal survived many years of live shows. I was sad when I had to retire it as I use the volume pedal a lot as part of my playing style. The new FV500 does the job and then some!

        I use the pedal as a keyboard stereo volume pedal; it is solid, durable, quiet, and the pedal operates smoothly. No problems in over a year. Exactly what I want in a volume pedal.
