Compact TRS, Compact TS, Micro TRS, Micro TS
Saturnworks compact and micro expression pedals provide expression capability for a variety of devices form manufacturers such as EHX, Moog, Boss, Strymon, Line 6 and Eventide. An included Dunlop rubber knob cover makes the compact expression easy to adjust on the fly.
Expression pedals fall into two broad categories: devices that use the more common TRS (stereo) connections and less common TS (mono) connections. EHX, Boss, Strymon, and Moog use TRS, while Line 6 and Eventide use TS. Please consult with your device’s owner’s manual or contact us to help determine which type of expression your device requires.
The default configuration for the TRS expression pedal* is a 10k linear pot with a TRS jack with the tip set as the wiper. This is the same configuration as the well-known Roland EV-5 expression pedal and will work with most TRS compatible devices. Upon purchase, we will contact you to make sure that the pedal is set up to work with your device. We want it to work the first time. If you have any questions regarding the compatibility of your device, please contact us.
TRS expression pedals must be connected with a ¼” TRS (stereo) patch cable to work properly. We have TRS cables available here.
