Unless you need a digital and/or stereo pedal, this is the ultimate choice. Awesome volume pedal. Works great. And not 2 pricey second hand either.
Where Obtained: NZ Rockshops
Features:
In addition to the obvious, the pedal comes with a taper microswitch on the inside (a bit hard to find.. its behind the tuner output) that evens the taper of the pot throughout the travel of the pedal.

It has a tuner output, which could be useful, depending on your tuner.

All the jacks are on the front which is very preferaable.

The pedal is ANALOG and MONO.

Can't expect any more from an analog mono volume pedal.
Sound Quality:
It doesn't discolour my sound. It works great. What more can u say about a volume pedal.
Ease of Use:
Doesn't get any easier. It is as Plug n Play as it gets.

It feels great when using it. Very solid. And it has a good amount of tension (not too easy/difficult to move it).

The size of the pedal is great for large-ish feet.

Try using your taper switch. Doesnt do a whole lot really, but maybe you prefer it one way than the other.
Durability:
SOLID-AS!

Be as aggressive as u can. It'll last for years. The thing weighs, and feels like a tank. Gotta love it.

The Best volume out there!!! And it requires no power!!! Runs off of a volume pot like what would be in your guitar. Pretty cool. Also has taper swtich to change the sweel rate when you push it down.
Sound Quality:
Crystal Clear.
Ease of Use:
It's a volume pedal!!!
Durability:
All metal construction. Open parts, but all you need to get the switch un-crackly is some tuner cleaner that you can find at Radio Shack.

Excellent. This is the industry standard in volume pedals, and it does the job for me, no questions asked.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $70.00 (new)
Where Obtained: ZZounds.com
Features:
What else do you need? Has the standard inputs and outputs, plus a handy tuner out. It also comes with a taper adjustment knob, but I am not sure what exactly that does.
Sound Quality:
It simply allows you to control the volume of your guitar. There is no added noise at all.
Ease of Use:
Large pedal for my size 12s. Very easy to use and adjust.
Durability:
Ways a ton and is built like a tank.
