    If you have the parts, chops, and time, consider doing what I did with my M5, The expression pedal input is simply looking for a 0-10k resistance between hot and ground at the end of the cable. I dug up a photocell of reasonable dark/light resistance, wired in a resistor in parallel to bring it into an acceptable range (I think it maxed out at 12k), taped it to the top of my guitar, just between the bridge and controls, and "work" it with my pinky. Playing near a light source, or in a bright room, and covering it with your finger, varies the photocell resistance, so you can use it like an expression pedal. Because your finger moves differently (and faster) than your foot, it produces a different feel of expression control. The nice thing about the M5/9/13, is that all parameters of any effect can be controlled with the expression-pedal input, in any direction. So, you could use your pinky to change the speed of the rotary speaker, bring up the gain of a drive pedal as you hold a chord or note, fade in octaves below or above, fade in harmonies, or change the pitch in the Pitch Glide program.

    The caveat is that you can't use it in the dark.

    My board. Boring I know. But it gets the job done with my 68 Princeton Reverb.

    Back shot for those that haven't seen a Nomad board before.. batteries are built in with different voltage settings on the output from 9 to 24V.

    Sounds like a neat project. The small pedal on the top of the board is running to the expression pedal jack. Using the side of my foot to control some parameters

    Here’s the layout for my new board. New year, new setup. I cleaned everything up and switched to Dual Lock to stick the pedals down. Still thinking about it, too much dirt?

    get yourself a Throbby or Swamp Thang trem, ..if trem is what you are looking for

    on another note, awesome to see some high end, boutique pedals/boards again. it felt like we were lacking

    I have a Supatrem, so no big deal to switch it out. Just have to decide which dirt pedal to drop.
