EP-3 sudden rise near full position

Postby JnGd » Sun Feb 22, 2015 12:11 pm

Hi,

bought EP-3 pedals yerterday,
noticed that there is a sudden rise when just about near full acting position,
is that particularity could be qualified "normal" to all of you ?

Hi,

I thought it was related to sounds I was working with but no...I looked inside at two of them...
I think it is the pedal potentiometer, the sweepers inside it goes off track when the pedal is pressed all the way down...

To avoid that rise, I have to turn the "setting potentiometer" just about ¼ turn backward...
Looks like they're all like that...B100K72 (pedal), B100K (setting knob)

The felt pads on both ends of the pedals are relatively not to compressed...as, I understood,
could contribute to the "overcoursing sweepers"...

What improvement can be done or what am I missing here...again ?

Did you ever solve this problem? I am trying choose between pedals and wondering if the EP3 might be desirable....

Hi,

I never said there was a problem...I was wondering if it was a particularity of the product as all four units do behave same way.
They are built like bulldozers, but I feel they can't just make it over the hill...and far away!
I need more time to experiment with these pedals...before posting any other comments !
I still use them with cables provided.
Just watch your levels when near fully pressed down...was it design on purpose as to have a possible overload signal at the end ?
I think so...it's the operator's choice...
