Electro-Harmonix has debuted its new Cntl Knob static expression pedal.

The New York company's first-ever mini-pedal, the Cntl Knob lets a player set two preset values - representing two positions of a traditional expression pedal - on any pedal with an expression output jack, and toggle between them with its footswitch.

The pedal's EXP 1 Knob selects the first expression setting, while the EXP 2 Knob chooses the second. Fully counter-clockwise is the heel position, while fully clockwise represents the toe-down position.

Elsewhere, there's a TRS+/- button to match the Cntl Knob’s expression polarity to your pedals, plus LEDs that indicate which knob is active.

The Electro-Harmonix Cntl Knob static expression pedal runs from a standard 9V power supply, and is available now - with a six-foot TRS cable - for a mere $39.
