The Little Loudmouth is an optical version of the classic volume pedal, but with added improvements. Optical control increases the service life of the effect by eliminating the frequent strain and wear on the control potentiometer. The optical sensor also provides for a smoother transition in frequency changes, and eliminates the dreaded "scratchy" potentiometer sound.
Little Loudmouth LLM-2 is an upgraded version of the original LLM-1. The LLM-2 with the foot rocker fully retracted back, provides total silence and muted signal of the input path, while the LLM-1 was designed for non-muted operation. Now you can have total range from full volume to complete silence, all in a small compact pedal that can find space on any pedal board.
Found on the left side of the pedal, is a 3-way toggle switch, offering three different MAX output volumes that the user can choose from. +12 having the greatest output, +6 second, and 0 at line volume.
The LLM-2 pedal has high input impedance of 1MOhm and low output impedance - 10 KOhm which makes it easy to integrate it into any effect chain without signal quality loss.
You need a light touch to dial in the exact volue you want. If all you're looking for is a smaller "ON/OFF" switch, then this is a decent solution. (Maybe invest in a powerless latching kill switch instead...) The option to power it and give input pads toy your signal as well powering other pedals off it it is nice, although i don't use it. Good pedal, has a bit more of a learning curve than you'd expect simply because the sweep is so small it's tough to dial straight into an exact volume setting like on a standard Ernie Ball VP. If you play barefoot I find it's a bit easier to dial in, but if you wear heavy shoes it's pretty hard to be exact with it.
