Igor Expression Pad

£30.00 inc. VAT

Easy, real-time control of effects pedal parameters!

A small, light expression pedal with no moving parts.

Has dual sensitivity.

Use with foot or by hand!



We all like to have some real-time control of effects when possible, so instead of carrying round big rocker ‘wah wah’ style expression pedals, Rainger FX uses our pressure-sensitive expression pad, ‘Igor’. It’s called ‘Igor’ because it first came into being as the assistant to our Dr Freakenstein Fuzz (now discontinued).

All our pedals that use an Igor are already supplied with one (other than the Stealth). However, if yours goes missing you can order a replacement from us – from this page.

The pad is 55mm in diameter, no moving parts and very light (35 times lighter than a standard cast metal treadle-type pedal!!!). It has dual sensitivity; use it shiny side up on a hard stage, or with shoes, standing – or rubber side up if you’re barefoot or sitting down. Or use it by hand. It’s approximately 57cm long.

It’s not as precise as a ‘rocker’ style expression pedal, but is a simple solution to foot-controlled expression on-the-fly!

NOTE; Igor comes with a 3.5mm stereo mini jackplug (sleeve unconnected), and is designed for use with Rainger FX products…. Might work with someone else’s? Maybe, we don’t know – depends on the type of expression pedal they’d normally use, but you’d probably need a 1/4″  adaptor to use it.

We’ve stopped making our 1/4″ version BTW.

Can Igor be used as an expression pedal with other brands?

Possibly – all pedals vary. You would have to test it for yourself, or contact the brand and ask them.

What is the maximum and minimum resistance?

Igor goes from several mega-Ohms down to tens of Oms when pressed.

What sort of jackplug does it have?

It’s a 3.5mm minijack, with the sleeve unconnected, and the variable resistance between the ring and tip.
