The all aluminum switching volume pedal with illuminated base.
At just 1.5lbs, the Aero is half the weight of a standard Mission pedal. The rear cut away and extended length curved surface are ergonomically designed for comfortable use in either standing or sitting positions.
With a passive ‘no tone suck’ circuit, the VM-1 Aero features an isolated tuner output and integrated mode switch. All VM-1 Aero models also include Missions illuminated base. Visible from any position, the transparent acrylic base illuminates indicating selected mode.
Main Output is active with zero volume at heel down and max volume at toe down. Tuner output is disconnected to avoid tone suck. Base illuminates green.
Tuner output is enabled. Main output is attenuated providing reduced volume at toe down, and zero volume at heel down allowing tuning silently, or with a small amount of audio. Base illuminates red.
The VM-1 Aero is intended for use first in the signal chain with passive electric guitar pickups only. For other applications, we recommend the Mission VM-PRO.
Illumination requires a 9V battery (included) or external power supply (not included) 9VDC 2.1mm center pin negative. Power required for LED’s only. Volume controls will function as normal without power.
