So my left arm is bugging me a little today and I wanted to give it a rest by using my roland fr3x (or possibly my elkavox 83 + Asimov box + roland 1080 combination) but I hate that there is no expression with the bellows closed.

Every time I think about this I end up going to the music store and getting intimidated, since none of them know a thing about accordions and I know nothing about guitar pedals. The last store I went into tried to sell me something with a bunch of distortion switches in it, which would be useless to me. (or so I think?)

Has anyone else done something like this?
If so what are you using?

I was thinking a simple volume pedal between the accordion and my kc-550 amplifier should do the trick, but then the stereo output of the accordion always comes into question and I wonder if I need a small mixer as well...

or is there a better option that I am missing?

The item your looking for is a stereo (low Inpedance) volume pedal - Such as a Boss or Roland product (same maker) they can be found on ebay for $25 to $75 USD JIM D.
