The Fractal expression/volume pedals are awesome. Love 'em so much I put together a runthru of them, so check it out if you have one on your shopping list.
Here's a look at the EV-1, Mission, and EV-2 lined up, so the Mission is in-between the EV-1 and EV-2 size-wise. The Fractal pedals have the smoothest operation of any pedal I've used. The EV-1 and EV-2 both have more travel than the Mission below. Approximate travel distance heel-to-toe: EV-1: 1-7/8", EV-2: 1-1/2", Mission EP-1: 1-3/8"). The Fractal pedals don't offer any additional options like a switch or spring-load at this time.
So, longer than perhaps you'd prefer. But, according to all reports, the Fractal units are much smoother both in operation and response, so it may be worth getting used to a little more travel.Approximate travel distance heel-to-toe: EV-1: 1-7/8", EV-2: 1-1/2", Mission EP-1: 1-3/8").
The Mission pedals are shorter sweep, which is why they tend to be favored for wah whereas the EV are preferred for finer control like volume.Between the FAS and the Mission pedals, which has a more shallow sweep? I had mission pedals back in my M9 days, now days I use a POD HD500X and an extra cheap line 6 expression pedal. The POD pedal is great; it's optical so a little nicer than a mission (imo) but both the Mission pedal and the pod's pedal have an obnoxiously broad sweep yet wonderfully solid construction. When I played an analog pedal board, I always preferred more shallow wah pedals (Vox mostly but the best feeling sweep I ever came across was oddly Jerry Cantrell's signature wah) and I've yet to find an expression pedal that is accurate/tracks well that also has a shallow range.
It's been 5 years or so since I last had a mission pedal, perhaps I'm conflating Mission with something else.The Mission pedals are shorter sweep, which is why they tend to be favored for wah whereas the EV are preferred for finer control like volume.
If you consider the Mission to have a broad sweep, I'd have to ask what you are comparing it to because most consider it to be a shallow sweep. They are exactly the same as the Dunlop/CryBaby pedals as they are using the same chassis.
