How about this pedal but with the pilot light changing intensity with the higher-lower the volume...?  
Maybe it can justify it's price this way....
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Hi tboy,  
The Q199 is just the ticket for common requests like The Sounds of Silence or Silence is Golden. Fantastic effect for the schizophrenics all time favorite X-mas song, Do You Hear What I Hear? Gary

Is the emperor really naked?
Has anyone mentioned to this guy that the volume control on your guitar does the exact same thing? That you don't have to bend over to tweak it with your hand? That most guitar volumes have a "passive tone filter" (read: treble-leak cap) installed as well? That a lot of multi-pickup guitars have more than one of these fancy volume-control devices so you can set ea pickup independently? That said independently-set pickup settings may be easily selected using the guitar's on-board pickup selector switch- without bending over to the floor? That although LED indicators for pickup-selection/volume-POT-engagement on the guitar would be nice- they are hardly necessary, due to the proxmity of said guitar controls to the players hands?
