Mark Knopfler’s Morley Volume Pedal

Mark used this volume pedal in the early days, from the point Dire Straits started playing together. It’s possible that he used it on “Brothers and Arms” (the song) as well, but at some point, he switched to an Ernie Ball Volume Pedal. Unfortunately, it’s unknown when exactly this switch happened.

Also, I use a Morley volume pedal, which I like because it’s so dependable, and an MXR analog delay, the little green box: I used it on the beginning of “Down To The Water Line” [Dire Straits].
