By "feel" I also mean the range and taper of the pot inside the pedal. You 
clearly don't like this one.

then how could it feel great if it doesn't do anything?

maybe you need to find somebody else to help you with soldering....

I use the Boss FV-50L pedal, it works fine and controls the volume 
as it should. They are easy for people to find in stores. For me the 
control range and taper feels fine, so I don't have a problem recommending 
it. But that's subjective. If you don't happen to like the range, feel 
to look for something else and let us know what you find. There are a lot 
of pedal options out there and I certainly haven't tried even a fraction 
them. I think Hans once recommended an Ernie Ball pedal with a low 
impedance pot, maybe you will like that one better.

good luck,
