There is a nice little app called 'FB-Mix'[1] a friend of mine wrote for

A simple mixer applet for the system tray

FB-Mix is designed to sit in the Fluxbox system tray and popup an
alsamixer window when clicked. No doubt it works with other window
managers too.

As of version 0.2 volume can also be adjusted using the mouse
scrollwheel when hovering over the icon.
