Rubber May Leave Marks! Buyer Beware: The rubber on this pedal may leave marks. I left the pedal resting upside down on my wooden desk for a while and it left the stain you see in the attached picture. Now if I leave the pedal sitting anywhere for an extended period of time, I put a paper towel or something under it just to be safe.Other than the staining rubber, the pedal has worked well for me with my old Roland synthesizer. 4Exactly what you expect. Works perfectly, I have used for keyboard and guitar pedal control. Solidly built, exactly what you would expect.The step response is reliable, and appropriately pressure. I do worry about liquid spills, but haven't had any problems yet. 5Be advised: This sustain pedal does not have a ... Be advised: This sustain pedal does not have a polarity switch. This means that its polarity will be reversed for some keyboards (like mine... a Casio electric piano, as well as my Alesis VI61 MIDI controller). Basically, when you don't have the pedal pressed, it will sustain your notes... and when you press it, your notes will be unsustained (cut short). So the reverse of the sustain may happen, depending on your keyboard.Yes, I tried several online remedies, however, to now avail. 1Durable and functional - especially for live use These sustain pedals take some getting used to, but they are much better for live use than the sustain pedals that operate more like a traditional sustain pedal, in my opinion. Here's why:1) They don't have reliability issues - All traditional sustain pedals I have used (e.g., Yamaha FC4) develop problems with the actual mechanism (this includes models from Yamaha, On Stage and M Audio). They typically go down right in the middle of a live show, and either don't sustain or leave the sustain on at all times. Not fun. These little pedals never fail. I have had one for over 20 years, and it always works. Sometimes you need to re-tighten the side screws after extended use -- but that's it.2) They don't slide around as much as FC4 type sustain pedals -- much easier to keep reined in under your feet when performing - whether you stand or site when you play.3) They work better with Ultimate Support APEX-type stands -- because you can fit the sustain pedal in front of the feet on those stands. FC4-type sustain pedals must be angled sideways to be usable with an APEX-type stand unless you want to stand at a strange angle while playing. Angling those pedals will work -- but it further shortens the time you have before that type of sustain pedal wears out. Also, when you stand and play, you don't need to raise your foot as high with these FC-5 type pedals -- much less fatigue.4) They are easier to transport, because they are much smaller and lighter.5) They cost less -- especially when you consider they don't need to be replaced nearly as often.For me, it has been well worth the time to get used to how these pedals work to take advantage of improved reliability and stability. They also work really well as control footswitches (e.g., to trigger a Leslie fast/slow effect on a Nord or similar keyboard). Personally, I will not be buying any more FC4-type pedals. The ones I have that still work will be used at home. 5The Only Pedal You'll Need I love these flat FC5 sustain pedals. They are much more durable the standard pedals. Although I still have an original Yamaha pedal that I purchased back in 2002 and it still works perfectly till this day, I'm a little more partial to this one now. I've been using this pedal for 2 years now and I haven't had ANY problems with it. I bought this one to keep in my laptop gig bag, in case of a faulty pedal when I do gigs out. 5Lacks a Polarity Switch A sustain pedal like this is just a switch that you stomp on. Typically, these include a polarity switch - sustain pedals are not implemented in any consistent way across manufacturers, so it's a given that you'll run into a LOT of situations where your sustain pedal does the opposite of what you expect. In my particular case, this pedal does that with all the keyboards and controllers I'm using it with (Ableton Push 2, Moog Little Phatty) making this totally useless. It never even occurred to me that the ONLY FEATURE available on a sustain pedal would be omitted. this is just weird, and a complete and total waste of your money. 1Holds steady on the floor without slipping around. It works as expected. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because it does the job in sustaining the notes but barely discernible from unsustained play. Don't expect it to work as good as a sustain pedal does on an acoustic piano but my keyboard is not an acoustic piano and the FC5 was not intended to replicate an acoustic piano pedal function.Read your owner's manual carefully before connecting to your keyboard.Overall I am very satisfied with the product. 4Much better than the flimsy plastic pedal that came with my ... Much better than the flimsy plastic pedal that came with my Yamaha Piano. This new one is much heavier and doesn t crawl around the floor when it s being used. The reverse polarity thing is a know problem that has been around forever. Simple solution is to just make sure the power is off when plugging/unplugging the pedal. Bottom line: good quality pedal for the money. It works well and stays out. 5This is an excellent sustain pedal For some crazy reason I had put off buying a sustain pedal for the keyboard I bought a Costco two years ago, because I had the idea they were 80 or $90. When I saw this on Amazon I could not believe it, and ordered it on the spot. It arrived on time, as promised, securely packaged, and performs exactly as I hoped it would. 5Cheap but sturdy... Basic sustain pedal. If using it at home I'm sure it will hold up. As a gigging musician, I go through a couple of these per year, but for the price I see it as the cost of doing business. Sure there are fancier more expensive models out there, but they all eventually break, usually at the point where the cable enters the pedal. They are designed to fail, so why spend more when a supply of these cheapies does the trick? HINT: if you want a long lasting sustain pedal, or any kind of pedal, try to find one that uses a detachable cord. 5
