I own three of these pedals. They are in constant use, studio, rehearsal on the road. The oldest one I own, came with a KX 88 back in 1987. It still works fine. (Sold the KX years ago but kept the pedal ;-) ) I have never had any problems with it. Yamaha have not changed the design at all in that time (25 years)! Why should they!! The only thing to watch for is the wiring of the plug. Yamaha have the pot wiper wired to the ring. This won't work on a Roland keyboard - Roland's configuration is wiper on the tip. It's easy to make up a converter and has never stopped me from using them on Roland gear. In fact my rigs are all Roland and Nord now. These pedals work faultlessly with them. Nice one! :-)
I returned this. I thought it was a bit flimsy lightweight and not steady enough for serious usage. Also did not have a input plug for the stereo cable which means you are stuck with the lead that comes out of the unit. There are much better expression pedal is available on the Internet for the money and I would not recommend this unit.
Goes very well with both my Alesis Coda Pro and my Yamah MX61. Very Lightweight and sturdy and very good for outdoor gigs. I would recommend this to touring musicians. Yamaha products are always my first choice.
I bought this to use with my Yamaha PSR EW410 keyboard. It is quite heavy and solid, which gives me confidence that it will will last a long time. I opened the box, plugged it into the sustain input at the back of the keyboard and it worked right away. The sustain that it adds brings an added dimension to my keyboard playing. Good buy!
This is the second foot pedal I’ve bought, my other identical one is over 20 years old (and still working perfectly) and the design hasn’t changed a bit. The quality is there, yes it can be pricey but I found mine for half the price as an import which was great value. If you are serious about music don’t compromise on quality go for this pedal, it won’t let you down.
Does the job. Seems well made. Use for my old Casio keyboard. Lead is a good length, nice size pedal. Does occasionally become 'inverted' as other users have said - ie. sometimes upon turning it on, it becomes: press=lack of sustain, release of pedal=sustain. Easily solved by turning keyborad on and off again. Dirt also gets quite easily stuck in the grooves of the pedal, and quite hard to clean due to the pedal's rubbery texture, but maybe i have a pariculalry dirty floor. Overall pleased, and would recommend for the price. Makes playing the keyboard much more worthwhile.
