Yamaha FC4 - Piano Style Sustain Foot Pedal

You Pay: $19.18

The Yamaha FC4 sustain pedal has been in production for many years, for several good reasons - it's very well built, it feels like a piano pedal, and it offers a lot of variation in the amount of sustain that's engaged, depending on how fully the pedal is depressed. A captive 6' cable terminates with a 1/4" jack.

        Solid pedal that works well with my Yamaha S90 keyboard. I can't think of anything wrong.

        Bought for my Yamaha MOXF8, works perfect and looks sharp. Needs a non-slip gripper on the bottom.

        Comments about Yamaha FC4 - Piano Style Sustain Foot Pedal:

        I use this in my school music classroom on my Yamaha keyboard. This is much more solid than the little plastic pedal that came with the keyboard. However, it still slides away from me on the carpet while I'm playing. I'll have to put a piece of velcro or something on it to keep it in place.

        excellent pedal replacement for the plastic pedal included with my Yamaha digital keyboard.

        good feel, long cord to plug into the unit, does what it should. No complaints

        Comments about Yamaha FC4 - Piano Style Sustain Foot Pedal:

        This purchase was a replacement for another Yamaha FC4 Piano Style Sustain Foot Pedal that I wore out. The previous pedal lasted nearly ten years and was montrous improvement over the "black box" footswitch Yamaha supplies with its new keyboards and digital pianos. This pedal has an authentic (i.e. Real) pedal feel and sound. I do not believe there is any way to beat this pedal for the price.

                    Comments about Yamaha FC4 - Piano Style Sustain Foot Pedal:

                    when just sitting there plugged in, it has a value of less than 64. But depress the pedal, and BAM!!! a value of greater than 64!. Let the pedal up, and it's right back to less than 64.

                    Seriously, I bought this because I have an old roland that works on my Motif, but the cord is so short that putting the motif on top tier of a 2 tier stand for a *sitting* gig is almost not possible. FC4 cord is longer, and now gets the gig for 2 keyboard gigs.

                        Bought a Yamaha keyboard at a garage sale.Needed the foot pedal. The FC4 unit from B&H was perfect. Awesome sound from the pedal. Great price too. I would recommend this to anyone.

                          I would definitely suggest getting this pedal. It has a real piano feel to it. I wish my keyboard was a little better but at least the pedal is!

                              I went with the bigger FC4 over the FC3 for its solid real and weight the FC3 is light and tends to get away from you when vigorously jamming. Over all a good fit for a musician on the road

                                    Pedal does the basic job of Sustain on or off. Sturdy and stable. Well made. I don't know if it supports "half-pedaling" since that isn't a feature of the keyboard it's being used on.

                                            Just learn to use it but it's great workmanship from what I can tell.

                                                I bought this to replace my Yamaha pedal that I've been using for 4 years now. Works just as described!
