    This is the real deal. I bought this for my Yamaha Motif XS6 and it's an amazing pedal. Every other internet website or regular music store that I search around had this same pedal for [$]. I wish there was a plastic cover over the pedal like some other brands so that the silver doesn't get scratched up so easily from regular wear and tear. I also wish it had a polarity switch on the bottom to be able to use it with other branded keyboards like the Korg's.

    Good gear.

    I bought 02 of these (01 for stage, 01 for studio).
    Look good and sturdy.

    Great Pedal

      Best Uses

        Comments about Yamaha FC3 - Dual Zone Piano Style Sustain Pedal:

        tried this pedal on two different systems and experienced different results. First on my Apple operating 10.10.2 with all my DAWS the pedal works when you press down sustain is activated. Then on my system operating Apple 10.4 which is an older model PowerPC and the pedal only worked when I released it. I tried the MIDI settings and nothing worked for me. Some reviews said press pedal down when turning on computer and device but that didn't work for me. Many others are saying to switch the wires. I don't recommend that. Some are saying there is a switch on the pedal, not on this model. The software that comes with the Akai Max49 and Max 25 has an area to change the footswitch settings in the Akai Connect. The software doesn't work on the older PowerPC because the machine is out of date. I'm using it on both machines and adjusting the learning curve as I go. The product is great and I highly recommend it. Also this thing is VERY
        BIG don't be fooled by the little picture. But it's still great.
        Accessories I Recommend::
        Akai Max49
        Akai Max25

              This pedal works fine. It doesn't move. It would be great to be able to replace the cord if, as already happened, it gets pinched underneath the body. Also, needs instructions on the second sustain settings.

                  This is the perfect pedal for my Yamaha keyboard, and provides sustain effects completely comparable to a concert grand. Subtle pressures yield fine effects. Highly recommend!

                        This sustain pedal is solid, stays put, and works more like a real piano pedal than others I've used, even from Yamaha. B&H had the best price, and they are always very responsive.

                                    It's a sustain pedal, does what it's supposed to do.
                                    The continuous sustain feature works as expected (with compatible piano's), and the pedal feels sturdy and heavy, ensuring it doesn't move when being engaged.
                                    The only negative thing I could think of is the fact that the cable is permantly attached to the unit and therefore not easily replaced, but that seems to be standard with sustain pedals.

                                                Works very well with my motif xf8. Great that Yamaha provides this excellent piano feel. B&H had best deal for the pedal.

                                                  FC3 is being used as the right pedal for the P-155. The FC4 which came with the keyboard will be used for the left or middle pedal. Good quality and price.

                                                    Bought to replace the FC5 that was given to me. Much, much nicer to use. Feels like the real thing. No sliding around on the floor during performances.

                                                    It is great. Rather than have the full sustain all the time, I was finally able to get half damper. However, as you know, half damper on a real piano is just a very small interval, beyond that, it sound like a full sustain. This pedal has a relatively long half-damper interval, so it you are a light pedaller in a grand piano, it might take some time before you will get used to how deep you must pedal before you get the full sustain.

                                                          It looks and feels substantial -- just what I ordered -- happy with the price -- but I haven't figured out how to make it work. When I plug it into the piano all I get is constant sustain, no pedal needed. I know it is not the pedal's problem, I just haven't figured out what to do next.

                                                            I replaced the single zone sustain with this one and I am not disappointed. It takes a little getting used to but when you get the feel, it really helps expressive play with subtle nuances, especially with dynamic sections. Great peddle.
