Customer Reviews:

  • It works. What more could you want from a simple pedal?
    I've used this on two different casio-brand keyboards. It works like it's supposed to. It sustains notes when your foot presses down. It lets the notes go when you lift your feet.

    I've had mine for a year and a half with no problem. It's not something that will break easily. It's pretty durable and reliable.

    There is a button on the bottom that changes the way the pedal sustains. In one setting, it works just like a real piano pedal. In the other setting, it works in reverse. In other words, it will sustain every note you play if the pedal is NOT pressed. Then when you press the pedal down, it stops sustaining. I believe the purpose of this is to account for different electrical wiring in pianos. If you find that your pedal is sustaining when it isn't supposed to, check the switch on the bottom....more info
  • Excellent piece of equipment
    Bought this pedal for my daughter's Casio keyboard. Worked fine right out of the box. She really likes the heavy weight of the pedal, it keeps it in place on the floor without any slipping around. An excellent product at a very nice price....more info
  • Sustain Pedal for Casio CTK-700
    I am extremely happy with this pedal and it makes all the difference in the sounds of the Casio Keyboard that I have. I would definitely recommend investing in this more solid and stable pedal; it is extremely comfortable to use....more info
  • Feels high quality, but is it?
    I received this pedal brand new as part of a package deal with an Alesis Photon X25 midi controller. I thought it was an amazing deal to get a pedal like this that felt so sturdy. Unfortunately, within 6 months, the pedal started giving me problems, triggering sporadically and unpredictably. With no noticeable flaws, I opened it up to see what was wrong and discovered the issue. The casing of the pedal had been improperly clamped down onto the wire, splitting the protective plastic coating. I tried unsuccessfully to repair the wire and eventually just gave up on. I know anyone with decent soldering skills could have saved this pedal, but I saved myself the time and effort and bought a cheap $5 "sewing machine" pedal from Radio Shack that has worked perfectly for the last few years....more info
  • Wow!
    Amazing feel, and great sound. Very happy. Careful though, the bottom switch can be either normal pedal, or another setting that holds only the chords you play....more info
  • Good feelin' pedal
    I needed a new pedal for my Yamaha electronic piano. This on feels and acts so much more real than the one tha came with the piano. Very happy with it....more info
  • Works for Yamaha DGX205
    I almost didn't buy this because of a previous review, stating that it didn't work with Yamaha keyboards. It works just fine with my DGX205. (Similar to a PSR293)You need to make sure you plug it in before turning the keyboard on, otherwise it has the opposite effect. I give it a 4 because it's not as perfect as a real piano pedal, but very close. And, at 19.99 it's almost half the price of Yamaha's comparable pedal. Definitely 100% better than those cheap button ones!...more info
  • Shoody quality - get a Roland or Yamaha pedal
    Hate to have to do this because I generally like M Audio's stuff (BX5a monitors are awesome!), and hate writing bad reviews, but this pedal is not worth the money. The pedal itself slides back and forth in its casing, and when mine slides to the left, it cuts my sustain off. Poor construction. Huge disappointment. Never had a problem with a piece of gear in 18 years until now. PLEASE don't put gear out unless it can withstand the rigors of performance! Again, I like M Audio just fine and am sorry to bag on them, but this product is a huge disappointment. ...more info
  • Great Pedal!
    Do not hesitate to buy this pedal. It not only works great with our less than professional Casio keyboard (making it usable to play in public), but also works as a sustain pedal for my son's effects pedal for bass guitar. There is a switch on the bottom of the pedal that allows it to work with various keyboards. This is what allows it to work with the effects pedal as well.

    It is a nice weight and has a nice feel to it when played. The rubber on the bottom keeps it from slipping on most floors. - If it does slip, check to see if there is a fine coating of dirt on the bottom. Once cleaned up it stay in place nicely again....more info
  • Best thing since sliced bread!
    Honestly now. I have the Casio Privia piano, which can use 2 pedals. I bought 2 of these pedals to try and they work great. The one major complaint I've always had with non traditional pianos is the cheap tiny pedals every company gives you. Plus they give you only 1 at that.
    Say goodbye to those tiny boxes, pretending to be pedals, slipping and sliding out from under your feet. These are real full size piano pedals and are heavy enough to stay put even without the non slide bottoms. I've had mine 3 months now and have not had to climb under my piano once looking for and sorting out which pedal is which...they simply stay put!

  • Much better!
    This pedal is much more real feeling than the pedal that came with my Yamaha keyboard. It makes playing the keyboard feel and sound more real....more info
  • Great pedal once you figure out that you need to move the switch on the bottom of the pedal!
    I am using this sustain pedal with a Yamaha motif XS8 and it works great. I must admit that I am an idiot and could not figure out why pushing down the pedal would cause exactly the opposite response I wanted. Pushing the pedal was actually causing the sound to abruptly end so I did a quick Google search on the topic and it looks like others have had the same difficulties past I had at first. So I didn't feel as stupid as I did previously. There is a switch on the bottom of the pedal that you have to flip to the other side so that you will get the desired sustained sound when pressing on the pedal. Other than that, I have absolutely nothing but high praise for this pedal as it feels durable and has a solid feel to it unlike some others that can be pushed around at any whim. For about $30, the pedal does exactly what it claims to do and it doesn't well. It works seamlessly with the Yamaha motif XS8. What else can I say?...more info
  • works with Yamaha P60, but not perfect
    This pedal works with my Yamaha P60. It looks great, and the feel and sound are very natural. The only problem I've noticed is that the SP-2 always adds just a little bit of sustain to every note, even when the pedal isn't pressed down. It's kind of a bummer, but it does make the P60 sound a little more 'real'. I don't know if the Yamaha FC4 has this effect or not.

    For the guy who was having problems with the P60, try this: turn the P60 off, unplug the SP-2, then plug it back in. Hold the pedal all the way down while you turn the keyboard on. Then release the pedal. It should work after that, though you may have to flip the polarity switch on the bottom as well....more info
  • defect
    I am on my second M-audio sustain pedal, as the first one failed due to wiring defects. It works decently, however the pedal slides when i'm playing and I find this to be very annoying. No matter the surface i have under it, whether it is a rug or hardwood flooring, the pedal will just slide back until i can no longer reach it. I think the problem may have something to due with the weight distribution since the bottom surface it rubber but i'm not exactly sure. I would not recommend this product due to this problem. ...more info
  • Good product
    I purchased this to use with my Casio keyboard. I'm a beginner student, and this is working very well for me. The no skid base is an excellent addition. ...more info
  • Works with my Yamaha Keyboard
    I am using this pedal with a Yamaha YPT-200 keyboard and it is compatible. It worked from the start and responds as I expect it to. It has the feel of a real piano pedal. (I'm not an expert, but I have played on acoustic pianos in the past.)

    I like the weight and the rubber bottom, because they allow the pedal to stay put. No problems for me....more info
  • SOLID PRODUCT! -- QUALITY AND LOW PRICE?... YES!!!
    Love this pedal!... LOVE IT!... Ordered on April 29, 2009 with free super-saver shipping... Had it in my hands on May 4, 2009 (and the transit time included 2 weekend days!...). FINE JOB, AMAZON! M-Audio SP-2 US65010 Sustain Pedal Piano Style Sustain Pedal for Keyboards LET'S SEE, WHERE TO BEGIN?... I looked at several brands of pedals at local music stores but, none of them had the classic rounded pedal shape (like on a grand piano) that the SP-2 has. Most had squared-off pedals... I prefer the round pedal. The black plastic part of the unit has a simple, clean, elegant shape (I have a design background, so this is important to me...) with precise fitting parts. The rubber bottom plate is held in place by five phillips-head screws (count em'--FIVE!... Two, maybe three would be sufficient, I think...). The over-all impression I get is that this is a solid product. The pedal "maxed out" my 16 ounce postal scale, so I put it on my bathroom scale and it looks like it weighs about 1-1/2 pounds. Lift a 28 ounce can of vegetarian baked beans to get an approximation... It takes a fair amount of effort to depress the pedal, just like on a "real" piano so they got the "feel" just right, in my opinion. The pedal does not squeek and has no side-to-side play whatsoever. It is really a solid, solid product. Another reviewer gave a lower rating because they wrote that the pedal slips on the floor... I strongly refute this claim! Why?... I believe that if that individual would take a moment to wipe off the floor and the bottom of the pedal with a wrung-out soapy rag and let things dry, the problem would be solved. My floor was dusty (oh, the forced-air heat that blows dust into the air...) and transferred dust to the brand-new-out-of-the-box pedal bottom and it slipped a bit... But, once cleaned off, it stayed solidly put. Remember when, as a kid, you got brand-new sneakers and wore them for the first time on the freshly waxed gym floor at your school and tried to skid them along and they made that loud squeeking sound as they skidded to a halt?... It's like that!... NOW, there is something that I want to point out to potential buyers-- AMAZON left two (2) very important features off of the product description... FIRST, the SP-2 does (YES, PEOPLE, IT DOES!...) have a POLARITY SWITCH on the bottom sole plate. This makes the pedal compatible with ANY type, ANY brand of electronic keyboard with a 1/4" pedal jack (on my Korg M-1, the pedal is called the "damper"). Don't you dare let ANY manufacturer FOOL YOU and try to tell you that you must buy THEIR brand of pedal. They just want your money to go to THEM!... Enough said on this matter... SECOND, the SP-2 also comes with a PLASTIC COVER (it's kind of an opaque white color, sort of like old-school tupperware, if you can imagine what that looks like...) for the chrome plated part of the unit. I know, we want our pedal to gleam forever and never get scratched, but it still looks great even with the cover in place. For that recital, maybe just play in your socks and show off that shiny chrome plating!... I realize that I am writing a lengthy review and you may be thinking to yourself, "gee, this guy has too much time on his hands", BUT, I am actually VERY busy, but just felt compelled to give this excellent product a great review that it DESERVES... NOW, I will end by writing, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, and "BUY IT!!!"......more info
