Feels like a real piano pedal.

Hopefully, this will save someone else the frustration of ordering the wrong pedal like I did.

5 stars because looks solid, heavy, and beautiful and is the best Yamaha sustain pedal.
Doesn't work on my PSRe-313. A little research showed that it works with only a few portable grands, most P- models, and a few others. The rest of us need the FC4(similar design) or FC5(cheapest, just on/off sustain) . Look in your owner's manual or go to yamaha.com and find your model, then look under "Assessories" to see what sustain pedals are compatible with your keyboard. Probably not compatible with any non-Yamaha keyboard.

I recently bought a Yamaha keyboard/synthesizer and was debating whether to buy the FC4 or pay double the price of an FC4 and get the FC3. As I have been a pianist all my life, in the end, I thought it would be better for me to have the fine control (half pedaling, etc.) of the sustain pedal as I would on an acoustic piano. I am very pleased with my decision. This pedal feels like the pedal on the grand piano that I am used to working with. I would recommend this for anyone thinking of substituting a keyboard for a piano.

This review is being written out of sheer frustration. I'm a longtime professional piano player, and I belong to several piano player forums. I owned one of these for several months, then I resold it because it wasn't worth the aggravation it caused.

I, and every serious player I know who has had one of these pedals, has had problems with it squeaking annoyingly. Usually it takes a while playing for this to start, which may have to do with the grease lubricant becoming warm over time, and less viscous. Otherwise the pedal operates well and covers the entire midi range from 0-127, unlike the Roland DP series half damper pedals which frequently don't cover the full range, but perhaps somewhere between 16-104 (it varies). So, the Yamaha pedal works properly but frequently produces an extremely distracting squeak that can be quite loud, and the Roland pedal generally doesn't squeak, but doesn't always cover the full midi range, which can leave notes hanging, sustaining when the pedal is not even being used.

In my opinion, both companies make excellent instruments and many other high quality items, but neither company has taken the time and care to fix what are DOCUMENTED PROBLEMS with their half damper pedals. That's a shame, really. I'd happily buy either of these pedals again if these issues were addressed.

This pedal is really worth the price. I can't imagine not having it. I use it with a Yamaha P70 digital keyboard. I grew up playing a normal piano, and was skeptical about how this would work. The control is very precise. It is indespensible for anyone who is used to using a pedal. At first I thought it was a little high of the ground, but I got used to it.

Read this and you will save yourself a lot of potential frustration. This email was written for the FC4 but it probably applies to the FC3 so i'm posting it to save you some potential grief. On my son's Yamaha keyboard I learned that you must have the FC4 footpedal, and probably the FC3 as well, plugged in BEFORE you turn on the keyboard or the sustain is always on and will only go off when you press the keyboard (reverse of normal operation). We had originally purchased an FC3 foot pedal and returned it to amazon for this same problem. I'm sure the FC3 would work the same as the FC4 in this regard so we wasted a lot of time. All that being said, we are going to keep the FC4 as it meets my son's expectations for $25 less than the FC3. My understanding is the FC3 is more like a true piano sustain pedal in that it is variable, whereas the FC4 is on or off, which is all my son really wants.

This foot pedal was squeaking really badly when used. I have taken it apart a couple times and spread grease, but it still squeaks.

I purchased the Yamaha FC3 because my previous sustain pedal broke and would squeak when pressed. It turns out that the pivot point for the pedal was broken. I purchased this Yamaha pedal based on the reviews and was impressed with the quality. After using it for about 3 months this pedal is beginning to squeak. It appears that the pedal mechanism may be rubbing against the pedal housing. I lubed the mechanism with a grease and the squeaking stopped for about a week. Now the pedal is squeaking again. I am starting the warranty process to see how Yamaha will handle this. Stay tuned!

Gives a continuous (well, 127 interval) range of sustain/damper control.

Even if you have a Yamaha, only certain models are compatible. Many keyboard only have a "sustain" pedal input, which is just an on/off switch. They may not know what to do with a continuous pedal.

Looks and feels great. Can also be assigned to other functions depending which keyboard you hook it up to. For example, I have a MOX8 and it can be assigned to control pretty much anything you'd normally control with a knob.
