Product Description

Yamaha offers many different foot pedal/switch/controllers for a variety of functions. About as close as you can get to natural sustain, the FC3 offers continuous sustain performing exactly as an acoustic piano would. Unlike most common pedals, the FC3 has a unique continuous zone that allows for different types of sustain.

Pedal works great with my P-155 Yamaha keyboard .

I have taken it apart a couple times and spread grease, but it still squeaks.

I am starting the warranty process to see how Yamaha will handle this.

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.

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!

Both FC3 and FC4 get lots of stars, and rightly so. Yamaha builds their products well.

Synopsis from reading the reviews and my experience.

FC3
* Performs well at simulating the pedal of an acoustic piano. Including half pedaling with a continuous range of sustain and damper control.
* Check your board's manual for compatibility, as it works only on keyboards that will support the two level sustain function that allows for continuous pedaling.
* From reviewers- Compatible with P75, P105, P155 and some others.
* From Yamaha- The FC3 is only compatible with: S90ES/XS, MOTIFXS/XF, P120,140,155,P250, P60, P70, P85/P95,NP30, All CP series digital pianos.
* All bets are off for use on other keyboard makes.

S. Guzman- "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."

mychiros- " 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) . "

* On either the FC3 or FC4, If polarity gets reversed there is a reboot method to fix it.
Ken Mabuchi- " Just unplug it. Turn off your keyboard. Plug in the FC-4. Then turn on your keyboard."

* Some complaints of squeaks after extended use.

* Pedal travel- the FC3 has a metal bottom with two strips of rubber pad near each end. My new pedal stays put pretty well on wood, tile and carpet. These single pedals take a lot of stress that fixed pedals might not. When it slips to an odd angle, sideway stress is put on the pivot point. I carry around a 25lb.
