M-Audio SP-2 | Universal Sustain Pedal with Piano Style Action for Electronic Keyboards

I don't know why but I decided I needed to review this pedal after using it for a little over a year. I have been playing piano/keys for over 20 years - mostly in church - and whenever I do a gig, I travel with a sustain pedal just in case. I've learned the hard way why a pedal is so important. Even when I was in India for 10 months, I had to have my own sustain pedal just in case. The little dinky ones that usually come with keyboards are a joke and don't work consistently.

I always tend to spring for the universal sustain pedals that have the polarity switch on the bottom so they can be used with all keyboards. I personally use my pedal with my Casio Privia PX-300 but at church, I use the pedal with the Yamaha MO-8. I've also used the pedal with a Korg and Alesis (forget which models).

I'm a huge fan of the classic-style sustain pedal since I learned on an upright piano. The slip-resistant rubber bottom doesn't work well on carpet (in my opinion) - I tend to play more standing up and I constantly have to readjust the pedal mid-performance but I'm sure it would stay in place better when not on carpet.

The pedal definitely works like an acoustic piano's sustain pedal since it has half-pedal expressive capabilities, which can be extremely useful.

The 6-foot cable has a 1/4-inch jack to plug into your keyboard.

I tend to leave the plastic covering on the pedal to protect it and everything works fine.

I highly recommend this pedal.
