by Michael Ramsey from Daphne, ALA bit on the expensive side but well worth it. The DS1H is a quality pedal. It's built well and has a very smooth feel. Very happy with this product. Works very well with my Korg SV-1.

Great Product...A bit pricey...
by Brian Burke Jr. from rochester.rr.comI took 1/2 a star away for price. Other than that, no complaints. Does a GREAT job of half/partial pedaling. I do prefer the M-Audio Pedal however.

by Sam Swope from Sarasota, Fl (USA)The DS1H is a rock solid damper offered by Korg. A little pricey, but the build quality suggests it is well worth it.

High-Quality and a Good Feel!
by Arthur from Syracuse, NYI use Kurzweil (and no Korg) keyboards, but I'm a junkie for Korg's DS1/DS1H pedals. I own six, all of which I bought at least eight years ago. Most decent keyboards will automatically determine if ... read more [+]you have a closed or open loop pedal (or at least offer a manual setting to that effect in the onboard software), so this will work for many more keyboards than advertised, Kurzweil included.

These don't feel like a piano pedal, but they're very solid, take abuse, and will last for years. Only Korg's equipment supports the half-dampening of the DS1H, but it will operate as a normal pedal (like the old DS1) with equipment from other manufacturers. The pedal action has the right threshold (even for equipment that doesn't support half-sustain) and returns the right sense of "weight" back to the user's foot. It feels expensive! I'm always surprised when people buy very fancy keyboard synthesizers and then use chintsy sustain pedals. These are the best I've tried for the money, and I think you'll like them too!
Why not five stars? Well, at this price, I would have preferred that the cable wasn't hard-wired to the pedal. My young cat chewed through the wire, and I wouldn't have noticed the problem until it was too late if I were out on a gig. So buy two! close [-]
