Does it's job
by Joel Powell from Brighton, MIGreat feel and sensitivity. Not your average sustain pedal - much more. I use it with the Yamaha S90xs - no complaints...

Excellent half damper pedal
by Gerald Gabbard from Trinidad, COThe Yamaha FC3 half damper sustain pedal is truly an excellent addition to one's keyboard tools. It is much nicer than a traditional electronic footswitch and it feels and acts like a real grand pian... read more [+]o's pedal. Half pedaling is not just a sales pitch with this pedal--it really works! Combine this pedal with a hammer action keyboard and it should more than satisfy the descriminating player who expects acoustic response from an electronic instrument! close [-]

this is what you want
by Bill Prescott from Salisbury, MAYou're hear for a good reason, you can't control your sustain properly with the less expensive on-off sustain pedals. For compatable yamaha gear this is the one you want.

Yamaha FC3 pedal is the closest to the C3 grand's in feel and action.
by Ric Dudley from FTC, COThe FC3 with the MOX8 and S90 is as close to the C3 grand's as I have found. Not as much variation for the amount of travel but close enough and better than on /off pedals.

It is a tad larger than I would like but better than too small and unstable like some other models. No regrets...still the best unit for the Motif series, in my opinion. close [-]

FC3 Sustain Pedal
by Bart Skrbec from HawaiiYamaha's sustain pedals will last a 1000 gigs or more. I know, my old Yamaha sustain pedal was purchased with my M01 DX7 and saw 1000s of gigs with my Yamaha keyboards through the years. FC3 half damp... read more [+]er pedal performs like an acoustic piano pedal. Some getting used to if you haven't used 1/2 damper on synths but will come quickly. the FC3 has a wide base, impossible to flip over accidentally at gigs. Check out M-Audio MGear pedals too. They're less expensive. I just used MGEAR via our Backline company in Orlando and they worked great. No worries though about paying more for Yamaha. The Yamaha pedal will easily pay for it self. close [-]
