Keyboards are some of the most versatile instruments. The term encompasses such a wide variety of styles and tones it's dizzying. The keyboard is one of a very small group of instruments where the performer may regularly employ their feet in the act of playing, which is why a pedal unit is one of the most flexible accessories for your keyboard. The range of available functions and features is truly incredible and each can send your inspiration soaring to new heights. Whether you are interested in traditional sustain controls, integrating expression effects, or kicking the bass like Jimmy Smith, we carry a full range of keyboard pedal options for you.
For reliable piano emulation, check out our excellent 1, 2 and 3 pedal sustain units. Our universal options come in normally-closed and normally-open configurations. Many of these have an extremely realistic feel to the pedal response. We also have direct replacement units for many popular keyboard models.
Another fun option is a full organ pedal board for playing bass with your feet. We carry the long boards for many of the most famous organ emulators, whether you want to accent a left hand bass line on the tonics, or kick great walking bass lines that make bass players jealous. It's a classic sound and style of playing, and an unparalleled way to set yourself apart. If you have a classic organ emulator, you have to get the pedal board, too.
Our options for expression and effects pedals for keyboards are expansive. A simple volume pedal can be an amazing tool for expression. Controlling smooth swells with your feet and the ability to make minor volume adjustments as you work different octaves are just a couple great techniques that you can achieve with a volume pedal. Even better, many volume pedals are actually multi-effects units. You can get a volume pedal that also functions as a wah as well as an expression pedal.
Our selection of pedals also includes a bunch of great features such as full-sized and long-throw expression controls. If you're into keeping things as portable as possible, we have ultra-compact options in expression pedals as well as switches. Many of our pedals will connect to your keyboard via ¼”, midi, TRS, TS, and RTS inputs.
