A Super-stable Sustain Pedal with Half-damper Control

Harness the full expressive potential of your keyboard with the Korg DS-1H sustain pedal. This piano-like metal pedal is very durable and feels incredibly stable under your foot. Korg users can enjoy half-damper control, which varies the lengths of your sustained notes depending on how far down you press the pedal. This allows you to dial back the sustain of your notes if your playing becomes excessively loud or muddy. The Korg DS-1H sustain pedal features a built-in cable, so connecting it to your keyboard is a piece of cake.

Korg - 50 years of innovation

In over half a century of continuous innovation, Korg has introduced and advanced many aspects of electronic music technology and keyboard design. It began in 1963, when Tsutomu Katoh and Tadashi Osanai created their original Doncamatic DA-20 disc rotary electric auto rhythm machine. Korg quickly bloomed into a full-fledged electronic organ company, until they embraced the fledgling synthesizer market emerging in the mid '70s. From key transpose functions and onboard effects to sample and synthesis sound design, the keyboard world owes many industry-standard technologies to Korg. That's why top keyboardists like Jordan Rudess, Herbie Hancock, and Omar Edwards (and quite a few of us here at Sweetwater) rely on Korg to craft their unforgettable sonic signatures.

Korg DS-1H Sustain Pedal Features:

  • Piano-like metal sustain pedal for Korg, Novation, Fatar, and Casio keyboards
  • Durable design feels incredibly stable under your foot
  • Enjoy expressive realism with half-damper pedal control (this feature only works with Korg keyboards)
  • Built-in cable makes connecting to your keyboard easy

I've been using this particular pedal for years. I'm not one to shy away from more pricey items. I've stayed with this pedal for it's sturdiness and feel. As a keyboard player, I'm not crazy about pedals that have somewhat of a 'mushy' or 'clicky' feel. I prefer the solid, smoothness of this unit. As a matter of fact, I'm purchasing a midi controller and buying another one of these pedals for it. If you are not a serious keyboard player, you can get something cheaper if you'd like ... ie/ something to work with your synth or midi controller ... but if you really care about FEEL above simply 'processing sound', then I definitely recommend this pedal.

Great sustain pedal! Worth it!!

You don't really realize the difference in a 'any old' sustain pedal and the Korg DS-1H pedal until you've hooked it up to your Korg Kronos and hear the difference. Yes, HEAR the difference. The Korg DS-1H with the Half-damper control lets you truly hear all the technology Korg puts into their sounds. I noticed with a standard sustain pedal that I was using that their was a 'click' noise, when I let up off the pedal on piano sounds. It kinda sounded like my foot slipped off the pedal on a real piano, which was okay as it was slight. What I didn't realize is that when a half-damper enabled pedal is used, you get the nuance of a real piano sustain pedal lifting up. You hear the strings stop sustaining like a real piano would... not all at the exact same time. A small nuance, yes, but well worth it in realism. Add to that the fact that this pedal is built tough! It's solid, and feels solid! You gotta get it!!

Just The Right Touch... A Must-Have Accessory

This pedal enhances the sound & playability of my Pa600. Have used it most of the day... just arrived in the mail this morning & I wouldn't attempt to perform without one. Very reliable action with a good feel. It makes all the difference in the quality of sound when that extra bit of sustain is needed.

Korg DS1H

It works very well with my Korg Kronos X 73 keys synthesizer.

Great Pedal

Works great with my Korg Kronos. Finally able to hear the subtle differences you can get by "half-pedaling".
