Three High-quality Piano Pedals in One!

Roland's PRU-3 piano pedal combines three high-quality piano pedals into one easy-to-manage and attractive unit. Three discrete outputs let you plug the RPU-3 into any control that uses a 1/4" input, allowing you to use it with digital pianos and keyboards made by many manufacturers. When used with Roland's FP-7F series, RD-700 series, or any other Roland piano with half-damper capability, the RPU-3 gives you incredibly fine control over your playing style and expression. The RPU-3 can also provide completely hands-free control over many other instrument functions, including the FP-7F's onboard looper and harmony effects.

Roland RPU-3 3-pedal Piano Pedal Features at a Glance:
  • 3 pedals combined into one convenient and clutter-free unit
  • Separate 1/4" outputs for each of the three pedals
  • Negative (-) polarity for use with normally-closed pianos and keyboards
  • Half damper functionality when used with Roland keyboards
Get three easy-to-manage piano pedals in one, with a Roland PRU-3 3-pedal controller!

Solid

This pedal is very solid to the feel. It's weight makes it stay put, even on my slippery hardwood floor. Depressing the pedal takes more effort than most dampers, much like an actual piano. These 3 pedals are all half dampering, meaning they are also all stereo jacks. Most non damper pedals are mono which either turns on sustain when pressed or off when released. Half dampering pedals allows you to do less sustain on partially depressed or full sustain on fully depressed. This is why the stereo jacks and why this pedal will most likely not work on older keyboards. In fact even though I have a stereo jacked, half damper pedal working on my aging Triton Pro, I must pull it partially out to get it to work. This pedal will not work at all on my Triton even if i change my boards polarity. I got it for my next 88 key keyboard, the Roland RD800. Finding an accurate list of boards this will work for is not even possible on Roland's own website since they haven't updated the information in some time. It does work as a piano triple pedal on the RD800 but they don't say this on their site. They also never reply to my emails in trying to tell them this, thus the -1 star. All in all it's a great pedal and can be used for more than as a piano triple pedal. For the price it's a great buy but personally I wouldn't get it if your board doesn't support half damper and if it doesn't have the required polarity be sure you can change your polarity in your boards settings.

Roland RPU-3

I mean, come on its a piano peddle set. But the reason its great is that its heavy so it doesn't move as you play and the resistance is such that you can manipulate your sound the same as an acoustic grand piano.I should have gotten it earlier.

Does not work with Yamaha Keyboards (CP300) as advertised.

Just plugged this into my Yamaha CP300 for the first time and it does not work. It sustains which means the polarity is wrong. The ad online shows that it works with Yamaha Keyboards, so beware! I purchased this but my keyboard was being stored for a while. Now that I am past the 30 days, I am stuck with it.
