Which Sustain Pedal

Post by HIMA » Sat Aug 13, 2016 3:37 pm

Hi, Prophet 12 on the way! I've read on the board of incompatable pedals but can't find any mention of what the parameters of a compatable pedal are. Anybody know?

Failing that, any tips on which pedals you know work?

I have little specialist knowledge but as there are no replies yet - I use an on/off pedal (Boss I think) with a polarity switch on the back so it works with any equipment. There is an additional advantage - if I change the switch position I get the option of full time sustain with a pedal off function.

I've had the same Yamaha FC4 for twenty five years. If they make 'em like they used to, it's a damn good investment.
