I just ordered a few pedals for my rig and was surprised at how well constructed this M-Audio SP-1 is. I bought a Korg PS-1 for twice the price in the same order and find them to be equals.

This M-Audio SP-1 features a full (cast or sheet?) metal body and a clearly defined polarity switch. I added it to the order expecting a basic plastic switch but it feels very sturdy. Comparatively, the Korg is slightly smaller and lighter (plastic base, but just as sturdy). However the cord on the Korg feels better - rubber cased whereas the M-Audio feels like plastic. If the cords were the same I would tend to say the M-Audio was better at either price.

If I was ordering again today I'd get two M-Audio PS-1's but they are so close to the Korg that it's not worth the $15 for the hassle of exchanging (and I like the yellow color of the Korg to tell the two apart during a gig).

I'll give 5 stars for now, out of the box, but will update if needed, after taking them both on the road.

One note: the "M-Audio" label on mine is black, embossed in the rubber face, not white as in the picture. Doesn't really matter to me but thought I'd point out the difference.

      Acceptable

      By TheIbanezGuy

      from Toronto

      See all my reviews

      Comments about M-Audio SP-1 Sustain Pedal:

      The M-audio SP-1, like other M-audio products has not let me down. It came out of the box without a scratch, and worked as soon as I plugged it in. I gave it a 4/5 for features because it only does 1 job, but does it well. I gave it a 4 for quality because It is a small but sturdy contraption, made of metal, painted a matte black, and because it has a rubber pad on its bottom and top that keep it from sliding on the ground, and give it a strong grip on your shoe/foot.As far as value goes, this product is well worth the $$ I paid for it. It may not look like a traditional sustain pedal, but does the job while being a compact square shape - easy for transportation.I definitely recommend the sp-1 if you are pressed for money, or if you want a compact sustain pedal that is reliable.

      Fantastic Pedal

      Comments about M-Audio SP-1 Sustain Pedal:

      I've had it for two years, went on three consecutive tours, jumped my entire body weight on it at every show. Still hasn't given me a problem. For $15 dollars, incredible value.

      Really dope pedal

      Comments about M-Audio SP-1 Sustain Pedal:

      This is a great pedal; does the job as it's supposed to and is relatively cheap.
      Built like a tank yet very small and portable. Sufficient foot space to work the pedal. Also comes with a polarity switch.
      Rubber foot pad is really dope. Being really low to the ground, it's impossible to knock over.
      Amazing for what it's worth.

      Well made and the short throw on this pedal is a great thing

      Comments about SP-1 Sustain Pedal:

      This pedal is very rugged and well-made, and doesn't slide at all because of its weight and the rubber non-skid base. I've used the sustain pedals that look like an acoustic piano damper pedal and I'd have to say that I prefer this one for electronic keyboards because of the reason one reviewer didn't like it. It has a short throw and is easy to press. Most electronic keyboards (even high end ones) basically have a sustain function that is either off or on, unlike an acoustic piano damper, so this pedal is perfect for electronic keyboards. My foot is less tired because to activate sustain, this pedal only needs to be pressed about a half inch, compared to piano damper style pedals that require about a inch and a half throw to activate.

        Comments about M-Audio SP-1 Sustain Pedal:

        These pedals are great! I bought two, one for my Roland to be used as a sustain pedal and one for my Hammond XK1 to be used as a leslie speed control. These are heavy, don't feel cheap at all and have better than expected traction. The polarity switch is a "must" for me because, although my Roland can be programmed for different polarity, the switch on the pedals make it much faster and easier.
