            This pedal is working nicely now, but be warned, if your keyboard or whatever you are using doesn't work in a reverse polarity mode, it may work opposite, where it sustains when the pedal is not pressed down, and when it is pressed down, it will stop. Inside the pedal I noticed that the two ends are always touching, and they are separated when the pedal is pressed. I had to switch these ends around so that the ends would touch when the pedal was pressed down. I have a Casio WK-3000 and I'm guessing many other models will have this same problem.

            It's an ok basic pedal, but not all you'd hope for. I have two of these that I'm not using right now, but still have to go out and buy another pedal because I need one that has the opposite polarity. Some keyboards don't sense the polarity of the pedal, and expect you to use a pedal with specific polarity. So really, would it be so hard to give this pedal a polarity switch like you find on other pedals? Seriously annoying Yamaha.

                Comments about Yamaha FC5 Sustain Footswitch:

                First thing I noticed about this pedal is that the build quality was very solid and it was actually heavy for such a small pedal. Seems like it will hold up to some beating and stomping, the only thing I didn't like was the lack of a polarity switch but I believe you just hold down the pedal while you plug the cable in to invert polarity.

                        Comments about Yamaha FC5 Sustain Footswitch:

                        This is the exact footswitch I needed for the application.a solid "punch in -punch out" operation, with the AW 16G..it functions smootly and quietly...5 stars all the way.
                        I've tried other non-latching foot switches, but Yamaha beats them all. For build, and reliability, should've bought this one first. I use it as a "punch in -out" switch on a Yamaha AW 16-G..works great. Highly recommend.

                        Fc 4 & Fc 5, these are momentary switches.... there is no polarity at issue here. period. read the owners manual. try to buy a casio if that is what you have! the reversal is in the keyboard itself. Where the on/off switch is!!! Yamaha.... is synonymous with quality. All the pedals are cheap, If I were to break one, (I haven't) I'd go buy another.

                        Overall, this pedal works very good. This is actually the pedal that came with my keyboard, and so far it holds up pretty good. The only problem I have with it is that it slides a lot, which is bad when your performing and need to use the pedal. Other than that it is a well working cheap pedal that gets the job done.

                        Reverse polarity requires soldering

                        Comments about Yamaha FC5 Sustain Footswitch:

                        Do not buy this for a Casio or any other standard keyboard that wants a closed circuit for sustain. Contrary to the suggestions to hold it down while powering it on, Casio doesn't observe that convention for reversing polarity. To modify this pedal, you will need to physical modify the pedal circuit.
