      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.

      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:

                        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.
