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:

    I've had this same footswitch for many years and never had a problem with it, so I ordered an other one to replace a less sturdy one that I have. This one has weight to it, and is of a much sturdier construction.

                  I use this with an Alesis SR16. I am the lone musician for contemporary Christian music in a small church. This allows me to control the drum machine to add depth to my guitar

                      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.
