        This pedal is well built and has 30 degrees of travel which is great for organ. Please note that the people who have been complaining about the pedal going crazy for only a few degrees, and then nothing for the rest of the way are just using an incompatible keyboard. The wiring for volume pedals between keyboard manufacturers is not standardized. You can modify the pedal to be compatible if you know how to use a soldering iron, or you can buy an adapter. I had to do this so it would work with my Nord Electro.

              Basic volume pedal, but greatly helpful in the studio, especially when recording orchestral sounds, organ, etc from the keyboard. It allows for real-time dynamics which has already saved me tons of time. I also use this live, regularly. Highly recommend for every keyboardist!

              Comments about Yamaha FC7 Volume Pedal:

              I use an FC7 on each of my two Mellotrons. They are pretty much the standard replacement expression pedal for most Mellotronists; much better than the originals. Action is smooth and volume increase/decrease is very even. For the price, it can't be beat.

                Best I've found. Owned on for 15 years with no trouble. I just discovered they are still manufactured, I'm ordering another one for my rehearsal set up.

                Pedal is o.k.- the pot been substituted

                By Anonymous

                from Undisclosed

                Comments about Yamaha FC7 Volume Pedal:

                If pedal works not the way you expect and volume jumps it is a compatibility issue between the pedal's potentiometer(A or B taper/law) and the keyboard circuitry. There are A(logarithmic)and B(linear)taper potentiometers. Letters A or B marked on pots, i.e 50kA or 50kB. If volume jumps replace the pot with the other letter on it.If you have a B-taper pot you can keep it and simulate the A-taper pot by soldering a simple resistor to the pot. Electrician can help you calculate the resistor value. If you have A replace it with B. If you have B replace with A.Or simply buy compatible keyboard for your pedal.

                a great pedal

                from Republic of Panama (originally NJ)

                Comments about Yamaha FC7 Volume Pedal:

                This is a good solid pedal that works great with my Yamaha Motif. It is smooth and dependable, and is built to last. I have to admit, I didn't even know about the "fortissimo function" until I downloaded the manual and discovered this feature. Embarrassing since I am usually a 'read the manual' type of guy.

                Comments about Yamaha FC7 Volume Pedal:

                This pedal is well built and has 30 degrees of travel which is great for organ. Please note that the people who have been complaining about the pedal going crazy for only a few degrees, and then nothing for the rest of the way are just using an incompatible keyboard. The wiring for volume pedals between keyboard manufacturers is not standardized. You can modify the pedal to be compatible if you know how to use a soldering iron, or you can buy an adapter. I had to do this so it would work with my Nord Electro.

                Yamaha FC7 Pedal INFO

                Comments about Yamaha FC7 Volume Pedal:

                I am not surprised to read the comments of others stating that this pedal has VERY little travel before going ballistic. This pedal has a 50K OHM potentiometer in it. Many pedals have a 10K OHM potentiometer, (like the Kurzweil model CC1). I own this pedal and it behaves normally on my Korg, but it behaves badly, just as others have stated, on my Kurzweil. It's a very good pedal, but you have to use it on a keyboard that uses a 50K OHM pedal. GASP! Read the owner's manual! Oh No!
