Thre is a sustain pedal jack next to the foot switch jack. The pedals used are different. The foot switch is a latching switch, the sustain pedal is a momentary.

Hammond Organ T-262. Leslie fast motor switch (Tremulant) not working. Wiring diagram anyone? Thanks


It may not be the switch, but rather that the motors need adjusting. If the slow motor is too tight against the rubber wheel on the fast motor, it may not disengage the slow motor when switched, thereby dragging down the fast motor.

You should try having the pedal connected when you turn unit on. Some pedals can be rewired to act opposite... However I believe this pedal should work with the Casio. You can open the pedal and see if you can move one wire so it works opposite. Also verify that the jack is set to the "SUS" setting per your user manual... around page E14

every sustain pedal got different polarity.. normally just go to global setting on your keyboard and change damper polarity setting to plus or minus (select which one work with your sustain padle).

1.Make sure you are plugged in to DAMPER (not FC1 or FC2) 2. Check to see if the notes STOP sustaining when you PRESS the pedal. If that is the case, first try turning off the Roland with the pedal plugged in and restarting with the pedal pressed down. 3. Press the EDIT button and scroll to Damper Polarity. See if it's set to Standard or Reverse. 4. If problem persists after all that, try holding the pedal jack into the Roland at different angles and then try the same with where the cable connects to the pedal. At that point, you can either attempt to repair the pedal or get another one.
Hope this helps, Stewart

The answer is NO... Roland uses the opposite sense switches on foot pedals... They use NIRMALLY CLOSED and your Yamaha is a NORMALLY OPEN switch.

SOMETIMES you can open these pedals and find that the pedal has the opposite sense switch available and you only have to unsolder and move one wire to make it a NORMALLY CLOSED pedal.

Is a sustain foot pedal similar to a tattoo machine pedal?


The sustain pedals have only two wires. Usually they terminate in a 1/4 inch mono plug.

yamaha USUALLY sustains when switch is closed. Roland usually sustains on a switch between the wires when the switch is open.

NO POWER should be supplied BY the sustain pedal... it is ONLY a switch.

How to set up foot switch in order


Personally I recommend the following set up:

Distortion>Effects>Compression/Noisegates/Sustain

This will ensure that the signal won't have any odd hiccups due to an odd pedal setup. But if you play around with different orders, you can end up with some very interested sounds.

Bought a sustain foot pedal and it works the opposite to what it is supposed to...have to release the pedal for the sustain effect


Yep!!! Happens all the time and only a few synths have the option of selecting the operating mode.

NOW if you can open the pedal, USUALLY the switch has both the Normally Open and Normally Closed functions that a single wire can be moved to reverse the operation.

USUALLY you will need a soldering iron to make the change.

Roland DP-2 pedal not functioning correctly.


There are two types of damper pedal switches, on that is closed until you press it, and one that closes when your press it. It sounds like your Casio is expecting one type and your Roland pedal is the other type. A quick way to test this is to plug a guitar cable into the Casio pedal input and see if the keyboard sustains. If it does, then your Casio requires an "normally closed" switch.

Some pedals have a small switch near the cord or even on the bottom of the pedal that will reverse the switching operation (BOSS pedals, a division of Roland, have this feature). If you can find that, then change the switch position and you should be OK.

If not, and you feel like digging into your pedal, you could take the bottom off of the pedal and check out the switch itself. Many pedals use a switch that can be used either way. The clue will be on the switch itself. If there is an extra tab on the switch that is unused, then switch the wire that is furthest away from that tab to that tab. This will probably involve soldering, but it is nearly impossible to damage anything.
If moving the wire that is furthest away does not do anything, then try putting that wire back and switching the other one.

If your pedal does NOT have an extra tab, you're SOL, unless you want to buy a replacement switch (unsure of make). If this is the case, you are probably better off getting a different damper pedal - preferably one that is marketed as "universal"
