Make sure you are plugging it into the place for the sustain pedal. If you happen to plug it into the audio out it may kill the sound.

    Hey thanks but my keyboard only has the audio channel to plug inot and apparently the pedal is compatible with the keyboard, do you think a splitter would work?

  • Fred Yearian Sep 29, 2010

    You have not mentioned what model keyboard you have, however, if you ONLY have an audio out connector you DO NOT have a sustain pedal input. Hence when you plug in a sustain pedal, the keyboard assumes you are connecting an external amp and kills the onboard speakers as it should !!!
    Many lesser keyboards do NOT have a sustain. If you send your model number I will check to see if it has sustain capability... If you spent less than $100 for the keyboard it probably doesn't have sustain.

Looking for a sustaining pedal for the Casio ctk 401 keyboard. What models will be compatible?


They are all compatible. Make sure the port on the keyboard is the same size as the plug on the pedal, usually a phono plug. Also make sure it is a sustain pedal and not an "on off " switch.

I have a Piano from Casio Named The PX830 BP.I also have a Sustain Pedal Model from Casio named the SP 33.Will connecting the SP 33 into the PX830 BP work?Please tell me if I have the wrong model.


Unfortunately, the SP33 pedal will not work with the PX-830BP. Casio lists that the SP33 will only work with the PX-150BK, PX-150WE, PX-160BK, PX-160GD, PX-350BK, PX-350WE, PX- 360, and PX-560 keyboards.

The PX-830 manual does not list the stand or the pedal unit as separate items if you need to replace them. The pedal unit has 3 pedals like a traditional piano. I wish that I had better news for you.

Ctk-651 sustain pedal working backwards


Buy sustain pedal made for CASIO or switable model.
Pedal for Yamaha or Roland will work in reverse on a Casio.
If you cannot return for exchange, then open up and solder a different type of micro switch.

Hi. I'm Using PX330 as a midi controller that plays "Galaxy pianos" in cubase 5. I'm interested in buying a continuous sustain pedal (the one I got with the piano is an On\Off pedal). can you...


The Yamaha FC-3 uses a TRS (three conductor plug). The PX330 does NOT use TRS jacks for the sustain and sostenuto pedals so they are NOT compatible with the Yamaha FC-3. Therefore I would conclude that continous sustain that the Yamaha pedal would be used for is NOT supported.

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.

The audio is not coming out what to do


First, check your volume. Try turning it up the whole way. If that doesn't work, then try moving the slider switch to normal, and playing.
Also, try using the keyboard in Song Bank mode. If you have a Sustain Pedal, make sure it's in the accessory port and not the Headphone port. If none of this works, then you may have blown a speaker. Parts are cheap from Casio ($13.00) and are relatively easy to put in yourself.

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"
