Excellent Value for Money

I've deliberately waited several months before reviewing this product. All-too-often reviews are written within days of purchase but as a gigging musician I not only need gear which does what it's designed to, but which is also well-built and reliable. Almost 6 months in, this pedal has performed very well indeed. Yes on the surface there's perhaps not too much to say about a sustain pedal - it only does one thing, after all. It's built well, especially for it's price; the pedal action is quiet and smooth with a pleasing depth of travel and weight to it and there is a very useful polarity switch on the underside. In fact it's very similar to the much more costly Yamaha FC-5 which I also use.

The additional weight of playing whilst stood up takes its toll on sustain pedals, especially piano-style ones. Even the premium-branded ones suffer over time. I'm pleased to say after 6 months use the Fatar VFP1 has been excellent - no glitches; squeaks or rattles. Will it survive as long as a Yamaha FC-5? Time will tell, but at less than half the price, the Fatar has unbeatable bang for your buck.

Excellent little pedal

This pedal is perfect. Does exactly what it's supposed to do and does it well. It's switchable from on when not pressed and off pressed to on when pressed and off when not pressed. On my Keystation it needs to be on all the time for it to work normally.

The metal tongue bit comes with a plastic snap-on cover to protect it, but you can keep this on if you prefer to. The cable is plenty long enough to be routed under my desk, up the other side and finally into my keyboard.

Solid construction with a great action. Feels like it'll take years of stomping. Cheap too - much cheaper than a Roland or Yamaha equivalent.

Bargain!

Good quality for the money. Not too different from the yamaha FC 4. Polarity switch is handy for different keyboards. A nice pedal from Fatar.

Having used this pedal a few times, I have taken a liking to its natural feel. It also resists sliding around on the floor, which I'm sure you keyboard and piano players will find a very nice quality!

Solid reliable pedal, no problems at all.

Very useable budget item

Well, it's a sustain pedal, and it is versatile in that you can switch from "connection closed when pressed" to "connection opened when pressed". So it should work on all keyboards.

The first one i got had a screw missing and made "squeak" when pressed, but that was quickly remedied with a second one. I didn't even have to send in the "imperfect one" first - it pays to be friendly on the telephone, and the Thomann folks are great!
