Indeed.Yamaha FC7 should have been the first one mentioned, honestly.
Just bought an ev-7 today and asked, my dealership said it's not discontinued. Lets hope... fantastic pedal btwYeah, the FC7 is the only one left on the market (that I can find anyway) with a decent range - all the others have a ridiculously short throw, which makes them very hard to control expression with any finesse. Baffles me.
I loved Roland’s EV-7 despite the plastic housing - it felt great, had wide range and was compatible with most keyboards - apparently it was recently discontinued. Grrr.
The Yamaha is killer but I’ve been through more than a dozen of them over the years. Mechanically they are built like tanks, but for some reason they just end up going bad for me over time. Careful taking them apart – that grease gets everywhere and it’s near impossible to get off of anything!
I’ve been extremely happy with my Mission Engineering EP-25 PRO Aero pedals. Switched the polarity for one of the 2 jacks, for compatibility with my Yamaha keyboard. The throw isn’t as long as an FC7, but it’s smooth & accurate, and feels built to last (I’ve lost count of how many FC7’s I’ve purchased & broken over the years).Mission pedals
