    hi , its a simple question , i was just wondering , which model should i look into for my mpk249, i know there are open , closed and universal sustain pedals.

    I think i want a universal one.

    Any suggestions?

    My old pedal worked backwards on my mpk2 and the keyboard surprisingly has no option to reverse it in the firmware/software. So I think universal would be a good idea. I assume universal means that it has a polarity switch?

    Anyway, now i'm using Mpk261 + Nektar NP-2 Universal Sustain Pedal and it works great. It has a polarity switch too, if you need.

    Yamaha FC4A is a great pedal. It doesn't have a polarity switch per se, but you should be able to reverse it by powering the keyboard up with the pedal depressed if necessary.

    Thanks for the suggestions , i think in my case i should look for a pedal with a polarity switch.
    Nektar NP-2 sounds interesting.
    What about M-Audio SP-2 . In my country SP 2 is really popular for some reason.
    And also i noticed that Roland DP - 10 is a good quality pedal also.

    I recently bought a Yamaha FC3A, no regrets. It's not expensive but it's well built.

    I've used the M-Audio SP-2 for several years. It's the only M-Audio product I've ever been happy with.
