Iíve used Yamaha FC7ís on my keyboards for 30+ years. They are built really solid and Iíve onky had one fail in all that time. They are reasonably priced as well at about 40.00. KORG has pedals as well and maybe others will chime in about those. But thatís my favorite.

So the FC7 works on a Kronos? I just got a Kronos 2 88 and have been wondering about that - just hadn't gotten around to trying it yet.

I have two FC7s that I use with my Motif - and I LOVE them. Built like tanks and work exactly as you'd want. Best of all, they're very reasonably priced.

Absolutely! And my other keyboard I gig with is a Motif. I actually use 2 FC7ís one on each then I can spilt them and control them individually. I also use FC4ísfor sustain. The only thing you need to do is change the polarity in Global and save Global set up on the drop down menu.

The Korg XVP-20 works well as an expression pedal on the Kronos and is built like the proverbial brick s*ithouse!! It has a separate two channel volume control so both functions can be used simultaneously.

The FC7 will work with the Kronos but will need calibrating.

I use Boss FV500Ls. Built from aluminum; very stable and robust. They have the flexibility of stereo i/o as well as a controller output.

Thanks musicbysterling! That's the pedal I've been looking at the most along with the Korg evp 20... I like the stereo ability
