DIN-jack for sustainer pedal?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

my (very dear but musical beginner-) friend recently bought a cheap(ish) no-name digital piano online. (I wasn't aware, would have stopped her otherwise)

The thing was delivered and works more or less. She was happy until she tried to connect a sustainer pedal... the "suspedal" jack is a 5-pin DIN... she connected her pedal to the audio output, which kind of didn't work... I have never seen a sustainer pedal with a DIN-connector and suppose there is no such thing on the market. I think they might have "accidentally" added a standard MIDI-trio to the board and basically forgotten about the pedal - has anyone ever seen such a thing?

Thank you
Alex

Yes, there are a few keyboards that have a DIN connector for their pedals. I can't guarantee that this will work, but here's just one example.

It would help to know who made the keyboard in question... isn't there any identifying marks on it, such as a model number or anything like that?

Yes, unfortunately you're right - I'm not finding much on that brand either. I can't guarantee the Casio footswitch would work with it. It might, but it might not... or it might be able to be modified to work with it - it's hard to say either way. :(

Before I actually order that Casio thing... it looks like it has some kind of Mini-DIN plug, while the keyboard has a normal size DIN jack – am I right? I guess she will need some kind of adapter to even try if it works.
