Hi,

At the moment I have the standart pedal that came with FP7F. I tried to buy RPU-3 but doesn't seem that it's available anywhere that ships to my location (except Thomann, where it's overpriced + delivery costs).

Are there other alternatives to RPU-3 that work well with FP7F? I could also work with 2 pedals not 3, it's better than 1 I got right now.

Thanks ! ! !

For one, the price of the RPU-3 went up substantially last year in the US. Old price reports are not current. It has been backordered a few times. Since there is no alternative product I know of, it would be hard to evaluate what someone believes is a competitive price.

However, one great thing about the FP-7F is it uses 3 individual pedal ports, not a proprietary plug. The alternative is to buy 1 or 2 additional pedals as necessary. At that point, the only challenge is keeping individual pedals steady on the floor. If you are industrious, you can build some type of housing. Of course, you will quickly approach the effort and cost of RPU-3.

so basically if I get another "Roland DP-10 piano style Sustain Pedal" , I can use it for what I need and there's no difference in "quality" from RPU-3?

Perhaps that's even better, because while 3 pedals would be nice, 2 is better than 1 (even some acoustics only have 2).

That's correct. RPU-3 is essentially 3 integrated DP-8 pedals. They are interchangeable in the pedal ports, so you are free to coordinate your own solution...like a second DP-10.
