I am looking for suggestions on a volume pedal for a Yamaha P105 - ie a pedal that I could use to control the volume going to an amp or PA system - my understanding is that the P105 does not have a connection for such a pedal - any advice appreciated.

I just checked the manual -- I don't see anywhere to plug in an "expression" pedal.

You can buy a Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer for around $55 (try Tom Lee or any other large music store. [The Xenyx 502 is a bit cheaper, but doesn't have the very useful "Mid" EQ control.]

Run the keyboard's "Aux Out" (left/right) to one of the line-level inputs of the mixer.

It will give you more controls than you need.

PS -- if you really want a foot pedal for volume control, ask about "stomp boxes". You might find something that will control a stereo, line-level signal.

Thanks - I will look into stomp boxes. What I am hoping for is a foot pedal to control both the volume on my P105 and my Yamaha PSR E423 keyboard when I am playing them at the same time.
