DP-8, DP-2 pedals

These might be more useful than you think! The DP-8 is a great quality pedal that is a LOT nicer to use as a damper pedal with your keyboard than the cheaper style pedals. The "half-pedaling" feature is nice, and can really add to the expressiveness of your music when used correctly, and with a sound setup to use it.

The DP-2 is great for use with punching in with some of the recording gear, or for use as a switch for additional controls - you can use it to turn your leslie effect on and off, for example.



The Roland DP-8 Damper Pedal is the perfect choice for keyboard players who want the most realistic pedal action, thanks to new half-pedal support. When used with compatible instruments, this function allows the sustain length to be varied depending on how deep the pedal is pressed. The versatile DP-8 can also be used a simple pedal switch.

  • High-quality damper pedal with expressive half-pedal capabilities

  • Allows players to vary the sustain depending on position of pedal

  • Can also be used as a 2-position pedal switch (On, Off)

  • Half-pedal function compatible with Roland RD-600/700, FP-9/3, F-90, KF-90, XV-88 and Fantom-Series workstations

Momentary footswitch for "non-latch" footswitch operations such as sustaining notes on electronic keyboards. The DP-2 can also be used for things like punch in/out on Roland/BOSS recording gear.
