Yamaha FC 4 Squeaks!

Unread post by doclands » Wed Aug 23, 2017 8:38 pm

Hi Guys

The Yamaha FC 4 which I use as a sustaining pedal on my Tyros 3 now squeaks incessantly and as I have a day-long music gathering in a couple of week's time I need to sort it if possible - it really is annoying 8O

Any ideas would be much appreciated, even the singer notices it!

Thanks

YIHA!
Thanks parametric, relief at least - I even have a can of WD40 in a cupboard!
Me and the singer had a good laugh - the squeaking sound was identical to ours.
I could say that I miss the squeak now ... but I don't!

Thanks again

My Pleasure Sir!

I also have an FC-4 - but it's not had enough use to squeak yet . . . Now I know how to fix it . . (Y)
