Pedal problems - keyboard/piano players
In a wee change from all the recent flutey posts, any ideas how to SAFELY cure a squeaking piano/keyboard pedal, specifically an M-Audio SP-2? My first one lasted 3 years before developing an annoying squeak every time I depressed it. Squirted in a bit of WD-40: cured the squeak but killed the pedal (maybe pure coincidence, destined to die then anyway?): no sustain thereafter!
Bought a new one, same model, as that previous one had served me not TOO badly (£5 per year?) but now the new one is squeaking after only 3 months of use!! Probably not noticeable when playing with the band and we’re all miked up/ connected to PA, but damned annoying when you’re trying to play solo, un-amplified! Very obtrusive!
(My piano is a Casio Privia: the pedal that came with it was rubbish!)
