Here is my invention to cure the pedal creep problem encountered with portable keyboards.

[Linked Image]

This is a 7"X21" piece of 1/4" thick masonite with outdoor carpet glued to both sides. The top carpet is cut to allow the formation of the arched strip at the back to feed the cord thru and provide a stop to keep the pedal from migrating off the pad.

The pad is long enough for a size 12 foot to rest the heel on the front part of the pad and hold it in place.

Cool!

I have used a CreepNoMore for quite some time that is basically the same idea except that it rolls up.

Hey Dave, If I had seen that before I went to all the trouble I would have bought one. The roll up feature would make it easier to throw in the gig bag.

Wouldn't it work just as well with some of that shelf liner that doesn't have sticky on it? I use that on the top of my acoustic to set the lamp on, and also tiny pieces under my figurines of Chopin and Schubert, who like to scoot toward the front when I want them to stay back. I also use it along my music desk to keep the music from sliding forward. It's black and has holes in it and would take about 2 seconds to cut.

Here are a couple pics. Would this work? I could try it out myself, if only I could locate the rest of the roll I have sitting around here somewhere. It's $4 or $5 a roll at Wal-Mart.

The first pic is under the lamp, and the second shows it on the music desk too.

People who sew encounter the same problems with their foot pedals. I remember someone recommending a mouse pad for under the foot pedal but , in my experience, that only yielded mild results.

I had the same idea that diinin had above and it helps ,but I'm still not completely satisfied. I told my husband that I'm about ready to go down in the crawl space and put a bolt through the floor and attach it to my foot pedal. He went nuts. ( I was only kidding....)

The Ultimate VS80 V-Stand eliminates pedal creep by the stand's design.

If you're on carpet, some inexpensive Velcro on the bottom of the pedal should take care of the movement.
