Hi,

I registered for the Yamaha Montage Early Adopter Foot Pedals special.

I already received my Montage 7, but not the Pedals.

When are these pedals expected to start shipping in the U.S.A. , or have they started shipping already ?

Thanks,
Tarek

Received my set about a week ago, so they're shipping. Shouldn't be long.

It's my first experience with an FC3A pedal although I've had FC4's for decades. I probably have a dozen, one modified with a USB card so it operates the Space bar function to start and stop Cubase or Media Player.

Anyway, I like the FC3A. It's a little stiffer than the FC4A and the pedal drop feels right for half-pedaling the Bosendorfer. Very natural, no complaints.

Did you do the follow-up submission with your Montage serial number, vendor and all that stuff?

I received mine last week also. They arrived exactly 13 days after I went to the main Yamaha Website and completed the rebate form. This was after I received the Montage 7 and registered it.

Funny did mine on 16 May was actually expecting an EMAIL to confirm they validate info or to ask for actual/confirm shipping address

The on-line sign up form at Yamaha (where they ask for copy of receipt, SN, where bought, etc. ) never asks for a CITY or State where you live?

Just a street address and Zip (which MAY NOT be sufficient in some places - like where where the zip code covers TWO cities in TWO counties and they BOTH have similar street numbers)

Well, I checked again, and my Montage 7 shows as a registered product under my Account, with my serial number, and my address shows up correctly under my profile at the Yamaha.com website.

So, hopefully I will get my set of pedals soon.

After I registered the montage nothing happened. I emailed Yamaha and they told me to go to the website and complete the rebate form or nothing arrives.

I received my Montage 7 on May 12th . So three weeks from that date would be any day now.

I think I completed the rebate form, since all my info. shows up with the serial number, (not sure where I can access this rebate form, just in case I need to complete any info.)

I got mine about 2 weeks ago and I registered my Montage the first week in May. There's no notice or anything, it just showed up at the door.

The FC3A was way too stiff for me, so I got some weaker replacement springs, took it apart, and replaced the original spring with my new ones. It's pretty easy to do, you just have to watch out for the grease that Yamaha liberally applied inside the pedal mechanism. You also have to be careful to not let springs come flying out while you're doing the replacement. Eye protection would be a really good idea…

Out of curiosity where did you get different tension replacement springs or did you DIY from a personal parts scrounge box?

Thanks

Hi,

I just received my Montage Pedals today !

Actually, the reason I got them late is that my initial registration process was not completed. I needed to complete the procedure by sending more info. (i.e. copy of my invoice). which was done in another area of the Yamaha website.

Anyways.. I'm happy I finally received it.

Cheers,
Tarek
