I really need a sustain pedal for my keyboard. Without a sustain pedal, songs that are otherwise flowing and graceful sound dinky and chopsticks-y. Point in fact, Ingrid Michaelson's "Breakable." Gorgeous, gorgeous song but on my keyboard it's like I'm just plonking on the keys without any real fluidity.

On that note (haa pun intended) a mute pedal would be handy too. Damien Rice's "9 Crimes" has a heartbreaking piano intro where almost every other note is muted. It makes that intro so subtle and quiet and tender.

To Guitar Center I go!
