More correctly known as a pedalboard, played by the feet in exactly the same way as the manuals are played by the hands; also have ‘white notes’ (naturals) and ‘black notes’ (sharps).

The stops most usually available on the pedal are at 16′ pitch or 8′ pitch, together with some inter-manual couplers.

Pedals are usually are equipped with second touch on which some non-tonal percussions can be played.
