Donner Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal Review

If you have been using your tablet or computer with sheet music apps like NextPage, SongBook, and many others, The Donner Bluetooth Page Turner Pedals is something you will enjoy using.

What is a Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal?

The Donner wireless Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal is a very useful tool for turning pages, reading music, scrolling lyrics, guitar tabs, teleprompting and more. It works with your iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, or Android tablets.

I’ve used this pedal with the iOS apps piaScore and Teleprompt at gigs and rehearsal. I also use it with my web browser, pdf readers, Logic Pro, and other apps on my computer.

Is It Durable?

Despite being made of plastic, it’s sturdy and effective. The pedals are quiet, so they don’t distract when pressing them and it has rubber on the bottom so it won’t slide around. At about 7 inches by 5 1/2 inches, it’s very portable and will fit in any gig bag.

Settings:

There are a few setting options to use depending on what app or device you are connecting to. On my Mac Setting 5 (Space/ Enter) comes in handy to stop/start recording in Logic Pro. Other settings include:

1. Page up/page down
2. Left arrow/ right
3. Up / down
4. left / right mouse click
5. Space/ Enter

settings

What Apps Will It Work With?

I used the Donner Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal with NextPage and SongBookother iOS apps, but it will work with any app that you can use foot pedals with including:

  • NextPage
    Teleprompt+3
    SongBook
    unrealBook

    This looks pretty handy and useful for my sister who plays piano. I will let her know about this!

    Thanks for this review but I still don’t quite get how it works. Is it when you put it on the ground and you step on it, it can turn the pages of the lyrics?

    One more question, does it use batteries or it needs a socket?

    • Greg

      Thanks for the comment Jerry,

      The Donner Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal is a wireless foot controller for your Mac, PC iOS & Android device. It connects to your device through Bluetooth so you can flip through or scroll up and down pages of whatever app you’re using without using your hands.

      It’s great for musicians and even a slideshow presentation. It comes with a USB cable and a rechargeable battery, it’s completely wireless, you charge it the same way you would your phone.
      Hope that helps.

      I think your sister would love it.

      If you have any other questions, do let me know,

      Greg

    That is so cool! I play piano and guitar, and there is nothing more frustrating than stopping in the middle of a song to turn the pages. Thanks for the great review!

  • Brandon

    I’m most definitely always using SongBook, so it should come as no surprise that this typical Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal caught my eye. It’s great that it works good for your browser and PDF reader!

    And the amount of apps it can be used with makes it a no-brainer! Thank you so much for this great review. I’ll definitely be checking out this product.

    Cheers,
    Brandon

    I got this Item and have been using it for a couple of months with Songbook. Yes its is made of plastic but is more sturdy than some would lead you to believe and it works just as advertised. Great

    Bonjour, j’essaie de jumeler cette pedale sur mon pc sous windows 10.
    Je n’y arrive pas car la pedale est d’abord reconnue comme un clavier , ensuite viens l’enoncé
    bluethooth music pedal et quand je veux la jumeler il me met le message suivant
    entrer le code pin pour votre clavier
    comment faire pour lui faire comprendre que ce n’est pas un clavier?

    Je suis dans l’impasse
    Si quelqu’un a la methode , merci de m’expliquer.

    Google Translate:

    ” Hello, I try to pair this pedal on my pc under windows 10.
    I can not do it because the pedal is first recognized as a keyboard, then come the statement
    Bluethooth music pedal and when I want to pair it it puts me the following message
    Enter the pin code for your keyboard
    How to make him understand that this is not a keyboard?

    I’m in the dead end
    If someone has the method, please explain.”

      I’m not sure, I never used those apps. You would have to check with the maker of the apps to see if they can use foot pedals.

  • Dave S

    Hi. Do you know if it can be configured so the left pedal turns a page and right pedal moves up or down?
    Also do you know what the 3.5mm sockets are for either side of the charger socket?
    Thanks
    Dave

    I bought a Donner BT pedal that lasted 17 months, used infrequently on the carpet.
    It broke because:
    a) the design of the pedal uses a flexing motion of the plastic hinge
    b) the material selection that fails due to fatigue.

    It was a great pedal until it failed. But be warned, it will fail – there’s just no getting around it.

    I had a dialogue with Donner explaining the design flaws above, and while they did never acknowledge they offered 50% discount on a new pedal. I did not accept the offer, since it would also fail.

    Donner customer service was prompt, but they failed to address the issue.

    On Amazon, you will see good reviews – while the pedal works, and then the pedal fails. So not many folks do an update. But you can read the common failure on Amazon.

    I can’t recommend this pedal.
