Keyboard Instrument Comparison
Well, I have tested and write a number of product reviews about keyboard pianos, and one thing I really need to strengthen is that: generally, portable typed keyboard instrument have good functions and techniques, and they are really good for music beginners. However, they are not full sized pianos. If you were looking for very professional music piano, you should better look for those larger pianos with a number of sustain pedals. This keyboard instrument is good for music beginners to practice or learning a new tune. It’s certainly not a musical instrument but it does make musical sounds which are accurate. This keyboard instrument is very close to a true piano sound, the black notes raised just enough to get the feel of playing.
Keyboard Instrument Hands on Testing
I noticed that the keyboard instrument should be better avoid wet or high temperature working environment. Also it cannot be placed nearby strong electric waves, otherwise may effect its sound quality and correction. The main body of the keyboard instrument cannot be twisted with 90°. You should not roll it up too tight since a few of its keys may broken. I found a CD in its package, it was for me to install the keyboard instrument. It looks great, all the keys work. No problem with getting it to start. The keys are very touch sensitive. It takes sometimes for me to get use to. It easily fits in a large purse or in my drawer. I also use it with my headphones sometimes. Keys on it are reasonable even though they do not drop down. Overall it’s a great piece for its price. One more suggestion from me is that a sustain pedal could be came with the package box.
