@sem: Ah, so I saw your post at the top of my page, and did not see that there were more than a dozen prior posts. Sorry for the confusion.

I wouldn't expect this feasible, because weighted hammer actions weigh much more than 4 kg and need more space vertically (thickness).

I would add that piano keys with standard width and spacing produces a keybed of 88 keys that is 4 ft or slightly over 4 ft in width. This folding piano appears to be a little narrower than that. It is 2ft wide when folded, but that includes the plastic end piece. The conclusion I draw is that it does not have standard width keys.


Repertoire interests: early Baroque through early Romantic eras.

Hi Alpha--I am having a heck of time trying to set the sustain to on. That encoder button is driving me crazy. Do you know the secret to Selecting Sustain and then "gently pressing the button" to turn sustain on and off? It appears to be a very fiddly process and I have not figure sit out yet. Thanks

Hey sorry I’ve just used it with the sustain pedal. On Pianoteq or Ravenscroft you can select the sustain to stay on on the software interface.

I’m not selling these keyboards or affiliated with them. I find I have to adjust the dynamic settings for each piece.

I think it’s great for what it is, but is a downgrade from any hammer action piano, and I believe I’ve always emphasized that the dynamics are the main thing that could improve.

So far imo it’s the best ultra portable full sized solution when taking into account price v performance, but lots of room for dynamics improvement.

Thanks . . . I guess I need to check out more of the settings within Pianoteq and use those and give up on the keyboard's sustain "feature".
