Or, if you prefer the key features listed:
Superb Playability & Feel
A Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard has a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, similar to the hammers inside an acoustic piano. GHS is great for the aspiring pianist, building strength and technique. Additionally, the matte finish of the black keys makes them less affected by moisture when playing for extended periods of time.
Authentic Pedal Response
Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes as the pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is a more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. It is possible to detect the subtle changes that occur when the player begins to press the pedal while striking a key.For comfortable practice at home
