Loud hammer noise, Try it before making a purchase!
on 10 October 2014
I thought it was high rated, I thought it was Casio, I thought it couldn't be any worse than my 14 year-old keyboard (not electric piano), so I thought it would be Okay. But I was Wrong!
When I first saw it, it looked so nice, the keys were like those of a piano. But as soon as I removed the seal and press a key... something wasn't right here.
There was a loud hammer sound coming from every single key I pressed, Khuk Khuk Khuk..., unless I pressed it very very softly. I know it's the hammer's sound, the touch felt really like a piano's hammer, but this was just way too loud.
I didn't want to trouble myself returning this 16 kg package, so I tried to be optimistic. Hopefully, I might get used to, and be able to use it. So, I turn the volume max to cut the hammer sound. Starting with a ballad, well, not too bad.
The problem is... I don't play a lot of ballad, I love BAROQUE...
No more than 2 bars, I started my favorite piece of Hendel, and I could not continue this "ugly" play. Seriously, I cannot play with this instrument!
Though I had to pay quite an amount of money for sending it back, I did not hesitate to made a refund. Thank you Amazon for very good service.
I learnt that, I must have tried it before making a purchase of a (digital) piano.
Different people have different preferences, the instruments can vary.
So I suggest you try this model before actually buying it.
By the way, it comes with a pedal, so, no need to buy extra one, unless you want a specific model.
