This instrument brings GHS technology, also known as Standard Graduated Hammer, one of the features that most influences its price.
The GHS converts the light keys to weighted keys, which is useful for beginners at the piano, because it requires more strength in the hands of the pianist, strengthening and increasing skill. Due to this technology, when the student plays a grand piano he will not feel much difference in the weight of the keys. The hammers are graduated in three zones, emulating the strings of a real piano, the low keys are heavier than the middle and high keys.
And as for the functions of this piano, we can highlight the metronome, which you can use to study songs, exercises, scales, etc. This can be adjusted according to the tempo you want, fast or slow, to gradually evolve in the execution of the instrument. Also, the metronome has volume adjustment, in case you want to lower or raise it a little, according to your preferences.
On the other hand, the student and the teacher will be able to take advantage of the Duet mode of this piano, since it separates the keyboard into 2 equal parts. In this way, learning by repetition will be much more effective. In addition to this, this piano is very easy to use, because it has a function button to control the metronome, timbres, demos and songs.
