The touch (weight of the key, recoil, etc.) is the aspect that you have to take into account the most when choosing a good Schimmel piano, followed by the quality of the sound, the number of sounds, and other factors such as weight, space, aesthetics and robustness of the furniture. We go into these factors in depth:
The Importance Of Counterweight When Choosing A Digital Piano
Most Schimmel pianos from Greene Music today have weighted keys; they imitate the actual weight of the acoustic piano’s hammer when pressed. This is one of the main differences with most keyboards, in which the keys are weightless.
We have an entry dedicated to weighted pianos if you want to find out in-depth information, although ultimately if you want to learn to play the piano with determination, the weights are counterbalanced when buying an electronic piano. If the piano is for a small child or you want to buy it for pure entertainment and do not want to delve into its study, we suggest you buy an electronic keyboard since pianos without weighted keys are easier to play.
Another factor to consider is the keyboard’s sensitivity, which is closely related to the previous point. Weighted pianos have greater. As we increase in quality, the sensitivity will increase, in which the volume of the keys will vary depending on the intensity with which we play, becoming more and more similar to acoustic pianos. Here, we think it is important to highlight that it will be on a grand piano where we will examine ourselves at the conservatory. If the pulsation is not similar enough, it will be difficult for us to interpret in the same way in our exam what we do so well at home.
How Many Keys Should A Piano Have? The Number Of Octaves
The number of octaves is another decision when choosing your Schimmel at Greene Music for example. An octave is the number of times they are repeated.
The normal thing for a digital piano is 88 keys (a little more than 7 octaves), although in the case of keyboards, the number of octaves is usually less, and the number of keys is usually less than 76. We recommend a minimum of five octaves, ideally more than 7 octaves. Many songs cannot be played with these keyboards, as there are not enough high or low sounds on the piano to play.
