Didn't we already talk about this a few days ago? Or perhaps that was another forum...?

The action is the same as the Electro 3/4HP, so probably inferior to that used in the existing Nord Piano. However, the purpose is this board is to be as lightweight and portable as possible - not to offer the most realistic touch.

Cheers,
James

Seems they are targeting light weight.

7 KG lighter than the HA 88, only 73 keys but I expect there is a market for it.

Plus some people just have to have lots of red things!!

Yea, you're right ... sorry.

I looked at my Google news feed and saw this 'new' item and didn't look here first.
