And nothing changes ,. . . .
Looking into the measurements (we`ve all done this haven`t we) one gets a few surprises.
Like, the worst action (ie shortest pivot length although that isn`t everything) is ndeniably the GHS from Yamaha. And really, it ain`t bad for an entry level hammer action. Far better than on many acoustics. The Casio action has a similar length to pivot as the GHS.
Now, the GH action looked a winner. Long pivot distance, yet I don`t like it, Dunno why. GH3 feels fine, but the pivot length is no greater.
The Kawai keyboards feel good, but the RM3 with it`s offset pins has a very short pivot length. I have the photos to prove it! The Grand touch fares much better.
Both the Roland PHA 111 and PHA11 have similar wonderfully long distances. Couldn`t see the "G" anywhere, so I can`t comment.
The Korg RH3 is a winner. Feels good, and is present and correct on an entry level type piano . . .here`s a demo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dy6Y7LVCEQo
So there you have it! Scientifically based evidence.
