I just started playing it and have found that when I hit the notes hard, particularly the black notes, particularly those in the lower half of the keyboard, the keys make a clicking sound.
I was wondering if anyone has any experience of this and whether I should assume:
a) this is just what happens with a cheapish keyboard
b) this is a beedding-in issue and will disappear once the thing has been played in properly
c) the keyboard is faulty and I should get it replaced
Thanks in advance
If the keyboard weighs 12kg, as you say, then you're going to find that the keyboard won't absorb the impact as well as a heavier keyboard - I've always found that. It's one of the reasons that I am selling my Yamaha CP-33.
As for the clicking noise, it could be related to what I said about a lighter unit.
Korg, when it comes to era such as M1 and such digital pianos, had a miserable piano sound, but these days Korg produces really beautiful piano sound. I also compared Yamaha P-95 and Korg and I liked the action better on Korg and the piano sound was pretty much teh same on both ones.
