This is a really good piece of kit, it isn't as good as a lot of the keytars out there but it isn't as expensive, i love the feel of being able to walk around playing the piano which has awesome sounds on it and awesome for walking round at festivals playing, i highly recommend this product unless you can afford the higher end keytars.
