Learning Piano vs Learning Keyboard – Step 2
Another difference between acoustic pianos and electric keyboards that should be taken into consideration by anyone considering in investing in an instrument is the nature of the keys. A lot of keyboards, especially those that are lighter and easier to carry around, have thin and narrow plastic keys that can feel cheap, and that do not take into account the subtle differences of pressure that are produced by an acoustic piano. Luckily, some modern electronic keyboards are introducing weighted keys that are the same size as a regular piano and incorporate many of the same factors that create the unique sound of an acoustic piano.
This is definitely worth remembering if you are using an electronic keyboard as a starter instrument and plan on eventually upgrading to a full piano. The transition from the thin keys of the keyboard to the full, thick keys of the piano can be disconcerting, and will require some adjustment. Some keyboards even have graded hammer action, or scaled hammer action, which lends a heavier touch to the bass notes in an octave.
