This was purchased for my 17 year old and my 9 year old. They LOVE it.....and it sounds just like they were playing on a real piano. It is perfect for the 17 year old that has taught himself to play and would like to record some music and my 9 year old who will be taking piano lessons. It was so helpful to speak with a SamAsh rep. (Evan) and get his input and suggestions after hearing what we were looking for. It turned out to be the perfect gift!
