Because Yamaha follows through on GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) it gives the keyboard an authentic acoustic piano feel. Changes will occur in tone and volume, depending on how you play it.

Like any other products, it has its weak points but sound quality, touch and feel more than make up for the downside.
