4 of 5 Awesome instrument, exactly what I need, squeaky. April 19, 2019
Reviewer: D. Angelet from CORNVILLE, AZ United States  
This instrument has exceeded my needs and I can see how it will continue to be useful to me as I grow musically. Aesthetically, it's beautiful and sleek. The touch sensitivity is effective and the knobs and buttons are user-friendly for quick octave changes and tone adjustments. Now for the downside: Squeaky keys! I've read a few review online for this instrument and it seems to be a frequent issue. I had to take it apart and add WD-40 to the springs. To get 5 stars, I'd like to not have to take apart my brand new instrument.
