Ultra lightweight (et)

Micha E, 29.04.2013
The keyboard is advertised by the manufacturer as "half-weighted", but while on other half-weighted keyboards small metal plates are glued from below into the keys, partially covered with plastic, only thin plastic plaques have been glued in the Samson keyboard. As a result, the "weighting" of the keyboard is so small that it is hardly noticeable. "Half-weighted" is in any case strongly exaggerated, "lightweighted" it meets rather - "ultralight" ...
The white buttons are also slightly narrower than standard buttons, about 1/2 mm per button (as with the current simple Yamaha keyboards). This results in an overall length of 830 mm for the 61 keyboard, 850 mm is normal. As much narrower as in the Bonedo test report (there is written from 5 cm to 2 octaves, which would be 3.5 mm per white key), however, the keys are not. The distance between the buttons is considerable 1.5 mm (but also not 2 mm as mentioned in the Bonedo test report). In addition, the white keys were already scratched ex factory, especially between the black keys. Otherwise, the keyboard did not make a bad impression, it did not rattle, could be played evenly evenly and the slightly lower key width was no problem for me. I already had a lot worse under my fingers. With the attack dynamics and their (small) adjustment possibilities I could not but amused.
The 3-digit display does not light up as much as with some other devices that partially blind the eyes. But in the case of solar radiation, the Samson display might be too pale and thus possibly not recognizable.

The processing of the keyboard was otherwise okay, the price reasonable, and the few controls worked flawlessly and could be well adapted to the needs, ie (reprogramm).

But I just wanted a half-weighted keyboard and that's why it went back again - will probably have to spend a little more money ...

The keyboard is quite good for the price, and also has nice settings with the wheels and buttons. The attack dynamics are totally uncontrollable, even with the different Velocity curves. With nem Synthi that goes still, but if you want to play a beautiful piano, some notes are simply "swallowed", so Velocity = 0. That goes back again.
