Questions tagged [digital-piano]

A digital piano is a modern electronic musical instrument, different from the electronic keyboard, designed to serve primarily as an alternative to a traditional piano, both in the way it feels to play and in the sound produced. A digital piano has weighted touch-sensitive keys and the sustain pedal. Instruments without these features should be tagged with the [Keyboard] tag instead.
