Now this looks interesting: Guitar Center introduces the Carry-on Folding Piano, a standard-sized 88-key piano that folds up for easy grab and go travel situations. The piano features 128 voices and rhythms, a MIDI Controller, weighs 3.5 lbs, measures 12.9 inches long when folded and sells for $99.
The unit features 30 backing tracks and MIDI over USB and handles up to eight hours of playing time on a full charge via the built-in USB rechargeable battery. Play any time using headphones (3.5-mm output) or the built-in stereo speakers (the 3.5-mm output can also be used as a line-out to connect outside amplifiers and interfaces). The piano has an onboard metronome with six accent settings, and comes with a sustain pedal, USB charging cable plus a branded carry-on tote bag for safe travel.
We’ll give this a test review in the coming months, so stay tuned.
