Yamaha YDP213 88-Key Digital Piano with Bench - "Besides outstanding sound, the YDP-213 offers incredibly natural piano touch. Applying the know-how acquired from over 100 years of crafting fine acoustic pianos, Yamaha has designed a remarkably expressive GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keyboard. Similar to the widely accepted Graded Hammer Effect action, GHS keys are weighted heavier on lower notes and gradually become lighter as you play up the keyboard.
