other musical equipment includes an electric piano: Ensonique KY 32, 77-keys, touch sensitive, weighted keys, and in a custom built hard shell case. i have the manual too. i also have a Korg M-1 synth and two stands, one newer sturdy one that holds both the piano and the keyboard, and a plastic one that came with the piano. all the pianists who have played it agreed for the money it has the best feel and is the most 'playable' like an acoustic.
