User Review

I love these keyboards, but please upgrade your quality - Reviews Samson Technologies Graphite 49

Value For Money : Correct Audience: Beginners
This keyboard is by far the best in the controllers that I've used.
I've been using it for years on stage now.

  • + Has aftertouch (yess!!!) but should be harder, it activates to fast now.
  • + enough controller knobs and sliders
  • + good info screen
  • + handy octave/transpose button (but should be lit!)
  • + 4 pads with 2 banks (could use 8) but are not so good responsiveness
  • + low weight but bad plastics
  • - decent keybed, feel and weight, but low quality china keys that break after a while, so I bought 3 of these keyboards because they have a low price, but I always need to glue the keys internally.
  • - knobs should have better response instead of gel buttons
  • - rotary and sliders are plastic components

If this was a better quality I would never look at others again.
But unfortunate it isn't ! Please Samson make a mk2 and learn from your mistakes.
