Heinrich282, 15.04.2020
I bought the SL88 Grand two years back, when I needed a proper 88 keyboard, to emulate a piano-like playing experience. I use it in its most simple way: Take a MIDI cable, connect to a Nord Electro, and play piano/electric piano on the SL88. I had Studiologics before, so I knew they are not very "roadworthy" (external power block, cheaper materials).

The keybed, with its wood keys and triple sensor technology, is a joy to play - so far, so good.

But after a year of - light - use I noticed the first "stripes" on the TFT color screen (where the light cells don't work properly anymore). By now a second row of cells has gone, and it is basically waiting for the TFT panel to break down completely.

I can't comment on the quality of the software, but I can't recommend buying this keyboard any more, given the quality issue I have. Imagine you want to use this as a proper master keyboard and are depending on the screen to work ...

Awesome feeling, close to an acoustic piano
Alvaro Caceres, 07.05.2020
I use this controller together with PianoTeq, to compose and play. I play classical music and so I was looking for a MIDI controller that felt like an actual acoustic piano (or as close as possible).

Setup is quite straightforward and provides lots of options. You can use it with pedals like the Yamaha FC 3A, if you want to make the most out of realistic VSTs like PianoTeq.

I would have preferred to have the double escapement mechanism, and a pitchwheel instead of a joystick. Other than that, this MIDI controller is awesome, the best one I've ever tried.

Not convinced on the build quality
31.03.2016
I had to change the SL88 Grand to a another copy several times because of faulty / quirky keys.
Many of the keys were noisy, and they seemed to rub against something inside the instrument. Lot of clicking and rubbing noises.
Another thing was inconsistency on the key action or key playability. Some of the keys seemed to be more light than others. And these differences in playability or noisiness were arbitrary along the key bed.
Eventually I tested 3 copies of SL88 GRAND and then gave in.
I really wanted to like this instrument. And apart from keybed defects, the Sl88 GRAND would be a great instrument with nice MIDI-features.

My impression is that the action of this controller is pretty good, although there was a little rattling key on the fast repetitions. I had an issue with some of the keys on the high pitch side, since I felt that they were not playing as clear as they they were supposed to. I did not manage to succeed in using the software tat comes with the product, and I did not find any video on the web to help in great detail. There are several velocity curves available, and this helps, but also in this case I did not manage to make them more flexible. Again, I think that the issue with this product is the lack of support online which would be instead necessary. There is online only a video by Chris Martirano that illustrates the product, which is good, but I did not find it sufficient. The manual is clearly not sufficient.
I would say, anyhow, that this is a 4-5 star product overall, for its quality, being also very quite. It can make a traditionla pianist quite happy.
Thomann handling: 5 stars, as usual. They are fantastic
