Keyed Instruments

Easy to play keyed instruments

 

Our keyed instruments are rather different from those you'll find elsewhere as ours are mainly tuned to pentatonic or Asian scales. This makes them easy to play because these scales don't have any "wrong" notes in them and so whatever you play sounds right. All instruments should be like this!
