Westlake Village, CA (November 10, 2020) – Guitar Center, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer, announces the availability of a revolutionary new product: the Carry-on 88-Key Folding Piano and MIDI Controller. Finding a practical solution to practice while travelling for piano and keyboard players has always been a problem. Previously, travel keyboards had smaller keys, while roll-up solutions lacked the feel of a real instrument. Weighing in at only 3.5 lbs (1.6 kg) and measuring only 12.9-inches (33 cm) long when folded, the Carry-on Folding Piano is a unique standard-sized 88-key piano in a compact, foldable, easy-to-store, portable format. With a built-in sound engine with 128 high-quality voices and 128 built-in rhythms, as well as 30 backing tracks and MIDI over USB, this is the ultimate go-anywhere piano. Additionally, with up to eight hours of playing time on a full charge via the built-in USB rechargeable battery, the Carry-on 88-Key Folding Piano and MIDI Controller is a fun and convenient way to take and make music on the go.
Play any time using headphones (3.5-mm output) or the built-in stereo speakers (the 3.5-mm output can also be used as a line-out to connect outside amplifiers and interfaces). The piano has an onboard metronome with six accent settings, plus comes with a sustain pedal, USB charging cable and a branded carry-on tote bag for safe travel.
