The start of a new year is always an exciting time, but even better with new instruments to play with! Here at Normans, we are launching a brand-new keyboard to join the ‘AXUS’ family. The AXP10.
Designed with aspiring musicians in mind, this keyboard has everything a beginner needs to get started! It is also perfect for schools and music education, due to its affordable price yet robust design, which is essential for the classroom!
First up, let’s talk about the keys.
With the AXP10, you have 61 ‘boxed’ keys, which is the perfect amount for grasping scales, chords and all the other essentials. You’ll mention I say ‘boxed’, which means they feel and look more like what you’d expect on a full-size piano.
Straight away, you get a better response than some other models on the market.
Next, the voices.
The amount of sounds you get on this keyboard for the price is incredible, 128 to be exact! These range from guitars to trumpets, saxophones to drums. Experiment with different instruments, and try to recreate some of your favourite songs! You practically have an entire orchestra to play around with!
That’s not all of course!
Along with the voices, you also are treated to 255 backing rhythms, all at your disposal. Switch between ‘jazz’ to ‘rock & roll’ instantly, and you can create lots of fun music! Use the on-board chord accompaniment function to control the rhythm, whilst you play the melody on-top of it!
Finding time to practice without disturbing anyone is an issue all musicians face at some point in their schedules. The AXP10 solves this problem instantly, by having an in-built headphone port on the back of the keyboard. With the supplied headphones, you can play for as long as you want without worrying about the noise for your neighbours or parents!
So that is the AXP10! Pretty great if you ask us, and certainly an eye-catcher for anyone looking to start on a budget! You can watch our short video on the product listing to hear it in action!
