Axus have been busy expanding their keyboard range these last couple of months, with the release of both the fantastic AXP2 and AXP10. For any beginner player, these models are perfect to get started, but what is the difference between them? Well you’re about to find out!

AXP10

axus-axp10First up, let’s have a look at the AXP10, the latest keyboard to join the Axus family. This is a very affordable keyboard for anyone who’s not sure whether they’ll stick with it, but also gives a great amount of different functions to give you the perfect introduction. It has 61 ‘boxed style’ keys, which is standard for portable keyboards at this level, alongside a whole range of different instrument voices and backing styles. Perfect for younger children and classroom environments, the AXP10 is designed to handle a range of scenarios and to be a great alternative to more popular ‘branded’ instruments.

AXP2

Going a step up from that, you’re looking at the AXP2. This has similar functions to the AXP10, but is aimed more towards players who need a bit more. The main advantage to this you ask; touch sensitive keys. We talk about these a lot, but they are recommended for anyone learning the piano. With the touch sensitivity, the keys respond exactly how you’d expect an acoustic piano to sound. The harder you press the keys, the louder the sound and vice versa. This is a feature found on the AXP2, but not the AXP10. Again, a higher price but for a more developed keyboard feel.

So, all in all…
