Safe for Little Fingers

As adults, we don’t think all that much about the fall board on our pianos other than to cover the keys when we’re not playing and, if we’re honest about it, most of us only close it to keep the cat from playing raucously at 4 in the morning.

As adults with children, we know that at some point there will be more than one child at the piano and that they will argue over who gets to play or what they will play together. The argument will escalate to the point where one of them shuts the piano on the other. Many older pianos would have allowed that argument to end in the emergency room with a smashed hand and splinted fingers.

The soft close on this Hailun piano means you get to correct their argument without a medical emergency.
