NAMM 2007: Introducing the Behringer Eurogrand EG540
When Behringer started the EUROGRAND project, they invited concert pianists, church musicians and piano teachers to give us input on their digital dream piano. They came up with a wish list that appeared just about impossible to achieve.
They wanted a digital piano to rival the sound of the finest acoustic piano. It should incorporate an 88-key, weighted hammer-action keyboard that provides the touch and feel of a concert grand.
Far from done with their requests, they also asked for 14 authentic instrument sounds, 40 Watts of stereo power and a 2-track sequencer for rehearsals. All built into an elegant wood grain cabinet with black finish. Impossible?
Behringer did it. After 2 years of hard work, those musicians have approved Their masterpiece. While there are no strings attached, the EUROGRAND sounds and feels like real. And music to your ears: It has a price that everyone can afford.
