Technology has influenced a lot of things and keyboards are one of them. No, not the computer Keyboards. I mean, those musical keyboards on musical instruments and the very instrument that one can think of right away is the piano.
While there are classical pianos, technology has evolved in so many ways that electric pianos in which short strings, metal reeds, tines or tone bars were used instead of long strings were introduced later on.
It did not take that long right? Man, how technology quickly bore fruit to electronic instruments thus paving the way for different types of music. There have been variations in the design of the keyboard to address technical and musical issues. One thing is certain, some may still like the instruments with classical keyboards while others like the electronic types since they are quite handy.
