THE PIANO KEYBOARD-AN ANACHRONISM? QB FEATURES # 2 QSHED ENTRY

THE QB KEYBOARD IS PATTERNED AFTER THE QUARTAL GUITAR FINGERBOARD AND REQUIRES ELECTRONIC TONE GENERATION. 

THE PIANO KEYBOARD IS PATTERNED AFTER THE HORIZONTAL HARP, IT REQUIRES STRINGS BECAUSE THAT WAS THE ONLY PRACTICAL SOUND AVAILABLE AT ITS INCEPTION.

I’M SURE A SQUARED GRID OF KEYS WAS A SERIOUS CONSIDERATION AT THAT TIME, HOWEVER,  ANY ACOUSTIC TONE GENERATION, EVEN STRINGS, WOULD HAVE FOILED THE QB’S CLAIM TO SIZE AND PORTABILITY.

QSHED ENTRIES 01/12/20

Please remember, at this time, All QSHED entries are performed on the QB prototype (QB-P2).
