Frequently Asked Questions
This section contains some frequently asked questions about the Balanced keyboard.


Can I buy one from somewhere?
There is no manufacturer producing the Balanced keyboard. However, you can easily re-arrange the keys of many electronic keyboards into the Balanced keyboard layout - see the Build one section of this website for more details.


Isn't the term "Balanced" already used to refer to keyboards with balanced hammer actions?
Yes it is. However, the exact terminology is 'balanced hammer action keyboard' rather than 'balanced keyboard'. Nowadays it is more widely known as 'weighted action' - the term 'balanced' is more known to piano experts than the general public. When deciding on a name, many other potential names, such as 'uniform' and 'symmetrical', were already used to describe other keyboard designs. So 'Balanced' it became!
