Title: MODULAR MULTI-STATE STACKABLE ELECTRIC PIANO
Abstract:
Disclosed is a modular multi-state stackable electric piano (MMSSEP) that comprises a power module and one or more octave modules connected together. The MMSSEP may have two states: a play state and a retracted/transport state. The octave module can be connected to and disconnected from a connected series of octave modules individually or in a group with other octave modules via the inter-octave connector. Three different retraction schemes optimize the octave modules to stack on top of each other. A weighted hammer that can move under a key and lock in place is implemented in the MMSSEP.
