The Piano Keyboard:
Some Modern Renovations
The Kanko Keyboard
The idea of shorter sections stacked like we see in large concert organs was even more rarefied in the Janko keyboard, which had six stacks, each containing an entire scale.
The Mangeot Keyboard
This innovation was invented in the late 19th century, and had two keyboards, one for each hand. The right hand keyboard was set up normally, except lower and shorter. The keyboard for the left hand was reversed so that the high notes of that keyboard were where the low notes had traditionally been placed.
The Clutsam Keyboard
This keboard was invented before there was a name for ergonomic design. The line of the Clutsam keyboard was curved to imitate the arc of the pianist's arms, much like the footpedals on a concert organ are curved to match the arc produced by the organist's legs.
None of these innovations has come close to replacing the classic piano keyboard we all know and love. This makes piano keyboard repair much more predictable.
