An engaging haptic experience

The designers chose weighted, hammer-action keys for the Allegro IV, while carefully selecting a more compact keybed for the Legato IV. The key action was tuned carefully to offer piano-like feedback and demonstrates Williams’ commitment to providing a premium playing experience across their product line.
