This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Jesus, finally! It's about time someone made this. I hate how there isn't a keyboard in the game. The grand piano takes way too much space. Thank you so much!

Thank you! I use keyboards like this all the time in Sims 2 and I had been longing for one in Sims 4. The pianos, especially the grand piano takes so much space that only my rich Sims had room for it. Now everyone can have this! Again thank you for sharing.

Thank you very much, had hoped someone would make a smaller piano. This keyboard will be used because I haven't played a musician, haven't heard the piano songs or nothing. Very appreciated.

*ETA: What's the point of having a struggling musician if there is no keyboard to start off with? Geeze, EA! :faceslap:

Thanks very much. I agree with Lewis, can't believe there was no keyboard to start with. I am hoping we get a few more instruments as we go along. Drums, maybe tambourine (the actions would be hilarious), saxophone maybe.

I have been wanting this since day one when I realized there were only full sized pianos.

Thank you, Shredded! This answers my need for an upright (i.e., a smaller, more compact) piano. The baby grand piano in game is a problem to place in a smaller home. Thanks again!

Thanks for this awesome mod, I needed this soooo much! One question: is it portable, you know, can it go to the sim's inventory?

This is absolutely needed for tiny lots or ones with many sims.
Mind if I ask an additional portable feature like TS3 keyboards?
Thanks in advance.
