    Elephants are endangered so mention of ivory keys should mention this

    I deplore the use of ivory. I feel that the plastics and resins used for keys are most certainly acceptable I have no problem if someone takes ivory keys from old an old piano to use as replacements There is no need to kill or name and deform an animal. I love piano and it will always remain the crown jewel even without the ivory

    Shame on any piano maker which makes piano keys from ivory!!!!!! We MUST stop the killing and mutilation of elephants on this planet!! As a concert pianist, I used to judge a piano by its ivory keys - and refused to play on one if it did not have ivory keys. However - I am now educated - and discerning. And I have learned to play on plastic keys, which actually is not good either, since plastics are made from fossil fuel/oil. Hopefully, some day, a material will be used which won't involved killing of animals or destroying our planet. In the meantime, discourage the use of ivory keys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
