    I was wondering how many keys does a standard piano keyboard have?

    88 keys is the standard number.
  4. Why do you want to know? You going around stealing the odd key to make your own piano?

    That's 60 keys, which is what my Synth has.

    Standard is 88 keys.

    Didn't you watch the Dick Tracy movie?:p
