what is the best answer to

Eighty-eight keys=eighty eight keys, right? If not, how many are there?

Answer by Tough Mommy
It depends on the piano. Each note has three strings in the treble, two strings in the tenor and part of the bass, and only one in the very low bass. One of ours has 65 trebles (X 3=195), 12 tenor/bass (X 2=24), and 11 single low bass, so it comes out to 230. But that's a large grand, so you need to look in your piano and count them up.
