Korg Announce New Piano
The new SP-250

Despite the sturdy appearance of the latest Korg digital piano, the new SP-250 is designed with portability in mind, with and expanded range of expression and performance with "an outstanding new stereo piano sound", matched by Korg's newest RH3 keyboard action. The SP-250 features all-new piano PCM with velocity switched stereo samples that are longer than other pianos in its class. Increased sample length means the piano sound sustains more naturally, so the piano sounds more real throughout the performance, not just at the attack. Complementing this is Korgs third-generation 88-note RH3 real weighted graded hammer action keybed with excellent playability, even when playing quick repeated notes and trills. Three dynamic touch curves tailor the pianos response to any players touch or style. A total of 30 built-in sounds are provided, including 12 types of acoustic and electric pianos, plus jazz and church organs, mallets, harpsichord/clavinet, choir, strings and guitar. Adjustable reverb and chorus can be programmed for each sound. A damper-style pedal features half-pedaling realism, and attaches to the lower crossbar of the included stand to prevent it from creeping during performance. The dedicated easy-assemble stand fits securely into the piano body for a solid feel. The SP-250s control panel features LED indicators to provide instant visual feedback to the player. The black body features attractive steel and wood-grain accents, and is extremely lightweight. Also included is a sturdy music rack. A built-in speaker system with optimized bass-reflex enclosure delivers a full and resonant sound. The onboard metronome allows control over tempo and meter, with an accent on each downbeat. Dual headphone output jacks enable private practice or student/teacher listening. An audio output enables connection to an external amplifier or sound system. MIDI in and out connectors enable connection to any MIDI-equipped device, for controlling other instruments and recording the SP-250, which can even be used as a 16-part multi-timbral sound source. The SP-250 is shipping now for a retail price of $1,199.
