Korg has announced the limited edition SP-170RD, a vibrant red color option for the SP-170 Digital Piano. Here's their press release with all the details...
The most portable and affordable piano Korg has ever developed, the SP-170 does not cut corners on delivering a great piano playing experience. Its streamlined design reveals no visible controls, providing an elegant and inviting presentation that focuses on what is most important in a piano – sound and feel.
The SP-170 features a duo of concert grand piano sounds, each recorded with meticulous care. Numerous velocity layers are used to capture nuances of playing dynamics, allowing the instrument to respond expressively to every touch. Eight additional highly-accurate sounds complete the palette of keyboard tones: Electric Piano (x2), Harpsichord, Clav, Vibraphone, Pipe Organ, Electric (Drawbar) Organ and Strings. Selectable Reverb and Chorus effects add warmth and spaciousness to the sound. While the SP-170 never requires tuning, it offers adjustable tuning that can be matched to other instruments, and it can also be transposed into any musical key.
As with every Korg SP digital piano model, the SP-170 features a full 88-note piano-style keyboard; three touch curves match the key response to any playing style. The newly-developed, Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) faithfully reproduces the touch and graduated weight of acoustic piano keys, while keeping the unit's weight down to a mere 26 pounds.
Completely self-contained, the SP-170 includes a built-in sound system with a pair of full-range oval speakers housed in an internal bass-reflex cabinet, resulting in a well-defined, robust and dynamic sound.
Dual headphone outputs allow for private practice plus parent/child or student/teacher use. These outputs also enable connection to recording equipment or an external amplifier. A matching music rest and sustain pedal are both included, and an optional color-matched stand is available.
For the student or hobbyist, the SP-170 can be used as the master keyboard (input device) for computer music software via the MIDI output. The power switch and volume knob are located on the back panel; all other operations are quickly performed using the keyboard itself.
Pricing and Availability:
The SP-170 will be available November 2010 with a retail price of $699.00. An optional matching wooden stand will be available with a retail price of $125.00. More information:
