Korg says that as their SV-1 is a mainstay of the stage, and following their tradition of creating various versions through the years, they have unveiled a limited edition high-gloss Metallic Red painted variant for 2017. They say that this retro-style performance keyboard housed in a sleek, curvaceous body offers a comprehensive collection of sounds for the live player; vintage electric pianos, funky clavs, classic and favorite organs, string machines, analog/digital electronic contenders and world class acoustic pianos.
The company tells us that, available in 73 and 88-note version, the new SV-1 MRD limited edition's striking color model is complemented by red panel LEDs to accentuate the tube, rotary encoders and Favorites buttons. SV-1 also features Korg's premium RH3 Real Graded Hammer action for a solid, expressive feel.
James Sajeva, Director of Technology Brands at Korg USA, had this to say, "A true showstopper, the SV-1 recreates the look, feel and experience of performing on a vintage instrument like none other. With the combination of SV-1's essential sounds, the modern mainstays of a performance synth, and the most eye-catching color variant we've ever offered, the SV1MRD oozes appeal."
Pricing and Availability:
The SV-1 in Metallic red will be available in April of 2017 for $1,499.99 for the 73-note and $1,699.99 for the 88-note.
