Korg is now shipping the SP-250 keyboard, which offers stereo piano sound that is matched to the company’s newest RH3 keyboard action.
The SP-250 features all-new piano PCM with velocity switched stereo samples, reportedly longer than other pianos in its class, for a more realistic sound. The keyboard also features Korg’s third-generation 88-note RH3 real weighted graded hammer action keybed, three dynamic touch curves, a total of 30 built-in sounds, 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 SP-250’s control panel features brilliant LED indicators, black body with steel and wood-grain accents, and sturdy music rack.
Additional features include built-in speaker system with optimized bass-reflex enclosure, onboard, dual headphone output jacks for private practice or student/teacher listening, audio output for connection to an external amplifier or sound system, MIDI in and out connectors for connection to any MIDI-equipped device, for controlling other instruments and recording the SP-250, which can be used as a 16-part multi-timbral sound source.
The SP-250 carries a retail price of $1,199.
