STAGE VINTAGE PIANO
- Bill Payne
The SV-1 has been captivating audiences since 2009. Now, the acclaimed Korg SV-1 Stage Vintage Piano has been given an elegant matte black stage finish: the SV-1BK Black.
Housed in a sleek, curvaceous body, the SV-1BK offers an elegant on-stage appearance. Coupled with retro-style controls and smooth black finish, the SV-1BK oozes desirability – and playability! An optional collapsible black stand is available, along with a gig-ready rolling soft case.
Let’s begin with Piano. The SV-1BK contains not just one, but multiple piano sounds, including a Japanese Grand Piano, a German Grand Piano, an authentic upright, and more. Then there is the Vintage. The SV-1BK Stage Vintage Piano offers the most rewarding compendium of electro-mechanical, transistorized, tape-driven, analog, and early digital keyboards ever available in a single instrument. Crafted using Korg's RX (Real eXperience) Technology; each sound is a detailed and authentic re-creation, accurately capturing the full range of expression and dynamics of the original. But for Korg, even that is not enough. The SV-1BK also provides access to the effect pedals, amplifiers, speaker cabinets and studio techniques that gave these sounds their original shine. Together, they provide fingertip access to the sounds that defined generations of popular keyboard playing.
Designed with performance in mind, the SV-1BK is a pleasure to play. Once you try it, you'll understand what all the excitement is about. The RH3 Real Weighted Hammer Action is the finest keybed Korg offers, with a solid, responsive feel that inspires confidence. Forget menus. Never mind banks and programs. Stop staring at displays. With the SV-1BK, the entire front panel is always live, using clearly labeled knobs to dial up just the sound you are looking for. Saving your eight Favorite settings for quick recall is as easy as saving a station on your car radio.
Best of all, the Korg SV-1BK provides an economical, reliable, portable, and maintenance-free alternative to collecting and maintaining a stable of vintage instruments. The cabinet styling (and optional Black stand) clearly defines the SV-1BK as an instrument that was made to be played; providing a retro-chic appearance that reflects the pulse and heart of the original instruments.
Metallic Red body of 2017 vintage.
The crimson body of the 73-key SV-1 left a strong impact when it went on sale in 2009. It has since gone out of production, but in response to user requests has now reappeared in a new red even better looking than the original. The glamourous body with its lush curves is coated in a metallic red that sparkles dynamically when viewed from different angles, revealing its luster and depth. This brilliant red is more enticing than ever on stage. In contrast, the operating panel facing the performer features a black color scheme that is easy to read and operate. Hot and cool. This instrument brings them both together.
Don't miss this latest and most beautiful red SV-1.
*A limited number of SV-1 88-MR or SV-1 73-MR units will be sold.
