      A portable digital stage piano with matching black metal stand and damper pedal.

      Korg brings a heightened level of realism and feel to its line of portable digital stage pianos with the SP-250. The Korg SP-250 provides an expanded range of expression and performance with an outstanding new stereo piano sound, which is matched to a third-generation RH3 graded action keyboard. It's the perfect answer for any pianist looking for rich piano sounds and the convenience of a lightweight, portable instrument.

      Superb piano sound in a digital stage piano
      The robust sound of a concert grand piano has been carefully and lavishly sampled for this digital stage piano. Differences in playing dynamics and position in the stereo field have been faithfully captured, delivering naturally expressive piano sounds that recreate every detail. The SP-250's piano samples are longer than other pianos in its class. Increased length means the piano sound sustains more naturally, so the piano sounds more real throughout the performance, not just at the attack. Three versions of sound are provided in this wonderful and portable digital stage piano to cover different tastes and genre needs. To round out the piano offerings, the SP-250 also features a vintage electric grand sound, as well as an authentic honky-tonk piano.

      Grand piano playing experience
      The SP-250 is the first portable digital stage piano from Korg to feature the RH3 real weighted hammer action. This state-of-the-art key mechanism features differing key weights in each register of the keyboard, delivering the same playing experience as a grand piano. The keyboard is exceptionally responsive, even when playing quickly repeated figures, to preserve every expressive nuance of the performer. The Key Touch Control provides three selectable touch curves, delivering the perfect touch sensitivity for every playing style or type of song. Yet, even with such a robust keyboard, the SP-250 weighs less than 42 pounds.

      A wide palette of sounds
      In addition to its remarkable piano sound, the SP-250 portable digital stage piano includes a rich array of sounds that will extend your performance possibilities. An assortment of classic electric pianos (reed and tine styles), church and jazz organs, string and choir sounds, harpsichord and clav(s) elements and even mallet percussion and guitar sounds - are all available at the touch of a button. Two sounds can be layered together to play simultaneously; and of course, you can adjust the balance to get the perfect blend. To help you audition the sounds, 30 demonstration songs ranging from classics to originals are built in to this digital stage piano, showing off all the sounds in a variety of musical genres.

      Dual effects
      To further enhance the sound, the SP-250 provides both a Reverb effect, that recreates the spaciousness of a concert hall, and a Chorus effect that adds a colorful depth to the sound. The effects settings have been optimized for each individual sound and the user can choose from three levels - Light, Normal and Deep - to complement his or her performance.

      Style and versatility
      The chic body design is highlighted by metal and wood-grain accents, with a solid music rack included that mounts in seconds. The control panel is simple and easy-to-use and includes 19 LED indicators providing for instant visual feedback. The SP-250 is perfect for those who appreciate quality in both sound and design.

      Full-range sound system
      The SP-250 contains a custom system, featuring two 10cm dual-cone speakers matched to a pair of 11-Watt amplifiers that beautifully reproduce the rich sounds of a piano. The bass reflex speaker system ensures that every bit of the deep resonances distinctive to a great piano will be heard.

      Stand and pedal included
      This portable digital stage piano includes a high-quality damper pedal that is vital for proper piano performance. It provides the ultimate expressive control thanks to half-pedaling, which is a variable damping effect based on how deep you press the pedal, rather than the simple on/off switch found on cheaper instruments. The dedicated stand is both simple and stylish, and fits securely into a recessed area in the bottom of the piano, providing a remarkably solid feel. The stand's lower crossbar even prevents the pedal from "creeping" forward in performance. Best of all, the SP-250 can be easily removed from the stand for easy moving and carrying during live performances.

      Convenient features
      Two headphones can be connected simultaneously, providing for student-teacher use or family enjoyment. Thanks to stereo outputs, you can listen to the sounds of the SP-250 through external speakers, a great feature for professional performances, schools and places of worship, and for recording purposes. MIDI In/Out jacks connect the SP-250 portable digital stage piano to a synthesizer or other MIDI-equipped device (computer/sequencer), allowing the SP-250 to be used as both a master keyboard and a 16-part multitimbral sound module for performance and composition.

      The Key Transpose function lets you shift the pitch of the instrument to match the key of a singer, or to play along with your favorite CDs. An onboard Metronome is convenient for practicing. You can add an accent to the first beat (with normal or bell sounds), and adjust its volume. There's also a dedicated slider for easy adjustment of the tempo.

      In addition to equal temperament, the SP-250 provides the two most common Baroque- and Classical-era tunings (Kirnberger and Werckmeister) for historically-accurate performances.

      Comments about Korg SP-250BK Portable Digital Stage Piano:

      Beginning as an acoustic player, I highly value a natural 'touch' to support expression - this makes playing fun for me. The RH3 technology truely gives the most 'natural touch' (soft-to-loud) of all the digital pianos I tried when piano shopping. As an RVer, I couldn't take my grand piano, nor did I want to spend a fortune on an electronic one. I play routinely, but not frequently. This piano hits the mark! It's simple to operate, has internal speakers-don't deal with amp/etc. unless I want to and it has just enough synth sounds for my tastes. I've had it for nearly 10 months and like everything about it-including it's warm/rich sound. If I could make any changes (as an RVer moving around), it would be to get smaller version (73 keys instead of 88-reducing size/weight) and make the stand simpler to break down/fold (it's very sturdy/keeps sustain pedal in place-very good!). The "X" stands are more portable, but also more bulky.

      What? Need better tracking/compensation

            Comments about Korg SP-250BK Portable Digital Stage Piano:

            I didn't receive this model. I called to report you sent a more expensive one and got $25.00 off the higher priced item so no one would have to pay for shipping. Customer service person said someone would be calling me to discuss the additional payment and no one did. You just went ahead and charged my credit card the extra amount. For something that was your mistake and having made an honest effort on my part the compensation was meager.

            Good and Solid

            By Michael Nepodal

            from Rural South Dakota

            Comments about Korg SP-250BK Portable Digital Stage Piano:

            I recently purchased the Korg SP-250 BK Dig. Stage Piano for use of playing in my weekend dance band. I think it plays well, sounds good, has great action, and good basic features. I like it very much.
            It is a little heavy and even heavier in the road case I store it in.
            I used to use an M-Audio. I used it for a midi controller and my sounds were generated by a Roland sound module. The M-Audio served it purpose as did the Roland Sound Module but the two quit working together so I had to use the sounds that were built into the M-Audio outfit. The SP 250 is definitely a number of steps up and built so much better. The action is very very good as are the sounds. I have not tried to sound module thru this keyboard as the sounds are as good if not better.
            A good sounding sturdy outfit that sounds good! Not too bad of price either.
