Superb sound and outstanding design that will enhance any room.
The C1 offers levels of playability and versatility that will exceed the expectations of the most demanding pianist. From the very first note, the depth and clarity of sound that the C1 delivers from its compact, slim-line cabinet will astound both player and audience alike. The precisely engineered keyboard provides a feel and response that has been designed to help the student develop a sound playing technique while responding fully to the demands of the more advanced player.
First and foremost, the KORG C1 is a superb piano, both as an exciting alternative to an acoustic instrument or in locations where a traditional instrument could not be used. It never needs tuning and can be used with headphones to avoid disturbing others.
Furthermore, a variety of additional features will inspire new levels of creativity in players of all abilities and enhance their enjoyment of music, including 30 superbly realistic instrument sounds, Bluetooth audio streaming and on-board recording. Designed and manufactured in Japan, the KORG C1 redefines the digital piano.
The C1 features the real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keyboard that accurately simulates the playing experience of a grand piano, with a heavier playing feel in the lower register that becomes lighter as you move up the keyboard. It is extremely responsive, even when notes are repeated quickly, while the performer’s expressive dynamics are faithfully interpreted even in the most complex passages. Key touch control is also provided, with a choice of five levels of sensitivity (light, normal, heavy, stable, fixed) to specify how your playing dynamics are reflected by the sound produced.
Sophisticated and Elegant Design
While paying homage to the acoustic piano’s traditional form, a new design philosophy elevates the C1 above the bland, rectangular appearance of many digital pianos. The contemporary design features linear legs which accentuate the overall styling of the instrument and, at only 26 cm (10.24")* in depth, the C1 can be placed virtually anywhere. Keeping safety in mind, the cover uses a soft landing mechanism to ensure that it closes gently. The C1 is available in a black, white or brown wood finish to match the décor of your room. (*Excluding the anti-tip hardware)
Both the German Grand Piano and the Japanese Grand Piano sounds realistically recreate the "damper resonance" effect produced by the sympathetic resonance of the strings in an acoustic piano when the damper pedal is held down.
Key-off simulation recreates the sounds produced when the player’s fingers lift off the keys. The damper resonance effect and key-off simulation provide an even greater feeling of realism as you play!
Bluetooth Audio Support
Connect a Bluetooth device such as a smartphone to the C1 Air and enjoy playing the piano along with your stored music or other audio. When you are not playing the piano, you can use the C1 Air as a powerful Bluetooth speaker system.
New Speaker System
The C1 features a specially designed speaker system that delivers the incredibly realistic sounds of the C1 pianos and other instrument voices in superb detail. High-quality speakers are powered by a 25W x 2 amplifier to deliver rich sound with depth and clarity. From rounded bass to brilliant highs, you will experience the nuanced, expressive power of a grand piano in your own home.
30 Instrument Sounds and Studio Effects
The German Grand piano characterized by brilliant highs and rounded bass is one of richness and power. The Japanese Grand piano is characterized by its dynamic sound and is frequently used for a wide range of music genres, from classical to jazz and pop.
The C1 also offers electric piano sounds, organ, clav, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, strings and more, giving you a total of 30 richly expressive sounds. Three high-quality effects are also available: brilliance, reverb, and chorus. Optimal effects are preset for each of the built-in sounds, so all you need to do is select a sound and enjoy.
Equipped with three pedals as standard with half-pedaling feature
The pedals are an essential element of piano performance, and the C1 is equipped with the full complement of three pedals found on a grand piano: damper, soft and sostenuto. The damper and soft pedals also feature half-pedaling for even more detailed expression.
A Variety of Keyboard Layout Options
Simply by pressing one button, you can apply a bass sound to the lower register of the keyboard. Play piano with your right hand and bass with your left to instantly enjoy jazz performance styles. By pressing two of the tone buttons simultaneously, you can easily layer two sounds together. For example, layer piano and strings to play with a rich piano and orchestra combination. There’s also a partner mode that enables you to divide the piano keyboard into two identical sections on left and right, each with their own damper pedal. This is a great way for teacher and pupil to play duets or copy and practice during lessons.
