Premium-quality Digital Piano!
Ah, the search for the best sampled grand piano goes on. Each time we think we've found it, along comes something new. And the "something new" here is Korg's SP-250 Digital Grand, with its third generation 88-note RH3 real weighted, graded hammer action keybed. Combined with the brand new, velocity-switched, multi-strike sampled grand piano, you get the feel and sound of an authentic concert grand at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. But the piano is only the star. Featured players that just might walk off with the Oscar for "Best Supporting Instrument" include a total of 12 acoustic and electric pianos plus jazz and church organs, mallet instruments, harpsichord, clavinet, choir, strings and guitar. Naturally, you get lifelike reverb and lush chorus effects at the touch of a button, a sleek, intuitive control panel with LED indicators and a built-in sound system. Oh, and did we mention the elegant black finish with steel and wood grain accents?Korg SP-250 Digital Grand Piano Features at a Glance:

A total of 30 sounds including a new, lifelike grand piano
Since this is primarily a digital grand, the piano sound better be awesome, right? Well, it is, thanks to an all new, PCM sampled grand with velocity switched, multi-strike stereo samples, each of which is longer than any piano in its class (and longer means more realistic). The total number of sounds on the Korg SP-250 is 30, which includes 12 acoustic and electric pianos plus jazz and church organs, mallet instruments, harpsichord, clavinet, choir, strings and guitar. Equipped with MIDI in and out, the SP-250 can control other modules or can be used as a 16-part multi-timbral sound source.
Full 88-note keyboard with weighted, hammer action keybed
Real piano sound is great, but for a "total experience" you need a real piano feel. Here's where Korg's third generation 88-note RH3 real weighted, graded hammer action keybed comes into play. It's got the feel of a real grand, even when playing fast, repeated notes or trills. Three dynamic touch curves let you custom tailor the keyboard response to any player's style or preference. A special damper-style pedal allows for half-pedaling realism, a feature many other digital grands lack.
Elegant black finish with steel and woodgrain highlights
Okay, it sounds and feels great. But what about looks? You don't want some ugly plastic monster in your living room or conservatory. Not to worry! The Korg SP-250 looks as good as it sounds with an elegant black finish with attractive steel and woodgrain accents. No matter where you put it, it'll look terrific. Yet for all its good looks, it's surprisingly light weight, which means you can move it when you want or need to (perfect for those spur-of-the-moment redecorators).
Stand and pedal included
The SP-250 includes a high-quality damper pedal that is so important 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 moving and taking around for live performances.
Built-in stereo sound system with adjustable reverb and chorus
Okay, we've gotten this far, so why skimp on a cheap, cheesy sound system? The answer is simple: Korg didn't. The SP-250 comes with a specially designed stereo sound system with an optimized bass-reflex enclosure that delivers the best sound in its class. From full, rich bass response to light, airy treble and everything in between, this system delivers on the promise of excellent sound quality. Naturally, that includes a lifelike reverb so your living room can sound like a concert hall, plus lush chorus effects that add just the right amount of harmonic motion to your favorite onboard sounds.
Sleek, intuitive control panel with LED indicators
Designed to be hugely user-friendly, the Korg SP-250 has a sleek, intuitive control panel that features brilliant LED indicators that provide instant visual feedback to the player. Now add a music stand, onboard metronome, dual headphone outputs and even an auxiliary audio output in case you just happen to want to connect the SP-250 to your brand new home theater system (cue wild applause). The only thing Korg didn't add was instant talent, but with a digital grand this good, you'll quickly find yourself learning new techniques or even writing a few pieces of new music. Yeah, it's that good.
