The Korg SP-280 digital stage piano follows closely in the footsteps of the popular SP-250, providing you with excellent sounds, exceptional feel, and easy portability - all for a price that's too good to pass up. Loaded with over 30 top-notch sounds, you can call up anything from grand pianos and EPs to organs and strings on your SP-280, even layering sounds with ease. An impressive 2 x 22W stereo sound system makes playing at home or small gigs extremely simple, and at a touch under 42 lbs., you'll have no reservations whatsoever about gigging out with your Korg SP-280 digital piano.

Thirty rich, detailed, and expressive sounds onboard

When you start tickling the ivories on your Korg SP-280 keyboard, you're far from limited to acoustic piano sounds. That's because Korg loaded this portable performance piano with a total of 30 wonderfully expressive instruments. Choose from electric pianos, organs, clavs, and more. Not only does the SP-280 provide you with full and realistic sound, it also delivers subtleties such as key release noise, and other ambient incidentals that make each sound come alive.

Powerful full-range stereo speaker system built in

Onstage or in your parlor, the SP-280's onboard stereo sound system delivers all the sound you desire, without the need for an external amplifier. In fact, the SP-280 keyboard's 2 x 22W speaker system is more than powerful enough to hold its own in smaller venues, making it perfect for cafe and bar gigs. And if you need to run to the PA, don't worry, Korg also equipped the SP-280 with standard 1/4" outputs.

Great for gigging, but also for home practice and lessons

One of the wonderful things about the SP-280 is its delightfully lightweight construction. Even with the stand, the SP-280 weighs under 42 lbs., which is impressive for a piano with a naturally weighted hammer-action keybed. In addition to the standard layer mode, the SP-280 also gives you a convenient partner mode, which allows you to split the keybed into two identical parts - perfect for playing with a student or teacher. On top of that, there are two headphone outputs onboard, allowing you to play with a partner, without disturbing the rest of the house.

Korg SP-280 Digital Stage Piano Features:
  • A great feeling and wonderful sounding digital stage piano you can take to any gig
  • Full 88-note Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) keybed provides heavier action in the lower register and lighter action in the high note for super-realistic acoustic piano feel
  • Loaded with 30 extremely realistic instrument sounds, including acoustic pianos, electric pianos, organs, clavs, harpsichord, strings, and more
  • Damper resonance, key release noise, and other details add to the realistic sound
  • Powerful 2 x 22W stereo sound system is perfect for use at home and for small gigs
  • Partner mode keyboard splitting and dual headphone jacks provide great resources for taking or giving piano lessons
  • Lightweight design (only 42 lbs.) is ideal for gigging
Play out with style with a Korg SP-280 digital stage piano!

Great Digital Piano !!!

I love it !!!! The feel of the keys are sick !!! I used to buy all my online gear from Sam Ash but after a few screw ups by them switched toi Sweetwater best change I ever made !!!

Excellent Digitial Piano

unlike the previous reviewer, I am actually a professional and not using this as a midi controller. First of all, it is not a grand piano with "hammer" action. I paid $560 for mine and it is an excellent apartment digital piano for someone that does not want a console.2nd, the speakers are better than any thing else in its price range- forget about 22 watt speakers vs 6 or 8 watt speakers the sound is clear.Piano sample- it sounds natural and pleasant unlike an electronic sounding Casio. Is it Ivory? No? It is very good though.The bottom line is if you are looking for something $500-$600 all in one unit and not a console than consider this.

Korg SP-280

Easy to assemble (by my self) and after a quick read of the manual -played thru the sound options A-ok The overall sound is great for the money--The only addition would be some rhythm beats.

Good, but Rich is right.

Everything has been really said already about this piano, however I'd like to note that the speakers in this model are very nice. It sounds great for $699. The feel of the keys is somewhat sluggish when it comes to very fast repetition. I haven't exactly pinpointed what happens, but you do lose a keystroke somewhere.The touch can be set from 1-3 (1 being "lightest", which is the equivalent of an action with very low resistance). Even set to 3, which is the max, the piano does have a poor mid-range. When I say poor mid-range, I actually mean it's more or less about 4 magnitudes of volume, as opposed to a natural feel of striking a hammer as hard as you can against a string.If you aren't looking to replace a grand piano, this is an excellent entry-level piano, especially compared to buying an acoustic upright. This is probably not the choice for the stage ever..although the included pedal has rubber feet that seem like they might grip a floor, but it's a trick. The stock damper pedal included is just about unusable if you have a heavy foot, as the pedal likes to fly. When the pedal is not flying, it is capable of half-pedaling, which is actually very easy to use.

Excellent bang for the buck keyboard

I've owned several keyboards over the last 30 years from cheap home units to high end Korg synth's. I'm using this as a home keyboard for writing and simple playing pleasure and not for gig's. I'm really pleased with the accurate piano, electric piano, and organ models the SP-280 covers. The keyboard feel is very good, if a slight bit sluggish on key rebound. Overall quality is excellent, especially for the price range. I have demo'ed several Yamaha's in this range but the Korg edges them out with a better keyboard action and more accurate modeling. The SP-280 doesn't have 600+ patches, but it does a superior job on what it has. The on board speakers are surprisingly loud and produce fairly clean, useful tones. Their low end range is a bit weak for an 88 key, but outputting in addition to them into a bass or keyboard amp makes it gig-able.As for the first reviewer's complaints about not having any "decent dynamic control when playing quietly", they should have read the manual. By simply holding the Touch key and pressing the Up value key once, you increase the key sensitivity above default levels dramatically. You just need to remember to do this each time you power up.
