Overview

The Korg SP-250 Portable Digital Piano features an outstanding stereo piano sound matched to a third-generation, RH3 graded-action keyboard. The SP-250 Digital Piano is the perfect answer for any pianist looking for rich piano sounds and the convenience of a lightweight, portable instrument.

Superb Piano Sound
The robust sound of a concert grand piano has been carefully sampled for this Korg digital 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 Korg 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. 3 versions of this piano sound are provided to cover different tastes and genre needs. The Korg SP-250 keyboard 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 Korg digital piano to feature the all new RH3 real weighted hammer action. This state-of-the-art 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
The 88-key Korg keyboard 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), even mallet percussion and guitar sounds are 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. 30 demonstration songs ranging from classics to originals are built in, 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 black 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 for instant visual feedback.

Full Range Sound System
The SP-250 piano keyboard contains a custom system featuring two 10cm dual-cone speakers matched to a pair of 11W amplifiers that beautifully reproduces its rich sounds. 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
The SP-250 includes a high-quality damper pedal that is an integral element to 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 less-expensive 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.

Convenient Features
Two sets of headphones can be connected simultaneously, for student and teacher use or family enjoyment. Thanks to stereo outputs, you can listen to the sounds of the Korg SP-250 through external speakers, great for professional performances, schools and places of worship, and for recording purposes. MIDI In/Out jacks connect the SP-250 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 Korg SP-250 provides the two most common Baroque and Classical era tunings (Kirnberger and Werckmeister) for historically-accurate performances.

Uneven Acoustic Piano tone

By John Lewis

from Southgate, MI

Comments about Korg SP-250 88-Key Portable Digital Piano:

After playing the Korg SP250 in several GC stores over the course of a couple of months, I purchased it. What really impressed me (and was my subsequent downfall) was how the piano sounded through quality of the onboard speakers. Fine speakers on a digital piano. That's what sold/fooled me. Listening within the confines of the GC keyboard area masked the uneven sampling which lie underneath. Once I got the piano home, and starting using external amplification (and later headphones), the breaks in the sampling became glaringly apparent. About every five notes the tone would change, rather dramatically, as if taken from different brands of acoustic pianos and at slightly different volume levels. If this were a real acoustic piano, I'd have to get my technician 'voice' it. That's not suppose to be necessary for a digital piano. The breaks in sampling are not as noticable when listening through the onboard speakers--hence my unwitting purchase. Patching through anything else, especially headphones, is really a disappointing experience and since I planned on using this at gigs, I'm very disappointed. Aside from the uneven samples (mostly confined to the acoustic pianos) there are some solid features to note. The keys have an authentic piano feel and are very quiet under normal pressure -- mics won't pick up any 'clunking' when recording or playing at quiet venues. The electric pianos are excellent, with the standard vintage Rhodes/Wurlitzer variations represented. Strings are nice. The clavs are Wonder-ful. So its not a total loss. But I bought it for the acoustic piano--which turned out to be less than what I thought it was. Because of the acoustic piano quality, I'd really prefer to take this piano back to GC and get something else, maybe a Yamaha CP33, but returning it is a 15% restocking fee, which is just too much to waste on a return. Word to the wise: Use headphones and take your time choosing your instrument.

I'm so happy with this purchase!

By Jack

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Korg SP-250 88-Key Portable Digital Piano:

I'm a professional jazz double bassist who wanted a piano for composing and arranging. I had a Korg M1 a long time ago, and liked the piano sounds on that, and thought I should give the SP-250 a try. I got a great deal and wound up taking it home after hearing and playing it. Folks, let me tell you.. I couldn't be happier. Since I bought it, I'm at the piano more than I am the bass. It feels and looks so good, and all of the sounds are awesome. I'd have no problem bringing this to a gig, if the pianist I hire needed it! The stand is solid, and the fact that this comes complete makes me very happy with my choice. Before you jump at Yamaha just because everyone else does, I urge you to give this a try! By the way, they did not have this set up on the floor when I went there. I told them I looked on line and saw they had it in stock, and they had to bring it out of the stock room and set it up for me. (My guess is, they're more eager to sell Casios. (DON'T DO IT!) Try this piano out. I think you'll love it.

korg sp - 250 88key digital piano

By Simon

from el paso, tx

Comments about Korg SP-250 88-Key Portable Digital Piano:

I give it a great rating. I was looking for a digital piano that I could depend on as far as trusting the quality. Wanted a Piano-like digital piano that would feel like a real piano without having to pay all that money for it. This piano feels like a real piano when you press the keys, when it plays it sounds great like a real acoustic piano. The other sounds are great. Other than the piano sound, the electric piano 1 sounds great and realistic. The chorus and stinges are great. It could have had a different type of chorus and strings out of the 3, but overall they sound good. The reason why I didn't give it a 5 is because it still needs some improvement on the Volume of sound it gives out from its internal speakers. It sounds loud but not loud enough when its all the way up. I still need to test out the back stereo outputs. Also the reverb and chorus buttons wasn't too fund about them cause it doesn't really make a great difference on the sound. And one more thing is that I think for being a korg and an instrument of this capacity and quality it should have or should be added later on an expansion card so it can grow and not stay a "baby" cause it's like a giant digital piano trapped inside a baby piano. Korg should just let it have the capacity to expand a little bit more. Overall it's a great digital piano for anybody, not just experienced musicians.

Enjoy playing it so much--it's not a chore to practise!

By R.M. Gillis

from Central TX

Comments about Korg SP-250 88-Key Portable Digital Piano:

I really love the Korg and am glad I went the extra expense to get this machine. I really like the sound. It is a bit heavy for this 60 year old to haul around to church and back, etc. But the difference in my playing has improved greatly. I like the feel, the voice choices. I still have a bit to explore on this new instrument. I've been told by professional musicians whom I colaborated with that I DID make the right choice and that this instrument will last me a long time. I wish I would've had the instrument 20 years ago when I was at least with a good piano teacher instead of trying to teach myself.
