Korg SV-1 - Wow!

The extremely cool Korg SV-1 has arrived in an 88 key model.  The keyboard action feels awesome, the sounds are unbelievable and the interface is absolutely a breeze because it is analog.  (No deep menus to navigate.  It's all switches and knobs.

The acoustic piano sounds are terrific and some of the best we've ever heard.  But the electric piano sounds are over the top.  Why?  Because the SV-1 has a vacuum tube (that would be "valve" for you British folks) that helps the SV-1  absolutely "nail" vintage EP sounds.  Whether you are a piano student, home studio enthusiastist or gigging pro, the SV-1 is a wonderful digital piano that will fit all your needs.  Here a few videos to check out.

Home Digital Pianos by Roland

Roland RP-201 Digital Pianos are now in stock!

The Roland RP-201 is a handsome instrument in satin black or rosewood with gorgeous grand piano sound.  The RP-201 is based on Roland’s acclaimed 88-key stereo multi-sampling, in which the distinctive acoustic properties of each grand-piano key have been faithfully captured. Together with its 128 polyphonic voices, the RP-201’s piano engine performs like a true grand. No matter how fast you play or how much sustain pedal you apply, you needn’t worry about note drop-outs.

 Plus, resonance-behavior modeling for string, damper, and key-off makes the RP-201 all the more natural and realistic. Your pedal positions are detected smoothly, letting you constantly vary the tone by changing pedal depth just like an acoustic grand piano.


With its Progressive Hammer-Action keyboard, the RP-201 has a natural key touch that reproduces the feel and response of an acoustic grand piano. Lower keys are more heavily weighted; as you move up the keyboard, the key weight becomes progressively lighter.

The RP-201 has terrific features for both teachers and students.  A Twin Piano mode splits the keyboard into two identical zones, letting two people sit side by side and play in the same range, with an onboard metronome and recorder.
