Korg kicks off with D1
Korg will be unveiling its stylish new, Japanese-made, D1 piano at next week’s NAMM show in Anaheim. Offering what the maker says is ‘The playing feel of a grand piano, on stage or in your room’, the D1 is a speaker-less slim piano designed for daily practice or performing live.
Korg says for players interested not only in classical, but also jazz, rock, or funk, the convenience of being able to play in a practice room plus the mobility to take the D1 anywhere is key. On top of that, a carefully fine-tuned playing feel is crucial. ‘The D1 is a piano that delivers on all counts for pianists and keyboardists of any genre’.
The D1 is focused on providing the ultimate in slim, compact design. The maker says it reproduces the playing feel of a grand piano, with a real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keybed developed by Korg and 30 sounds. A dedicated soft case for easy transport will also be available.
- Japanese-made high-quality RH3 keybed.
- A compact body that you can take anywhere.
- Thirty high-quality sounds.
- Cutting-edge technology faithfully reproduces the resonances of a grand piano.
- Convenient functions that you expect from a digital piano.
- In addition to standard-sized LINE OUT jacks, MIDI IN/OUT connectors are also provided.
- Music rest and dedicated pedal for stage play also included.
Available in May the Korg D1 is expected to sell for around circa £620.00 SSP inc VAT,
