SP-170: Simple Design, Beautiful Performance
By Laura B. Whitmore
Even if you already own an acoustic piano, the SP-170 Stage Piano is a perfect instrument to have in your home! Consider the benefits of a digital piano – portability, no tuning requirements, multiple sounds to choose from, and you can practice in silence without disturbing the family or neighbors. This compact, great feeling instrument combines a vibrant, rich acoustic piano sound with a wonderful feeling touch so that you can practice and perform on a quality instrument at home.
Perfect for students just starting out, the SP-170 features Korg’s new 88-key Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) keybed, delivering the true feel and response of an acoustic piano while weighing significantly less than other models. This makes the SP-170 the most portable piano Korg has ever offered! The SP-170 fits great in a dorm room, bedroom, apartment, or in any room of the house.
The SP-170 takes advantage of Korg’s advanced sound sampling expertise to provide a quality piano playing experience. Two different piano sounds offer multiple velocity layers to capture the nuances of your playing dynamics, so that the SP-170 responds expressively to every touch.
Loaded with ten sounds, the SP-170’s soundset also includes electric pianos, harpsichord, and organs to cover a wide variety of musical styles. Chorus and Reverb effects help to add polish and dimension to your playing experience. Sounds are accessed through a unique control that uses the piano keys to select the sound you desire, so that the SP-170’s face remains sleek and uncluttered. Its clean lines and minimalistic style will fit into any décor, and it even comes in both chic black and elegant white, with optional matching stands, so you can choose the model that suits your taste.
With two headphone outputs, student and teacher can share lessons without disturbing – or being disturbed by – other family members. But when you want the world to hear what you’re working on, the SP-170 doesn’t disappoint. Its complete stereo amplifier and speakers are mounted into a bass-reflex for full, robust sound.
Ready to play for a larger audience? Connect your SP-170 to exterior amplification for performing on stage or in ensembles. Use the same output to connect your SP-170 to a recorder to capture your performance with ease. The SP-170 is lightweight and easy to move around, so you can perform wherever you like!
