Compact and cost-effective, the KORG B1 Digital Piano is the right choice for all your piano needs. The streamlined design delivers the key features most important to any pianist: an authentic keyboard touch, superior sound, and effortless ease of use. And unlike other pianos that may be stripped-down versions of existing models, the KORG B1 Digital Piano stands alone in its class; designed from the ground up using cutting-edge technologies to exceed all expectations. For those who are just starting and for those who want to start again, we invite you to experience the KORG B1 Digital Piano.

Features:

Innovative Technologies Deliver Full-Range Fidelity and Enhanced Low-End Response

To achieve the deep, rich tones of an acoustic piano within its compact body, the B1 Digital Piano relies on KORGs servo-assisted MFB technology, a pair of full-range speakers, plus a passive radiator. Together, these elements reproduce the rich resonant tones that emanate from the large body of an acoustic piano, with particular attention paid to the low-frequency range. *MFB (Motional Feedback) Technology: The built-in speaker system is equipped with MFB technology. This active servo system controls the movement of the cone, allowing low frequencies to be reproduced with minimal distortion. In use, the movement (velocity) of the speaker cone (vibrational surface) is detected, and a signal that compensates for the mechanical response of the speaker and speaker chamber is returned to the amp (feedback). This Motional Feedback technology allows the system to achieve ideal frequency response, and permits the low-frequency range to be reproduced accurately; any coloration of the sound caused by the speaker enclosure is immediately corrected. This well-regarded technique reinforces the low-end responseparticularly with small speakersand can also help to compensate for the room acoustics.

Eight Expressive and Highly-Detailed Instruments Sounds

As with all digital pianos, the KORG B1 uses sampling technology (multiple digital recordings) to capture and recreate the rich, vibrant tone of an acoustic piano. As sampling technology has continued to improveand as digital memory components have become more abundantthe KORG B1 Digital Piano is able to deliver a more accurate, authentic, and expressive sound than instruments of just a few years ago. In addition to capturing the enormous tonal range of a grand piano, the meticulously-sampled sounds created for the B1 Digital Piano also reproduce the sympathetic string vibrations and damper resonances that give the piano its character. Three flavors of acoustic piano are provided; the B1 Digital Piano also provides two electric pianos, a harpsichord, and two organ soundseach delivered with precise realism. This generous set of frequently-used sounds allows any player to expand their repertoire to cover many musical genres. The dedicated PIANO PLAY button instantly recalls the Concert Grand Piano sound.

NH Keyboard

The B1 Digital Piano is equipped with KORGs NH (Natural Weighted Hammer) keyboard action. This Natural Weighting provides a heavier touch in the lower registers, transitioning to a lighter touch in the upper regionsjust as on a traditional piano. The dynamic response of the keyboard can be set to match the playing style of any performer.

First impressions after recieving this piano: -Did not realize when that there was a mesh fabric over speakers... I am sure over time that will wear out. -The pedal action is awesome, However, the pedal connector is proprietary and flimsy... it too may break over time if keyboard is transported to various places. -Music stand is a bit flimsy, but more functional than most. The feel of the keys is nice, reminds me of some older Roland models perhaps, has good response and control. Not as nice as actual piano action or a Yamaha NU1... BUT The sound is quite good and arguably when put side by side to what I have recorded with an NU1, quite similar. The main piano sound when first turned on is missing some color and life... I suspect this was saved for pricier models, but going to the jazz or ballad piano sound 2 or 3 changes the quality enough to make the instrument extremely fun to play its appearance is simple and no nonsense, great to keep young and old eyes alike focused. It has a powerful sound that can easily fill up a room.

This is a great sounding digital piano with very realistic hammer action keys. The only thing that I wish it had was some string sounds
