Korg C1 Digital Piano (Black)
The Korg C1 Digital Piano is a truly exceptional digital piano. With Korg’s unique history of musical instrument design and audio technology, the C1 offers levels of playability and versatility that will exceed the expectations of the most demanding pianist. From the very first note, the depth and clarity of sound that the C1 delivers from its compact, slim-line cabinet will astound both player and audience alike. The precisely-engineered keyboard provides a feel and response that has been designed to help the student develop a sound playing technique while responding fully to the demands of the more advanced player.
First and foremost, the Korg C1 is a superb piano, both as an exciting alternative to an acoustic instrument or in locations where a traditional instrument could not be used. It never needs tuning and can be used with headphones to avoid disturbing others. Furthermore, a variety of additional features will inspire new levels of creativity in players of all abilities and enhance their enjoyment of music, including 30 superbly realistic instrument sounds, Bluetooth audio streaming, and onboard recording. Designed and manufactured in Japan, the Korg C1 redefines the digital piano.
The Korg C1 digital piano features a Real Weighted Hammer Action (RH3) keyboard that divides the hammers into four different weights, with a heavier feel in the low register and a lighter feel in the high register as found on concert grand pianos. The entire process of making the C1, from making this keyboard to assembling the complete instrument, is carried out in Miyama-cho, Nantan-shi, located in the Nantan region at the center of Kyoto prefecture that is one of Japan's most famous tourism spots, noted for its preservation of numerous historic houses.
RH3 Keyboard Provides a Great-Feeling Playing Experience
The C1 features the real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keyboard that accurately simulates the playing experience of a grand piano, with a heavier playing feel in the lower register that becomes lighter as you move up the keyboard. It is extremely responsive, even when notes are repeated quickly, while the performer’s expressive dynamics are faithfully interpreted even in the most complex passages. Key touch control is also provided, with a choice of five levels of sensitivity (light, normal, heavy, stable, fixed) to specify how your playing dynamics are reflected by the sound produced.
Sophisticated and Elegant Design
While paying homage to the acoustic piano’s traditional form, a new design philosophy elevates the C1 above many digital pianos' bland, rectangular appearance. The contemporary design features linear legs which accentuate the overall styling of the instrument and, at only 26 cm (10.24-inch) in depth, the C1 can be placed virtually anywhere. Keeping safety in mind, the cover uses a soft landing mechanism to ensure that it closes gently. The C1 is available in a black, white, or brown wood finish to match the décor of your room. (Excluding the anti-tip hardware)
Tradition and Technology in Harmony Create a Concert Grand Piano Virtually Anywhere
The sound of a piano changes significantly depending on how it is played. To provide this high level of expressive power from a digital piano, professional pianists selected two concert grand pianos, regulated and tuned by master technicians, and sampled by Korg engineers. This complex process enables the C1 to simulate the experience of playing either a German grand or a Japanese grand and was chosen to reflect a broad musical spectrum providing faithful recreations of dark, subtle, and intense classical music through bright and powerful jazz and pop music. The C1 gives you a natural and satisfying grand piano performance at home, on stage, or in the studio.
Both the German Grand Piano and the Japanese Grand Piano sounds realistically recreate the ‘damper resonance’ effect produced by the sympathetic resonance of the strings in an acoustic piano when the damper pedal is held down.
Key-off simulation recreates the sounds produced when the player’s fingers lift off the keys. The damper resonance effect and key-off simulation provide an even greater feeling of realism as you play.
Enjoy 30 High-Quality Instruments Sounds and Studio Effects
The German Grand piano characterized by brilliant highs and rounded bass is one of richness and power. The Japanese Grand piano is characterized by its dynamic sound and is frequently used for a wide range of music genres, from classical to jazz and pop. In addition to a choice of these acoustic piano sounds, the C1 also offers electric piano sounds, organ, clav, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, strings, and more, giving you a total of 30 richly expressive sounds. Three high-quality effects are also available: brilliance, reverb, and chorus. Optimal effects are preset for each of the built-in sounds, so all you need to do is select a sound and enjoy playing immediately with the ideal settings.
Stereo Sound Optimizer Gives Presence to the Sound When the Headphones are Used
This gives presence to the sound that is reproduced as if playing an acoustic piano, even when headphones are used. You can experience comfort even with a long performance.
New Speaker System Delivers High Output and Great Sound
The C1 features a specially designed speaker system that delivers the incredibly realistic sounds of the C1 pianos and other instrument voices in superb detail.
