The black SV-1 88-Key Vintage Stage Piano by Korg comes packed with some of the industry's most in-demand vintage keyboard and piano sounds sought after by the world's top performing and studio musicians. The acoustic pianos include three-way stereo versions of legendary German and Japanese grand pianos, an intimate upright along with an essential mono piano for those smaller gigs, a late 70s/mid 80s Japanese electro-acoustic variation, plus a few layered piano sounds.

    Korg SV-1 reviews

    SV-1 88-Key Vintage Stage Piano (Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is nice. I bought this to use as a nice-feeling and nice-looking midi controller for MainStage. The keys feel nice, but the buttons feel a little cheap. Also, I'm not convinced that the 12AX7 tube serves a purpose. It may not even be in active circuitry, which is really lame. Please correct me if I'm wrong about the tube.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I tried a Korg SV-1 88 and also a SV-1 73 Terrible piano sounds, awful organ sounds, good electric piano sounds. Action much too heavy.  The 88 weighs a ton. The 73 isnt much better. Both are much too heavy to lug around from gig to gig. I love the design of it, and the ease of use, but I ended up selling both of them.
