When choosing a home piano, there are many factors to consider, and for many people, a digital piano is the best answer. In terms of available space, price and forseeable maintenance, digital has its distinct advantages. Once you've decided to go with a digital piano, then it becomes a question of what brand and what model to choose. The Korg LP-180 merits your consideration.
There are several crucial points in choosing a digital piano, such as the design, for instance. The slim, stylish body of the LP-180 comes in your choice of black or white, ensuring that it will fit unobtrusively into your room layout and decor. Another crucial point which has not been overlooked is the sound. KORG is internationally famous as a manufacturer of studio quality synthesizers and keyboards, and its acclaimed grand piano sounds are built into the LP-180. It goes without saying that all of the basics, including the keyboard, pedals, playing feel, and sound, are just as solid as you would expect from KORG with its more than fifty years of experience as a manufacturer of electronic instruments.
Natural Weighted Hammer Action
Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) keyboard is accurately weighted like a traditional piano, with a heavier touch in the lower ranges and becoming progressively lighter in the higher registers. Three levels of Key Touch Control allow the keyboard response to be matched to nearly any playing style, preserving all of the subtle expression of the original performance.
Ten high-quality sounds, plus Reverb and Chorus
Ten different expressive and high-quality sounds are built in, including piano, electric piano, vibraphone, pipe organ, and strings. There's also a reverb effect that adds reverberation and depth to the sound, and a chorus effect that gives the sound a spacious feel for enjoyable playing.
Indispensible three-pedal unit
The pedals are indispensable for piano performance, and the LP-180 comes standard with the same three-pedal unit as an acoustic piano: damper, soft, and sostenuto. The damper and soft pedals also support half-pedal operation, allowing you to express the nuances that are important when practicing classical piano. Since there are two headphone jacks, you'll be able to enjoy lessons at any time.
