The Korg SP-250 brings you the sound and feel of an 88-key piano in a package that's as complete as the real thing. You get a sturdy stand, built-in speakers, music rack, and even an integrated damper pedal right out of the box. Touch a button to access stereo sampled grand piano sound, plus an assortment of classical electric pianos, organs, and more. Whether you're a novice looking for a realistic keyboard to learn on, or a pro who needs a compact rehearsal instrument, the Korg SP-250 will have you up and playing right out of the box.
The Korg SP-250 may just be the most complete digital piano package you can get. A sturdy, robust stand designed specifically for the SP-250 supports your instrument with no fear of wobbling or tipping like a run-of-the-mill X-stand, yet is easily removed and collapsed down for easy travel. Another feature that's optional for most keyboards in this price range (but standard on the SP-250) is the included damper pedal, which attaches securely to the integrated stand, so it won't slide back and forth when you're playing. This high-quality pedal provides realistic acoustic piano damping and "half-pedaling," adding to the expressiveness of this instrument. Along with the built-in, full-range 2 x 11-watt speaker system, you've got a complete digital piano package, ready to play right out of the box. Just add a pair of headphones, and you'll have everything you need for those late-night practice sessions.
Detailed, Realistic Piano Reproduction
With a bass port for extended low frequencies, the SP-250's on-board speakers sport enough power and range to faithfully reproduce Korg's inspiring palette of 30 sounds. Korg's stereo piano samples are longer in length than just about any other keyboard in this class, meaning slow, emotive passages are even more dramatic, full, and authentic, with no audible looping to spoil the atmosphere. The Korg SP-250 also boasts a number of electric pianos, pipe organs, blues organs, harpsichord, clav, choir, strings, mallet percussion and guitar sounds. Layer two sounds together and adjust their levels independently for the perfect blend. Whether you're playing in a worship service, a jazz trio, or at cocktail hour, you'll have the appropriate sound at your disposal. Three levels of reverb and chorus effects add depth and color to your favorite instruments at the touch of a button.
Experience Korg's Third-Generation Weighted Keyboard
Adding to the real-piano experience afforded by the SP-250's realistic piano sound is the RH3 graded hammer-action weighted keyboard, the latest refinement of Korg's "Real Hammer" mechanism. "Graded" means the keys feel heavier in the bass and lighter on the treble end of the keyboard, just as on an acoustic grand piano, where the hammers get thicker and heavier as you move toward the low end of the keyboard. Pianists used to playing on an acoustic instrument will appreciate the quick response and familiar feel of the RH3 keys, while new players will be getting the accurate piano experience they'll need to be comfortable on the real thing later on. Not only are the keys substantial and responsive, but their sensitivity can be adjusted to suit the player.
The Perfect Practice Partner
The Korg SP-250 offers plenty of extras to make practice more efficient, whether you're rehearsing by yourself or with a private instructor. A flexible metronome is on board with an intuitive slider for tempo adjustment. You get two headphone outputs for student and teacher, and a transpose function to accompany a singer in any key, or play along with your favorite songs. There's even standard MIDI I/O jacks so you can use your keyboard with composition and education software, and dual 1/4-inch audio outputs to plug into an amp or PA for live performance. Of course, nothing will improve your playing more than more playing - and nothing will inspire you to play more than a digital piano that sounds and feels as good as the Korg SP-250.

Korg SP-250 88-Key Stage Piano
Korg brings a heightened level of realism and feel to its line of portable stage pianos with their SP-250. It provides an expanded range of expression and performance with an outstanding stereo piano sound, which is matched to a third-generation RH3 graded action keyboard. It's the perfect answer for any pianist looking for rich piano sounds and the convenience of a lightweight, portable instrument.
Superb Piano Sound
The robust sound of a concert grand piano has been carefully and lavishly sampled. Differences in playing dynamics and position in the stereo field have been faithfully captured, delivering naturally expressive piano sounds that recreate every detail. The piano samples are longer than other pianos in its class. Increased length means the piano sound sustains more naturally, so the piano sounds more real throughout the performance, not just at the attack. Three versions of this wonderful piano sound are provided to cover different tastes and genre needs. To round out the piano offerings, the Korg SP-250 also features a vintage electric grand sound, as well as an authentic honky-tonk piano.
A Grand Piano Experience
The SP-250 is the first Korg stage piano to feature the RH3 real weighted hammer action. This state-of-the-art key mechanism features differing key weights in each register of the keyboard, delivering the same playing experience as a grand piano. The keyboard is exceptionally responsive, even when playing quickly repeated figures, to preserve every expressive nuance of the performer. The Key Touch Control provides three selectable touch curves, delivering the perfect touch sensitivity for every playing style or type of song. Yet even with such a robust keyboard, the entire unit weighs less than 42 pounds.
Wide Palette of Sounds
In addition to its remarkable piano sound, the Korg SP-250 includes a rich array of sounds that will extend your performance possibilities. An assortment of classic electric pianos (reed and tine styles), church and jazz organs, string and choir sounds, harpsichord and clav(s), even mallet percussion and guitar sounds are available at the touch of a button. Two sounds can be layered together to play simultaneously; and of course you can adjust the balance to get the perfect blend. To help you audition the sounds 30 demonstration songs ranging from classics to originals are built in, showing off all the sounds in a variety of musical genres.
To further enhance the sound, the Korg SP-250 provides both a Reverb effect that recreates the spaciousness of a concert hall, and a Chorus effect that adds a colorful depth to the sound. The effects settings have been optimized for each individual sound and the user can choose from three levels - Light, Normal and Deep - to complement his or her performance.
Style and Versatility
The chic black design is highlighted by metal and wood-grain accents, with a solid music rack included that mounts in seconds. The control panel is simple and easy-to-use and includes 19 LED indicators for instant visual feedback. The Korg SP-250 is perfect for those who appreciate quality in both sound and design.
Full Range Sound System
The Korg SP-250 contains a custom system featuring two 10 cm dual-cone speakers matched to a pair of 11W amplifiers that beautifully reproduces its rich sounds. The bass-reflex speaker system ensures that every bit of the deep resonances distinctive to a great piano will be heard.
Stand and Pedal Included
The Korg SP-250 includes a high-quality damper pedal that is so important for proper piano performance. It provides the ultimate expressive control thanks to half-pedaling, which is a variable damping effect based on how deep you press the pedal, rather than the simple on/off switch found on cheaper instruments. The dedicated stand is both simple and stylish, and fits securely into a recessed area in the bottom of the piano providing a remarkably solid feel. The stand's lower crossbar even prevents the pedal from 'creeping' forward in performance. Best of all, it can be easily removed from the stand for moving and taking around for live performances.
Two headphones can be connected simultaneously, for student and teacher use or family enjoyment. Thanks to stereo outputs, you can listen to the sounds of the Korg SP-250 through external speakers, great for professional performances, schools and places of worship, and for recording purposes. MIDI In/Out jacks connect to a synthesizer or other MIDI-equipped device (computer/sequencer) allowing it to be used as both a master keyboard and a 16-part multitimbral sound module for performance and composition.
The Key Transpose function lets you shift the pitch of the instrument to match the key of a singer, or to play along with your favorite CDs. An onboard Metronome is convenient for practicing. You can add an accent to the first beat (with normal or bell sounds), and adjust its volume. There's also a dedicated slider for easy adjustment of the tempo.
In addition to equal temperament, the Korg SP-250 provides the two most common Baroque and Classical era tunings (Kirnberger and Werckmeister) for historically-accurate performances.
