    Korg C1 Air - Overview

    The Korg C1 Air is a great designer piano offering a sound comparable to digital pianos significantly more expensive.. 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 most pianists. From the very first note it's clear that this isn't a budget piano, 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 RH3 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.

    Why choose a Korg C1 Air

    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 Korg quality sounds, Bluetooth audio streaming and on-board recording. Designed and manufactured in Japan gives you confidence that this is a quality instrument

    The Korg C1 Air has a top-of-the-range piano action

    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. The RH3 action is tried and tested of many of Korg's top of the range stage pianos and gets the approval of some pretty iconic players. 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.

    The Korg C1 Air is a big piano with minimalistic styling

    While paying homage to the acoustic piano's traditional form, a new design philosophy elevates the C1 above the bland, rectangular appearance of many digital pianos. The contemporary design features linear legs which accentuate the overall styling of the instrument and, at only 26 cm (10.24")* 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, white ash or brown wood finish to match the decor of your room. (*Excluding the anti-tip hardware) The slimline design doesn't detract at all from the sound, simply because Korg have designed the speaker system in a seperate acoustic box. In our experiance this method allows a much bigger warmer sound than housing the speaker within the top cabinet.

    The Korg C1 Air has the best of both worlds - German and Japanese quality

    The sound of a piano changes significantly depending on how it is played. In order to provide this high level of expressive power from a digital piano, two concert grand pianos were selected by professional pianists, 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 were chosen to reflect a broad musical spectrum providing faithful recreations of dark, subtle and intense classical music through to bright and powerful jazz and pop music. The C1 gives you 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!

    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.

    The Korg C1 Air also features bluetooth!

    Connect a Bluetooth device such as a smartphone to the C1 Air and enjoy playing the piano along with your stored music or other audio. When you are not playing the piano, you can use the C1 Air as a powerful Bluetooth speaker system.

    The Korg C1 Air features a dedicated tuned speaker box

    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. High-quality speakers are powered by a 25W x 2 amplifier to deliver rich sound with depth and clarity. From rounded bass to brilliant highs, you will experience the nuanced, expressive power of a grand piano in your own home. At this price point it is rare to find a digital piano using the seperate wooden enclosure. The result is significant as the box is tuned to the speakers and the sounds they are expected to produce. When placed in the upper cabinet tuning is almost impossible because of all the other componants affecting the sound.

    We love the Korg C1 Air feel free to call in anytime to hear this quality piano.
