     Housed in a sleek, curvaceous body, Korg's SV-1BK offers an elegant on-stage appearance. Coupled with retro-style controls and smooth black finish, the SV-1BK is extremely stylish – and wonderful to play! An optional collapsible black stand is available, along with a gig-ready rolling soft case.

    The SV-1BK contains not just one, but multiple piano sounds, including a Japanese Grand Piano, a German Grand Piano, an authentic upright, and more. Then there is the Vintage. The SV-1BK Stage Vintage Piano offers the most rewarding compendium of electro-mechanical, transistorized, tape-driven, analog, and early digital keyboards ever available in a single instrument. Crafted using Korg's RX (Real eXperience) Technology; each sound is a detailed and authentic re-creation, accurately capturing the full range of expression and dynamics of the original. But for Korg, even that is not enough. The SV-1BK also provides access to the effect pedals, amplifiers, speaker cabinets and studio techniques that gave these sounds their original shine. Together, they provide fingertip access to the sounds that defined generations of popular keyboard playing.

    The superb sound generation of the SV-1BK is further enhanced with the inclusion of six separate stages of signal processing, all bypass-able.

    • EQUALIZER (Bass, Middle, and Treble) Controllable from the front panel,the EQ allows you to shape the tonal quality of your sound in real-time.

    • PRE FX (Compression, Boost, U-Vibe, Chorus/Vibrato, Tremolo, Wah) Thissection provides the essential effects for pre-treating your sound or adding some vintage vibe, with some classic effects modeled by Korg’s legendary guitar effects designers. Add a sweep pedal (i.e. Korg's EXP-2 or XVP-10) toget funky with the Wah.

    • AMP MODEL (Amp Modeling, Cabinet Simulation, and Noise Reduction) Awealth of amp heads and speaker cabinets are available to add color, drive andedge to your sound. Plus, Korg’s exclusive Valve Reactor circuitry adds the warmth or snarl that only a real tube can provide.

    • MODULATION FX (Chorus 1 & 2, Phaser 1 & 2, Flanger, and Rotary) Some of the most famous stomp-box pedals have been recreated to give you the signature sounds for these legendary timbres. Korg’s rotary speaker emulation has long been acclaimed as one of the best, faithfully adding nuance and motion to any organ sound.

    • REVERB/DELAY (Room, Plate, Hall, Spring, Tape Echo, and Stereo Delay) Four types of reverb are provided, along with a classic tape-echo,plus a tempo-based digital delay – complete with a tap tempo switch.

    • LIMITER This final step in the chain ensures your level remains balanced across all sounds, and is adjustable only via the included computer editor/librarian software.
