With unparalleled sound and a beautifully expressive playing experience, the G1 sets a new standard for the digital piano.
The breathtakingly detailed sound and dynamic feel of the G1 provides the pianist with every possible shade of musical expression. Based on decades of ground breaking piano sound technology from KORG, makers of the award-winning KRONOS, and a precisely engineered keyboard that responds perfectly from gentle pianissimo to powerful fortissimo, KORG have created a unique digital piano. The technology of the G1 is so advanced you can even see it; the beautifully crafted slim-line cabinet of the G1 is a result of KORG’s unique history of musical instrument design and audio technology. Finally, there is no compromise between superb sound and impeccable design. Creating an immersive sound experience from a digital piano as compact and stylish as the G1 is a truly remarkable achievement. When you see it, touch it, and hear it, the KORG G1 will change your perception of digital pianos forever.
The G1 is Korg’s flagship digital piano in its concert series, now available in a new color “White Ash” that features a welcoming woodgrain finish. The tasteful texture blends naturally with other furniture, lighting up the whole room to match its beautiful sound. Enjoy a high-end finish to match a high-end playing experience.
Multiple Sound Samples for Outstanding Realism
In order to achieve a sound that is as close as possible to that of an acoustic instrument, the three main pianos in the G1 analyze performances dynamics to seamlessly select between different sets of piano samples. From a delicate pianissimo to a powerful fortissimo, the player’s expression is realistically reflected in the sound.
The three concert grand pianos in the G1 realistically recreate the “damper resonance” effect that is produced by the sympathetic resonance of the strings in an acoustic piano when the damper pedal is held down (features on the GP1/2, AP1/2, and JP1/2).
On an acoustic piano, strings will resonate in sympathy as notes of corresponding pitches are played when the damper is lifted. String Resonance is an essential characteristic of the overall sound of an acoustic piano and so the Resonance technology developed for the KRONOS piano sound engine features in the three concert grand pianos in the G1.
Key-off simulation recreates the sounds that are produced when the player’s fingers lift off the keys.
Connect a Bluetooth device such as a smartphone to the G1 Air and enjoy playing the piano along with your stored music or other audio. When you’re not playing the piano, you can use the G1 Air as a powerful Bluetooth speaker system.
While paying homage to the acoustic piano’s traditional form, a new design philosophy elevates the G1 above the bland, rectangular appearance of many digital pianos. The back panel added in the latest model enhances the sense of quality and the overall rigidity of the unit, and also provides privacy from the front. The contemporary design features distinctive softly curved legs which accentuate the overall styling of the instrument and, at only 29 cm (11.42″)* in depth, the G1 can be placed virtually anywhere. The keyboard is protected by a soft-fall key cover that forms a full-width music rest when opened, while your sheet music is held in position by a shaped retaining channel. The G1 is available in black, white or brown to match the décor of your room. (*Excluding the anti-tip hardware)
The G1 features the real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keyboard which accurately simulates the playing experience of a grand piano, with a heavier playing feel in the lower register that becomes lighter as you move up the keyboard. It is extremely responsive, even when notes are repeated quickly, while the performer’s expressive dynamics are faithfully interpreted even in the most complex passages. 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.
