The streamlined design delivers the key features most important to any pianist: an authentic keyboard touch, superior sound, and effortless ease of use. And unlike other pianos that may be stripped-down versions of existing models, the KORG B1 Digital Piano stands alone in its class; designed from the ground up using cutting-edge technologies to exceed all expectations.
To achieve the deep, rich tones of an acoustic piano within its compact body, the B1 Digital Piano relies on KORG’s servo-assisted MFB technology, a pair of full-range speakers, plus a passive radiator. Together, these elements reproduce the rich resonant tones that emanate from the large body of an acoustic piano, with particular attention paid to the low-frequency range.
As with all digital pianos, the KORG B1 uses sampling technology (multiple digital recordings) to capture and recreate the rich, vibrant tone of an acoustic piano. As sampling technology has continued to improve—and as digital memory components have become more abundant—the KORG B1 Digital Piano is able to deliver a more accurate, authentic, and expressive sound than instruments of just a few years ago.
In addition to capturing the enormous tonal range of a grand piano, the meticulously-sampled sounds created for the B1 Digital Piano also reproduce the sympathetic string vibrations and damper resonances that give the piano its character. Three flavors of acoustic piano are provided; the B1 Digital Piano also provides two electric pianos, a harpsichord, and two organ sounds—each delivered with precise realism. This generous set of frequently-used sounds allows any player to expand their repertoire to cover many musical genres. The dedicated PIANO PLAY button instantly recalls the Concert Grand Piano sound.
NH Keyboard The B1 Digital Piano is equipped with KORG’s NH (Natural Weighted Hammer) keyboard action. This Natural Weighting provides a heavier touch in the lower registers, transitioning to a lighter touch in the upper regions—just as on a traditional piano. The dynamic response of the keyboard can be set to match the playing style of any performer.
By activating the Partner Mode, the keyboard is effectively split into two side-by-side keyboards—each pitched in the same range. This allows the student and teacher (or parent and child) to play the same passages at the same time—the perfect way to learn a difficult lesson. In a classroom setting, two students can share a single instrument.
Improved Music Rest
The music rest of the B1 Digital Piano features a page retention pocket that keeps music pages and folios from turning unexpectedly during performance—printed music up to 10 mm (approx.) in thickness can be accommodated. This thoughtful addition allows you to concentrate on your playing.
Rugged Damper Pedal
The metal damper (sustain) pedal provided with the B1 Digital Piano provides a reassuring stability and a great feel underfoot. While the single damper pedal is ideal for many pianists and performers, an optional three-pedal unit (PU-2: separately sold accessory) is available for the piano purist.
