Korg D1 Digital Piano
Complete with power adapter manual & music rest
About This Keyboard
This D1 is in very good working order but has a couple of cosmetic issues that show up better in the video than the photos. The top C key was replaced with a regular C key so there is a small gap that has no effect on the playability of the key. There are scuffs and scratches mostly confined to the left end cap along with a mark on the front bar under the keys.
Piano To Go
If you're a pianist on the go, Sweetwater would like to introduce you to an 88-key weighted hammer-action digital piano that you can take from home to rehearsals to the stage with a minimum of fuss. The Korg D1 features Korg's high-quality RH3 keybed, which delivers a fine-tuned playing feel. And whether you play jazz, rock, or classical, you'll appreciate the D1's 30 richly expressive sounds, which have you covered for any gig or musical genre. Sampled at four different velocities, the hyper-realistic acoustic grand pianos work hand-in-hand with the D1's RH3 action to transmit every dynamic nuance of your playing, complete with damper resonance and key-off. The D1's vintage-inspired electric pianos are wonderfully responsive to your touch, as are the onboard organ, clavinet, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, and string sounds. The D1's outstanding portability is a big selling point. Weighing only 35.27 pounds, its sleek, compact, solid wood chassis lets you easily slide it into a gig bag and be on your way. The Korg D1: don't leave home without it.
High-quality onboard sounds and effects
Featuring a sound bank with 30 high-quality, expressive sounds arranged into three banks of 10, the Korg D1 digital piano's onboard sounds include five acoustic pianos, an electric grand, six meticulously modeled vintage electric pianos, harpsichord, two clavinets, marimba, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, three jazz organs, three pipe organs, three lush string patches, and three gorgeous choirs. To enhance and customize your sounds to taste, the D1 offers three effects — brilliance, reverb, and chorus.
Enjoy satisfying, realistic piano feel
Korg's D1 closely replicates the playing feel of a fine acoustic piano by switching between four samples according to your playing dynamics. From subtle nuances to robust crescendos, the D1 transmits all the expression in your playing — including the key-off and damper resonance that occurs when you hold down the sustain pedal of an acoustic piano. And speaking of sustain, the D1 supports half-damper pedaling with compatible pedals. It's this attention to sonic detail that makes the D1 so rewarding to play.
Realistic acoustic piano playing experience
The D1 features a Korg's superb weighted hammer-action 3 (RH3) keybed that reproduces the touch of a grand piano, in which the low notes feel heavier and the action becomes progressively lighter as you move up the keyboard. Another realism-enhancing feature of the D1's Concert Piano and Grand Piano sounds is damper resonance that simulates the spacious resonance produced by sympathetic string vibration when the damper pedal of an acoustic piano is held down. The D1 also features key-off simulation — the decay of the sound when you take your finger off a key. Key-off also factors into the way in which your playing technique affects the string resonance, naturally responding to staccato or legato to further enhance the expressiveness of your performances.
Smart functions enhance your playing experience
Korg equipped the D1 with convenient features that make it a pleasure to play. To play two sounds together — for instance, piano and strings — switch on Layer Mode intuitively by pressing two sound buttons simultaneously. The metronome can be turned on/off at a touch. Touch Control functionality lets you choose between five settings (light, standard, heavy, stable, or fixed) to specify how the sounds respond to your playing dynamics. To enhance and customize your sounds to taste, the D1 offers three studio-grade effects — brilliance, reverb, and chorus. The optimum effect for each sound is already specified as a preset, so you can simply select a sound and concentrate on playing it — confident it will sound great.
Ready to roll
The Korg D1 gives you the connectivity you'll need on stage. The 1/4" Line Out jacks can be connected directly to the PA or recording gear. With its compactness and light weight, D1 also makes an ideal run-and-gun MIDI controller keyboard for external gear and your software instruments; MIDI In/Out DIN connectors are provided for connection to sound modules or to your computer via a MIDI interface. The D1 ships with a detachable music rest and a compact damper pedal for easy portability.

It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard it may not operate or look exactly like a new one. Used keyboards develop wear over time that can cause such items as function buttons, knobs, sliders etc. to fail to operate as smoothly or easily as when they were new. Our technician does check these items and if they are deemed unusable they are replaced but some function buttons may require more pressure or manipulation to make the appropriate changes. Cosmetically your used keyboard may have scuffs, scratches, cracks to plastic pieces, discolored keys or other visual impairments that might not show up in the photos. We try to mention any obvious visual imperfections but may not consider them serious enough to post in the listing.
