The Korg LP350BK digital piano is a sleek, slim instrument with natural keyboard action and a good selection of premium keyboard sounds.
The LP350BK features Korg’s finest digital piano keyboard, the RH3 Graded Hammer action keyboard. The weighted keys and realistic hammer action make the keyboard feel and respond like the one on an acoustic piano, allowing for the full expression of your musical talent. Three sensitivity settings let you customize the keyboard touch to your playing style.
The Korg LP350BK provides 30 high-quality voices, including a rich, authentic grand piano voice. In addition, there are a variety of reverb and chorus effects to add subtle variety to a song.
- Comfortable keyboard feel
- Sleek and stylish design
- Only 60 notes of polyphony
- No built-in song recorder
One area where the LP350BK may fail to measure up to competitors is in its limited polyphony. Polyphony refers to the number of notes that can be played at the same time. This factor is particularly important when you are playing dense musical passages with the sustain pedal. In general, more notes of polyphony are better. Higher polyphony allows for every played note to fall off naturally, rather than getting cut off too soon.
The LP350BK provides 60 notes of polyphony, compared to 128 notes of polyphony on similar Yamaha and Casio pianos. Depending on how you play the piano and how attuned your ear is, you may or may not notice this difference.
The LP350BK’s keyboard can be transposed to any key, and can also be layered to allow for two voices at the same time. The piano comes with three pedals, like an acoustic piano, and also offers half-pedaling capacity for a more realistic piano feel. One of the premium touches on this model is the assisted-closing keyboard lid – no more accidental slamming shut. The lid folds up and serves as a music rest, then softly folds out to protect the keyboard when it’s not being used.
Some people don’t want a digital piano that is going to dominate the room or look “messy.” The design of this model takes into account the desire for a sleek, unobtrusive musical instrument. Although the keyboard is full-sized, the piano has a slim profile and is less than 11 inches deep. With the lid closed, the top is flat and smooth, allowing the piano to blend into a room’s decor. The matte black finish on the instrument enhances its appeal.
The piano has a built-in metronome, 30 demo songs, and MIDI connectivity. Unlike similar models from other companies, it doesn’t have a built-in song recorder. The powerful 11-watt speakers produce brilliant, rewarding sound. The piano also has two headphone jacks for quiet use.
The Korg LP350BK is a well-crafted digital piano that delivers impressive sound and keyboard feel in an attractive, space-saving package. The piano is lacking a few features that similar models have, so make sure to do your research carefully before making a buying decision.
