The SV-1 73 Black Reverse from Korg is an 73-key stage piano that comes packed with some of the industry's most in-demand vintage keyboard and piano sounds. Crafted using the company's RX (Real eXperience) Technology, each sound is an authentic re-creation, capturing the full range of expression and dynamics of the original. The limited edition SV-1 88 Black Reverse sports a bold styled body with a modern colour scheme of black keys and red accidentals, along with additions featuring a red vacuum tube and panel LEDs, redesigned black knob heads, and matte finished sides.

The acoustic pianos include three-way stereo versions of legendary German and Japanese grand pianos, an intimate upright along with an essential mono piano for the smaller gigs, a late '70s, mid '80s Japanese electro-acoustic variation, plus a few layered piano sounds. Organs include three variations of the classic tonewheel model, plus the well-known British and Italian combo organs, along with an offering of a signature American tube-driven console. The instrument also includes electric pianos, clavs, tape-based and analogue strings, choir and a couple of analogue synthesisers.

The SV-1 features the company's RH3 graded hammer action keyboard, delivering an authentic piano feel and response. Tube-driven amp modelling, eighteen studio quality effects, and a three-band equaliser are available to further tailor the sounds. For connectivity, the keyboard includes stereo 1/4" inputs and outputs plus a pair of balanced XLR outputs ideal for stage and studio. Additionally, the unit provides a headphone output for private practice, a music rack, and damper pedal. Cross-platform editor/librarian software is also included.
