The C1 Air follows in the footsteps of Korg's flagship G1 Air — a Music Experience favorite — with an even more affordable digital piano model that delivers incredible sounds, a satisfyingly authentic playing experience with deep audible and tactile realism, split and layering capability, Bluetooth connectivity, and more. The Korg C1 Air brings you two of the world's finest concert grand pianos — plus dozens of other instruments — housed in a beautiful slimline cabinet. The C1 Air features Korg's advanced hammer-action keyboard, with touch and response remarkably similar to those of an acoustic grand piano. Meticulous multi-samples of German and Japanese concert grands are brought to life, complete with sympathetic string and damper resonance and key-off simulation — all perfectly integrated with the C1 Air's pedals and 88 fully-weighted keys. The C1 Air even has Bluetooth connectivity, so you can play along with your favorite tunes or practice with tracks, hearing everything on its great-sounding, full-range speaker system.

Multiple high-quality instruments onboard

Many concert pianists prefer the German concert grand piano, with its treble brilliance and bass-register prowess. The Japanese concert grand, with its characteristically dynamic sound, is a versatile choice for players specializing in everything from classical to jazz to popular favorites. Wouldn't it be great if you could have both? Korg has designed the C1 Air to deliver the sound of these two concert grand pianos to your fingertips with authentic realism. But that's not all; along with 30 high-quality built-in instruments, there are 40 piano songs to learn, along with demo songs that showcase the C1 Air's great sounds. Plus, you'll have access to partner mode, split and layer modes, and three outstanding, adjustable studio effects: Reverb, Brilliance, and Chorus.

      Authentic acoustic piano experience in a digital instrument

      Korg designed the C1 Air not only to generate realistic sounds, but also to offer piano players an authentic acoustic piano experience in a digital instrument. The real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keyboard features a heavier feel in the lower-register keys and a lighter feel as you play further up the keyboard. Quickly repeated notes are registered and reproduced with efficient velocity, and even on the most complicated passages, your playing dynamics will be faithfully conveyed. You even get key touch control with five sensitivity levels, allowing further control over how your playing is translated into music. A full complement of two concert-style pedals also offers half-pedaling for even finer artistic expression.

          Bluetooth connection for practice, performance, or playback

          With the C1 Air's Bluetooth connectivity, you can play tracks wirelessly for practice or play along with recorded music for live performance. When not playing the C1 Air, you can even connect your mobile device merely to experience high-quality playback of your favorite music. Take it from Music Experience; you'll love having the Bluetooth wireless connection and the convenience it provides.

          Made with care and pride in Miyama, Kyoto, Japan

          The RH3 keyboard installed in your C1 Air is made in the village of Miyama, in Kyoto, a region of Japan known for its impressive natural beauty. The majesty of the local forests and the traditions represented by the historic thatched-roof homes preserved there are reflected in the character of Miyama's people — and that makes Miyama a perfect place for building instruments with a high degree of care and accountability. Using the cell production method, in which a small group of highly skilled workers is responsible for taking each instrument from start to finish and signing off on each stage of production, Korg builds high-quality keyboards and entire digital pianos, one at a time, with a human touch.

            What KORG Says...

            Superb sound and outstanding design that will enhance any room. KORG sets a new standard for the Digital Piano. The C1 is a truly exceptional digital piano. With KORG’s unique history of musical instrument design and audio technology, the C1 offers levels of playability and versatility that will exceed the expectations of the most demanding pianist. From the very first note, the depth and clarity of sound that the C1 delivers from its compact, slim-line cabinet will astound both player and audience alike. The precisely-engineered keyboard provides a feel and response that has been designed to help the student develop a sound playing technique while responding fully to the demands of the more advanced player. First and foremost, the KORG C1 is a superb piano, both as an exciting alternative to an acoustic instrument or in locations where a traditional instrument could not be used. It never needs tuning and can be used with headphones to avoid disturbing others. Furthermore, a variety of additional features will inspire new levels of creativity in players of all abilities and enhance their enjoyment of music, including 30 superbly realistic instrument sounds, Bluetooth audio streaming and on-board recording. Designed and manufactured in Japan, the KORG C1 redefines the digital piano.

            Made in Japan - Premium Japanese Quality

            The KORG C1 digital piano features a Real Weighted Hammer Action (RH3) keyboard that divides the hammers into four different weights, with a heavier feel in the low register and a lighter feel in the high register as found on concert grand pianos. The entire process of making the C1, from making this keyboard to assembling the complete instrument, is carried out in Miyama-cho, Nantan-shi, located in the Nantan region at the center of Kyoto prefecture that is one of Japan's most famous tourism spots, noted for its preservation of numerous historic houses.

            RH3 keyboard provides a great-feeling playing experience

            The C1 features the real weighted hammer action 3 (RH3) keyboard that 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.

            Sophisticated and elegant design

            While paying homage to the acoustic piano’s traditional form, a new design philosophy elevates the C1 above the bland, rectangular appearance of many digital pianos. The contemporary design features linear legs which accentuate the overall styling of the instrument and, at only 26 cm (10.24")* in depth, the C1 can be placed virtually anywhere. Keeping safety in mind, the cover uses a soft landing mechanism to ensure that it closes gently. The C1 is available in a black, white or brown wood finish to match the décor of your room. (*Excluding the anti-tip hardware)

              Tradition and technology in harmony create a concert grand piano virtually anywhere

              The sound of a piano changes significantly depending on how it is played. In order to provide this high level of expressive power from a digital piano, two concert grand pianos were selected by professional pianists, regulated and tuned by master technicians and sampled by KORG engineers. This complex process enables the C1 to simulate the experience of playing either a German grand or a Japanese grand, and were chosen to reflect a broad musical spectrum providing faithful recreations of dark, subtle and intense classical music through to bright and powerful jazz and pop music. The C1 gives you natural and satisfying grand piano performance at home, on stage or in the studio.

              Damper Resonance

              Both the German Grand Piano and the Japanese Grand Piano sounds realistically recreate the "damper resonance" effect produced by the sympathetic resonance of the strings in an acoustic piano when the damper pedal is held down.

              Key-off Simulation

              Key-off simulation recreates the sounds produced when the player’s fingers lift off the keys. The damper resonance effect and key-off simulation provide an even greater feeling of realism as you play!

              Enjoy 30 high-quality instruments sounds and studio effects

              The German Grand piano characterized by brilliant highs and rounded bass is one of richness and power. The Japanese Grand piano is characterized by its dynamic sound and is frequently used for a wide range of music genres, from classical to jazz and pop. In addition to a choice of these acoustic piano sounds, the C1 also offers electric piano sounds, organ, clav, vibraphone, acoustic guitar, strings and more, giving you a total of 30 richly expressive sounds. Three high-quality effects are also available: brilliance, reverb, and chorus. Optimal effects are preset for each of the built-in sounds, so all you need to do is select a sound and enjoy playing immediately with the ideal settings.

              The Stereo sound optimizer that gives presence to the sound when the headphones are used

              This gives presence to the sound that is reproduced, as if playing an acoustic piano, even when headphones are used. You can experience comfort even with a long performance.

              New speaker system delivers high output and great sound

              The C1 features a specially designed speaker system that delivers the incredibly realistic sounds of the C1 pianos and other instrument voices in superb detail. High-quality speakers are powered by a 25W x 2 amplifier to deliver rich sound with depth and clarity. From rounded bass to brilliant highs, you will experience the nuanced, expressive power of a grand piano in your own home.

              Two-track song recorder to instantly record your performance

              Two-track digital recording is instantly available to help you analyze or archive your performances. You can record each hand separately or record an additional track onto a previously-recorded song. Playback tempo can be adjusted and up to 99 user songs can be saved in the C1.

              A variety of keyboard layout options

              Simply by pressing one button, you can apply a bass sound to the lower register of the keyboard. Play piano with your right hand and bass with your left to instantly enjoy jazz performance styles. By pressing two of the tone buttons simultaneously, you can easily layer two sounds together. For example, layer piano and strings to play with a rich piano and orchestra combination. There’s also a partner mode that enables you to divide the piano keyboard into two identical sections on left and right, each with their own damper pedal. This is a great way for teacher and pupil to play duets or copy and practice during lessons.

              Forty piano songs with helpful features for practicing

              In addition to ten demonstration songs that showcase the different sounds of the C1, there are also 40 built-in piano songs. To help you learn, you can control the tempo, play back the right-hand and left-hand parts separately, and use A-B repeat to practice more complex sections.

              Equipped with three pedals as standard with half-pedaling feature

              The pedals are an essential element of piano performance, and the C1 is equipped with the full complement of three pedals found on a grand piano: damper, soft and sostenuto. The damper and soft pedals also feature half-pedaling for even more detailed expression.


              The CONCERT piano series from KORG sets a new standard in digital pianos. It is designed to recreate the sound, feel and experience of a concert hall performance on some of the world’s finest grand pianos.
