KORG B2 CONCERT SERIES DIGITAL PIANO
The B2 is a new generation of digital piano from KORG focused on great sound, superb playability and easy operation.
Perfect for both beginners and more advanced players, we've paid special attention to recreating the experience of playing a real piano. The B2 features legendary grand pianos from around the world together with a selection of additional sounds.
The B2 has a total of 12 sounds and features five pristine acoustic pianos, together with a richly distinctive electric piano, classical and electronic organs, harpsichord and strings. The piano sounds are based on two distinctive acoustic instruments and provide the pianist with a range of options for any type of music.
This world-famous German piano is beloved by countless pianists for its diverse range of expressive power. With stunning sonic dynamism and vibrance, its sonic palette features brilliant highs and a powerful and detailed bass.
The sound options available are a majestic "German concert piano" and a "Classic piano" which features a delicate and complex tone.
The Italian piano has beautifully bright expression and satisfying sustain. Pianists around the world are enraptured by its rich resonance and sensitive responsiveness.
The sound options available are "Italian concert piano," a bright-toned "Jazz piano," and a beautifully resonant "Ballad piano."
A keyboard that reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano
The B2 has a Natural Weighted Hammer Action (NH) keyboard which has the feel of an acoustic piano, including the difference in weight between the heavier lower area of the keyboard and the lighter touch in the higher end. The NH keyboard provides the player with an expressive response, suitable for all types of music.
Equipped with versatile inputs and outputs for a range of connectivity
The B2 provides connection options that enable the instrument to be used with a variety of music software and hardware. This opens new and exciting possibilities for the digital piano, helping players learn and enhance their creativity.
USB MIDI/ USB Audio
You can use a USB cable* to connect this instrument's USB port to your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and use the B2 as a MIDI keyboard to play an external sound module. Your performance on the B2 can be recorded as music data on your smartphone, and sound from your smartphone can be heard through the speakers of the B2.
* USB cable sold separately for connection to your PC, and a USB cable + Lightning-USB camera adaptor (both sold separately) for connection to your iPhone or iPad.
By connecting your smartphone's headphone jack or your music player, you can output your favourite music through the speakers of the B2 and enjoy playing along. Even when you're not playing the piano, you can use the B2 as a home speaker system for enjoying music.
Generous bundle of software that's convenient for practice and creativity

Convenience and functionality with the simplicity of a real piano
The metronome can be turned on/off with one touch. There's a touch control function that gives you three levels of adjustment for how your playing dynamics affect the sound (light, normal, heavy), letting users perform with a response that suits their own style. Also provided are settings for two effects: reverb and chorus.
Included music rest for sheet music and mobile devices
The removable music rest features a wide, spacious design. There's enough space to spread out several sheets of music, reducing your need to turn pages while performing. You can also place sheet music beside your iPad or other tablet.
Multiple configurations to meet your needs
The B2 is the perfect platform for piano practice and performance. For even more serious players, we recommend the B2SP which also packages a stand and a three-pedal unit as standard.
Also available is the B2N, which is equipped with the same functionality as the B2 but features a lighter-touch keyboard. Select the model that fits your playing style. A full range of options such as the dedicated STB1 stand for the B2/B2N and the PU-2 three-pedal unit are also available.
