“All in all I thought the Korg PA 588 is a great keyboard”
I didn’t know whether to buy the Korg or Roland? After long deliberation and
spending hours reading the reviews and countless visits to various music
shops I purchased the Korg PA 588 a digital keyboard with weighted keys
At 25 Kg not really a portable instruments but a very good purchase for the
Korg PA 588 is not cheap (£1600.00) however here are my views:
It was important for a keyboard to play and sounded like a real Piano not
only by listening to it on headphones but also in a live situation. I needed 88 keys that
were weighted. I also require a the following instruments to sound full
tone wise, not thin and wispy
The sounds I required were:-
Grand and upright Bright piano
A Fender Rhodes type piano
Strings and layered synths
I needed 4 organ types for live work
Drawbar with rotary speaker effect
It had to be reliable. Inputs Outputs to easily accessed.
A quick and easy
way to navigate save favorites at a touch of a button.
Having a recording and backing facility was a bonus.
All in all I thought the Korg PA 588 is a great keyboard a great feel and a
great selection of useful sounds.
I would recommend this instrument for all the reasons mentioned above.
I intent to upgrade my piano later this year to a lighter model.
The weight would need to be 20kg. Yamaha now have two models considering CP
1 and CP 5, or alternatively Roland 700 NX series.
