Kurzweil Music Systems’ new SP1 Stage Piano is now shipping in the UK through distributor, Sound Technology.

Following the success of the Kurzweil SP6 Stage Piano, the SP1 continues the same standard of sonic excellence in a streamlined, highly affordable, easy to use and portable package. The SP1’s intuitive controls and lack of menus let you stay focused on the music with direct sound selection and a customisable ‘Favourites’ section.  

The Kurzweil SP1 is aimed at students and schools, small gigs and home recording.
