NAMM 2009: More choices, more sounds as KMS expands highly successful SP series line

August 13, 2009

The two latest additions to Kurzweil’s SP family of stage pianos, the SP2XS and the SP3x, debuted at this year’s NAMM show in Anaheim CA.

At the heart of every SP model is the famous Kurzweil Grand Piano sound. We started with the highest quality samples and then used a powerful synth engine behind the scenes to make them truly come to life as only Kurzweil could.

Pristine reverbs, which decay into complete silence, add the finishing touch to a sound which has come to be known as an industry standard worldwide.

The SP3x builds on the design of the highly successful SP2x with an expanded sound set of 512 programs. In addition to pianos, the SP3x offers a wide variety of other top notch sounds, including winds, voices, synths, brass, bass, guitar and ensembles. With a wide range of sounds, effects and extensive MIDI controller capabilities, the SP3x  is equally well suited for use on stage, at home, or in the studio, and is perfect for worship based music.

The SP2XS joins the SP2 and SP3 to round out the product line, providing an option for players who need a high quality built-in sound system in a professional grade instrument. With a custom 20 watt per channel power amplifier and matched, high efficiency speakers with full range 3×5″ drivers, the sound system has been optimized for the SP2XS’s enclosure, delivering stunning sound quality.

“I kept looking for external speakers – I couldn’t believe that what I was hearing was coming out of the keyboard itself. Simply amazing!”, says Kurzweil national sales manager, Jeff Dunmire.
