Korg LP380: Review

Digital pianos keep getting better and cheaper. The Korg LP-380 is one such digital piano that offers a good value for money.

Korg’s LP-380 digital piano looks classy and has sounds derived from the company’s acclaimed Kronos workstation. The LP-380 employs Korg’s responsive RH3 (Real Weighted Hammer Action) keyboard, which gives you a heavier feel in the bass register, progressing to a lighter touch in the treble range — just like a real acoustic piano.

    My 7 year old son is learning to play on this piano, and I’m re-learning. The keys feel real, like a grand piano. I compared many models each from Roland, Yamaha, Kawai, Korg, and one other brand I can’t remember for sure. The Kawai’s were outstanding, but also 5-6 times more expensive. The Korg felt better than the Rolands or the Yamahas, and I thought the Korg sounded better too — even the super expensive ones. It was the clear winner for me, hands down. Everyone has their preferences of course, but I have been delighted with the quality and sound of this digital piano, and would choose it again for sure.

    The control interface is simple, and there are a lot of excellent sounding options. There is a line of speakers at the mid-upper level of the stand (that’s the black bar you see in the picture), when you play the high notes, the sound comes out on the right side, low notes, left side. The dynamics come out well, I can play from piano all the way to forte level and it can take quite a pounding when I need to be double forte.

    I have not found any digital piano sounding and feeling better, even for thousands of dollars more. For the money, it’s well worth it for a tight space and for a novice piano player. For now, and for a while, the LP-380 will be perfect.
