Here’s what Korg say:

With a red gradation finish that makes it identifiable at a glance, this Korg Kronos features the new Italian-made grand piano that debuted on the Korg Grandstage. It also comes with the pre-installed "KApro Showcase" that collects only carefully selected sounds from KApro, who provided more than 100 of the Kronos Sound Libraries. The gorgeous color and sound delivered only by Kronos will make an unmistakable difference on stage. The Kronos Special Edition is available in a lineup of three models: 61-key, 73-key, and 88-key.

Italian Piano

In recent years, this Italian grand has drawn dramatically increased attention from the worlds of classical and jazz music. The presence of its sound and its detailed resonances have captivated audiences worldwide. A full concert grand previously used in international competitions was specially adjusted and sampled for the Kronos.

KApro Showcase

This includes orchestral strings that sing with emotion, as well as brass, woodwinds, choir, and phrases. It's a showcase of sounds from KApro, who has developed more than 100 titles of Korg sound libraries. This collection will be a gateway for you to further expand your sonic variety

Flagship RH3 Weighted Hammer Action

Both the 88- and 73-key Kronos models use Korg's finest RH-3 Real Weighted Hammer Action. Offering an authentic and accurate piano feel, there are four zones, ranging from heavier to lighter, to provide a truer piano playing experience. Even the 88 key model is slim enough to place on a standard keyboard stand. The Kronos achieves the perfect balance of functionality and design.
