Still love my SV-1 after one year from AMS!
By: Harold J Rolle from Pawleys Island , South Carolina, US
What is your overall opinion of this product?
The sounds are amazing and you can use the editor to tweak to the finest details...I absolutely love my board. Feels like a baby Rhodes, (heavy like one too....I used to have a Mark II ) There are boards online to exchange sound favorites....see sound of stars (Germany website for sv-1 favs) I'd buy this over again if I had to... I have no problems with it so far.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I think the quality is exceptional... I've only read about damaged reviewers ...but mine works perfect, and I tweak it a ton!
Ease of Use
How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player?
It's cool for a beginner, but its the type of board that you can grow in to. You have to really make it your own. The better you learn to play...the better it delivers....Even if u a novice, the tone sounds so rich that folks will think u are better than u are.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
Favorite features are the editor, and handy inputs....perfect for live gigs.
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
The sound is the reason I bought it, and the fact that I could tweak it and make it respond even better....YOU MUST explore your board...factory presets are just the beginning!
How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well?
Love the feel... Controls simple enough...
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I wouldn't want any other board .... I also have a fantom, have had MOX and Korg other boards ...happy with my setup now... maybe a baby B3 one day
Probably a great keyboard if we could find one that works
By: Lu Ann Bradshaw from Andover KS
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
We purchased this keyboard and it was defective right out of the box. Three of the keys were frozen. So we returned it and AMS shipped another one. This time, only one key was frozen but it was defective nonetheless so we had to return the second one as well. It seems to me that making sure the keys work would be the simplest quality assurance task that could be performed on a keyboard yet we got two in a row that had this defect. We still want the keyboard but we are forced to buy it from a local retail store so that we can take it out of the box to make sure all the keys work. We spent 2 months receiving and shipping back defective keyboards and have no more time to waste.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
N/A since we never got to use the two we received.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Seems like it would be easy to use but don't know yet since we had to return both of ours
How is the tone?
Your general opinion of this product.
Love the idea of this keyboard and the one we saw in a retail store seemed awesome. Hopefully we will find one that is not defective soon.
Was this item an overall good value?
Seems like a good keyboard if Korg could get their quality under control.
