In addition to the SP7-7 the SP4-8 stage piano, is a premium instrument designed for musicians who require expression and sound quality.

With four programmable zones, the SP4-8 conveniently allows you to create splits and layers at the touch of a button meaning you can react and adjust your sound in a live setting on-the-fly with ease.

With additional sounds online available for download, you can create a personalized sound set with absolutely no "filler".
