Performing with the Kurzweil Forte 88-key stage piano is as enjoyable as it is to listen to it. You'll have an incredible selection of sounds with the built-in 16GB sound library, including new German and Japanese concert grand pianos. There are updated Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clav, and Harpsichord sounds, and a wide assortment of sounds from Kurzweil's acclaimed PC3 and KORE64 soundsets. We've worked with Kurzweil keyboards at Sweetwater ever since the K250, and we can confidently say that the Kurzweil Forte sets a new standard for performance-focused stage pianos.
