Ever since Roland introduced the world’s first touch sensitive electronic piano, the EP-30, in 1972, it has been a leader in the design and manufacture of the digital piano. Roland instruments of all kinds are known by professional musicians, educators, and home hobbyists all around the world for their sound quality and durability.
Roland’s current line up of digital pianos incorporate their expressive SuperNATURAL™ Piano Sound with Progressive Hammer key actions to faithfully recreate the grand piano experience, while providing all the advantages of the digital world.
The SuperNATURAL™ Piano sound combines the realism of multi-sampled piano sound with the extended dynamic range and realism of modelling technology gleaned from their flagship and revolutionary V-Grand piano.
Their Progressive Hammer key actions are precisely weighted from low bass to high treble to recreate the control of a grand piano action, with an ivory–feel key surface, and escapement.
Here at Merriam Music we have chosen some of the best current Roland models to add to the offerings in our digital piano showroom.
Roland has been one of the lead innovators in electronic and digital pianos from the 1980’s onward. Many of the approaches to manufacturing and synthesis technology that Roland developed in their early years have become industry-wide practices. They were one of the first companies to bring midi recording to people’s homes, and also one of the first to develop truly life-like piano tone. Roland’s embrace of the entire range of instruments led to the development of the V-Series of instruments, encompassing everything from Accordions to Drums, to Pianos.
