If you live in an apartment and want to bring a quality piano into your life, the F-140R is for you. Roland’s acclaimed sound, action, and technology features deliver premium piano performance in a size that fits easily in tight spaces. The F-140R’s understated-yet-elegant look is ideal for modern living, and your choice of White or Contemporary Black finishes allow you to perfectly match the instrument to your style and decor. Functioning as a music rest when open, the F-140R’s unique lid design closes to completely cover the keyboard, providing a low-profile appearance when the piano is not in use.
With superior build quality and innovative technology that far exceeds other instruments in its price class, the F-140R is a serious musical instrument that will last you through years of musical growth and piano enjoyment. Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine delivers the rich, complex sound of an acoustic grand, providing a truly incredible playing experience. The PHA-4 Standard Keyboard inherits the Progressive Hammer Action and Ivory Feel texture of keyboards found in our high-end pianos, and includes advanced sensing technology to take full advantage of SuperNATURAL Piano’s enormous tonal range.
With its onboard rhythm function, the F-140R gives you the ability to play and practice music along with a beautiful backing ensemble. The rhythms are incredibly easy to use, providing intelligent backing that automatically follows the chords you play. 72 different rhythm styles cover a diverse variety of musical genres, from rock and jazz to Latin, reggae, modern electronic styles, and many others. In addition to the fun of practicing and performing with a full-band sound, the rhythms help build your timing skills in a way that’s far more engaging than the standard metronome function. Playing with rhythms also offers a great opportunity to explore making music with the F-140R’s generous selection of non-piano sounds, such as organ, guitar, brass, synths, and more.
The way people learn the piano is changing thanks to smartphones and tablets. Whether you order your music scores from an online store like Sheet Music Direct, or you prefer a more advanced approach, the F-140R fits around the way you like to play. Using iOS apps like PiaScore gives free access to over 70,000 classical music scores – and by pressing the piano’s pedal you can even turn the pages of the score on your iPad/iPhone screen.
