Roland gave us their first digital piano back in ’73, and followed it up in ’74 with the world’s first electronic piano with a touch-sensitive keyboard. Ten years later, the HP-300 and HP-400 became the first digital pianos to feature MIDI and the progress really hasn’t stopped since then.
In 1992, Roland debuted the HP-7700: their first digital grand piano; just because the digital electronics were light and compact, it didn’t mean that the piano itself couldn’t be as elegant and physically inspiring as an acoustic grand.
To this day, Roland’s range of grand and premium upright pianos continues to inspire the same inspiration – from practice to performance – combining the latest advances in sound engine performance, with cabinets that offer the same majesty as their acoustic counterparts, whether that’s on stage or in your home.
This week, Roland made it easier for you to experience the sound, feel and design of these pianos by dropping the prices on a range of models.
If you’ve longed to own a grand piano but were discouraged by the cost or weight, the Roland GP607 digital grand could be the perfect addition to your home. A stylish piano in polished ebony or white, the GP607 pays tribute to the classic grand piano form with an imposing-yet-graceful design.
At its new price of £4399, the Roland GP607 is £250 cheaper than it was previously, and represents a beautiful investment in your music.
When Roland wanted to build a luxurious upright piano for the connoisseur, they wanted to combine the rich sound and graceful appearance of an acoustic, with the myriad advantages of a digital piano. The LX-17 is powered by the latest version of Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling technology, along with a unique keyboard that blends wood and molded materials for great feel and durability.
At its new price of £4399 – a saving of £160 – the LX-17 is a stunning example of a modern digital piano.
Since 1972, Roland has worked to create the ultimate piano experience, and the LX-7 is one of their best examples of that. Like the LX-17, the Roland LX-7 combines their SuperNatural sound engine with a superb-feeling keyboard in a compact and beautifully finished cabinet that will be the perfect addition to any home.
With the contemporary black and brown walnut versions previously on sale at £3069, you can save £370 at their new price of £2699, with the polished ebony version now £3249, a saving of £350.
