Roland RD-64, good piano, easy transportation

Musicians (pianists in our case) have always been confronted to a cornelian dilemma: with standard instruments available on the market, they constantly had to choose between sound quality and instrument weight. This was true until the Roland RD-64 landed this year in the USA Namm show where it was disclosed.

Weight or quality ? no compromise !

In the past, it was mandatory to have a heavy piano to be allowed to play a hammer action mechanism with a suitable sound. If you ventured to buy a quite light keyboard then it sounded awful. Today things will me much more easier with the RD 64. Roland developed a good compromise between size / weight, good note feeling, comfort on playing, and sound quality. To summarize, pianists will be comfortable by playing this piano and will be delighted by its interesting sound and … its weight of 28,25 lbs (12,7 Kg).
