Roland Announces The RG-1 Digital Grand Piano [Musikmesse 2008]

United States
Blending high-performance with streamlined elegance

UK, March 12th, 2008 — The RG-1 is Roland’s most affordable high-performance grand piano yet. Combining graceful style with a stunning Satin Black finish that blends elegantly into any environment, the RG-1’s piano sound and touch are exquisite, akin to playing a world-class grand. However, its bonus features such as the USB memory port give this instrument much more functionality than meets the eye.

This is the ideal choice for players who desire high-end piano sound along with the playability, performance, and looks of a classy grand piano. With a streamlined grand-piano shape, the RG-1 is an elegant addition to any room and features a lightweight, easy-to-open lid that can be locked while it is opened.

The RG-1 is equipped with Roland’s finest 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano sound, capturing the distinctive acoustic properties of each key to accurately reproduce the subtlety and nuance of a full concert grand piano.

Roland’s acclaimed PHA II keyboard with Escapement and Ivory Feel keys yields a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper. It also provides lighter resistance for pianissimo passages and stronger resistance for fortissimo.

Practical technology also plays a part in this traditionally attractive piano: Play along with your favourite songs by inserting an industry standard USB Flash Memory or optional USB CD drive. The RG-1’s flexible file compatibility enables playback of WAV files and Standard MIDI Files through the built-in stereo speaker system meaning it’s great for “one-man band" type performance, or skill-building play-along sessions.
