      Roland RP501R-CR


      The Roland RP501R in rosewood is a digital piano that sounds and looks fantastic. Designed for beginners through to any level of player, the RP501 makes use of Rolands' latest PHA4 piano action combined with their SuperNatural sound technology to produce a real piano playing experience at an affordable price. Built in Bluetooth technology also allows you to make use and integrate with compatible smart devices for education and entertainment.

      Authentic Piano Feel

      Roland have equipped the RP501R with the new PHA-4 piano action. The PHA-4 is a graded hammer system which goes from heavier on the bass section to lighter in the upper section to replicate a genuine acoustic piano touch. The keys are covered with synthetic ivory which increases the players grip on the keys and has the original feel of an acoustic piano key. The action is incredibly dynamic and offers up a great feel just like that of the acoustic equivalent.

      Added to the feel of the keys is the graded piano pedal. the piano gets progressively heavier as you press the pedal down, just like it would on on an original piano where the mechanism weight starts shifting. the combination of this and the great response from the keys really allows the player to experience the real thing without the downsides of acoustic pianos.

      SuperNatural Piano

      The Roland SuperNatural technology brings to life acoustic realism without the need for sampling piano sounds. SuperNatural technology doesn't use sample looping, it creates models of the characteristics and responsive aspects of the piano. The SuperNATURAL engine handles how those parameters react to performance dynamics and nuances from a controller such as a keyboard, just as they would in the original instrument. The result is a sound that is incredibly dynamic, responsive and is adjusting to the way you play just like the acoustics would in an acoustic piano.

      A Whole World Of Sounds

      The RP501R-CB is much more than just a great digital piano. It offers a pallet of sounds for practically any style of music you desire to play. There are over 300 additional sounds to choose from, ranging from electric pianos and guitars right through to strings, organs, and world instruments. It will definitely keep you entertained and cover all your musical sound needs.

      Built-In styles

      Expand your musical potential with a choice of 72 backing styles. The backing styles vary from Ballads, Pop and Jazz through to Latin, Rock and everything in-between. The styles include a drums, bass and a little accompaniment to enhance your piano playing experience. The backing style is intelligent and will follow the key of the music you are playing, effectively giving you a band that follows your every move!

      Bluetooth Technology

      Rolands' Bluetooth Technology is a new way to interact with modern technology and to start learning or simply add a new dimension to your musical enjoyment. Bluetooth allows you to interact with apps on compatible devices which can be downloaded from the App Store. Bluetooth wireless is built in for working with MIDI music apps on mobile devices, while USB support enables you to play along with favorite tunes.
