Unbelievable Acoustic Piano Sound and Feel

Maximize your stage performance with the Roland RD-800 stage piano. Created using Roland's SuperNATURAL piano sounds, the 88-key RD-800 has a wide selection of acoustic piano voicings (five piano types with 34 variations), so you can find that perfect sound for any gig. The results are nothing short of amazing! A large LCD screen and new LED rotary knobs and buttons let you easily see your settings in any lighting situation. The Roland RD-800 also sports Roland's famed PHA-4 keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel. Add to that over 1,000 additional tones, and you have everything you need for any gig.

SuperNATURAL piano sound engine delivers ultra-realistic acoustic piano sound

The RD-800's SuperNATURAL piano sound engine combines Roland's award-winning V-Piano technology with an extraordinary 88-key stereo multi-sampling core. Through extensive analysis of the sonic characteristics of world-class concert pianos, Roland has painstakingly reproduced the tonal colors and expressiveness of a fine acoustic grand piano. You actually get five acoustic piano settings with a total of 34 variations. From the natural note decay to seamless tonal color changes to the authentic key range behavior, Roland has nailed it. Short of sitting down at a real grand piano, you won't get a more natural sound than what the RD-800 has to offer.

Realism that extends beyond sound

The RD-800 features Roland's PHA-4 keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel, possibly the truest-feeling grand-piano-style keybed out there. The keys are designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel, even in the hottest stage environments where sweaty hands can spell disaster. At Sweetwater, we know that keyboard feel is important, and the RD-800 gives you an amazing playing experience and feel that's as authentic as you can get. And thanks to the RD-800's simple and intuitive layout, not only do your keys stay at your fingertips, but your favorite piano sounds do as well. When you step up to a Roland RD-800, prepare for a stage piano playing experience like no other!

This stage piano was made to be played live

Every aspect of the Roland RD-800 stage piano was designed for live use. The amazing patches and sound sets let you take on even the most demanding gigs with ease. A large color LCD lets you instantly see what sounds you have set. Illuminated knobs and buttons are visible in any lighting situation, so you can always see your settings. The tremolo, amp simulator, effects, and EQ/delay sections have dedicated controls, so you can tweak on the fly.

The best just got better

I've been using a Roland RD700NX for over 3 years and loved it. The upgrades in the RD800 really perfected the few things that were missing on the RD700NX. The upgrades are not enormous, but very significant. The obvious, lighter weight and new look. Mostly, Roland added some features and editing functions that are so helpful for live performance and studio work. The soundguy at our frequent hall is thrilled with the sound of this over the RD700nx. I can quickly adjust tone and eq on the fly making easier for both of us to get precise sound and mix needed (even in mono). The new lighter chassis is beautiful and solid as rock. The new action is much quieter than my thumping RD700nx. This is really helpful for my studio work. My main focus is piano sound (my background) and the RD800 delivers that better than most Ive heard, stunning in fact. I tried the Yamaha CP4 which is another wonderful stage piano, but lacks a few significant features I need in piano. The RD800 is truly a cut above with rich piano sounds, full resonance, realistic action, ease of functionality, endless editing options, additional usable voices, and a fresh new style. The combination of it all just enthralls the performer. It's so enjoyable that it's hard to stop playing. Stage pianos are obviously subjective to your taste, but do a side by side test with the other high end stage pianos NS2, CP4, Artist, you will see for yourself what I mean. RD800 is absolutely fantastic on stage and a pure pleasure in the studio at a very fair price. Well done Roland! Great service Sweetwater! - LH

Rolands best sound and action ever.

Roland perfected the the RD line with this board. I had to replace faithful but damaged RD700GX and bought the RD800 without a test run. Im not going to compare the RD800 to the 700GX. It's to entirely different boards as the RD800 is exceedingly advanced in every way possible. RD800 quick comments: I never played a digital piano where the action allows such precise control over the dynamics so nicely. Touch sensitivity and key weight are absolutely perfect. They really perfected the action with this latest PHA4. The sound of the new AP and Eps is where Roland really shines. Many new supernatural sounds to work with as well as hundreds of usable voices. Editing is simple and fast with a wide range of options. What makes me most happy is that I am getting acoustic pianos sounds that are just simply stunning and I didn't have to buy an expensive Nord to get this incredible sound. Not to mention the subpar action of the Nords. The RD800 is a massive upgrade. It is concert and studio worthy in every way and should be the new standard for any advanced professional musician. Im grateful to own one.
