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!
