NAMM 2012: Roland HP500 Series Digital Pianos
Pianists everywhere have been heaping praise on Roland for their SuperNATURAL sound engine and now it has arrived on their new HP500 range. It’s amazingly realistic Grand Piano which provides variations in tone throughout the entire dynamic range, notes that fade naturally, and three-dimensional sound and response.
The range consists of the entry level HP503 followed by the HP505 and the top of the line HP507. All contain their own definitive features and to further enhance the playing experience, Roland has included its fantastic Ivory Feel keyboard. All models have an LCD screen as well as an on-board three track recording and audio playback facility with optional USB Flash Memory.
The HP507 comes with a six channel Acoustic Projection system on-board, and is equipped with PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement for the ultimate grand piano touch and feel. The HP505 comes with a four-channel Acoustic Projection system as well as the PHA III.
The HP505 and HP507 pianos come in various colours from Satin Black, Rosewood and Polished Ebony whilst the HP503 is available in "Simulated" Rosewood or Satin Black finishes.
