New Roland stage piano

Roland has a new stage piano, the RD-08. Weighing 13.5kg, it looks like it’s meant for active gigging musicians. And it’s selling for $999.00. It’s always interesting to see and hear new keyboards, so I thought I’d share. I’ve put a few links.

Here’s what it sounds like:

Here’s the product page:

And here are a couple of videos from Kraft Music. (I’m not endorsing them, though I have bought my equipment from them.) Their overview videos are generally pretty thorough. Here are two, if you’re interested. The first is an overview; the second is just playing and showing some of the sound possibilities. Enjoy! :musical_keyboard:

Thanks for sharing this @scott1 - I have the previous model (RD-88) which I believe is the same weight. For portability the RD-88 is the best keyboard I have come across.

I’ve been using a bigger Roland (HP-307) for the last 6 months which I really like, but it doesn’t have the portability of the RD range.

I look forward to testing the RD-08 next time I’m in a piano shop!
