As 2020 drew a to close, we all came out with a new understanding for free time.
As millions of people across the world started working from home our schedule became more open. We were no longer travelling 30 minutes to an hour to get to work, just the number of steps to our home office from the kitchen. With all this time inside we all took up new hobbies, and if the sales figures are anything to go by it looks like a lot of us took up learning the piano. Now that it’s 2021 you’re looking to transfer your new found skills to a fully realised digital keyboard and we’ve got three models that could be your next favourite instrument!
This model takes the idea of a home piano and cranks it up to 11. While it looks deceptive with a classy rosewood, light ash, black or white finish and simple panel layout it packs a ton a features like the powerful Roland SuperNATURAL engine that powers all of the sounds, PHA-4 keyboard for near real acoustic piano key feel, 3D ambience with headphones and Bluetooth connectivity for audio and MIDI. If you plan to use it as a teaching tool the RP701 also includes learning features like a metronome, over 300 songs to play along to and connectivity to the Roland Piano-Everyday app that lets you practise scales and songs as well as download sheet music. This piano will take advantage of everything you can throw at it and is a must for any pianist.
