Feels Like a Grand, Sounds Like a Grand

Close your eyes and play the DP-970. Your fingers will experience the feel of a real piano, and your ears will hear the authentic sound of a true grand. Roland’s mastery of music technology culminates in features such as the DP-970’s Progressive Hammer Action keyboard, which provides a true piano touch that gets gradually lighter as you travel up the keyboard. And its stereo-sampled grand-piano sound with 3D Sound Control creates a rich, multi-dimensional sound experience even from headphones. The DP-970’s Dynamic Emphasis adds clarity and liveliness to the sound, and the newly developed Bass Reflex speaker system delivers powerful, clear, full-frequency output.
Great piano sound is only the beginning. The DP-970 offers 20 types of sounds, Grand Piano being just one of them. Layer two sounds with Dual mode; assign different sounds to the right- and left-hand zones with Split mode.

Stylish Form that Compliments Any Home Decor

The DP-970 is sophisticated, stylish, and compact — approximately 30cm in depth. It can fit easily into the tightest of spaces. When the lid is closed, the top becomes a smooth, flat surface. The DP-970 is available in three attractive color choices: solid medium cherry, light cherry, and black.

Onboard Songs

Over 60 songs are built into the DP-970, great for play-along, personal enjoyment, and entertainment. A variety of musical styles are presented, including many classic masterpieces. Right- or left-hand parts can be muted for play-along practice.

Built-In Lesson Functions

Make practicing fun with the Twin Piano mode, which allows the keyboard to be split into two zones with the same pitch ranges on both, perfect for teacher-student lessons or duets. The built-in 2-track recorder allows objective evaluation/playback of performances. A metronome function is built into the DP-970 for improving your rhythmic sense.
