Professional Quality at an Affordable Price

From its improved weighted hammer-action keyboard to the simplified front panel and classy wooden end bells, the RD-170 simply outshines the competition.

New Half-Damper Capabilities

With new half-pedal recognition, the RD-170 takes on all the expressiveness of an acoustic grand piano. When used with the supplied Damper Pedal, this technology allows the RD-170 to sense pedal positions other than just "On" and "Off". The result is more natural sustained playing that captures the true spirit of an acoustic piano.

Legendary RD Piano Sounds and More

As one might expect, the RD-170's piano sounds are nothing less than phenomenal. The acoustic grand piano is a real standout; thanks to stereo sampling, every nuance can be faithfully captured. Of course, there's also a selection of fine instrument Tones ranging from electric piano and strings to organs, mallets and more-64 Tones in all.

Built-In Song Recorder and More

The RD-170's onboard 2-track recorder makes capturing a performance ultra-intuitive. Or if you don't feel like playing, simply listen to one of 16 outstanding demo songs. A built-in metronome makes it easy for students to stay on beat while practicing. Whether for home use or on stage, the RD-170 has the features you need most at a price you can afford.

Convenient Master Keyboard Functions

Whether taking advantage of the onboard Split and Layer functions to play the internal sounds, or controlling a rack of MIDI modules, you'll love using the RD-170 as your master keyboard. With controller functions built-in, you can play and control external MIDI modules simultaneously-all with minimal fuss. The RD-170's 16 programmable setup memories make it easy to save and recall custom settings-great for performance.
