Contemporary Mini-Grand Goes SuperNATURAL Piano

Inheriting the stylish contemporary look and space-saving footprint of its RG-1 predecessor, the RG-1F goes upscale with the new SuperNATURAL Piano engine and flagship PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard. The chic style and attractive Satin Black finish blend elegantly into any environment, while the built-in speaker system provides rich, stereo sound. The RG-1F’s bonus features — including its USB media features and skill-building functions — give this instrument more depth than meets the eye.

  • - Piano Designer feature allows customization of sounds (resonance, hammer noise, etc.)
  • - PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement
  • - Streamlined mini-grand body with a lid that can be opened and closed (73cm depth, 75kg weight)
  • - High-impact Satin Black finish with gold-cuffed legs

SuperNATURAL Piano

The RG-1F is enhanced with Roland’s breakthrough SuperNATURAL Piano technology. Three key elements are dramatically improved: velocity response, note decay, and key-range behavior. Where previous sample-based technology created coarse “stair-step” gaps in velocity and key range, and unnatural looping in note decay, SuperNATURAL bridges the gaps with perfectly smooth and natural three-dimensional sound and response.

Streamlined Design

At just 73cm deep, the RG-1F boasts a streamlined mini-grand shape with a classy lid that can be opened and closed. Its front panel is cleanly designed and inviting to use. The gorgeous Satin Black finish blends beautifully with any room.

PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement

The PHA III Keyboard with Escapement offers maximum comfort, playability, and response. PHA III improves key repetition and perfectly conveys dynamic, velocity-based tonal changes. The escapement mechanism recreates the authentic “click feel” of a grand-piano keyboard, which particularly enhances expression when playing pianissimo. The keyboard also features Roland’s acclaimed Ivory Feel — a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping from perspiration during performance. The authentic coloration of grand-piano keys can also been seen on the sides of the white keys.

Progressive Damper-Action Pedal

The RG-1F features Roland’s new Progressive Damper Action pedal mechanism, which closely replicates the pedal response of acoustic pianos. When you first start to depress the damper pedal it offers lighter resistance, but as you depress it further, the resistance increases just as it would on an acoustic piano when the dampers start to move up from the strings. This new design also enables more accurate “half-pedaling” response, where the depth of the damper pedal allows subtle control of the decay of the tone. Thus, the Progressive Damper Action Pedal offers the sensitive and expressive pedaling response required by the most demanding pianists.

USB Media Features

Play along with your favorite songs by simply inserting an industry-standard USB key or optional USB CD drive. The RG-1F’s flexible file compatibility enables playback of WAV files and Standard MIDI Files through the built-in stereo speaker system.

Fall-Safe Lid

The RG-1F’s lightweight lid is easy to open and close. It’s equipped a lid lock to protect to the lid from closing accidentally.
