Great Piano Sound

Roland’s acclaimed digital-piano technology makes the RP101 a standout in its class, offering a superb grand-piano sound with true-to-life piano resonance and brilliance. The RP101 is touch responsive to the subtlest pressure and nuance — from the deepest, most powerful bass to the most delicate highs.

PHA Alpha II Keyboard

The RP101 is equipped with Roland’s new PHA alpha II (Progressive Hammer Action alpha II), a hammer action keyboard with excellent finger response and sensitivity. As you play from the bottom of the keyboard to the top, you’ll feel a subtle change in resistance, just as you would on an acoustic piano.

Space-Saving Cabinet

Its attractive, space-saving cabinet ensures that the RP101 will look great and fit into practically any room or space. Add a touch of “piano elegance” to your home without the cost or physical constraints of a traditional piano.

Excellent Extras

The RP101 is designed to make your piano-playing experience enjoyable and convenient. A headphone hook is provided for easy storage and retrieval of headphones — great for those who prefer private practice. And when it comes to practicing, the RP101’s built-in song recorder is a great way to capture your performances and play them back, so you can more efficiently chart your progress.

Built-in Sound System

Equipped with its own convenient built-in stereo speaker system, the RP101 delivers rich, sparkling sound without requiring additional amplifiers or speakers. The volume of this piano is completely under your control — from whisper soft to full power.
