High Class Yet Affordable
This new-concept digital grand is perfect for players who desire high-end piano sound, playability, performance and the look of a classy grand piano.
With a streamlined grand-piano shape, the RG-1 is an elegant addition to any room. It features a lightweight, easy-to-open lid that can be locked while it is opened. The RG-1 is available in a gorgeous Satin Black finish that will complement any space, small or large.
The RG-1 is equipped with Roland’s finest 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano sound in which the distinctive acoustic properties of each key have been captured, to accurately reproduce the subtlety of a full concert grand piano. Your ears won’t believe how true-to-life this piano sounds and responds.
For the most authentic keyboard feel, the RG-1 features Roland’s acclaimed PHA II keyboard with Escapement and Ivory Feel keys, which yields a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper. It also provides lighter resistance for pianissimo passages and stronger resistance for fortissimo. The white keys have a two-piece structure that reduces the surface “click” noise when playing. The newly-developed keyboard surface material is designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel that your fingers will love. The authentic coloration of grand-piano keys can also been seen on the sides of the white keys.
Characteristic “Click Feel” of Grand-Piano Keys
When the keys are pressed slowly, the resistance increases and then suddenly relaxes. The Escapement architecture of the RG-1 keys reproduces the characteristic “click feel” of a grand piano for the ultimate in realistic performance and expression.
USB Media Features
Play along with your favorite songs by simply inserting an industry-standard USB Flash Memory or optional USB CD drive. The RG-1’s flexible file compatibility enables playback of .WAV files and Standard MIDI Files through the built-in stereo speaker system — great for “one-man-band” type performance, or skill-building play-along sessions.
