5 Reasons Why You Need A Roland HP601
1. Affordable wooden keys (PHA50)
Part of the enjoyment that comes from playing an acoustic piano lies within the keys. There’s just something wonderful about playing weighted keys that have been expertly produced. The feel and response is simply unmatched – until now that is. The Roland HP601 provides this beautiful response to your touch and superior note sensitivity thanks to ultra-responsive sensors built-in.
In addition, the keys themselves are crafted from a combination of wood and durable moulded materials which provide an extremely accurate Ebony and Ivory Feel but a far superior durability. These keys also have an escapement feature which offers incredible response to your playing – it’s almost exactly like having an acoustic piano at your fingertips. When combined with the SuperNATURAL sound engine – you’ll struggle to tell the difference! Which brings me to my next point…
2. SuperNATURAL Sound Engine
The coveted Roland SuperNATURAL sound engine covers a vast dynamic range, providing superior tonal qualities that other digital home pianos simply can’t offer. This sound engine sounds and responds exactly the way an acoustic home piano would. The notes interact with each other to show off the sympathetic string resonance – giving a rich, natural sound.
3. Over 300 sounds & over 350 ready to play songs
The Roland HP601 features a world of sounds at your fingertips, over 300 in fact! You have world class, beautifully reproduced grand piano sounds, electric pianos, organs, strings, woodwinds and an entire studios worth of other keyboard sounds.
In addition, you have 350 onboard songs to challenge players of all levels. You can use this in conjunction with the free Piano Partner 2 App which encourages learning piano and makes practice fun. There are classical masterpieces built-in to the HP601 from the likes of Beethoven and Mozart along with famous piano etudes from such greats as Hanon and Czerny – and that’s just scratching the surface.
4. Bluetooth MIDI AND Audio
The Roland HP601 also includes Bluetooth wireless connection to your smartphone and tablet so you can use it with music learning apps. You can also stream music wirelessly from your device and utilise the HP601’s high quality speakers to jam along to tracks or just listen to music.
