Digital piano technology, like today’s computer technology, has advanced greatly in just the last few years. Some models are now blurring the lines between acoustic and digital pianos, or the boundary between real and not-real, like never before. In fact, musical institutions like schools and churches (after decades and decades of piano tunings, action regulations, and expensive repair work) are now actually “going digital.” With the added functionality and no need for tuning, digital pianos make sense for a lot of environments.
Here at Cordogan’s, we have first-hand experience with the dozens and dozens of models from all the top manufacturers; and one piano in particular seems to have crossed the boundary altogether. Meet the digital piano that has been winning over educators and teachers everywhere as the replacement for a traditional studio piano:
The HP-508 gets at the heart of the experience of playing a traditional piano: Touch and Tone. With Roland’s brand-new “PHA-4 Concert” key action, a digital piano has never felt this good. The piano’s huge dynamic range and innumerable levels of expression allows for creativity without limitations. When you combine this with Roland’s ground-breaking SuperNatural sound core, their Acoustic Projection and Dynamic Harmonic software, and the deluxe speaker setup of the HP-508, magical things do happen. This piano is an incredibly enjoyable instrument to play, hear and experience.
