The HP601 is the perfect affordable next step as your skills mature and your love for piano grows. If you need an authentic grand piano sound and playing experience with all the additional advantages of a digital instrument then look no further! Ivory Feel keys and true hammer action touch means this piano responds perfectly to nuanced playing expressions. And once you consider the onboard Roland SuperNATURAL engine, 288-note polyphony and ultra-sensitive PHA-50, Roland’s flagship keyboard, it becomes clear that the HP-601 delivers truly exceptional piano performance. Understanding the interaction between sound and touch is crucial for developing as a player at any skill level so the HP601 has both beginner and advanced pianists covered.
A wealth of practice and educational tools are built into the HP601, with over 350 songs in a variety of styles ready to play along to. And the convenient onboard metronome and recording functions make for extremely useful practice tools. The HP601 connects via Bluetooth to Roland’s Piano Partner 2 app, augmenting the abilities of the instrument with features such as digital notation, backing tracks to play along with, and the ability to track your learning progress with the diary feature.
The HP601 has a variety of customisation options, made possible through the powerful Roland Piano Designer. You can design a truly unique piano tone by customising string resonance, resonance characteristics of the pedals, and tuning, volume and character for each individual note! There’s also a free Piano Designer app available for your mobile device, allowing you to customize your HP601 from a smart phone or tablet.
World-class grand piano sounds aren’t the end of the sound capabilities of the HP-601. Electric piano, organ, strings and woodwind sounds allow you to explore a variety of popular music styles. You can also layer two sounds together, or split the keyboard to play different sounds with each hand.
Whilst the HP601 delivers an authentic grand piano playing experience, you also get the advantages that a digital instrument brings with it. The advanced sound engine needs none of the maintenance or tuning an acoustic piano needs, saving you a lot of time and money. And silent practice is made easy by plugging in a pair of headphones. The HP601 has Roland’s innovative 3D ambience technology built-in, optimising the headphone audio to sound like it’s coming from the piano itself.
Finally, with an affordable price point and Contemporary Rosewood, Contemporary Black and White finishes to choose from, the Roland HP601 truly is one of the best value digital pianos available.
The HP601 has combined Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL piano sound, continuous pedal feature and simulated acoustic resonance. Every nuance of a piano performance can be controlled by the player. Additional features, such as direct audio recording, Bluetooth connectivity, temperament selection, in-built metronome and headphone 3D ambience mean the HP601 is ideal for those players looking for an authentic piano experience.
