0311 V-Piano Grand

With the introduction of the V-Piano Grand, Roland continues to build upon its legacy of combining state-of-the art digital technology with the organic expressivity of acoustic instruments. Housed in a polished ebony cabinet, the V-Piano Grand provides the unparalleled touch and response of a grand piano, but gives the pianist complete customization of the instrument in a way never before possible. Pianists can change the material the soundboard is made of, the length of the strings, the hardness of the hammers, or the tuning of individual strings, just to name a few. The result is a world-class “stringless” grand piano that responds to each pianist’s individual playing style and character. You have to hear it to believe it.
