Roland RP102 Digital Piano, Black
Roland RP-102 Digital Piano, Black
"The RP-102 takes many of the best features from the FP-30, and puts it in a more traditional looking cabinet to stand out in your home. It is the first piano in our range that has a lid and a built-in triple pedal unit, making it more like a high end grand piano. The action has ivory feel, individually weighted keys and even has escapement, again, just like a high end acoustic grand piano. The sound is incredibly expressive, thanks to the amazing SuperNATURAL sound engine and the way it interacts with you as you play. The Bluetooth connectivity is no gimmick, it really sets the keyboard apart from anything in the competition. You can connect to either your iOS or Android Smart Mobile Device to our Piano Partner 2 App, giving you access to 287 additional sounds, interactive lessons and a diary to log your practice. PP2 also gives you virtual control of the keyboard, enabling you to Split, Layer, change Tone, Volume and many other settings. Though it's not designed specifically for this model, Piano Designer App is also compatibile, allowing you to load additional piano tones and customise them to your preference. To top it off, the RP-102 comes with a 3 year Warranty and Lifetime Tech Support with myself." GAK's Roland Product Specialist, James Purvis.

Roland Product Overview
When choosing a piano, it’s essential to find an instrument that suits your lifestyle, budget, and space. The Roland RP102 delivers on all fronts, combining authentic piano performance and onboard practice features in a compact and affordable design. It’s filled with technologies derived from our award-winning premium pianos—including a luxurious and supremely playable weighted-action keyboard—providing inspiring sound and touch that will continually support your music as your skills evolve. And with its streamlined cabinet and three integrated pedals, the RP102 offers a traditional upright look that fits nicely anywhere space is at a premium.
Thanks to its advanced capabilities, the RP102 blends in seamlessly with your modern lifestyle. It never needs tuning or regular maintenance, and includes onboard Bluetooth® technology for connecting with a smartphone or tablet for instant enjoyment and enhanced learning. By wirelessly pairing the piano with Roland’s free Piano Partner 2 App, you can view digital sheet music, interact with backing rhythms, and access various features not available from the panel. The RP102 is an exceptional piano value, at the ready to bring musical enjoyment for years to come.
The RP102 is equipped to inspire music making the instant you get it set up at home. There are over 200 ready-to-play songs at hand, including traditional music, classical masterpieces by Mozart and Beethoven, and famous piano etudes from Hanon and Czerny. There’s also a convenient onboard metronome with variable time signatures, providing an essential tool to develop your sense of timing. If inspiration strikes at midnight, you can plug in headphones and lose yourself in rich, beautiful sound without disturbing family members and neighbors. And when you want to play side by side with a teacher or friend, you can activate Twin Piano mode and split the keyboard into two 44-note pianos, each with their own middle C.
Roland’s free Piano Partner 2 App for iOS and Android mobile devices is the perfect companion for the RP102. Via a wireless Bluetooth connection, it shows digital notation for the piano’s internal songs on your device’s display, and pages even turn automatically as a song plays. You can practice each hand individually by muting the left- or right-hand part, and freely adjust the tempo as needed. The app also provides access to backing rhythms and flash card games that help you build skills with intelligent accompaniment and engaging music exercises.
With its straightforward interface, the RP102 lets you enjoy great piano sound with zero hassle—just press the power button, adjust the volume, and start playing. And if you want to dive into the piano’s deeper features, simply call up Piano Partner 2 App on your favorite mobile device. From the app, you can choose from a variety of piano and non-piano sounds, and even layer any two sounds together. In addition, you can browse the piano’s onboard song library, select songs, and adjust the tempo numerically.
Offering piano sound and touch derived from Roland’s premium digital pianos, the RP102 will continue to inspire as your playing grows and evolves. Our SuperNATURAL technology delivers the rich, expressive tone you’d expect from an acoustic grand piano, while dynamic built-in speakers fill the room with immersive sound. The PHA-4 Standard keyboard inherits the progressive hammer action and Ivory Feel texture of keyboards found in our high-end pianos, and includes advanced sensing technology to take full advantage of SuperNATURAL Piano’s enormous tonal range. This highly responsive keyboard follows every nuance of your developing touch, encouraging deeper levels of expression as your technique improves. The piano’s three pedals are made of metal for an authentic feel, and also support half-pedal control. This technique is required to play more advanced piano pieces, and is not possible on typical entry-level instruments that employ less sophisticated pedal switches.
Acoustic pianos are heavy, costly to maintain, and take up a lot of space. With its modern digital approach, the RP102 is the solution to all these problems and more. It weighs just 84.3 lbs./37.8 kg and is easily moved by two adults, while the space-saving cabinet is about the same width as a 60-inch TV on a stand. What’s more, the advanced digital sound engine never needs tuning, saving you time and money. If you already own an acoustic piano, the RP102 is a great second instrument to place in a spare room for night practice. It’s also perfect for use in lesson studios and school practice rooms, making the RP102 an excellent choice for music educators as well.

Love, love, love it!
Exactly what it says, we love it
We spend a long time to find the right electric piano for my son. The Roland was the best price performance ratio out of all the piano we tried.
