Roland FP-10 88-Key Digital Piano (Discontinued in North America)
Gearank High Notes
The Roland FP-10 appeared on our recommended list for Digital Pianos Under $500 from April 2020 until April 2021.
There's no denying Roland's reputation for quality, be it build, sound quality or even playability.
The FP-10 is a great example of this with its 88-note hammer action keybed, adjustable touch sensitivity, and the inclusion of Roland's "SuperNATURAL" sound modeling technology.
And SuperNATURAL is not just about getting the sound right, it's also about getting the feel and dynamics as close to acoustic instruments as possible.
Tone selection and effects are kept to minimum, with just 10 tones, 4 chorus types and 4 reverb types.
This is contrasted by its wide selection of modern connectivity, including USB and Buetooth. You can even make changes to parameters via a smart phone app.
And while this piano is stage and recording worthy, it also comes with student friendly features, one of which is the twin piano mode, which lets the teacher and student play side-by-side in the same octave.
