What we think of the new Roland GO:PIANO 88 note digital piano:
Just released for this year, the Roland GO:PIANO88 is a full length, 88 note version of the popular and super portable GO:PIANO. Designed to be portable but still play like a piano, this has a high quality sound engine derived from the HP models along with a fully touch sensitive keyboard. While not weighted, the keys are the same size as piano keys and have an ivory feel covering, making it a great half-way house between a keyboard and a digital piano. It makes for a great starter instrument, and equally an ideal accompanying instrument from the peripatetic teacher to take between schools.
It's very well equipped, with some great sounds including acoustic and electric pianos, organs and many more. To assist with learning it has an on-board song recorder, a metronome and Bluetooth. This can be used to connect to tuition apps on your smart device, or indeed to transform the GO:PIANO into a Bluetooth speaker so you can play along with your favourite songs.Specification:88 note touch sensitive keyboard with ivory feel3 levels of touch sensitivity128 note polyphonyGM2 MIDI conforming10 piano tones 7 E.Piano tones7 organ tones16 other tones including 1 x drum kit and 1 x SFX kitMultiFX, adjustable reverb, chorusDamper resonance on piano soundsAdjustable master tuning 415.3Hz - 466.2HzTranspose -5 - +6 in semitonesOctave shift -3 - +3Adjustable metronomeStandard MIDI file recorder, 99 songs capacityOn-board BluetoothBacklit character LCD display2 x 2.5 watt amplifiersStereo mini headphone jack outputStereo mini jack aux input1/4 inch sustain pedal jackUSB to host portRuns off AC adaptor or 6 x AA batteriesManufacturer warranty: 2 years
