Roland RD-88 Digital Stage Piano

Get classic keyboard sounds onstage without hassle. The Roland RD-88 digital stage piano has a fluid playing feel and a rich library of characterful tones.

Get a look at the Roland RD-88 stage piano in action:

World-class playability

For over three decades, RD pianos have been trusted by professionals, night after night, on stages the world over. One key reason is how playable they are, and how connected you feel when you play one. You get sturdy controls and smooth, reliable keyboard action that feels natural--never stiff, never spongy.

Authentic sounds

A great stage piano needs sounds that are authentic and have character. The RD-88 draws upon its rich heritage and features SuperNATURAL pianos and electric pianos that can go from sparkle to grit with a few knob twists. And for extra versatility, there's a curated selection of acoustic and electronic sounds from our historic legacy using the same sound engine found in our flagship synthesizers.

Refreshingly simple

RD pianos are easy to connect with, thanks to their intuitive controls and friendly layout. The RD-88 is no different, giving you just what you need for confident and expressive performances. Vital controls are clearly marked and always in reach, so you can quickly find your favorite sounds, add effects, or shape the tonal balance to suit the venue.

Integrate soft synths

Sometimes you need a very specific read more sound or the unique capabilities of a particular soft synth or sample library. The RD-88 has three zones that can be configured with internal sounds, or can integrate and control soft synths from Apple MainStage. This makes it simple to duplicate the sound of a track live or mix favorite soft synths with the RD-88's own palette of sounds.

Fits your life

The RD-88's clean and compact design fits neatly into your lifestyle. Its lightweight and sturdy build makes it easy to take with you and quick to set up, even on small stages or in cramped rehearsal spaces. And the room-filling integrated speaker system is ultra-convenient and lets you play with less clutter and less fuss.

I wasted $190 in return shipping to find out that this is NOT a “stage” piano. I would be afraid to take this plastic toy out of the house for fear of breaking any part of it. It’s not even heavy enough to hold itself down evenly on a stand and because of its odd “deeper” dimension, it doesn’t sit at the proper height on your average keyboard stand. Learned a huge lesson on this one! Hope I can spare someone else.
