Become king of the stage.

The RD-800 was designed for fast, effortless operation while playing on stage. Live Sets allow you to store prepared setups including tone layers, keyboard split points, effects, and much more for quick recall via dedicated buttons while performing. For those times when you need to call up and modify sounds on the spot, it’s a breeze to dial things in quickly. The panel features a logical layout and dedicated controls, and it’s extremely simple to accomplish essential tasks such as selecting and layering tones, setting split points and adjusting effects. The color LCD provides an inviting interface for manipulating parameters in any lighting condition, and all panel knobs have LED indicators that make it easy to see current settings on dark stages.

Authentic grand piano sounds designed for the stage
The RD-800 features a large selection of grand piano sounds to suit any style, from solo performing to ensemble playing. There are 5 acoustic piano types and 34 variations to choose from, including a new Concert Grand tone derived from Roland’s flagship V-Piano Grand which features enhanced presence for cutting through in live situations. A newly developed upright piano is also provided, offering the unique short decay and up-close sound of a traditional upright instrument. Powered by Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL® Piano engine, the RD-800 delivers a truly authentic acoustic piano experience with seamless tonal color changes, natural note decay, and authentic key range behavior.

Customize piano sounds to suit a performance venue or your personal style
With the RD-800, you have an incredible amount of control to shape any piano sound to your liking. The onboard Piano Designer lets you easily adjust overall tonal elements with familiar piano-oriented parameters such as string resonance, key-off resonance, hammer noise, and many others. Even deeper control is available with Individual Note Voicing, which allows you to adjust the pitch, level, and tonal character independently for all 88 notes. In addition to personal tone shaping, this unique voicing option is also useful for balancing the overall piano sound to perfectly suit the venue you’re performing in. When a SuperNATURAL Piano tone is selected, the Tone Color knob is automatically assigned to control the sound width, allowing you to easily adjust the output from full stereo to mono to suit any situation. Of course, all your custom settings can be stored as Live Sets for instant recall during your performances.

Vintage electric piano tones reproduced to perfection
In addition to authentic acoustic pianos, the RD-800 includes a variety of newly enhanced SuperNATURAL-based electric pianos representing classic instruments from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. You can select among 5 types and 56 variations, and then fine-tune a sound in great detail with parameters like mechanical key on/off noise, key off resonance, damper noise, and many others. With the Tone Color knob, you can even morph seamlessly between two different electric piano models or tones to create all-new sounds. Great effects are available for enhancing your EP sounds, including a number of tremolo variations, an authentic phaser, and an amp simulator (with several speaker types) to achieve accurate vintage distortion characteristics.

Set your inspiration free with unparalleled touch response
If you’re looking for the finest keyboard action available in a stage piano, the RD-800 is an easy choice. Roland’s new flagship PHA-4 Concert Keyboard with Escapement and Ebony/Ivory Feel includes the latest touch-detection technology, allowing you to fully explore the deep tonal potential of the SuperNATURAL-powered acoustic and electric pianos. With high-resolution sensing and lightning-fast response, the PHA-4 accurately translates into sound the subtlest differences in tone from different playing styles and dynamics. Additionally, the keys are finished with specially developed materials that have moisture-absorbing properties, providing the natural texture and tactile sensation of real ivory and ebony keys on a fine acoustic grand.

Additional sounds for maximum versatility on stage
Going far beyond piano tones, the RD-800 offers an enormous variety of additional sounds to expand your versatility for live gigs. With over 1,100 tone variations available, you’re sure to find just the right sounds to suit any genre or performing situation. 10 different Virtual Tone Wheel organs are on board, as well as a SuperNATURAL-based clav, a wide range of vintage keyboards, and up-to-date synth sounds for modern music styles. The RD-800 also includes powerful master MIDI keyboard features for playing and controlling external sound sources on stage or in the studio.

Studio-quality effects with real-time controls
Included in the RD-800 is a large selection of simultaneous effects with dedicated real-time controls for processing and enhancing your sounds as you play. Rich ambience is available with the reverb and delay effects, while the Modulation FX section offers a choice of 56 diverse effects types. The Tremolo and Amp Simulator section includes a number of tremolo and amp types for electric pianos, a rotary effect for authentic organ tones, and more. There’s also a dedicated five-band equalizer for shaping your sound, and four controls that can be assigned to control a variety of parameters of your choosing. In addition, the unique and powerful Tone Color knob allows you to dramatically alter many sound aspects optimized for different tone categories with a single control, such as widening or narrowing the stereo image, morphing between two different sounds, or boosting the presence to cut through a dense mix.

  • Roland tops the amazing RD700NX with the RD800

    As reviewed by MSC MSC on 3/11/2014

    First off, I loved my roland RD700NX for many years. No digital piano is perfect but the RD700NX was near perfect for me with a few cons. Well, the RD800 completely knocked my cons off the list. I wanted improved action, sound, features, and lighter weight and the RD800 delivered it perfectly. I have had it now for 10 days and could not be more pleased. 70% of my work is studio and the other 30% is live performance. I depend on both for income and the RD800 is my perfect tool to achieve it all. Not only do I have all the sounds of the NX but many more, MUCH better editing functionality, electric and acoustic pianos are stellar, and the new touch of the PHAIV is quiet and extremely controllable which is ideal for my studio work. Again, no digital piano is perfect, but the RD800 is just a hair away from perfection designed for the serious professional musician.

  • Been Waiting A Long Time!

    As reviewed by second baptist church on 10/30/2014

    I have been making music for a living since 1972. I have waited and waited for the keyboard to be everything that the RD-800 is. Thank you Roland! The 800 is a pleasure to play. Great sound, great feel. I am heavy into Hammond so that makes me wish that there was actually a physical drawbar section to work with because the Hammond sound on the RD is really good. I do have my Hammond XK-3c for that though. Special thanks to Scott Piatt at Guitar Center for recommending this keyboard and putting one at my finger tips. ;)Get the keyboard! You will love it! Best price I found was at GC!
