The Roland F-20 is the perfect piano for beginners, or those who're looking for a compact digital piano that incorporates Roland's highly acclaimed technological advancements. Offering an ideal base for practising musicians to play on, the F-20 plays host to a wide range of features that makes learning the instrument a joy.
The Roland F-20 includes many features that are often seen in Roland's flagship instruments, such as their exclusive Ivory Feel-G keyboard. This incorporates Roland's unique Progressive Hammer Action design with Escapement, which gives the feel and functionality of a grand piano. Not only does this make the F-20 feel luxurious but it ensures that correct practise can be carried out, therefore technique can be perfected quickly and efficiently. Thanks to Roland's SuperNATURAL Piano engine - offering best-in-class sound reproduction - students can develop their skills by playing a highly responsive instrument that reproduces the nuances in their technique in the same manner as a world-class acoustic grand.
As the F-20 is a digital piano, it has many advantages over traditional acoustic pianos thanks to a range of onboard functions designed to make learning and playing a more enjoyable experience. These include: a metronome function to ensure develop your timing skills; a record/playback feature to focus on any areas that need improvement and a built-in rhythm accompaniment to practise your improvisational skills. The Rhythm feature automatically accompanies you as you play, utilising 32 different accompaniment styles over a wide variety of musical genres, which can be selected using the F-20's panel or via the Piano Partner app. There is a handy Twin Piano mode that divides the keyboard in two, so that two people can play side by side, simultaneously.
The F-20 has a built in sound library that contains a selection of voice options so that different instrument sound can be reproduced such as bass, electric piano, guitar, harpsichord, organ, strings and synthesizer.
Roland's free piano apps allow you to use an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with the F-20, engaging children with interactive programs and play-along songs. The Air Performer app allows you to play along with all your favourite songs from an iOS powered device wirelessly through the F-20's sound system. The Piano Partner iPad app includes Flash Card, an interactive game that challenges you to identify notes that are shown on the iPad's display, by sounding them on the piano with awards given as you progress to encourage and stimulate learning.
Thanks to its compact design, the F-20 can fit comfortably into any home and can be easily moved around the house for easy storage. Sound can be played back through the onboard speaker system or via the headphone output for quiet, private practise. Additionally, the sound can be sent through two output jacks that allow you to connect it to external speakers.
The Roland F-20 comes completed in a stylish dark walnut finish.
