The Roland RD-300NX is a world-class stage piano, inheriting many of the amazing features from its big brother the Roland RD-700NX as well as incorporating the newly developed Ivory Feel-G keyboard for a seriously natural action and touch, with an impressively light weight (17.5kg). The Roland RD-300NX includes Roland's acclaimed superNATURAL piano sound engine, superNATURAL based E. Piano sounds and a unique Sound Focus feature.
The RD-300NX's acoustic-piano sounds are derived from Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. With SuperNATURAL Piano technology, three essential elements are dramatically improved - velocity response, note decay, and key-range behaviour - resulting in smooth, natural sound and response. For EP lovers, the RD-300NX contains an E. Piano based on SuperNATURAL technology that meticulously models classic vintage EPs.
Ivory Feel-G Keyboard
The newly developed Ivory Feel-G keyboard incorporates Roland's most advanced sensor, escapement mechanism, and Ivory Feel features. The keyboard provides the superior touch and sensitivity of Roland's flagship keyboards, in a compact and lightweight design... a great benefit for gigging musicians who want to travel light.
Unique Sound Focus
The innovative Sound Focus feature ensures that every note will be heard, even subtle pianissimo passages. Based on SuperNATURAL phase-correction technology, this essential feature ensures that the RD-300NX won't get lost in the mix, penetrating through walls of sound without compressing or colouring the tone. Players can relax and play naturally, achieving presence onstage without sacrificing dynamics and sound quality.
The popular One Touch Piano concept from previous RD-series pianos has been carried over the RD-300NX as well. The handy feature provides instant access to essential piano and E. Piano sounds and setups with dedicated one-touch buttons. In addition, the popular and powerful Piano Designer feature has been included in the RD-300NX feature set, letting you build custom pianos quickly and easily on the graphic LCD. And finally, for keyboardists who desire a true grand-piano pedalling experience onstage, an optional RPU-3 triple-pedal unit can be added.

A friend of mine let me use this for a gig I was playing as he was on before me and I really liked the look of it. At first impression I thought the keys were a tad TOO heavy and I thought I mightn't be able to really go all out on it. I think it was quite new at the time so this may have been the reason, however, it was absolutely wonderful to play. The diversity of the many, many voices it has were fantastic too. You can find a sound to fit anything. I play in a 14-piece jazz, funk, drum and bass, hip-hop fusion band so this is a big help. The price is great for what this beautiful machine is capable of. The one down side to this instrument, though, is that it is incredibly heavy. It's not impossible to lift and it functions as a stage piano for sure, although it is an issue and something to consider before buying.

Remember that you will external amplification in the form of a PA or keyboard amplifier, as the RD300NX does not have internal speakers.
