Roland RD 2000 PHA-50 Plastic + Wood Hybrid Keys

Roland PHA50 action

PHA-50, which is Roland’s best key action yet, is installed in RD 2000. The combination of plastic and wood makes the RD 2000 look more natural, The escapement feature is integrated in the PHA-50, which will make players feel the action of an actual piano, because the wood parts will vibrate. It also feels natural when sliding the keys.

The hammers of grand piano are positioned horizontally and therefore get affected by gravity directly, which enables faster key recovery. Hammers of upright pianos are positioned vertically with springs (jack).
