Roland DP603 Review & Comparison & Best Price

Roland DP603/ Roland DP603 Review/ Roland DP603 Best Price/ Roland DP603 Comparison & Function – digitalpianobestreview.com

Roland DP603 polished ebony

Looking for a  mid-ranged price slim & modern furniture-style piano? Here, we are proud to introduce to you the Roland DP603 with the latest piano technology. This piano is perfect for both beginner and advanced players, and for both home and church. The DP603 has very similar specifications to the Roland HP603, but Roland released it with a much cheaper price. Unlike other companies, Roland has implemented the best and latest features in the mid-price ranged pianos like the DP603. The DP603 has bluetooth 4.0, the latest PHA-50 hybrid action, escapement, strong speakers, 3D ambience, power consumption efficiency, and unlimited polyphony.

Here, listen to the mellow sound of Roland Dp603.

Roland DP603 PHA-50 Plastic + Wood Hybrid Keys

PHA-50, which is Roland’s best key action yet, is included in DP603.

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).

Roland DP603 Pedals

Grand pianos have 3 pedals:                                                                                                    -Damper (sustain) – located on the right, takes damper off the keys to make sound to resonate.

-Una Corda (soft) – located on the left, changes the volume of tone and timbre of sound.

-Sostenuto – located on the middle, sustain selected note(s) while other notes are not sustained.

And most upright pianos do not have Una Corda and Sostenuto pedals, they have half blow pedal and practice pedal instead:

-Half blow – This pedal is similar function as Una Corda but it is mechanically different because instead of hammers move aside to hit less string, hammers go closer to the strings.

-practice (muffler, mute) – This is completely different than Sostenuto pedal because this pedal just places a felt-fabric curtain between the hammers and string to make smaller sound.

Roland DP603’s 3 pedals are grand piano’s pedals.

Roland DP603 Physical Modeling vs. Ordinary Sampling

Instead of recording each key with different velocity (sampling), Roland came up with a computerized algorithm to produce the natural sound of piano called “physical-modelling”. This means that players are able to express even intricate details with the DP603. It can simulate the different resonances from different piano voices since they all have different materials and design.

Roland DP603 3D Ambience

When playing alone with headphones, the 3D ambience function will make players feel like the sound of the piano is resonating all around them, as if they are playing piano at a studio or concert hall.

On board lesson function| Roland DP603 has over 300 songs in the system for players to listen, repeat (loop), and master.

Roland FP 30

Roland FP 30 Black

Roland FP 30

Roland FP 30 White


Many people dream about having an affordable but quality digital piano. Digital piano that is stable is enough to use it at home or stage, and light enough to carry. With modernity, variety of features, design, sound, and key action… this new Roland FP 30 provides the players everything they need. Roland FP 30 is expected to be a new dark horse in the budget digital pianos field because of its cheap price but high-end functions like Bluetooth 4.0, ivory key surface, and escapement feeling. We are very excited about the release of Roland FP 30, players will be able to enjoy advanced features with minimum spending.

We recommend this piano to:

-beginner player who wants a piano that can last long without feeling flimsy.

-intermediate player who wants a piano that has features from grand piano.

-advanced player who wants a casual, but quality piano.


Basic video guides from Roland:


Roland FP 30 Touch

– Roland FP 30 has impressive 88 keys, PHA-4 graded weight hammer action which has escapement feeling that replicates grand piano touch, no other digital pianos that are in similar price range have this escapement feature. Roland FP 30 also has ivory key surface, it absorbs moisture from fingers, thus improves playability. Compared with its previous model F 20, Roland FP 30  has 2 more levels of key touch (5 total), and better sound. Comparing Roland FP 30 with other old FP models, FP 30 has better key action and cheaper price. Roland FP 30 has better key sensor and key action than other products that are more expensive than FP 30.

*Escapement –  the mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the string after striking, so that the string can vibrate (TheFreeDictionary).

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

Roland Juno DS88 Review & Best Price

Roland Juno DS88 / Roland Juno DS88 Price / Roland Juno DS88 Compare Sound & Function —Digital Piano Best Review..

Roland Juno DS88 main

Roland Juno DS88 is one of the bestselling synthesizer.
Many people are aware of the excellent technology of Roland digital pianos.
They are also aware that, Rolands are way more valuable due to its high quality compared to other brands. (Also Available is JUNO-DS61 for 61 keys)
Roland Juno DS88 is made for musicians who search for synthesizers with brilliant value with exceptionally good prices.

Speaker quality and keyboard quality also became upgraded. If your budget is around the middle range and if you have experienced Rolands, then you would most likely consider actually purchasing this item. Trust me, this is a good buy.
Roland Synthesizers are the best as a digital instrument. Also, Roland Juno DS88 has the best function and technology way more than its price has to offer.
If you have at least used any other synthesizers in the past, you will acknowledge Roland Juno DS88 out of other synthesizers within the same price range.

Roland Juno DS88 is a modern unique synthesizer with prestige and various functions that can provide enjoyment in performance.
Roland Juno DS88 is also recognized because Roland Juno DS88 have escapement technology with in the keyboard all the sounds and functions from the previous Juno-DI and newly updated sound presets.
You will not be able to find other synthesizers at these bargain price that gives you the “click-feel” of Escapement.
Many in-store shoppers acknowledge the weight of the keyboard and as they play the Roland Juno DS88 , they acknowledge it once again.
Nonetheless, Roland Juno DS88 is a modern-style home digital piano. Roland Juno DS88 does not take up that much space.
If you lack space to keep a piano but still want a digital piano that is same size as an acoustic piano with 88-weighted key, then I strongly recommend the Roland Juno DS88.

Sound — Roland Juno DS88 also has over 1200 preset memories with more than 256 user memories.
Roland Juno DS88 will express all your performance realistically and meet your needs.
Roland Juno DS88 will meet the standard and even exceed the satisfaction of the performer but it will realistically express the performance as is.

These numerous sound of Roland is sampled from the very best sources including the sound of Steinway piano.
Thus, Roland Juno DS88 has ample sound of clarity and depth. Honestly, not everyone is satisfied with sound sources of Roland Juno-DS88
Sound is a personal preference and if they want a clear sound then it is understandable.
However, fans of Roland products say that harmonic connection between lower to higher pitched sounds are well balanced.
Most Roland fans in-store are usually music majors and performers of classical music.

Compared to the number of hotkeys, it has vast amount of different sound types. You can play it comfortably with the 128 Polyphony.
Roland Juno DS88 even has a slot for expansion sets.
Roland Juno DS88 has realistic sound with great rhythm pattern grouping as well, meeting your sampling and producing needs.

Touch —— As stated above, Roland Juno DS88 has weighted keys that have ivory feel which is made to prevent slipping of the finger.
Roland Juno DS88 has 88 weighted hammer actions which makes low-pitched keys heavier and makes the weight of the keys lighter as pitch gets higher.
Action of the keys is acknowledged all over the world.
To emulate realistic grand piano it is made with “click-feel” which is called escapement.
Roland Juno DS88 made of 88 Key Ivory Feel-G with Escapement.
You will feel like you are playing an acoustic grand piano.
You can control touch-sensitivity to your own preference for performance.
It’s hard to know the pros of Roland keyboard just by pressing on the keys.
Play the actual Roland Juno DS88 piano when you have a chance; you might even become a fan of Roland afterwards.
Roland’s keyboard is great for multi-purpose use.
If you have not experienced advanced Rolands, then I strongly recommend experiencing it.
Roland Juno DS88 has the best keyboard action compared to other digital pianos within the same price range and I proudly recommend the Roland Juno DS88.
