Roland DP603 PHA-50 Plastic + Wood Hybrid Keys

Roland PHA50 action

 

PHA-50, which is Roland’s best key action yet, is included in DP603. The combination of plastic and wood makes the DP603 look more natural, The escapement feature integrated in the PHA-50 will make players feel the action of an actual piano, because the wood parts will vibrate. It also feels natural when sliding the keys.

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

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 Home-service Warranty

moving piano

Image from shutter-stock (Volodymyr Tverdokhlib)

Digital pianos are not so big compared to acoustic pianos, but they are still heavy and take some volume. When your digital piano malfunctions, even if you have a warranty, you’ll have to bring your digital piano to the nearest service agency. The service agency could be a few hundred miles away, you could be living alone, or you could not have a big enough car for your piano. Roland provides home service warranty so you don’t have to do any hassle when your DP603 malfunctions. A technician will visit your home and fix the problem. Roland offers 5 years of parts + 2 years of labor warranty for DP603.

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.

roland-dp603-bluetooth

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

Kawai ES8 RHIII action

Kawai ES8 RHIII

RHIII is Kawai ES8’s special action that has ‘let off’ feature, also known as ‘escapement’ that enables players to feel real grand piano touch, plus it has counter weight underneath every button which balances the weight of middle and back of the keys. This feature that Kawai ES8 has cannot be found in this price-range easily.

*Escapement –  the mechanism that allows the hammer to clear the string after striking, so that the string can vibrate (TheFreeDictionary). Player can feel tactile feeling of notch when presses a key.

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).

Even though Yamaha YDP 163 does not have screen (still, intuitive controls) but Yamaha provides an app called Digital Piano Controller, which allows users for easier and more precise control like diving exact point of split function.

Yamaha YDP 163 Pedals

Yamaha YDP 3 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.

Yamaha YDP 163’s all 3 pedals are grand piano’s pedals.

Sound | with Pure CF engine sound, Yamaha YDP 163 can simulate 3 grand piano sounds including CFIIIS, 2 E-pianos, harpsichord, vibraphone, pipe organ, jazz organ, and strings. 192 polyphony of YDP 163 enables players to experience dynamic and responsive sound. The synthesis of Yamaha YDP 163’s powerful dual speakers and meticulous sound sampling will give the best playing experience to players.

Touch | Yamaha YDP 163 has 88-key weighted hammer action. It has similar system as an acoustic piano in that higher pitched keys are lighter than lower pitched keys. YDP 163 has new GH3 key sensor, which is more sensitive and acoustic-like than its’ before model YDP 162.

Layer (Dual layer) | With this technique, you can play two different sounds simultaneously on one key. You will be able to play ‘piano and string’ sound or ‘piano and organ’ sound simultaneously on one key. You will be able to make the performance more beautiful and will give you more enjoyment.

Yamaha YDP163 layer


Duet Mode | You can divide the keyboard into two separate keyboards with the same chromatic scale. This is will become similar to playing two different pianos; it is fit for performance or a lesson between a student and a teacher.Yamaha YDP163 duetmode


Split | You can play two different instrument sounds on each hand within a keyboard. For example, left hand can play vibratone, right hand can play piano; it gives effect of one person playing two different instrument sound.Yamaha YDP163 split

Transpose Function | You can easily harmonize with different instruments.

Yamaha EcoConserve Energy| In standby mode, the product consumes less power. Instrument turns off automatically after certain time when it was turned on by mistake or left on.

Other| Yamaha YDP 163 includes recording, metronome, USB function, 50 Greats for the piano music book, optional wireless adapter(can connect to smart devices to use app), and it has an OUT IN plug that can connect to another speaker. Yamaha YDP 163 also has USB function that connects to computer to do composition.


Option| Yamaha YDP 163 comes with piano, cabinet stand, A/C adapter, 3 pedal and 4-legged bench

FP30 used

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).
