Detailed Look At Roland FP 30 Features

Keys

Roland FP 30 features the 88 weighted note GHA (Graded Hammer Action) for standard keyboard and it has a very authentic piano touch with ivory feel keys.

FP 30 does not need any tune up or anything else. You can start playing it right out of the box.


I suggest when purchasing Roland FP 30 keyboard opt for "Roland FP 30 bundle {complete bundle}" because the standard bundle does not comes with keyboard stand or sustain pedals.

Speakers

The powerful onboards speakers of FP 30 give it a very clear and impressive sound.


However if you don’t want to disturb your family members or you are playing the keyboard in the most creative hour (3 A.M) than the headphone option is the thing you need.

Connectivity

Roland FP 30 Connectivity Options

FP 30 also has USB capabilities making it easy to use in studios and in production environments.


When looking at the price I can say you can also install FP 30 in your classroom to teach and keep your student updated with everything new.


When saying about class, the feature that most needed in the classrooms are the twin piano mode. Twin piano mode is a great option because it let student and teacher play side by side in the same octave ranges.


When using the twin mode the keyboard gets divided into left and right sections with middle C located at the center of each section.

That's all from Our End. 

Till Then

Keep Playing and Spread Love.
