It might be the most affordable piano in Roland's HP range, but the entry-level HP504 will still make your head turn. Available in rosewood or contemporary black, the HP504 is a modern classic, with an elegant, understated look that brings a touch of class into your home.
The SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine found in all Roland pianos has been enhanced further for the HP504 with a Dynamic Harmonic feature for fortissimo playing, while the new PHA-4 Premium Keyboard with Escapement and Ivory Feel includes the latest touch-sensing technology to fully explore SuperNATURAL Piano's rich tonal variations and natural dynamics.
One of the major benefits of digital pianos is that you can use headphones, so you don't interrupt others while you practise. Most pianos don't take this into account though, and the sound you hear from the headphones can be dull and uninspiring - not ideal, as you'll probably use headphones often. But now with the HP504 you'll enjoy the unique sound field of an acoustic piano during your private practice sessions, thanks to the Headphones 3D Ambience effect.
There are other benefits of owning a digital piano too. The HP504 never needs tuning and it features a built-in recorder so you can record your playing, and then listen back to evaluate your playing skills. You can connect a USB key containing your favourite songs and listen to them through the HP504's speakers and then play along on top. And if you're bored of a classic grand piano sound, you can play with smooth electric pianos, jazzy organs or majestic strings.
Finally, recognising that even the most devoted piano lover needs a little fun sometimes, the HP504 works with Roland's free iOS piano apps, so it's easy to use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to enhance your learning and have more fun with the piano.
Other features of the HP504-CB include:

Headphones 3D Ambience effect offers a rich, immersive sound experience while using headphones for private practice
