The Best of Acoustic Tradition. The Height of Modern Tech.

If you need convincing that technology and tradition can coexist, take a seat at the Roland GP609 Digital Grand. This luxurious instrument offers every type of player a sublime grand piano experience, fusing advanced technology and authentic playing feel with classic grand piano cabinet design. Be inspired by an instrument that combines the latest sound engine with a brand-new keyboard mechanism, enhanced multi-channel speaker system and a variety of digital advantages – along with stunning sounds that will spark great performances for years to come.

SuperNATURAL Modeling for Performance That Feels Real

If you’ve played acoustic pianos for years, you might conclude that nothing can recreate that evocative tone and feel. Press a key on the GP609 and reconsider. This latest digital instrument features Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling, replicating the entire sound creation process of an acoustic piano, for a rich, complex tone. You’ll be inspired by a unique keyboard that blends wood and molded materials for great feel and durability, while even the most demanding players using advanced techniques will be satisfied by the expressive Progressive Damper Action pedal.

Luxurious Appearance and Authentic Grand Piano Feel

Although packed with advanced technology, the GP609 is reassuringly traditional when it comes to style. Combining classic lines with a space-saving compact grand piano cabinet, there are two premium finishes available; polished ebony, and polished white.

Premium Grand Piano Feel

Gorgeous in every detail, the GP609 is a high-end instrument that will complement any environment. The polished ebony and white finishes are stunning, and the light brown soundboard further enhances the premium look. Just as with acoustic grand pianos, the GP609’s fallboard reflects the performer’s hands as they play. Completing the elegant look is the understated front panel — inviting, clear, and easy to use.

 

Light-Weight and
Space-Saving Design

Although the GP609 is light-weight (325 lbs 5oz/148 kg) and compact (59-1/8 inches/ 1,501 mm), its grand piano aesthetic is unmistakable. It’s nearly half the weight of an acoustic grand piano too, and much easier to install or move.

Casters

Built-in casters help you move the piano around and find the perfect position, and the space-saving footprint means you can play a grand piano even where there is limited space – whether at home or at a venue.

Advanced Digital Design. Traditionally Elegant Appearance.

Once you’re ready to play the piano, you don’t even need to press the power button to begin – just open the lid and start playing.

Room-Filling Tone from
Specially-Designed Speakers

One of the joys of a traditional acoustic grand is the commanding natural tone and projection. The revelation is that the Roland GP609 achieves the same head-turning effect, thanks to a built-in sound system whose specially designed multi-channel audio technology delivers an immersive spatial sound that appears to come from the very heart of the instrument. Whether you’re playing at home – or in larger venues from restaurants to hotel lounges – you can rely on a powerful, expressive and controllable sound that fills any space.

Expand Your Creative Range

People often play piano along with their favorite songs stored on their smartphone. With built-in Bluetooth® wireless support, the GP609 goes even further by streaming your music through the piano’s powerful internal speakers for an inspiring and immersive experience. Installing Roland’s free Piano Partner 2 app on your tablet lets you learn and enjoy playing piano, without any wires - thanks to Bluetooth technology.

Commercial Use

The grand piano is a refined and majestic instrument with a powerful and expressive tonal character. Its graceful appearance brings an air of classic elegance to any interior – whether at home or at a venue. And yet, although undeniably beautiful, owning an acoustic grand piano is not without challenges. Consider regular tuning and keyboard maintenance costs, as well as the considerable weight which makes it difficult to move around. The GP609 avoids these issues thanks to a variety of digital advantages that make it easy to enjoy a grand piano at a venue – or at home – without the cost or hassle.
