To an observer, it’s an object of beauty for the eyes and ears. To a pianist, it sings to the heart and soul of an artist. To Roland’s master designers, the RG-3F is a mini grand that reflects the look, touch, and sound of tradition while boasting the most advanced SuperNATURAL Piano technology on the market. Simply, this instrument is exquisite. Its top-of-the-line PHA III Ivory Feel Keyboard with Escapement provides true grand-piano feel and response, while the four-speaker built-in sound system provides rich, powerful sound. Perfect for homes, hotels, restaurants and environment that can benefit from a great-sounding, great-looking piano, the RG-3F is beautiful, easy to position in any room, and attractively priced.
The RG-3F is enhanced with Roland’s breakthrough SuperNATURAL Piano technology. Three key elements are dramatically improved: velocity response, note decay, and key-range behavior. Where previous sample-based technology created coarse “stair-step” gaps in velocity and key range, and unnatural looping in note decay, SuperNATURAL bridges the gaps with perfectly smooth and natural three-dimensional sound and response.
The RG-3F’s PHA III Keyboard with Escapement offers maximum comfort, playability, and response. PHA III improves key repetition and perfectly conveys dynamic, velocity-based tonal changes. The escapement mechanism recreates the authentic “click feel” of a grand-piano keyboard, which particularly enhances expression when playing pianissimo. The keyboard also features Roland’s acclaimed Ivory Feel — a comfortable and realistic moisture-absorbent material that prevents slipping from perspiration during performance. The authentic coloration of grand-piano keys can also been seen on the sides of the white keys.
Gorgeous in every detail, the RG-3F is an upscale instrument that will compliment any environment. The polished ebony finish is stunning, and the newly designed, dark brown soundboard enhances the premium look. Just as in acoustic grand pianos, the RG-3F’s fallboard reflects the performer’s hands as they play. Adding to the elegance is the cleanly designed front panel — inviting, clear, and easy to use.
The RG-3F delivers a rich, realistic acoustic grand piano sound with its onboard 4-speaker sound system. Volume issues are a thing of the past; you can simply adjust the volume of the internal sound system up or down to suit the environment. If you wish to practice in private, the RG-3F offers a headphone output as well.
The RG-3F features Roland’s new Progressive Damper Action pedal mechanism, which closely replicates the pedal response of acoustic pianos. When you first start to depress the damper pedal it offers lighter resistance, but as you depress it further, the resistance increases just as it would on an acoustic piano when the dampers start to move up from the strings. This new design also enables more accurate “half-pedaling” response, where the depth of the damper pedal allows subtle control of the decay of the tone. Thus, the Progressive Damper Action Pedal offers the sensitive and expressive pedaling response required by the most demanding pianists.
Load any Standard MIDI File or audio (.wav) file into the RG-3F and enjoy as your favorite songs play back automatically. The RG-3F is equipped with a USB port that can be used to input .wav and Standard MIDI Files via USB memory key. In addition, you can connect an external CD-ROM drive, sold separately, and play back songs from CD.
The RG-3F’s lightweight lid is easy to open and close. The height of the lid can be adjusted to two positions, and lid locks are built-in to protect to the lid from closing accidentally.
