Renowned RD performance

Used by everyone from weekend warriors to top touring pros, Roland RD pianos have been the leading choice of stage musicians since 1986. The RD-08 makes this acclaimed heritage accessible in a budget-friendly instrument with core RD features, along with an upgrade path to expand the instrument’s range whenever the time is right for you.

Premium pianos—and more

Backed by Roland’s SuperNATURAL technology, the RD-08 is filled with dynamic, characterful acoustic and electric pianos for boundless expression on stage and in the studio. You also get a vast selection of organs, synths, strings, and other sounds to tackle any musical style, driven by the same ZEN-Core sound engine found in our latest flagship synthesizers.

Outstanding playability

The RD-08 offers best-in-class playability crafted from over four decades of Roland piano development. The PHA-4 88-note keyboard features weighted hammer action and Ivory Feel keys for an authentic grand feel, realized with innovative design elements that reduce the instrument’s weight without compromising the feel or performance.     

Gig with confidence

Like all RD pianos, the RD-08’s efficient panel keeps you focused on playing and creating. Top-level buttons provide fast access to sound selection, transpose, and other functions, while four multi-function knobs offer hands-on control of layers, effects, EQ, and more. All your keyboard tweaks can be saved within Scene memories, ready for recall with just a touch while performing.

Ready for everything

The RD-08 is an ideal stage piano for active players. The friendly weight and streamlined dimensions make it easy to move, while the rugged build will hold up to years of heavy use. Built-in stereo speakers project rich, room-filling sound, eliminating the need for an external amplifier while practicing at home, playing at rehearsals, and performing in small venues.     

System expansion with the RD-08 Upgrade

The RD-08 is primed to support your ambitions as future performance needs grow. Available with a one-time Lifetime Key purchase on Roland Cloud, the value-packed RD-08 Upgrade complements the factory feature set with a host of new additions:

SuperNATURAL Acoustic Piano 3—An all-new concert piano title from our premium SuperNATURAL Expansion series.

MainStage Support—Seamless integration with Apple’s popular performance software allows you to combine RD sounds with virtual instruments, create zones, and more.
