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 and 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 Roland's 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.
