Play-anywhere portability with full-size 88-note versatility.
Most keyboards make you choose between performance and portability, but Roland’s GO:PIANO88 delivers equally on both fronts. Lightweight and road-ready, with optional battery power and headphones, this mobile instrument has a full-size 88-note keyboard and sounds derived from Roland’s best digital pianos. When you’re learning to play the piano, having 88 keys makes a bigger difference than you'll ever know. Although smaller 61- or 76-note keyboards are portable and easy to handle for younger players, an 88-note full-size keyboard helps you develop the correct technique and become a more expressive player. It lets you play with the correct technique and expression – vital for classical music or more complex pieces.
Roland has also outfitted the GO:PIANO88 with high-quality onboard Bluetooth speakers that hook up to your smartphone to create a simple and compact learning solution. Once connected, you can start exploring free online content that makes learning faster and more fun – including online piano lessons, karaoke and tutorial videos for your favorite songs. You can even just stream your playlists and jam along. Find a space, grab your smartphone, and start your musical journey with GO:PIANO88.
Traditional piano feel with 88 standard-size keys
As stated above, GO:PIANO88 has 88 full-size keys which gives you authentic playing feel and expressive touch inspired by the keyboards on traditional acoustic grand pianos. Having the full range of notes lets you play more demanding music, and helps develop the correct techniques for both left and right hands. It also ensures a smooth transition should you ever get to play on a weighted hammer-action keyboard. And even if you invest in a premium piano, your GO:PIANO88 is the ideal portable instrument for taking with you anywhere in a gig bag for playing at rehearsals, sessions and even shows.
Connect wirelessly to your smartphone, access online content and learn faster
Learning has never been easy for aspiring piano/keyboard players. GO:PIANO88 pairs with your smartphone to make learning piano fun. Use Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet, then access songs from your music library or try some free online lessons. You can play along as the music streams through the high-quality onboard speakers or your headphones. Or, if you’d prefer some more intensive piano training, try some of the many excellent apps or tutorial videos, before you start working with a personal piano teacher.
Enjoy authentic piano performance with a compact, space-saving footprint
Not every home has space for a full-size acoustic piano. But the compact design of GO:PIANO88 lets you play in any setting, with all the benefits of 88 full-size keys. Just sit down, switch on and enjoy GO:PIANO88’s full dynamic range, free from setup hassles or tangled wiring. Plus, to ensure you can practice without disturbing others, GO:PIANO88 lets you plug in headphones to play in peace.
Make music on the move with battery power and a wireless smartphone connection
An acoustic piano ties you to one location, while portable electronic keyboards limit the type of music you can play as they have fewer keys. With GO:PIANO88 and a smartphone, you’re ready to make music whenever inspiration strikes. With its compact 7.5 kg design and battery-powered operation, GO:PIANO88 lets you perform through its speakers or practice with headphones. Plus, with wireless connectivity to your smartphone, you can work on your skills any time, any place – especially as the 88-note full-size keyboard means your technique won’t be compromised.
Get inspired with Roland’s responsive piano sounds
As you appreciate GO:PIANO88‘s 88-note full-size keyboard, you’ll also be inspired by the choice of onboard sounds derived from Roland’s acclaimed premium pianos. Touch the keys and you’ll hear notes full of character, changing seamlessly in response to your touch, just like on a fine acoustic piano. And, alongside the expressive keyboard, GO:PIANO88 lets your dynamics playing style shine through, encouraging you to improve faster as your skills grow. GO:PIANO88 also includes electric pianos, organs and other sounds for exploring different musical styles.
Get more from your practice sessions with onboard learning features
Roland's GO:PIANO88 helps you focus on playing with onboard tools to support your daily practice regime. Try the metronome to build your timing skills or experiment by transposing the keyboard to a different musical pitch. Use the onboard recorder to capture your playing and evaluate your progress. And when you’re ready, connecting your smartphone reveals a world of apps and tutorial videos.
Create high-quality videos with your smartphone and GO:MIXER PRO
With the 88-note keyboard and tuition features, you’ll soon be playing better than ever – and wanting to share your progress with the world. Although recording videos with your smartphone is easy, the built-in mic doesn’t always sound professional. Instead, try plugging your smartphone and GO:PIANO88 into Roland’s GO:MIXER PRO, to directly capture the great sound while you shoot. You can connect additional sources to GO:MIXER PRO as well, including a mic or another keyboard. With the combination of your smartphone, GO:PIANO88 and GO:MIXER PRO, there’s no simpler way to create pro-quality videos for sharing on social media.
