      Roland BK3 Staff Review by Justin Myerscough

      The quality of voices and styles on this instrument are clearly of a higher quality than you would expect for something around the 400 mark, as many of the voices and styles come from the higher priced BK5 and BK7m it makes sense, OK maybe the built in speakers arent fantastic, but there still at least as good as you would expect for this price, its just that the voices and styles are so good that it almost demands that you play them through studio monitors or some decent headphones to do justice to their quality. The features on this keyboard are also beyond what you would expect, in particular playing and recording audio styles, the center cancel feature and file transfer via USB stick are all great features for the price, all in all one of the best value Roland products I have seen in the last few years.

      Established in 1983 A&C Hamilton Musical Instruments maintains a healthy balance of traditional business values with a keen sense for new business ideas. Getting new customers and keeping existing customers are equally important to us. As the internet has changed all our lives we continue to grow from strength to strength applying the tried and trusted methods of traditional retail sales to this new world of internet sales and store sales. The world is a smaller place but we are all still individuals within it. It is so much more fun selling to some one you can have a chat with, either email phone or in the shop than just sending boxes via couriers. Our company has a solid financial basis to trade and all premises are owned in full by the directors.

      Our Music Shop is on the outskirts of Preston with forecourt parking for 8 cars. Our closest town is Blackpool and nearby is Lytham St Annes. Blackburn and Southport are close by. Lancaster, Morecambe, Wigan, Burnley, Ormskirk, Bolton, Leigh, Accrington are also near me. Manchester Liverpool and Cumbria are around an hour away.
