      Roland FP50 review by Staff member Justin Myerscough

      The Roland FP50 has dramatically improved compared to its predecessors like Roland FP4F FP2 FP3 particularly in the following areas:

      1 - FP50 WEIGHT + DIMENSIONS- 16.5 kg width 1343mm or just under 53 inches ( less than rd300 )

      2 - PIANO SOUND + TOUCH - latest super natural Piano Sample and lovely Ivory feel keyboard.

      3 - SPEAKERS - built in speakers on products like this are typically poor given that the manufacturer is trying not to add to the size and weight but the Roland FP50 has obviously benefitted from advances in speaker design because even though youcan't even see the speakers its a surprisingly full range sound with good definition and pretty good volume .

      4 - STAGE PIANO - Although not officially a stage piano theres no reason that it cant be great at that job with the added benefit of the speakers which could be used for practice purposes or even monitoring at a small gig, I think I would go for this rather than the RD300 myself and save a few pounds in the process !

      5 - BACKING STYLES - The quality of these accompaniment styles is much improved , many of them taken from products like ROLAND Bk5 or BK7M , they can be played keyboard style with a split point or piano style where the whole area of the piano is used for chord recognition, When you press the rhythm button it automatically recognises the chords you play unlike the previous models where they automatically did a set chord progression and you had to go through the menu to change it.
