Full-Size 88-Note Piano. Play-Anywhere Portability. Smartphone-Powered Tuition
When you’re learning to play the piano, having 88 keys makes a big difference. 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. 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, so you can play with the correct technique and expression – vital for classical music or more complex pieces. GO:PIANO88 also features 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 – or just stream your playlists and jam along. Find a space, grab your smartphone, and start your musical journey with GO:PIANO88.
Enjoy Traditional Piano Feel with 88 Standard-Size Keys
GO:PIANO88 has 88 full-size keys for authentic playing feel and expressive touch inspired by the keyboards on 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 play a weighted hammer-action keyboard. And even if you invest in a premium piano, your GO:PIANO88 is the ideal portable instrument for slinging in a gigbag and playing at rehearsals, sessions and shows.
Connect Wirelessly To Your Smartphone, Access Online Content and Learn Faster
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 the dynamics of your playing shine through, encouraging you to improve faster as your skills grow. GO:PIANO88 also includes electric pianos, organs, and other sounds so you can explore different musical styles.
Get More from Your Practice Sessions with Onboard Learning Features
GO:PIANO88 helps you focus on playing, with onboard tools that 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.

Authentic Playing Feel and Skill-Building Tools
If you regularly play acoustic drums, you shouldn’t have to change your playing style to use an electronic drum kit. You can use the same playing techniques you’d use on an acoustic kit, without compromise, thanks to the large 12-inch snare* and a natural feeling hi-hat** that can even be mounted on an acoustic hi-hat stand. And being based on the flagship TD-50 sound engine, the sounds faithfully reproduce the character and tone of acoustic drums, with lightning fast response time. PDX-12 12” snare pad included with TD-17KV and TD-17KVX only **VH-10 hi-hats included with TD-17KVX model only
Realistic Pads for Uncompromising Performance
Some electronic kits use much smaller pads than you’d typically find on an acoustic kit, but because the drumstick has to hit the center of each drum, these smaller pads can actually feel further away from you. This is especially true if you’ve moved from playing a 14-inch acoustic snare to an 8-inch rubber pad. The 12-inch dual-mesh PDX-12 snare* is tension-adjustable for authentic and satisfying rebound, while the height of the snare hoop is much closer to that of an acoustic snare so you can hit an open rim shot with a natural stick angle. If you’re serious about drumming, the TD-17 lets your technique shine through without asking you to compromise. PDX-12 12” snare pad included with TD-17KV and TD-17KVX only
Ideal for Perfecting Hi-Hat Techniques
The TD-17KVX comes with the VH-10 V-Hi-Hat which uses a single-cymbal floating design that can be mounted and played on a traditional acoustic hi-hat stand. It provides the same playing feel as an acoustic hi-hat with natural rebound feel and swinging motion of the hi-hat cymbal. It also features open/closed motion and bow/edge sounds for executing traditional playing techniques to perfection. *VH-10 hi-hats included with TD-17KVX model only
Great Sounds Lead To Great Performances
The TD-17’s sound engine delivers a superior drumming experience thanks to Prismatic Sound Modeling technology inherited from the flagship TD-50 sound module. Begin playing and you’ll notice a wider dynamic range and dramatic tonal changes, depending on where and how hard you strike the pad. From rim shots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to dramatic crash hits, sustained cymbal swells, and half-open position on the hi-hats along with different sounds for the bow and edge, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.
The Feel of an Acoustic Kick Drum (But Quieter)
A nice solid kick drum usually comes with a nice loud noise. Sometimes that’s exactly what you want, but your family or neighbors may not feel the same way. The KD-10 kick pad absorbs much of the noise thanks to its rubber cover combined with a dedicated cushion, but retains that satisfying kick drum ‘thud’ when a beater buries into a bass drum head, so it’s ideal for playing at home where loud noise may cause problems. It’s compatible with all standard kick pedals, single or double kick.
Acoustic Drumming Techniques Accepted Here
Although each model in the TD-17 series is compact, they’re all kitted out for professional performance—especially the TD-17KVX which comes with two crash cymbals and the VH-10 hi-hat. Across the entire range, the position and angle of each pad is fully adjustable, while the distance between the pads and the drummer is similar to what you’d find on an acoustic kit.
The Essential Tools to Improve Your Drumming
First thing’s first: drummers should be able to keep a solid beat before moving on to the exciting stuff. But mastering the basics is exciting too, as it provides a solid foundation for building your skills, not forgetting that tracking your progress is highly motivating too. The TD-17 module includes a Coach Mode to support your daily exercise regime. You can warm up, develop your sense of groove, tempo and timing, and even work on your stamina—all with a score that tells you how you’re doing.
