Roland launches the C-30 Digital Harpsichord

While producing centuries-old harpsichord sounds, the Roland Classic Series C-30 Digital Harpsichord uses digital technology to enhance playability and expressiveness, say Roland. Whether you are a virtuoso or a novice, the C-30 will definitely interest you if you're into harpsichords or looking for that particular sound.

Taking up little space, the styling of the C-30 is modeled on the virginal, an ancient rectangular type of harpsichord. With an authentic wooden cabinet and a mahogany finish, the period styling is enhanced by stained glass on the stand, and the decorative panel on the keyboard lid. From a range of optional alternatives, you can create the look you desire by customizing the stained glass and keyboard lid decoration.

The digital C-30 doesn’t need tuning. And you can simply switch the pitch between Baroque (415 Hz) and Versailles (392 Hz). If, for ensemble playing, you need to match the C-30 to other instruments, fine pitch adjustments can be made. You can take the C-30 with you to group rehearsals and live performances: the compact C-30 can be made portable by removing the legs and stand. You can easily transport the unit (25 kg) and stand (13 kg) in a standard-size car.. Even if the temperature and humidity vary, you can be sure that the pitch will remain accurate because it’s digital.

Use the reverb knob to add authentic resonance as if you were playing in a hall, church, or salon.
  • Use the tone knob if you want to adjust the brightness of the sound.
  • You can use the standard damper pedal to switch between two sound sets. When playing you can switch between the sounds of two different instruments or, as with a dual-manual harpsichord, you can change the string combination phrase by phrase.
