Roland is celebrating 50 years of being at the forefront of electronics in music with a reimagining of the most recognizable of instruments — the grand piano. Roland asked Japanese furniture company Karimoku to design the piano that carries Roland's keyboard and electronics, resulting in the stunning 50th Anniversary Concept. Karimoku machined the frame from small pieces of Japanese Nara oak wood, mainly used as the raw material for paper. The sweeping shape means that the electronic piano can be repaired if needed, and not simply discarded if it stops working. The 50th Anniversary Concept uses Roland's PureAcoustic Modeling technology, giving it a multitude of sounds from today to Roland's earliest models, along with a multispeaker system that imitates the sounds of the pedals and mechanical keys being pressed. Roland didn't give any word on whether the 50th Anniversary Concept would enter production.
