  • Roland exiting Italy

    Hi,

    It seems that these days, there is much bad news concerning the music industry. As Seamaster posted on another thread, Roland is shutting down it's Italian subsidiary. One can read the Roland communique here, http://www.roland.com/ir/pdf/2013/20131108_3.pdf

    I believe beyond making arranger keyboards, some digital pianos, they also made the Roland classical products such as the Roland C-330, C-380, possibly the Rodgers 558, the digital harpsichord, etc.

    Most likely what will happen is that production of a lot these products will be done in Indonesia, maybe even going to China, but Roland has typically not been big on manufacturing in China.

    In any case, not the best of news.
