  • New 'baby' Rolands



    As reported in this thread - http://organforum.com/forums/thread/49759.aspx- there are two new baby Rolands on the way.The prototypes are doing the rounds at the UK Spring electronic organ festivals to guage public reaction. Looks like they will export them, then. No prices yetbut they do look interesting. Small size footprint and real organ sounds from properdrawbars. If they get the other things right, I think they'll do well and it may kick a spark of life back into an otherwise pretty dead market for new organs, maybe tempt a few people away from higher end keyboards.</P>

    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      Oh yes, we still have several in the Spring and again in the Autumn. It is quite amazing, but the following is still there.</P>


      Mind you, at one time, when I was with Kawai, I'd spend most of the Spring and Autumnatmany ofthe organ festivals, often back to back. Hardly every home!</P>

        Hey Andy,</P>


        What is a baby Roland? Is it a range of organs with less equipment than the Ateliers? Will there be a 25 pedal model? Just curious. </P>

          There's a link in the original post, Mark. The site's in Japanese, but they are small Ateliers, but with real drawbars. Both have 20 note spinet pedalboards. Can't see much difference in them apart from the cabinet, but I'll find out when I catch up with them for review.</P>

              Thanks for the link. That AT500 looks interesting enough, no doubt there will be a600 or 700to complete the line-up. Good to see that Mr K at Roland is keeping the instrument alive and kicking with these new models. Let's hope they sell well.</P>
