Roland HP-506 Digital Piano Polished Ebony


Building on the features of the HP504 comes the bigger-brother HP506, aimed at everyone from young students to more advanced players. This mid-range HP piano uses the same SuperNATURAL sound engine as the other models in the series, but introduces the Acoustic Projection sound system, PHA-4 Concert-class keyboard and a gorgeous polished ebony colour option.

Most digital pianos use a single pair of speakers to project the sound. And even though this approach is fine for everyday use, those who want an even better sound should try the Acoustic Projection system. The HP506 has four speakers, instead of two, which are positioned so the player is enveloped in a rich, warm sound that’s far closer to an acoustic piano. As you play, you’ll notice the sound coming from where it would in an acoustic piano, making you feel a real connection with the instrument.

The HP506’s keyboard has also been upgraded to our PHA-4 Concert-class. First, it’s highly sensitive and able to capture the most subtle nuances of your playing; we believe that SuperNATURAL pianos offer the most expressive playability of any digital piano, so it makes sense to develop a keyboard to match it. The keys replicate the unique appearance, touch and moisture-absorbing properties of genuine ebony and ivory, and are a world apart from cheaper keyboards that play about as well as they look. The key action is quieter than previous models too, so you won’t disturb others when playing with headphones.

And of course, you also get everything that makes the HP504 so enjoyable to use, including the Piano Designer, 3D Headphones sound, built-in recorder, USB connectivity, free Roland piano apps and no tuning costs.


A DIGITAL PIANO THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN ACOUSTIC
Why should you settle for a digital piano that fails to measure up to its acoustic counterpart? A piano should sound like a piano - a wide dynamic range, full of colour and character, a natural, organic decay, and the power to summon an emotional performance from the player. It all sounds obvious, until you realise that most digital pianos fall well short. Roland’s SuperNATURAL Piano technology brings the piano sound to life and it’s what makes our pianos special.

A PIANO SOUND THAT YOU CAN FEEL AS WELL AS HEAR
Acoustic and digital pianos make sounds in different ways. With an acoustic, it’s all about physical reactions - hammers hit strings, which reverberate through the cabinet to produce the sound. Digital pianos usually have a simple speaker configuration, so the sound is less enveloping. The HP506 uses a four-speaker Acoustic Projection system, with each speaker discretely placed to project the piano's various sound elements from their natural positions. These elements are naturally blended in the air space surrounding you, reproducing the sound field of an acoustic piano with stunning accuracy. It’s rather difficult for a digital piano to sound this realistic. But we’ve cracked it.

A RESPONSIVE, EXPRESSIVE KEYBOARD WITH REALISTIC IVORY/ EBONY FEEL
Whether you’re a beginner or a master pianist, the keyboard is where it all comes together. If you think about how many times you’ll be pressing those keys, you better make sure that the keyboard is comfortable and doesn’t encourage bad habits. When designing our keyboards, our goal is for you to think you’re playing an acoustic piano keyboard. For example, the keys share the look and feel of real ebony and ivory, and their moisture-absorbing properties mean your fingers won’t slide off. Sure, there’s lots of technology involved underneath, but the end result is refreshingly natural. Play one and you’ll agree.

A PIANO THAT ADAPTS TO YOU, NOT THE OTHER WAY ROUND
Most digital pianos offer a fixed piano sound, and if you don’t like it, you’re stuck with it. Not this one though, as the onboard Piano Designer lets you create your perfect piano. You can even adjust the pitch, level, and tonal character for each of the 88 notes, so the overall piano sound perfectly suits the acoustic properties of any room . Finally, a piano that adapts to you, instead of the other way around.

3D HEADPHONES SOUND BRINGS PRACTISE TO LIFE
The beauty of digital pianos is that you can practise in silence without disturbing other people. Great for them, but what about you? You’ll probably be using headphones a lot, but many pianos don’t take this into account. With the new Headphones 3D Ambience effect, you’ll enjoy the sound field of an acoustic piano during these private sessions, making it feel as though the sound is emanating from the instrument itself.

LISTEN, LEARN AND IMPROVE
The onboard recorder lets you listen to what you just played, highlighting areas for improvement. Instant recording is a real time saver, essential for helping students improve. It comes in handy for experienced pianists too as you can share your audio recording (via USB) with family, friends, or your piano teacher.

FREE ROLAND APPS MAKE PIANO PRACTICE FUN
Practise can be boring, but it’s essential if you want to improve. So why not make practise fun by hooking up your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? With the Piano Partner app you can display the piano’s built-in songs via the iPad’s screen, identify the different notes by ear or wirelessly stream your favourite tunes from your iPhone through the piano’s speaker system.

*Wireless communication requires the Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adaptor (sold separately) and a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection.

AUTHENTIC DAMPER PEDAL RESPONSE
The Progressive Damper Action pedal accurately replicates the damper pedal on an acoustic piano. It features the continuous tactile response that experienced players expect, with light resistance when the pedal is first pressed and more resistance as the damper function begins to take effect. This allows for more intuitive control while playing, along with “half-pedal” techniques for subtle control over sustain and resonance.

EXPLORE AN EXPANDED RANGE OF DYNAMIC EXPRESSION
The Dynamic Harmonic feature allows you to adjust the unique overtone characteristics created with fortissimo playing. If you’re a student, this gives you a new palette of tonal colors to explore as the strength of your key touch improves. More experienced players will welcome the deep expressive control too.

CONVENIENT FEATURES FOR EVERYDAY PLAYING
This is a Roland digital piano, with many advantages over acoustic pianos. It’ll save you money as it doesn’t need tuning, and you get a metronome, recording features, silent practice with headphones, USB connectivity and the option to use apps to help you improve. But it’s worth remembering that the our pianos are just like acoustic pianos where it really matters: the sound, feel and playing experience. Just the way it should be.
