History Of Roland

The Roland Corporation are on the cutting edge of musical instrument innovation, and have been since their creation in 1972.
With a brand culture very much influenced by its Japanese origins, Roland are constantly pushing the boundaries of digital music making, leading to them producing the best electronic drum kits in the world, as well as the most popular digital home pianos and keyboards.

But it's synths where Roland really cut their teeth and their impact on the synthesizer market stretches right back to the 1980s when Roland founder Ikutaro Kakehashi had a pivotal role in developing the MIDI standard which is still used extensively to this day.

Roland FAQs

Are Roland and Boss the same company?

Essentially, yes. Boss is the guitar branch of Roland, specifically gearing their pedals, multi effects and amps towards guitar players.

Roland keyboards cover an extremely wide spectrum of features and prices. From the stripped back Go: Piano, to the all-encompassing Fantom, and onto the integrated drum machine Jupiter, there's something for everyone.

What's the difference between a digital piano and a synth keyboard?

A digital piano recreates the playing feel and sounds of an acoustic piano. That includes a variety of legendary piano tones and hammer weighted keys. A keyboard is, in essence, a synth which packs in a myriad of adventurous sounds and simpler action keys.
