Roland C30 Digital Harpsichord including stool. Experience the elegance of baroque music.
While producing authentically exquisite centuries-old harpsichord sounds and drawing inspiration from 21st century ingenuity, the Roland Classic Series C30 Digital Harpsichord uses digital technology to enhance playability and expressiveness. Whether you are a virtuoso or a novice, the C30 makes it possible for you to spend as much quality time as you want with the harpsichord.
Taking up little space, the styling of the C30 is modelled on the virginals. With an authentic wooden cabinet and a high-quality mahogany finish, the traditional and simple styling will be right at home in a classic or modern interior. The period styling is enhanced by stained glass on the stand and the decorative panel on the keyboard lid.
The C30 can easily switch between the built-in French and Flemish types of harpsichord. Both of these have four dispositions— 8’ I (back eight), 8’ II (front eight), 4’ (upper octave), and lute (buff mute) — and each disposition has its own dedicated selection button. You can play with a single disposition or layer more than one. The C30 also has an excellent fortepiano sound, and has two admirable sampled organ options - 8' flute (ideal for solo accompaniment) and 8'+4' Principal, which is ideal for use with a choir.
The digital C30 doesn’t need tuning and you can simply switch the pitch from a=440 to baroque (415 Hz) and French baroque (392 Hz). If, for ensemble playing, you need to match the C30 to other instruments, fine pitch adjustments can be made. You can easily take the C30 with you to group rehearsals and live performances. Even if the temperature and humidity vary, you can be sure that the pitch will remain accurate. Time-consuming maintenance is a thing of the past. Now, you can just turn on and play.
As well as equal temperament, you can select Werckmeister, Kirnberger, Vallotti and Meantone tuning schemes. Using one button it’s easy to change the tuning scheme according to the piece you are playing.
