In a world of modern keyboards, there’s something about Roland’s new C-230 Classic Keyboard that speaks of the past.
That’s not to say that it doesn’t have cutting edge technology in it.
The C-230 features 36 classical organ tones, 8 organ bass tones, 4 harpsichord tones, two fortepianos, celesta, and a range of other sounds that can be added to the organ voices.
Spanning five octaves, the tuning can be adjusted in five ways (Equal, Werckmeister, Kirnberger, Vallotti, Meantone), there’s a damper and expression pedal, and a built-in speaker system (10W x 4) comprising two full-range speakers, two tweeters and two satellites, for a much fuller, enveloping sound.
The compact case is constructed from simulated mahogany, and it’s easily portable.
