On November 2nd, 2012 NBC televised “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together”, a one-hour telethon to raise money for victims of the destructive storm Hurricane Sandy that devastated the East Coast. For the event, The Music Den provided a Roland V-Piano Grand Digital Piano to be played by none other than Billy Joel!!! It was also played by Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, and was used to back other artists such as Christina Aguilera. This was actually the second time in two weeks that Billy Joel had rented the piano from us. Why did the “piano man” himself rent a piano from The Music Den? Because The Music Den is one of the very few carriers and dealers of high-end Roland Digital Pianos, such as the V-Piano Grand, in the entire northeast United States! It’s true!
If you’re looking for a Digital Piano experience like none other, you need to come down to The Music Den and try out the Roland Digital V-Piano Grand today!

Living Piano – The V-Piano Grand soars above the limitations of past technologies with its revolutionary “living” piano core, allowing every note to respond and evolve naturally, seamlessly, and perfectly. With the V-Piano Grand, there is no velocity switching or looping, resulting in smooth, natural notes that must be heard to be believed. Organic, natural, beautiful — the V-Piano Grand is a dream to play.
Amazing Spatial Sound – Unlike any instrument before, the V-Piano Grand’s built-in sound system employs intelligent multi-channel audio technology that fills the room with amazing spatial sound in which the player and audience may not be aware of the existence of speakers. Each and every component of the piano sound is allocated to the appropriate location immediately, changing fluidly and naturally based on the performance. From the player’s perspective, hammer-clicks sound closer, for example, and ringing strings are at a distance. Each element is allocated intelligently in real time to create a wide, multi-dimensional sound space. This sound image is true to the player’s perspective, as well as to listeners. Furthermore, sound spaces are uniquely created for each piano model. This amazing feature is unique to the V-Piano Grand.
Sound Designer – With the V-Piano Grand you can choose from beautifully-crafted Vintage piano-model presets to futuristic Vanguard selections, or you can create your own custom collection. Vary the hardness of the virtual hammer felts, and experiment with exotic string configurations, tunings, and materials, such as all-silver triple strings for every key. Put a world-famous grand under your fingertips or play a futuristic piano that has never been heard before.
Innovative Cabinet Construction – In a Roland first, the V-Piano Grand lets you enjoy the aesthetic beauty of the mirror-finished fallboard while also concealing the control panel. In addition, the fallboard can function as a sliding lid. In the past, Roland digital pianos had either a fallboard or sliding-type lid. The V-Piano Grand combines the two, offering a beautiful fallboard that can also achieve the classic position. When the key lid is fully opened, it lets you see the control panel. If you want to conceal the control panel, the lid can slide horizontally, keeping the fallboard open (standing up). The music rest can be folded, so when the lid is closed and music rest is folded, the top of the V-Piano Grand becomes flat.
