The announcement last month by Roland of the sale of Rodgers Instruments to the Vandeweerd family completes Roland’s exit from the organ business. In late 2015 Roland stopped building the Roland Classic organs, and Church Keyboard Center acquired the entire remaining inventory of the C-330 and C-380 models. We only have one of each remaining available in the showroom.
Most of the models in the Roland Classic line are discontinued, with the exception of the C-30 harpsichord and the C-230 organ. Both of these remain available. Church Keyboard Center keeps both of these popular keyboards in stock. We also rent the C-30 and C-230 (by the week), and have two C-230 organs available for rent due to its popularity for smaller choral and orchestra performances. See rental information here.
Church Keyboard Center continues to be a Roland dealer. We focus on the popular stage piano keyboards, which continue to be available and are a main focus for Roland going forward. The RD-300nx is one of the most popular, and with a price decrease last year it is a feature-packed, amazing sounding piano for the money.
With the Rodgers change in ownership there has been some speculation regarding how warranties and support will be handled. It’s simple: Rodgers continues to support all Rodgers organs, including a full parts inventory, and Roland provides support for Roland organs and keyboards. Of course, when you need service and support for your Rodgers or Roland organ, just call Church Keyboard Center and we’ll take it from there.
