Features and Description

Elegance and Class
The C-30 is elegant and classy, and suitable for any size room. It allows images, paintings, or other artistic elements to be affixed to the keyboard lid and side panels (see Accessories). Roland provides a variety of image patterns, including paintings and stained-glass-type panels. Together with its matching stand (included) the C-30 is a gorgeous addition to any home or music venue.

Click-Action Keyboard
Not only does the C-30 look and sound wonderful, it’s a joy for the fingers as well. Roland’s newly developed “click action” F-scale keyboard provides the perfect, authentic harpsichord experience.

Classic Sounds
Four types of sound-sets are built into the C-30: French-type harpsichord, Flemish-type harpsichord, Fortepiano and Dynamic harpsichord. Each has four stop variations: 8’I (back), 8’II (front), 4’ and Lute. It also has two positive small-pipe organ sounds, and a choice of five temperaments with Baroque pitch support.

Classical Tuning & Temperament
Available tuning options include baroque pitch (415Hz) and Versailles pitch (392Hz), which can be switched instantly without changing the temperament (classical tuning). A total of five tunings are supported. In addition to equal temperament, there are Werckmeister, Kirnberger, Vallotti and Meantone. Best of all, since the C-30 is a digital instrument, it is unaffected by weather, humidity, or transport. It never goes out of tune!

Private Practice
Music students will appreciate the ability to play day or night without disturbing their surrounding environment. But when it’s time to raise the volume, the C-30 can fill every corner of a medium-size hall with its built in speakers (without the use of an external PA). For larger venues, the C-30 can be connected to an external amp or PA for high-volume performance.

Solid and robust, the C-30 is also portable and easy to move — great for traveling musicians or music schools and churches. Simply unplug and carry the C-30 from room to room.
