Roland C-280 Classic Organ

Utilizing the latest digital sampling technology, the C-280 is a positive organ for the modern musician offering eight individual stops for two types of organ tones with unprecedented authenticity. With the optional C-280P Pipe system, even more majestic sounds are produced.

* Eight individual stops allow the control of two different organ types, the traditional "chiff" sound as well as the softer sound for accompaniment
* Other useful chamber and orchestral sounds include Chimes, Celesta and Choir
* Optional pipe façade (C-280P) adds greater resonance from the "pipes" and internal tweeters
* Dedicated Reverb knob for realtime control of reverb time and depth
* Equipped with classical temperaments and Baroque tunings for period-authentic performances
* No tuning required
* Traditional walnut finish with classic beauty and timeless design
