Roland C-80-AK Digital Harpsichord

The C-80-AK Digital Harpsichord improves upon the original C-80 by adding a gorgeous satin oak cabinet with an improved side panel joint and wood grain direction. This authentic instrument reproduces five acoustic harpsichord timbres and other Baroque orchestra sounds like celesta and two continuo organ timbres. "Early music" enthusiasts can revel in a period-authentic instrument with all of the advantages of digital technology—no tuning required and no maintenance costs. The C-80's historical temperaments, Baroque tunings and authentic key action provide a powerful instrument for the discriminating Baroque musician.
