The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Compact, Attractive Piano

The Roland RP401R brings professional performance at an attractive price for younger families or piano teachers. The compact design means this space saving piano will fit into smaller rooms with an integrated music stand and retractable lid to cover the keyboard when not in use. The choice of Simulated Rosewood or Contemporary Black finishes mean you can choose the look that best suits your home.

True Piano Tone

Roland's SuperNATUAL Piano technology gives you a truly authentic piano playing experience and inspires students to practice and learn. The new PHA-4 Standard Keyboard has an Ivory Feel texture and includes the latest sensing technology to enable players to make the most of this piano's vast tonal range. The RP401R also has three integrated pedals like an acoustic grand, including a Progressive Damper Action pedal that offers continuous response for developing traditional playing techniques.

Rhythm Development and Ensemble Skills

The Roland RP401R's onboard rhythm function means you can play and practice music along with a full backing band! The easy to use rhythms automatically follow the chords you play and the choice of 72 styles means you'll always find something to suit. Plus the generous selection of interesting sounds such as organ, guitar, brass and synths provide countless possibilities for expression and composition.

Enhanced Digital Features

As with all digital pianos the Roland RP401R is always in tune and doesn't require the expensive maintenance of an acoustic instrument. The volume is easily adjusted or limited to suit the time or place and silent practice is possible using headphones. The RP401R's Headphone 3D Ambience feature greatly enriches the headphone sound. Other useful features include a built in metronome, recorder, USB connectivity and a Twin Piano mode.

Free Piano Apps Motivate Students

Roland's free piano apps add tons of extra capability to an already impressive piano. The Air Performer app lets students play along with their favourite tracks on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch through the RP401R's speakers. Slow down songs if you're just starting out to make things easier or adjust the key so you can sing along.

Piano Partner for iPad works with the RP401R to help students improve their skills. It includes DigiScore Lite which displays the onboard songs as sheet music on your iPad. It also includes Flash Card, an interactive music program that kids will love, plus an intuitive graphical interface for selecting tones, songs, and rhythms in the RP401R. Flash Card develops listening and reading skills in a fun way by challenging the student to identify notes shown on the iPad?s display and sounded from the piano, with awards given after five challenges.

Delivery Options

Courier Delivery

When you add this product to your shopping basket, you will be provided with our standard courier delivery option free of charge, which is a 'to your door' service. You may need to help the delivery driver as this product comes packaged in large boxes!

This option may not be suitable if you are unable to help the driver if required, or if you need the piano delivering upstairs but you don't have anyone else available to help. Please consider whether this is the most appropriate delivery service for you, as other delivery options are also available for an additional cost.

2 Man Delivery Service

If you select this option, two delivery personnel will deliver the piano boxes to any ground floor room of your choice, rather than just your front door. Please note that this service will take a few days longer than the standard courier service and the courier company will call you to arrange a convenient delivery date after you have placed the order.

If you would like more information, please call us on 0843 155 0800.
