The Roland KF-10 Sheer Black marks a collaboration between Roland and furniture company Karimoku, who have designed be both visually stunning and practical in the modern home. The SuperNATURAL sound modelling responds to the entire motion of your hands on the keys, leading to a similar tonal response to an acoustic piano. The KF-10’s Bluetooth compatibility allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet for apps dedicated to personalising your sound, page-turning or to play along with countless online tracks. The keys benefit from ebony/ivory tops and a weighted feel so you can perform with dynamic expression. This model’s black oak finish with the matching bench is eye-catching for all the right reasons.
Award Winning Design
SuperNATURAL Piano Sound
Stands out from the crowd with Karimoku hand-crafted all-wood cabinet
Designed in-house by Karimoku – Japan’s largest wood furniture-maker since 1940, and a noted exponent of environmentally friendly, low-formaldehyde timbers – the KIYOLA KF-10 is unlike any other piano on the market. Hand-crafted in Japan from all-natural wood, the result is a slim, stylish, ergonomically contoured cabinet that complements your living space like a piece of artisan furniture. Perfect for players who want to make a statement, the individual grain patterns are unique to each piano, as is the natural ageing of the wood, whether you choose a finish of Walnut (KF-10-KW) or Pure Oak (KF-10-KO).
Roland KF-10 Sheer Black Digital Piano Pure, natural wood for quality you can see and feel
Admiration alone is not enough: you’ll want to reach out and touch the KIYOLA KF-10. The cabinet’s smooth, contoured side panels are inspired by Karimoku’s high-end sofas, while the slim legs help it blend seamlessly into your living space. By keeping the controls to a minimum, the KIYOLA KF-10 preserves the organic look, with the volume knob and buttons all located on the side to prevent any distraction while playing. The cabinet lid also doubles as the music rest, for an aesthetic that is simple and compact. Over the years of ownership, you’ll also appreciate the beautiful ageing of the natural wood, just as you’d expect from high-end vintage instruments and furniture.
Roland KF-10 Sheer Black Digital Piano Hand-built by masters of traditional Japanese wood crafting
Renowned for their uncompromising attention to detail and perfectionism, Karimoku’s experienced craftsmen build each KIYOLA KF-10 cabinet at their Japanese factory which is located in the same part of Japan as Roland’s headquarters and factories. The cabinets are then shipped to the Roland plant for assembly of the internal electronics, speakers and keyboards. With environmentally friendly materials and methods used at every stage, this collaborative manufacturing process ensures the KIYOLA series is ethical and of consistent high quality.
Ergonomic piano bench supports your posture and protects your spine
Long periods sitting incorrectly on a badly designed piano bench can be uncomfortable, and may even cause strain to bones and joints, lower back pain and long-term damage to your spine. To address this, the KIYOLA KF-10 takes advantage of Karimoku’s huge experience of furniture design – and associated scientific research – by including an ergonomically designed piano bench. Extensively studied and tested by the Japanese craftsmen, it features a distinctive arched shape that promotes good posture, a wider sitting area that distributes your weight more evenly, and a cushion made from soft, high-density foam. As a result, you can play piano for longer without discomfort or fear of health issues.
