What is SuperNATURAL® Piano by Roland


Consumer-Grade Pianos

Grade 4

Available on the internet and in many “big box” retail stores, many of today's manufacturers are building pianos with excellent cabinetry, but low-grade interior components. To entice customers to buy these “starter” instruments, consumer-grade builders purchase old and - in many cases – well-respected brand names from companies that are no longer in business for themselves.

Mass-Produced Pianos

Grade 3

Filled with a number of recognizable brand names, the mass-produced piano market has always been extremely competitive. Mass producers strive to produce a large number of pianos inexpensively. Thus, the kind of personal attention common to Grade 1 and Grade 2 pianos are too time consuming to make sense in Grade 3.

Due in part to the extremely competitive nature of mass-production, Grade 3 companies represent a wide variety of quality levels. If you’re looking for a good quality - and inexpensive - lessons instrument, a Grade 3 piano might be worth considering – as long as you carefully explore the construction, performance and pricing practices of each Grade 3 brand you evaluate.

Limited Production Pianos

Grade 2

A relatively new development in the piano world, Limited Production Pianos employ a mix of hand-craftsmanship and assembly line mass-production. The result is a new category of pianos – one that incorporates much of the quality and design associated with Handcrafted pianos, but at a price closer to those in Grade 3.

Handcrafted Pianos

Grade 1

Originally, all pianos were hand-made. Communities took pride in the individual designs and unique tonal qualities of their local instruments. Even as automation made piano building cheaper and more accessible to the masses, the handcrafted piano companies thrived. Focusing on uncompromising quality, the finest woods and materials, generations of skilled artisans, and proprietary designs, handcrafted piano companies built their reputations on quality, individuality and investment value.

Today, these companies continue to build the finest pianos in the World in the traditional way: by hand. Grade 1 companies believe that the best pianos can’t be constructed with robotic welding arms and automated production lines. They are built with human hands for other human hands to play.
