New Solutions Launched at the 2017 Winter NAMM Show
Roland’s leading lineup of music accessories continues to grow, with many new solutions introduced at the 2017 Winter NAMM Show, the yearly gear explosion in Anaheim, California. To start, we’ve launched a wide range of piano benches to complement our award-winning home and stage pianos. In addition, our professional cable lineup has expanded, and lots of new clip-light models are available as well. We also have new road case models, including many rackmount cases, plus some new top-quality drum thrones. Read on to learn about these great Roland accessories, plus many others.
Our all-new piano bench lineup consists of ten different styles, from basic benches to premium models with velour cushioning and built-in storage compartments. There are standard and duet sizes available in different color options to match your instrument or application. Polished ebony and polished white finishes are a perfect match for premium Roland pianos such as the GP607, LX-17, and others. Satin black and satin white finishes are a great fit with family pianos and portable piano setups.
The top-of-the-line Gold Series gets a new addition with our premium Quad microphone cables. These high-performance cables are crafted with an additional pair of oxygen-free copper conductors for ultra-pure signal transmission and superior noise reduction. This configuration employs four conductors to cancel out noise and reject RF/EM interference, ensuring precise sound reproduction in any stage or studio setting.
MIDI cables have also been added to the Gold Series. Multi-strand copper wire reliably transmits music, timecode, and sys-ex data, while high-density spiral shielding eliminates any possible interference. Various lengths are available, as well as straight/straight and angled/straight connector configurations.
Offering top performance at a great value, the Black Series cables are ideal for your everyday cable needs. For 2017, we’ve added two special USB cables to this line that allow you to connect an instrument or microphone to your computer with no additional hardware. These cables are 100-percent passive, and rely on your computer’s native USB audio support for operation.

Road Cases and Bags
Roland’s new rackmount cases are available in 2U, 4U, 6U, and 8U sizes. Tough and durable, these streamlined cases feature rugged exteriors and steel hardware for years of reliable protection on the road.
The Black Series instrument bag line includes a new limited-edition bag for a Roland Boutique module. Its special silver color is a perfect match for the TB-03, a recently released module based on the classic TB-303 Bass Line. We also offer black bags with orange trim for Roland Boutique instruments, with models for carrying one or three modules.
Last year, we introduced three new drum thrones with premium velour seat tops. We’ve now expanded the line with similar models that offer durable vinyl seat tops.
Portable LED clip lights are extremely handy, and must-have accessories for every musician. We’ve expanded our lineup with six new models in various styles with warm white or cool white LED bulbs.
