It has many of the same design elements as Roland’s acclaimed Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard.

Great Sounds
The KR-103’s sounds are vibrant and realistic. Many of the sounds have been refined and processed to provide added color and impact. Combined with the new amplification system, the KR-103’s sounds will inspire and impress, from crystal clear high end to powerful low frequencies.
