After their successful online product launch event last year, Roland have altered their approach a little and will be debuting 14 new products (from the Roland and Boss families) from May 26 to June 23 2017 over 4 separate events.
We believe the four events, along with their dates, are categorized like so:
- 26th May - Drums / Percussion (4 products)
- 1st June - Guitar Products (2 products) - Pro Video (2 products)
- 20th June - Synthesizer (2 products)
- 23rd June - Guitar Products (4 products)
We're particularly excited about the June 20th debut event with two synthesizers planned. We wonder whether this will see further additions to the Boutique synthesizer range or the AIRA range. Or perhaps something new?
