Title: Founder of Roland instruments dies
Post by: Tom on April 03, 2017, 06:10:06 AM
Ikutaro Kakehashi, founder and inventor of Roland instruments, died over the weekend at the age of 87. Reportedly, he was still inventing until the end. Roland is well known for their electronic keyboards, used by countless professional musicians/bands. They're also known for their electronic drum machines.
 
 I can't resist playing Roland drum pads when I visit a Guitar Center store.

Sad to hear that.
I own a TD-12 Kit, not to mention many other Roland products from keyboards to effects units, EQ,s, guitar pedals, etc.
The JC-120 is a classic guitar amp that will never go out of style.
