The Roland AE-10 Aerophone, Graphite Black is a redefined rendition of one of Roland's most popular digital instruments.The Roland AE-10 has established itself as one of the brand's flagship instruments, brandishing a formidable selection of onboard digital sounds for eclectic and vibrant musical performances.

With the sleek new graphite black body colouring, the AE-10 gives the player even more choice from an already comprehensive and all encompassing instrument. An instrument considered internationally wide-spread, the saxophone sees itself populating an expanse of different genres. Whilst renowned for its rich brassy tone and mellow tonality, it famously lacks the range and portability of many of its counterparts.

The AE-10 however, puts the power of versatility right into your hands. With an onboard selection of different sax types including; alto, soprano, and baritone, you can perform without every worrying about changing your instrument. Lightweight and portable, the Aerophone is the ideal solution for those musicians looking for a high-quality digital instrument that will not only expand their repertoire but define it.

With Roland's intuitive technology at the very centre of the AE-10's functionality, the instrument is able to express a variety of high-quality synth orientated sounds meticulously designed to emulate clarinets, flutes, oboes, trumpets, violins and much more. At the hands of Roland's innovative supernatural technology, the AE-10 can enact accurate pitch and tone corrections to achieve a striking resemblance to instruments like the shakuhachi and erhu.

Based on the traditional fingering found on the likes of your everyday sax, the Aerophone AE-10 promises the same playability you know and love but with a new, inspired functionality.

If you weren't already convinced by AE10's eclectic selection of sounds and preset instrument patches, the instrument's expressive capabilities alone are enough to make even the most staunch acoustic musician go digital. Much of the Aerophones tonality can, in fact, be owed to the physical exertion of the player themselves. The AE-10's mouthpiece detects the force of your bite whilst the reed like breath sensor takes the pressure blown from the player into account.
