Roland LX-17 Digital Piano Replaces Ed Sheeran's Guitar at the 2018 Brit Awards
At this year's Brit Awards the Roland LX 17 Digital Piano helped Ed Sheeran deliver a stand-out performance without his signature Martin guitar. While South London grime superstar Stormzy surprised viewers and pipped Ed Sheeran to the top prizes, Sheeran didn't go away empty-handed and picked up the global success award.
For eagle-eyed viewers though, the main surprise was seeing Ed Sheeran without his iconic acoustic guitar. While we listened to the start of Sheeran's 'Supermarket Flowers', the gentle piano notes caught our attention before the camera revealed Ashton Miranda playing a high-gloss Roland LX17 Digital Piano.
Ed Sheeran is known for his emotionally-charged and expressive performances, and his Martin acoustic guitar has been a signature part of his sound for as long as we can remember. The use of a piano in his Brit Award performance this year made for a wonderful interpretation of his song, and really shows just how expressive the Roland LX 17 is.
As a flagship piano in the Roland line, the LX 17 features an incredible assortment of technology including the SuperNATURAL sound engine which produces rich and immersive tones that actively respond to the nuances of your performances. The wooden feel keys evoke the elegant touch and aesthetics of an acoustic piano and helped the LX 17 make a big impression on stage with Ashton Mirando.

In a market flooded with stage pianos, we think the LX 17 did a fantastic job of conveying all the nuances of Ed's music. If you're seeking your own flagship piano, the LX 17 gives a stunning blend of playability, tonality, and natural upright-piano aesthetics. This piano provides a comprehensive playing experience, and after all, if it's good enough for Ed Sheeran…
