DP-90e is under $2000
DP-90se is under $2600
Shipping is additional

I believe the HP504 is the same or somewhere between those models depending on the finish.

These prices are below the minimum advertised price (MAP), so you won't see them online. You'd probably have to call in to negotiate to get these prices.

I ordered a DP-90SE, which is probably in that same container arriving by the end of this month.


These are great prices and far below what I've been able to find! I've spoken to two online retailers and two local shops. Care to share any bargaining tips? You are clearly very good at it!

I'm curious if the PHA 4 concert key action warrants the price premium of the SE model over the PHA4 premium key action in the base E model? The mirror black finish on the SE looks great in the pics. Really like the look of this DP and the 2014 Roland updates to both models, I would guess these are high volume models for them.

I tried both actions on the HP series, and I could tell the difference. The Concert felt heavier, but both were enjoyable to play. I'm a true beginner though, so you would surely have a stronger preference for one over the other than I do. The biggest difference was the comparison to the DP90/DP90S. That difference was unmistakable and is the reason I decided to wait to purchase.

The polished ebony is beautiful in person! I decided against it because we have pets and I'm afraid the cat would scratch it, since I have no doubt she would jump up on it when no one is home. I'm not sure how well scratches like that could be repaired.

I read the SE had a better keybed and was available in a gloss finish.

I doubt you will get a response. I have tried several avenues on this site to obtain further info from BlackAndWhite about this, without success. I'm afraid these prices may be too good to be true, though I'd be thrilled to be wrong about that.

He listed his own DP-90se on the 'prices paid' thread as $2599+shipping, so his listing here as "under $2600" is a little bit of hyperbole. I'd like to know where he got that deal but he purposefully omitted that info in the other thread.

I'm guessing that he just applied whatever discount deal he got for his piano to the DP-90e price.

I remember that I got my Roland HP for an excellent price, because it was just those days newly introduced to the market of my country. Only two months later the price was increased significantly and stood stable that high until the new HP series became available. At the moment the new HPs appear at a nice appearing price, even lower than the old HPs have been priced just before the introduction of the new ones! Not necessary to say that the old HPs are now available at really special low prices. I have the feeling that the new ones will increase in price very soon, and then reach again the price of the old ones.
