From beginners to professionals, Roland offers a wide range of personalized experiences in-store, and through its new Tokyo store, Roland expands its global reach, while following the successful model of its London counterpart.
In doing so, the Roland Store Tokyo continues the Demo-on-Demand service, an appointment-based structure which provides tailored experiences for each customer, led by Roland’s product specialists, who have deep expertise in a variety of musical instruments and can support one-on-one product explanations and demonstrations. Whether looking at getting started with an instrument or helping to make a decision before purchasing, customers will be able to explore Roland’s vast range in-store with guidance from its dedicated team.

Additionally, Roland product specialists are on hand to help visitors deepen their relationship with music before, during, and after the purchase of a product, offering numerous after-sale care sessions after those offered during each appointment.
