Rhodes just releases the first photos of its New electric piano and says it is “going to blow people’s minds”

Just a few weeks since it was confirmed that the Rhodes brand is now under new ownership, it looks like the fledgling company is almost ready to show its first electric piano.

 

Word has it that the new Rhodes has been in development for two years at an R&D facility in Leeds, and Dan Goldman, the new Rhodes Chief Product Officer (not to mention demon Rhodes player) is doing nothing to dampen expectations.

“Compared to the old pianos it’s got all the vibe and soul, but everything that wasn’t precisely built has been precisely built and with massive detail,” he says.

 

“I think it’s the ultimate collision of the vintage world and the modern world. I think what we’ve achieved in the last two years is going to blow people’s minds.”

Forget digital emulations – this looks like the real deal. Anticipation-building photos indicate that this is very much a real Rhodes rather than a digital emulation of some kind, with the vintage look of the classic EPs of yesteryear.

 

This would make total sense as there is no point buying a brand like Rhodes and then not trading on its heritage but, it will be interesting to see if anything new has been added to the formula.

 

Our sources indicate that we have to wait for weeks rather than months before the big reveal. You can sign up for direct updates on the Rhodes website.
