Handcrafted in UK, the eighth version of arguably the most famous electromechanical piano once again sets the standard. Clearly inspired by earlier versions of the MK1 in terms of look and feel, the exterior of the instrument, designed by Axel Hartmann, offers the perfect fusion of the new and the old: "For the guitarist, it's the Fender Stratocaster. For the keyboard player, it's the Rhodes piano. Even today, a Rhodes can only be inadequately simulated in every smallest detail. A good Rhodes is therefore a real investment and well preserved instruments are rare. So when I received the request from Dan Goldman to design the new Rhodes Mark 8 piano, I was immediately excited," Hartmann says of the new Rhodes.

The MK8 represents a tonal balance between the early and later models - combining the richness and growl of the early models with the clarity of the later models. The mechanical parts are designed to capture all the classic sounds of the popular older Rhodes eras in a single instrument.

To ensure that the MK8 has all the important characteristics of the most popular Rhodes from the various eras, it was designed with the following pianos around for comparison: 1972 MK1 Suitcase, 1975 MK1 88 Suitcase x2, 1979 Suitcase, 1980 MK2 Stage, 1980 MK2 Suitcase, 1984 MKV, and 2010 MK7 Active.

The 73-key keyboard is precision-manufactured from spruce (with oak and beech key frames) by Steinway subsidiary Kluge Klaviaturen GmbH, and allows for an incomparably expressive playing experience down to the finest nuances.

The steel tuning rods and tone bars correspond to noble Rhodes quality, the rails of tuning rods and pickups were made of sustainable Baltic birch.

In addition, Rhodes Custom precision Alnico pickups ensure precise voicing thanks to an anti-slip device, while the flat pickup heads guarantee accurate loudness adjustment.

The hammers and combs are made of high-quality ABS plastic, mutes and felts also meet the very highest standards.

The true analog signal path is equipped with controls for volume, drive and envelope, various parameters can be controlled via an expression pedal.

Besides three-band EQ and resonant midrange filter, Rhodes Vari-Pan as well as four waveforms and audio rate modulation are available.

The effects processor offers VCA compressor (with blend/ratio control), chorus(rate/depth control), phaser (rate/depth control), and a delay (time/feedback and mix controls).
