Rhodes Intros 75th Anniversary Edition MK8/75AE Electric Piano

To celebrate 75 years of Rhodes musical instruments, Rhodes has introduced the 75th Anniversary Edition MK8/75AE electric piano.

Building on the design of the modern Rhodes MK8, the limited edition MK8/75AE adds premium design touches. The company describes it as “the very elite iteration of the modern Rhodes piano.”

It features analogue effects as standard, and a dark aesthetic, with a blacked-out keybed and gold accented details.

  1. At that price, only 75 people will be able to afford. Seeing the pictures here, it looks like they are going to have it produce the sound like tne older ones did.

  2. i would love a rhodes again, and a baby grand piano and a hammond b3 and leslie!

    sadly, it’s just not the same anymore.

    not a fan of the way over the used car cosmetic ‘upgrade’ of ‘blacked out’ is applied to anything now. it’s just weak black paint. ugh. no thanks.

  3. “Hey look – a $13,000+ USB controller key!” (/jk)

    Since they are talking about built-in “analog effects”, at this price point I would have to take it for granted that there is at least a bucket-brigade chorus and a real tape delay (with real tape!) in there…

    To their credit it looks very nice. But something “elitist” like this is not for the 95% of us then, I suppose. Anyway, happy birthday Rhodes company! 🙂
