Mostly, if you want a Wurlitzer or an old Rhodes piano, and you want it to last on the road, you’d have to scour the earth and put a lot of work into it. Beyond that, for me at least, I’ve always wanted to have both options, because a Rhodes doesn’t have what a Wurly has… In the Vintage Vibe 64, you get the cream and belliness of the Rhodes along with the warmth and flat world of the Wurlitzer. This is not a compromise; it is a wonderful evolution and maybe the first one in the world of electronic pianos in decades. And road ready? Yup.”
“One of the best sounding keyboards I have ever played. The feel makes you want to write all day.”
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that these instruments can be more than traditional electric pianos. The rich tones that I can get from my little 44 are perfect for processing through all kinds of effect boxes which adds to the sonic spectrum and which also makes it more responsive and playable than any other keyboard I own.. Plus it’s orange and who the hell else makes an orange 44 key piano?”
Back in the day, every once in awhile you’d run into a “sweet” Rhodes, praying you could find one for your own – The VV Piano captures that feel precisely – An uncanny masterpiece!”
I gotta tell ya, my new vintage vibe electric piano is just bad ass! I took it to the studio right away, and immediately had the producer asking what it was and where could he get one..The thing just plays so well. Totally even action and response top to bottom. Ultra dynamic for big lush paddy chords, and quick bounce back for fast riffs.. not mushy like a lot of Rhodes’ you find out there.. And you can get it to really bark if you dig in with just a little over-drive on your amp. It’s got a very musical feel…just killer! The electronics are amazing.. Transparent, yet punchy, and virtually no noise at all!
The tremolo is super smooth, and can go from subtle to intense, depending on the vibe you’re looking for. The thing just sings! I also gotta say it’s one of the coolest looking boards I’ve ever seen. And it doesn’t break your back when it’s time to move it. The team at Vintage Vibe is super helpful, and had it to me within two weeks. Not bad considering it was hand crafted for me!”
The Vintage Vibe Piano is exactly what I would expect a brand new vintage piano to sound like – with it’s beautiful tone and state of the art design, it is an absolute joy to play!”
To say the Vintage Vibe piano is versatile is a huge understatement. While it has all of the Rock and crunch of a Wurli, and the smooth stereo goodness of a Rhodes, the versatility really lies beneath your fingers. I can make this thing bark or purr, just by how I attack it. Just look at it funny and it plays itself. Aesthetically speaking, it takes the whole stage up a notch. It makes my Hammond look BETTER…”
