We are working hard to finish five new models and intend to show at Namm
Website comming that will keep you informed by fourth quarter 2006
Any qualified Rhodes technicians wishing to be factory authorized for warrantee service repair can register when the company website comes on line.
I support your community and have appreciated the suggestions in
developing ,hopefully ,the greatest Rhodes electric piano line ever.
Further details were then offered in this thread on Gearslutz, to the following effect:
" Mr. Brandstetter has confirmed that the new instruments will:
be true electromechanical pianos, based on Harold Rhodes' design
mechanically follow (with improvements) the most recent production Rhodes, the Mk V
be fitted as standard with MIDI
be lighter, more roadworthy and more portable than any previous production Rhodes
be available in 73- and 88-note versions
offer many new features
have a striking visual presence, while obviously remaining a "genuine Rhodes" "
Now, that's some news I can get behind.
