We are pleased to present the official virtual instrument version of the Vintage Vibe® Electric Piano. Since the mid-1960s, the Rhodes® Electric Piano has been heard on practically every recording in almost every style of music, but these classic instruments were discontinued in the 1980s. Fast-forward to 2011 when Vintage Vibe released their new, hand-built “Tine Piano.” A high-quality, modern take on a classic with a vibey, authentic sound – the first “real” electric piano made from scratch in decades.
It comes with American-made steel tines and rubber-tipped wooden hammers, along with either hand-wound passive pickups or Peterson-style preamps with stereo tremolo. The 44, 64, and 73-key versions have an amazing selection of cool fiberglass top colors and they are much lighter than their predecessors, due to a re-designed frame and the lighter, Wurlitzer®-like, Linden wood keybed. The super-consistent action lets you play softly for a warm tone or lay into it for a real growl.
Fans of the Vintage Vibe® Electric Piano include Stevie Wonder, Greg Phillinganes, and Robert Glasper, among many others. We worked closely with Vintage Vibe to create the ultimate software version of this modern-day classic!
