Almost perfect (Rhodes - Mark I Suitcase 73)

By morris day, 08/09/2014
I have 4 years a Rhodes MKI suitcase 73th. it is from 1979 (the one with the sliders, so just before the arrival of the MKII)
the amp is really great and perfect in concert (except weight) of the two slider EQ are not bad although treble add breath. The effects loop allows millions of possibilities.
Tremolo is definitely the best of the range. keyboard dynamics is top, hit heavy and not rebound. While on the hammers are plastic so the sound is not very crunchy .. unless you play hard (I'm not talking about volume ... but the strength of the fingers). it is ideal to headphones at nightfall, as donf in beef or live. A little trick to make it sound like a Fender Rhodes before 1976 (introduction of plastic hammers) bringing together micro and tines of a compressor in the effects loop.
Go for it! If you find a Fender Rhodes MKI suitcase, go to hell even faster limitations ...

Good Rhodes with more than his elders did not (Rhodes - Mark 7 Stage 73 A)

By davidb75007, 13/08/2014
Hello everyone,

I am stunned by the negative comments about Rhodes Mark 7 Many repairman Rhodes talk about it, without even having had a hands (enough to base their opinion).
The Rhodes Mark 7 I can tell you is that of the Series A (A for Active) Stage 73.
The clear advantage is that it is new, thus saving us a lot of trouble catering and other costly repairs. The other advantage is that it has a preamp configurable: you can work on three levels of EQ (bass, mid and treble) and tremolo (speed and depth). In addition, on the left side, there are several outputs (headphone, two XLR and two jack) and also for effects, a "send" and "return".
It is true that the structure that shapes the exterior of the Mark 7 is made of synthetic resin, the strength is not any proof. Inside was the same as the mechanical Rhodes Mark Mark I or II, for some wood pieces is replaced with plastic / resin. The keys are made of wood. Harp, tines, pickups are the same design as the Mark I and II.
This is in addition to a model, victim of prejudice purists and other nostalgic Mark I and II, is not widespread in France.
I think the models from Rhodes that made its prestige all have their peculiarities and their faults. Also, some were not appreciated in their time as much as their predecessors. It is true that Rhodes has exaggerated marketing of Mark 7 and created a huge expectation on a simple electric piano Rhodes 2000s that, the Mark 7 can only be different from its elders.
In use, I am fully satisfied: well rounded and deep (or fat) low airy highs, impeccable stereo tremolo.

Vixen Rising's review (Wurlitzer - 200A)

By Vixen Rising, 29/07/2014
Buy Used but totally reconditioned by vintagevibe end of 2013.

Before have I had my Wurlitzer VST Arturia then Pianet T Hohner.

What I like the most, sound, mechanical heat ... We feel for the game and it affects the approach of the keyboard, a real pleasure!
The small flat, fragile and difficult to transport without having to open and set 2/3 stuff.

A little expensive, but it is a real investment and if I had the choice again I would not hesitate a moment.
