classic (Yamaha - CP30)

By theaudioandvideoguy, 26/04/2012
The Yamaha Cp 30 is an electic piano that has a very unique and different sound. Very rich for its time. The Yamaha CP 30 was actually one of the most affordable electric piano’s with good quality back in its production time. Most other brands that where very good back in the day create digital piano’s that where great quality but cost a lot. So during that time Yamaha came out with the CP 30 and I guess you could say undercut a lot of other brands and that’s how the CP 30 became so popular. The CP 30 is an electric piano that you really don’t want to take it anywhere. You pretty much want to keep this at home. From my personal experiences its pretty fragile. I have had a lot of problems with this. Maybe I wasn’t being careful enough or something but it seemed like every time it got moved something else got messed up. Also the jack where the pedal plugged in at ended up getting a little loose and we had some issues with keeping it plugged I correctly and even had to rig it up with some tape in order for it to work properly.

Not that our Yamaha CP 30 was defective it was just through a lot with all of the moving and transporting it from place to place eventually it just starting messing up on us. But its definitely worth the money spent and you can never go wrong with a Yamaha piece of equipment. I loved playing jazz music on this, though im not a pro but I can mess around with some jazz chords and they sound great. A friend of mine has always played classical pieces on it and it sounds amazing. Every single sound bank that it comes with has a very thick solid classic sound that you will love. I am not too sure what these are selling for now as far as the price. But im pretty sure the price isn’t too bad if you can find one.

love the 70s (Rhodes - Mark I Stage 73)

By theaudioandvideoguy, 26/04/2012
The Fender Rhodes Mark 1 was originally produces in the early 70’s. People went crazy over the Fender Mark 1 back then it was like every single major musician had one and every one wanted one maybe because of just that reason. Of course the 70’s where a different time in music and the average Joe couldn’t afford to purchase these back then . The Fender Rhodes Mark 1 was a great stage piano and is to be used with a guitar amp. The front knobs are only for volume and some bass eq controls. You really didn’t have many options over controlling your sound on these back in those times (its amazing how far equipment has come over the last 40 years). The Fender Rhodes Mark 1 is kind of like a “suit case” model as the call it. Because it had the old suit case look too it and the suit case handles on the side of it for carrying it. Plus the weight of it was great, you could almost lug it around anywhere with you. It was created to be moved around a lot.

After the first few years of this model they have went back and made a lot of changes to it The original mark 1 had the hammer tips that couldn’t be replaced. But when they came out with the newer versions of the Mark 1 they made it so you could replace the hammer tips because over time the hammer tips too some wear and it really affected the piano. That was the biggest change in my book and im happy they have done that. Or at least I was at the time, I still think they my grandad might still have one of these in his shed. Its definitely not in playing condition if it is still in there. But there is no doubt that the Fender Rhodes Mark 1 is a classic model.

Hohner made a solid piece of gear (Hohner - Pianet M)

By theaudioandvideoguy, 26/04/2012
The Hohner Pianet M is a popular electric piano and it was one of the best one’s that Hohner Made. Hohner is a company from Germany and it was produced between the 60’s and 70’s. The sound of the Pianet M is from a bunch of metal stings that are plucked by pads that are the inside of the unit and then medal rods connected to the keys so that when you press a note the pad moves and makes the string vibrate which creates that sound. There are other versions of the Hohner Pianet as well, the first version of the it by Hohner was just called the Pianet. Then came out when the Pianet C the Pianet L and this version here (not in that order though). The Hohner Pianet M was one of the final models that came out and that’s when they changed the pads on the inside from foam to rubber so they would last longer and be better.

This is one of the reason that the Pianet M models was so popular because it basically would last longer, they have worked out all of the kinks with this model of the Pianet by Hohner. The M model was made for home use only and was built in a case that was made of wood and had speakers also built in on it, so no need for external speakers. Also, the M model didn’t come with legs, the previous models had legs so they could stand at a good height on there own. A lot of the technology used on the Pianet M is still being used on a lot of electric pianos in todays world almost 40 years later. Hohner was way ahead of time when making this model. I take my hat of to Hohner they have created a great electric piano and if I could rewind time I would purchase one of these now.
