The listening room
Our Rhodes setup and voicing delivers consistent play and dynamic response. In other words play lightly for a soft tone or dig in and go for the aggressive bark with even responsive voicing note to note!
This is where the line is drawn between musical instruments and just plain old instruments! Pictures are nice but we're here to listen!
We implore everyone to do comparative listening for consistency in voicing, tonality and setup.
Observe how the players interact with their Rhodes, are they fighting or flying? Is the Rhodes producing good sound?
Turn up the volume and take a listen!
Most of our recordings have been made with a simple Zoom Q3HD recorder, small yamaha mixer, pair of AKG microphones, recorded direct or thru a 1965 Fender Twin Reverb reissue (stock).
