Teal Rhodes: 1976 custom shop Suitcase

In Custom Shop, Rhodes

Our latest custom shop Rhodes suitcase, and what a looker! Our client had a specific vision for this one with all the premium appointments. Starting with teal tolex and a white sparkle lid + check blocks, this build also features custom fabricated high polished steel legs, kick plate and name rail. White piping adds a sophisticated accent to the grill clothe. Under the hood, this piano boasts an optical MIDI system and a new quad of Jensen P12Q Alnico speakers.

The foundation of any custom piano is built on our mechanical restoration. No details are left unturned in our comprehensive process, ensuring that any CEPCo build sounds and plays even better than it looks. The QRS PNOscan system adds a whole new layer of functionality to the Rhodes, enabling the user to have a separate MIDI signal that is unobtrusive to the Rhodes sound and action. Check out the video demonstration showcasing the Rhodes blended with a string patch on the Nord!
