Rhodes celebrates 75th Anniversary with Limited Edition "MK8/75AE" Piano featuring Dark and Gold-Plated Aesthetics


Rhodes has announced that it has completed manufacturing of its first strictly limited edition MK8/75AE electric piano. Here's what they say:

The MK8/7AE — anchored on the design of the classic Rhodes MK8 — has been painstakingly created from the ground up and is a stunning accomplishment of technical craftsmanship and aesthetic design. Each of the 75 new instruments, which have been assembled by hand at the Rhodes factory in Leeds, England, are now shipping to customers around the world and represent an important milestone in musical instrument design and the very fabric of broader musical culture.

A classic instrument for the ages
The MK8/75AE is the result of a collaboration between Rhodes Chief Product Officer Dan Goldman and famed industrial designer Axel Hartmann. The MK8/75AE is based on the foundation of the critically acclaimed Rhodes MK8, but is designed to reach even greater heights with its painstaking aesthetic and performance details, such as analogue effects, a special dark matte finish, and gold accented controls and encasement flourishes.

Each of these instruments contain the very essence of Rhodes — the legacy of our 75-year history as a brand, and the inspiring craftsmanship of our modern engineers and product designers. The MK8/75AE comprises exacting attention to detail and componentry, superior mechanical engineering and an exquisite aesthetic design. We hope these unique instruments inspire many years of music making among our customers.

Matt Pelling, CEO of Rhodes Music

The limited edition only had 75 available units and has sold out.

Price: The starting price for the Mk8 piano before any add-ons is $9,450 USD.
