Fender Rhodes - Piano Bass


Regular price $4,999.00

1972 Rhodes Piano Bass. Insanely rare in the country!
The 32 key bass was famously used by Ray Manzarek of the Doors.
This unit is in incredible condition, the only blemishes are a stencil of a previous owners name!
The Piano Bass has a deeper, more fundamental tone than the corresponding notes on a 73 Rhodes piano. The difference stems from the Piano Bass’s tone circuit built into its ‘’name rail.’’ The Bass’s tone circuit was designed to filter out upper harmonics. If you had a Piano Bass and a 73, and ran each keyboard’s signal directly from it harp (bypassing their name rail circuits), those 32 notes would sound identical.
