Vintage Vibe Classic 73-Key Piano with Variable Voice Control Mod - Black

73-note active electric piano in black ABS plastic and Variable Voice Control modification

Product Description

The Vintage Vibe Classic Piano is the most authentic, gig-friendliest electric tine piano on the market today. With the sound you love and the performance you’ve been waiting for, the Vintage Vibe piano is favored by the world’s most storied keyboard artists. From legends like Chick Corea, Stevie Wonder, Donald Fagen, Alicia Keys and Greg Phillinganes, to today’s musical masters like Robert Glasper, H.E.R., Matt Johnson (Jamiroquai), Jeff Chimenti (Dead and Co.), Rachel Eckroth and many others, Vintage Vibe is truly the Player’s Choice.

The Vintage Vibe Classic Piano marries the mojo of yesterday’s fabled instruments, with engineering and sonic enhancements previously unavailable until now. The result is a lightweight, lean, mean, gigging machine, with unmatched tone, touch and reliability. Each Vintage Vibe piano is hand-built by a team of expert artisans with nearly 90 years combined experience crafting bespoke keyboard instruments.

From its American-made steel tines, to its all new keyboard action, pre-amp and hammer design (multiple patents pending), the Vintage Vibe Classic Piano is a working musician’s dream axe. But the Vintage Vibe Classic Piano doesn’t just sound great, it’s the sharpest looking electric piano available anywhere.

VINTAGE VIBE VARIABLE VOICE

The traditional Rhodes design allows for the timbre of each individual note to be adjusted from full fundamental to pure overtone, and anywhere in-between. Voicing is the process of selecting a tone and adjusting all of the piano’s notes to sound uniform, from one note to the next. The downside of such adjustability is the time it takes to voice an entire piano, as well as the effect such voicing has on the feel and performance of the piano. Many action specifications are altered by adjusting the height of the tine in order to change its position relative to the pickup.

How can voicing versatility be achieved in a minimum of time without adverse effects on the piano’s playability? The answer is the Vintage Vibe Variable Voice Control. By globally repositioning the pickups as opposed to the tone generators, the complete sound spectrum is available to the musician instantly, and with infinite adjustability. Strike line, hammer blow distance, escapement, and damper lost motion all remain unaltered, preserving feel and response throughout the timbral spectrum.

The patent-pending design floats the pickup rail from the piano’s harp assembly, allowing a lever to alter the position of the entire pickup rail in relation to the tines. For a working musician, simply sliding a lever left or right results in the most instantaneous global voicing ever achieved!

Set to the middle of the slider’s travel is the sound Vintage Vibe has become famous for; Balanced fundamentals with a hint of overtone under a light touch. More aggressive playing introduces more overtones, which (and here’s the key) gradually decay back to those beautiful, balanced fundamentals.

Moving the slider to the right introduces more and more overtone. “Bark” and “bite” are accentuated, gradually thinning the overall tone into late Rhodes-era territory. Want headroom? Moving the slider all the way to the right virtually cancels out all fundamentals for a unique, ethereal tone in the treble, with a multi-footage effect present in the bass/tenor section.

Moving the slider to the left allows the fundamental tone to shine through. Add-in high frequency response available through our latest Stereo Vibe preamp (included), and the results are full and rich with a sparkling attack. Continuing all the way to the left of the slider’s travel and the piano recreates the early tones of 1960s Raymac tines, right down to the quick decay of harmonics that were the hallmark of the “Silver top" and “Jetsons" pianos.

The Vintage Vibe Variable Voice Control allows you to physically voice your piano on the go, something no electronic circuit can do.

For the most customized electric piano playing experience, all roads lead to Vintage Vibe!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
