Rhodes, the company behind the iconic Rhodes piano, relaunched earlier this year under the name Rhodes Music Group. The company has now released the new MK8 electric piano, designed and built in Leeds, England. The new piano is customizable, with buyers able to choose between different colors for the lid and finishes for the front panel, case, preamp panel, pedal and rear grille. Effects on the piano are also customizable. Prices for the MK8 start at £8,224. Find photos of the Rhodes MK8 below.
Dan Goldman, the chief product officer of Rhodes Music Group, led the design process for the MK8. Axel Hartmann designed the MK8’s look, and Cyril Lance worked on the piano’s preamp section and effects panel.
