Directly off the harp.

And I am a man of science too.

is the pissing contest over between you two?

can we finally actually HEAR your piano?

thanks

I am 99.99% sure that 10Meg input impedance is not the reason for the quietness of the Countryman DI.  All versions of the stage piano have input impedances at least 10X lower than 1Meg.  I have several amp heads, 1 tube and 3 SS, all with 1Meg input impedance, and all are dead quiet

hey there! would you mind sharing a clip of your rhodes with the highs boosted. Ive already thrown money at several boxes with no improvement. and before i spend money on the countryman it would be nice to hear yours! thanks

Had the same problem.  After trying many remedies, the solution that worked was the Countryman Type 10 DI plugged into the harp RCA jack.  It brought out the bell tone and reduced the hiss at the same time.


so i've gotta ask, how was the country man different than the other options you tried?

for me it just seems like the signal of the hammers hitting the tines is too weak, so i have to boost every stage of my signal chain resulting in added noise.

wow! thanks for this man. may have to try the countryman :)

in turning down the volume pot, the noise goes away. telling me that the noise is coming from the harp.

 the volume of the noise is ok, i just need the volume of the hammers hitting the tines to be louder.

any suggestions?

heres the direct box im using. is this the correct kind of di?

8
ive tried that, as well as taking it through the bass boost and volume controls. both with the same result when boosting the highs.

anyone?

hey guys,

i'm recording my rhodes, and found that when i boost the high frequencies after its been recorded, its brings out the bell like tone of the rhodes, but it also introduces some unwanted hiss.

is there a way i can make the rhodes as quiet as possible without installing an eq/or preamp into the rhodes?

thanks

Anyone able to get these kind of results?

It seems like whenever I move the pickups closer to the tine, the pitch starts to shift and sustain dies.

is this impossible to achieve on the rhodes while getting sustain/pitch stability with a barky tone?

Hey guys, so i've been messing with the voicing settings on my rhodes lately and I've been pretty pleased with my results.

However, when I strike a key and get a freely resonating hit, if I press that same key again with the sustain pedal engaged, it won't be a freely resonant hit of the tine like the first one was.

Its almost like because the tine is still resonating when the second strike occurs, the hammer is almost acting as a damper instead of a hammer.

anyone else ever experience this and figure out what was causing it?

gotcha, will do. quick question tho: what is a fender tonestack. and another thing, just because something has the same frequency response doesn't mean it yields the same tone?

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / sonic stomp demos!

hey guys, I've seen this pedal discussed in a number of threads here , however i havnt been able to hunt down any demos shared here or on youtube. I've come across maybe 1 ? so if someone has a demo they would like to share, that would be awsome!

thanks for this man! now... i dont know alot about electronics so my question is: will i get the full results using the sonic stomp as a pedal, or will i need someone to create a circuit based on the sonic stomp and have them mount it to my rhodes?

i noticed that. pretty upset about it  :-[ as for the stereo vibe, i'm looking for a preamp that delivers that sparkle that the old dyno mods did, and im not really hearing that from the stereo vibe demos ive heard.

anyone know where i can get one of these things? saw some demos on youtube and am blown away by the sound. Any tips on how to get ahold of one of these mystical beasts would be incredible. thank you!

hey peter, thanks for this. i'm definitely interested :) would you be willing to do a video demo of this showcasing its "dyno like" qualities ? i would love to hear the rhodes with and without the processing. this would be great! thanks

greetings all. has anyone tried the speakeasy stagebox preamp? i'm looking to dyno my rhodes and havent had any luck with the local techs so i'm thinking this might be the next best thing? thanks
