Measurement between pedal and legs
« on: October 04, 2020, 05:41:04 AM »
Hi, very specific request here!

I don't have access to my Rhodes Mk1 at the moment but I need to build a pedalboard that will fit under it.

Essentially I'm looking for the width and depth of the space on the left between the sustain pedal and the legs (ie on the left hand side) if that makes sense.

Appreciated! Thanks

You have 22 inches of clearance from the left side of the sustain pedal to the inside edge of the bottom of the back left leg.

Distance from bottom of front leg to bottom of back leg is 24 inches.

That front to back measurement is center to center....  So you only have 23 inches of clearance between the legs if you want your pedal board to stick out that side.

My measurements were taken with the legs in the normal position (adjusted to their shortest length).  If you are a circus freak, and play your Rhodes with the legs extended, then you will have a little bit more space.  BTW, the measurements were taken on a 1979 73-key Rhodes Mark I stage piano with the cross braces installed, so it should match your Rhodes.
