Fender Rhodes Mark 1 piano (also known as the Fender Rhodes piano or simply Fender Rhodes or Rhodes) is an electric piano invented by Harold Rhodes, which became particularly popular throughout the 1970s. Like a piano, it generates sound using keys and hammers, but instead of strings, the hammers strike thin metal tines, which are then amplified via an electromagnetic pickup which is plugged into an external keyboard amplifier and speaker.

The Yamaha CP-70 Electric Grand Piano was introduced in the mid-70's and produced until the mid-80's and during that time was the standard touring piano used by just about every major artist and group. The CP-70 has hammers and strings just like a normal piano, and a piezoelectric pick-up system that converts the string vibration into an audio signal. The CP-70 has a warm, smooth sustain and is not as percussive as a grand piano  users in the 70's include musicians that range from Stevie Wonder, ELO, Genesis, Boston, Hall and Oates, Journey, etc. In the 80's you had bands such as Asia, U2 (songs like New Years Day, October, etc.), and british pop such as Howard Jones, Made famous most by Prince was heavily used on Purple Rain 

1959 Wurlitzer 120 Tube Piano  inventor Benjamin Miessner had designed an amplified conventional upright piano in 1935, and Wurlitzer used his electrostatic pickup design, but replaced the strings with struck steel reeds. The instrument entered production in 1954 as the EP-110, followed by the 111 and 112 of 1955, and continued to be produced in various forms until about 1982 when production of the 200A ceased. Made famous by Ray Charles on What I Say Marvin Gaye I heard It through the Grapevine and The Carpenters 

1869 Steinway Square Grand Piano During the 19th Century, many of Steinway's famous patents and claims to early fame were because of their square grand pianos. This beautiful piano was built by the famous Steinway & Sons Piano Company in 1869 one of the first when Henry  Steinway made his transition to New York, a time when Steinway built more square pianos than uprights and grand pianos combined. The case is made of beautifully carved Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Rococo Victorian style. 

The ASR-10 stands for the Advanced Sampling Recorder produced by Ensoniq between 1992 and 1998. One Of the few samplers made with analog filters and was heavily used by Atomic Babies, Autechre, Rammstein, Jimmy Edgar, Black Lung, Rabbit in the Moon, Timbaland, Pharell Williams (Neptunes), The Alchemist, Kanye West. and Devante Swing (Jodeci )

Studio Electronics SE-1 Analog Synthesizer (Moog& Oberhiem )

Seen where the sound of success was heard, the SE-1 recreated the power of the classic Moog tone and far more. The distinctive Oberheim filter and numerous additional features helped to make this Hiphop and R&B legend the serious professional's source for the boominest basses and smoothest, wormiest leads on the planet.


The SE-1X continues in this tradition, remaining true to its roots, while stepping up its functionality and form, wide open to future expansion and exploration via its Flash-ROM operating system and dedicated creativity of its supernal sound designers.

The Hammond Organ is an electric organ, invented by Laurens Hammond and John M. Hanert[6]and first manufactured in 1935.[7] Various models have been produced, most of which use sliding drawbars to create a variety of sounds. Until 1975, Hammond organs generated sound by creating an electric current from rotating a metal tonewheel near an electromagnetic pickup, and then strengthening the signal with an amplifier so it can drive a speaker cabinet. Around two million Hammond organs have been manufactured. The organ is commonly used with, and associated with, the Leslie speaker.

Akai Mpc 4000 Midi Production Center More than just a sampling drum machine, for the first time, the MPC4000 Plus supports not only conventional Drum programs but also gives you the choice of selecting Keygroup programs allowing you to play 'conventional' multi-sampled sounds such as piano, bass, strings, synth, etc., from a keyboard just like our rack mount samplers. Furthermore, it is compatible with the largest variety of sound libraries: Akai S1000, S3000 and XL series, S5/S6000, Z4/Z8, MPC2000XL, MPC3000, Roland S700 series, and EMU 3 and 4 series.

(2017 Akai MPC LIVE completely redefines the portable sampler workstation. It includes most of the key elements that make the MPC X freakishly cool, trading a share of surface-level control, the extended I/O, and some screen size for a lightweight and compact body that can run on rechargeable battery power. Like its big brother, the MPC Live actually runs the MPC 2.0 software platform for completely standalone operation, but you can also connect it to your computer. A set of 16 amazing pads, four Q-Link encoders plus a master encoder, dedicated buttons, and a 7" multi-touch display deliver an impressive amount of control, so although this MPC is more complex than any old-school model, you'll never find one that's easier to learn than the MPC Live.
