Fender Rhodes

Old Music Encyclopedia Picture     The Rhodes piano is an electro-mechanical piano, invented by Harold Rhodesduring the fifties and later manufactured in a number of models, first in collaboration with Fender and after 1965 by CBS.

     The first Fender Rhodes product was the Fender Rhodes Piano Bass, a 32-note model. No other models were mass-produced until after the CBS takeover of Fender in 1965. Shortly afterwards the 73 key Fender Rhodes Electric Piano went into production.

     The Rhodes piano enjoyed a resurgence of popularity beginning in the 1990s   with contemporary artists highlighting the instrument, including Portishead, D'Angelo, Chick Corea, Jamiroquai, Herbie Hancock, Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder.
