Product Description

Harold Rhodes’ legendary electro-mechanical tine piano returns. Precision-built in the UK with the finest hand-selected materials.

ORDER INFO:

Rhodes makes around 50 pianos each month. All piano orders are assembled chronologically: if your purchase is order #273, your piano will be built directly after #272.

Depending on the demand, there may be a wait before it is the turn of your MK8 piano to be assembled by the Rhodes team.

Once you have placed your order, we aim to have your custom Rhodes MK8 in your hands as soon as we can.

Optimising the iconic sound of the Rhodes piano, the MK8 offers considerable improvements in tone, touch, intonation and dynamics. All critical components – including tines, pickups, dampers and pedal mechanism – have been redesigned from the ground up, using only the highest quality materials and the very best in contemporary manufacturing techniques.
