The Fender Rhodes pianos are a type of electromechanical instrument that, like an acoustic piano, generates sound with keys and hammers, but instead of strings, the hammers strike thin metal tines which vibrate between an electromagnetic pickup. They are considered “classics” and among the most iconic keyboard instruments of the 1960s and 70s, with notable users including The Doors, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Oscar Peterson, Miles Davis, and Chick Corea. The instrument is still in high demand today, revered for its unique tone and portable nature.
