ELECTRIC PIANOS – REED
R&B Reed Electric Piano
The reed-based electric pianos are THE sound for keyboards on a lot of classic funk, rock and Motown recordings. Listen to the first few bars of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and you will know that sound. This piano can be smooth and melodic or you can really smack hard on the keys to get a percussive effect on top of your baseline. You can also add in some Vibrato with the Mod/FX and set it to fast to recreate the sound used on lots of funk tracks.
When it comes to classic tones, the reed-based electric pianos have provided unforgettable hits including The Faces’ “Stay With Me,” Supertramp’s “Logical Song” and, of course, Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through The Grapevine.”
