Specs

Limited Edition Design: Crafted with sustainability in mind, the MK8 Earth Edition features a unique design inspired by lush forests. Each piano is fashioned from sustainable American Walnut with a sandblasted wooden base and hand-turned, sustainably sourced walnut legs, accentuating the natural grain and beauty of the wood.

Custom Finish: Metal parts of the piano are adorned with a custom stable rust effect coating, ensuring a distinct pattern on each component, making every piano truly one-of-a-kind. Custom inlays and side panels, enhanced with black dial inserts, add sophistication to the aesthetic.

Exclusive Colour Scheme: The forest green lid and pedal cover offer a natural style exclusive to this limited edition. The pedal also features an American Walnut 'R' logo badge.

Eco-conscious Construction: In line with sustainable practices, the piano incorporates eco- conscious elements throughout its construction. The piano lid is crafted from sustainable, recycled ABS material, ensuring durability while minimising environmental impact. All wood used in construction is FSC-certified, promoting forest preservation and sustainable forestry practices.

Analogue Preamp & Effects: True analogue signal path with various controls, including VOLUME, DRIVE, ENVELOPE FILTER, PARAMETRIC RESONANT EQ, and VARI-PAN with audio rate modulation. Expression pedal control allows for functions like mid sweep, wah, volume, pan speed, and depth. It also features a custom stereo analogue effect processor with VCA COMPRESSOR, PHASER, BUCKET BRIGADE CHORUS, and DELAY, with modulation speed and mix controlled via expression pedal. FX rates and delay mix/time are adjustable, too.

Power Supply: 15-Volt, universal voltage external supply with 4-pin locking XLR.

Keyboard & Pickups: 73-note Rhodes custom spruce keyboard by Kluge Klaviaturen GmbH, with oak and beech keyframe. Precision-wound alnico pickups with anti-slip adjustment and flat- ended pickup heads.

Action & Tone Generation: Custom high-impact ABS hammers and combs, aerospace-grade damper combs, and black natural wool damper felts. Precision steel tines and tonebars, sustainably sourced Baltic birch tine and pickup rails.

Connectivity: Balanced XLR and 1/4" jack outputs, all usable simultaneously, with direct pickup output with FX loop, and a headphone jack with independent amp/volume control.

Pedal: The piano pedal connector is twist-lock with flexi cable, featuring a chrome aluminium footplate and non-slip mat.

Stand: The telescopic, powder-coated black steel frame with mirror-chrome steel and height- adjustable front legs now includes screw-in walnut legs and rust-effect steel cross-braces. It also folds compactly for easy transport.
