EP6 Sparkletop Vintage '67

2011-03-21

Our Sparkletop is a real vintage beauty, born during the summer of love in 1967 and was recently refurbished in the US with new felt-hammers. The timbre is set to "ideal".

In 1965 the new tine based Electric Pianos became available in several configurations and all the pianos manufactured during this period featured wooden piano hammers (felt-covered, teardrop shape) and non-tapered Ray-Mac tines. This combination produced the raw, bell-like sound heard on many famous recordings. It is set to "ideal timbre", with a "medium miking" distance.
