Hohner Clavinet D6


The Clavinet was originally intended for home use, playing European classical and folk music. It soon found its way to some of the most influential recordings in the history of pop and rock music.

Each key on a Clavinet has a small rubber tip that directly strikes a guitar-like string, which is then amplified by the pickups. The fact that the keys are in direct contact with the strings makes it easy to play fast rhythmic patterns. The original Clavinet D6 had two pickups with a six-core design and filter selectors. This sound faithfully reproduces the four different pick-up variations available on the original instrument.

Sound demos


The Clavinet demos were processed with small amount of the Nord Piano internal "Room 1" reverb. The second half of each demo were additionally processed with the Nord Piano internal "A-Wa1" effect.
