The piano—perhaps more than any other single instrument—conveys the whole range of musical thoughts and emotions like nothing else can. EK features stunning Piano models, including a Steinway Grand piano, Yamaha Grand piano, a classic upright piano, Celeste, and even a Toy Piano for times when you need a taste of something different.
If the electric piano is more your thing, you will absolutely love the Essential Keyboard Collection. Incredibly authentic, both in playability and sound, EK features all the classic models including the Rhodes Mark I and Mark II, Wurlitzer, Clavinet, and a hard to find Pianet.
There are very few truly unique instrumental sounds in the world of music. Sounds so distinct, so compelling, so immediately identifiable and genuine that you just have to have it.
One of these really great, unmistakable instrumental sounds is the tonewheel organ, used by many great rock, soul and jazz artists in the 1960’s to 1980’s. Unforgettable musicians like Stevie Winwood, Jon Lord of Deep Purple, Jimmy Smith and Richard “Groove” Holmes used tonewheel organs to great musical effect. The Essential Keyboard Collection includes 20 tonewheel organ presets designed to cover jazz, rock, pop and other music styles.
If you’re looking for something more traditional, EK offers a church organ, Celeste, and 4 harpsichord models for classical or worship productions.
