This is an interesting little classic. The sound is very cool and very useful. Somewhere between a Rhodes and a Wurlitzer. With effects and careful playing, it can sound like either. This is a very compact unit. The 'T' model can be packed up (it has a keyboard cover and music stand) and easily carried by one person. The sound generation is electro-mechanical. All you need to do is plug in an amp. No mains lead, even! There is no facility for plugging in an expression pedal. The keyboard feel is quite good. Very reliable and easy to gig. The tuning seems to be spot on whatever you do. The Pianet was played by a lot of big names, including The Beatles, Genesis, Rod Argent, Roxy Music and Led Zeppelin ('Stairway to Heaven').

Comments About the Sounds:
Pure electric piano. It comes from the same family as the Clavinet so the sound is quite funky.
