Hohner Pianet T : Recensione di moosers (content in English)
The Hohner Pianet T is an analog electric piano. It comes in a suitcase style casing and doesn't have any legs or any setting controls whatsoever, so you what you hear is what you get. It doesn't have a sustain pedal or an option for one either, so in terms of versatility, you're pretty limited here. Having said this, I'm actually a pretty big fan of this electric piano for a few different reasons. For starters, it's in the same vein as a Fender Rhodes or a Wurlitzer electric piano, which is a sound that in general I can't get enough of. It definitely has it's distinctions, but it is a similar type of electric piano as those models. It has a brighter sound than the aforementioned electric pianos, as the only knock on the sound that I really have would be that it lacks a bit of low end. Unlike the Fender Rhodes, which is great for keyboard bass, I wouldn't use the Pianet T for any sort of bass sounds. Rather, it's great for high lead parts or mid range electric piano parts. While I wouldn't use it in every situation if I had a choice, there are some situations where I might want to use it over a Rhodes or a Wulri. The bottom line is that even though it's not a very versatile electric piano, it has a great sound for what it can do. It brings a new color to the table that wouldn't be the same when compared to other instruments, making it unique in every way. I don't know how much the Hohner Pianet T would run you, but I would imagine that if you could find one it would be a bit less than a Rhodes or a Wurlitzer. If you like vintage keyboards, the Pianet T is a must try!
