MOTU Electric Keys – 12 Soundbänke

Electro -mechanical Keyboards

These four keyboard models spanned the decade of the 1960's and helped shape the sound of classic rock keys...


This keyboard operated almost like a harpsichord, using small rubber plectra to pluck small steel blades. It featured a vibrato and a few filters named after instrument names (metallophone, xylophone, music box, etc.).


The blades in this reed instrument are constructed to allow chords. There is also a lever to activate the plectrum mechanism.


This German electric piano, initially developed for educational purposes, operated quite similarly to the Classic Electric Piano, along with vibrating reeds.

Led Zeppelin

Planet M

The sound of this keyboard came from metal reeds plucked by foam pads. The vibration was then transmitted via electrostatic pickups to an amplifier. Used by these artists:

The Zombies
The Kingsmen
The Beatles
And many more...
