An electric piano is a keyboard instrument which combines mechanical sound production with electrical amplification. The first electric piano, the Neo-Bechstein, was developed in Germany in the 1930's [1]. other instruments followed, notably the Rhodes piano, until the advent of electronic keyboards which use analog or digital synthesis techniques to produce sound.
