dULCITONE1900²


Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800's, and with allegedly only 2000 in existence the DULCITONE is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries to hump around remote African village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a very basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks. Its a bit like a Fender Rhodes electric piano without the electric bits, and has a very lovely woody, clonky glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.

This is the lovely sister to Dulcitone1884², a 16-year younger beauty with a slightly jinglier and more even tone which really compliments the butch woody clunk of the 1884 version.

Think of dULCITONE1900² as Keira Knightly and Dulcitone1884² as Kristin Scott Thomas.....or maybe whatshisface in Twilight compared to George Clooney.

Seven velocity layers of binaural recording add up to around 500mb of samples. There's a wee video of her in action which tells you more about her than can be put into words.
