Dubreq’s Pianomate is an extraordinary box of tricks, designed to augment the acoustic tone of a piano creating an electronic and acoustic sound together like a hybrid synth. Two bars with sensors rest on the keyboards and are wired in to an amp and speaker build into the Pianomate box. The bars - treble and bass - respond to the piano playing, and when the piano key is pressed, a Pianomate tonebar key drops down, creating the note. This results in a synth sound, that is warm like the 350s Stylophone but is polyphonic. The Pianomate has controls for Balance, Voice (including flute and organ), and Volume. It also comes with a volume pedal.
