    not sure if this is where to ask, anyone have experience with these. They are the fender/rhodes pianos (the doors used them) small in a suit case. Can they be hooked up to a bass amp or do they need a keyboard amp. Thanks!!!

    Use a bass amp. They gave a pretty convincing bass tone. I wouldn't mind having one now, tho' I hated them at the time.
  3. Keyboard amp, definitely.

    My keyboard player has been using one for years. :) :)

    Theres's a local band in the Motown area caleed "The Muggs", there bass player had a stroke a few years ago. Tony worked on his left hand and taught himself to play bass on a rhodes, he still dosen't have use of his right hand, but he gets a pretty convincing sound with his rhodes and a bass amp. These guys are a pretty good blues rock band. I saw them blow mountain off the stage last year.

    Didn't everyone? ;)

    As far as amps, did they even have "Keyboard" amps back in the daze of The Doors?
    My vote is for a '60s Bassman with the 2x12 cab. ;)
