About the Storytone–
A rare and historically important instrument, the RCA Storytone piano was built in 1939 in a joint venture between Story & Clark and RCA, and designed by John Vassos. The first American electric piano, it debuted at the 1939 World's Fair and has an art deco/streamline design that rivals that of the finest furniture of the era.
The piano has normal strings and action but no soundboard -- the sound is amplified through electromagnetic pickups, circuitry and a speaker system. It works perfectly and sounds exceptionally great for sustained styles of playing, as notes can last up to a minute or more with its unique form of resonance. It sounds much more like a real piano than a Rhodes, Wurlitzer or Helpinstill, and fuller and thicker than a Yamaha CP-70 or Kawai EP-308.
