Scarbee Classic EP-88s (and Scarbee Mark 1) would not exist without this man: James Garfield the co-creator of the Rhodes Super Site (FenderRhodes.com). The information on his site has been essential for my knowledge and ability to restore and setup the keyboards for recording - so he has all my respect and admiration. We share true love to vintage keyboards.
James Garfield says about SCARBEE CLASSIC EP-88S:
“Featuring idiosyncrasies like bass tine twang and damper pedal noise, there's no virtual Rhodes more realistic than the EP-88s.”
James Garfield is a keyboardist/bassist born and raised in the Greater Philadelphia Area, currently living in San Francisco's East Bay. James was a student of Oberlin Conservatory's Technology In Music And Related Arts (TIMARA) program in the early 90s. He is the co-creator of the Rhodes Super Site (FenderRhodes.com) and has been a professional Web Designer/Developer since 1997.
“Scarbee VSTi's are an integral part of my work flow. Musically, NOTHING.., not one single note, is started without the inclusion of my Scarbee Vintage Keys, and Scarbee MM-Bass. If you are looking for vintage electric pianos and basses, offering that timeless touch to your compositions.., look no further than Scarbee.., PERIOD!!!”
Bass Player/Keyboard Player/Guitar Player/ Producer of The Whispers
“For years now my no1 Rhodes has been the Scarbee Mark 1. Bar none. There was just nothing else that came even close. Well now he has out done himself again with the new EP-88! It’s a whole new flavor of Scarbee perfection you have to just experience to believe. Just get it and you can thank me later!”
“I fell in love with Scarbee’s original Mark I Rhodes and JUST when you thought it couldn’t get any better... BAM! Thomas does it AGAIN! This masterpiece of a Rhodes has now taken my compositions to a whole new level. As a solo improvisational artist, I'm coming up with improvs that are unlike anything I have done before. Thanks Thomas for the years of hard work you put in to giving keyboardists around the world your very best!”
