The most striking design element is the forest-green top. Even the pedal cover sports this unique color. The base and hand-turned legs are sandblasted to highlight the natural grain of the wood, making each instrument unique. The metal parts feature a special rust effect coating (although they’re not really rusty, of course!). Moreover, beautiful custom inlays and side panels give the Rhodes MK8 Earth Edition an especially sophisticated look.

According to Rhodes, the MK8 Earth Edition features eco-conscious materials. The wooden parts are made from FSC-certified American Walnut, while the cover consists of recycled ABS. In addition to this, Rhodes says that it will plant 500 trees per unit sold to support global reforestation efforts. The manufacturer plans to make 50 instruments, bringing the total to 25,000 trees.

On the technical side of things, the special edition comes with the (normally optional) effects unit pre-installed. This includes a VCA compressor, 4-stage phaser, and bucket brigade chorus and delay effects.
