What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Le piano Phoenix is a genuine breakthrough innovation, one of its kind in the whole world!

4 years of research and development (R&D) conducted by 67 mechanical engineers, has made it possible to restore the same uncompromising sound as produced by a concert grand piano ; its touch is ten-fold more precise than all existing digital pianos. Besides, the Phoenix can boast a more than 10-hour autonomy and its revolutionary triptych system allows carrying it around in the boot of the car, on the train and even by plane! It is now possible to play at the seaside, in the mountains, in a park or in a cramped apartment!

 

The industrialization phase is being finalized and orders are already pouring in. Kickstarter will create an early adopters community who will work hand-in-hand with us over a 6-month period, to optimize the product while testing it in real life: holding / grip zones, types of handles/wheels on the suitcase, options linked to the application, locator pins on the frame… End-users’ feedback will be fully taken into consideration to help us finalize the most beautiful modern-times piano, thanks to musicians’ considerate and constructive cooperation!

Wether it's to an open-air event, to travel through the country or while on vacation, take your Phoenix anywhere!

The Phoenix's high-end electronics were developed in France to provide the full power necessary to achieve the sound of a concert grand piano. Real time algorithmic calculation modeling (sympathetic resonance, bowed strings, hammer noises, infinite polyphony…).

The Phoenix piano belongs to craftwork. 580 components, prestige speakers, a state-of-the-art amplifier and high assembling time. Each piano is unique!

Community members will be rewarded by purchasing the piano with upon up to 40% discount on the final purchase price! You can be the first to grab that opportunity!

 

 

The H console  

The Phoenix piano is chock-full with innovation! The H console is elegant, absolutely stable and very compact ; it blocks the sustain pedal and fosters a playing position similar to that of an acoustic piano (height under frame and distance to pedals : identical to the condition of a grand piano!)

 

 

 

 

 

We have to compress audio to mp3 to upload on Kickstarter, the sound may not be good as it can be. Check out on our Soundcloud to listen with a better sound quality.

Please note that all fx sounds can be adjusted with the official mobile app.

Unique in the world: with more than 10-hour autonomy, the Phoenix piano enables you to enjoy its wealth of various sounds at the seaside, in the mountains or in a park! The way you think and practice has entered a new era !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                     

 

 

Risks and challenges

For over 4 years, we have tackled all the technical hurdles standing in the way: designing and manufacturing an innovative hinge to permit perfect juxtaposition of outside parts to the central component, a more than 250 kg resistance; and developing an aluminum chassis, applying outside wooden panels to provide the same furniture vibrations as felt when playing an acoustic piano.
Moreover, we have developed very upscale and original electronics for a digital piano: the amplifier is extremely powerful; the motherboard supports all the features typical of acoustic pianos, with outstanding calculation speed, producing a literally infinite range of sounds, just like an acoustic piano, and without any saturation.
The Phoenix can boast a velocity of up to 1300 levels per note as against a 128-level M.I.D.I signal, enabling the pianist to seek out the same sound as with an acoustic piano.

The real risk today is we might have to cope with such great demand that the company would not be able to deliver all musicians who have opted for a Phoenix piano. That is why we hope to combine the useful with the pleasant by minimizing orders through the creation of a « Phoenix » community, thereby warranting a gradual, controlled and sustainable development of the production line and restocking.

In France, the first pianos are planned for delivery by September and October 2017. 30 pianos were ordered between May and July 2017. They are currently being built and we commit to supply in due time all deliverables scheduled by Kickstarter as of March 2018.
