We tried hooking the Rhodes to different amps but never got the sound we were looking for so we had to take a few steps back and do some research. Talking to Jay Graydon, Ian Eales and David Foster and reading an interview with Humberto Gatica in an 80's RE/P Magazine we pieced together how they achieved the classic sound.
The Rhodes used on most westcoast records in those days was a Suitcase Piano (active preamp) provided by "Leeds Rentals" called E-Rhodes by its label - "E". The signal was DI'd to the mixing console. We had to compensate for the passive preamp in our Stage model somehow. Finally, we tried a Bass Sansamp with surprisingly good results.
The second part of the story was splitting the Rhodes signal in two and running one through a Boss CE-1 Chorus pedal. The clean signal and the chorus signal was then panned to left and right. Voilá, the westcoast sound!
