This group is for everybody who loves music that features one of the best keyboards ever made: the MELLOTRON!

In the late 60s, groups like The Beatles, King Crimson and The Moody Blues introduced the Mellotron to rock music.
Now it was possible to create an orchestral sound without any "real" instruments, because the mellotron could play-back tapes with original recordings of violins, brass, choir, flutes, vibes and many other instruments.

Especially in the early 70s the Mellotron became very important for the progressive rock movement and was used by many musicians - as a result it can be heared on nearly every record by ProgRock giants Yes, Genesis and King Crimson.

Even today a few bands use a mellotron because of its unique sound, e.g. Anekdoten, Liquid Scarlet and Oasis.
