The Clavinet is a type of electro-mechanical keyboard instrument built by the Hohner company of Trossingen, West Germany from 1964 to the early 1980s. It is essentially an electrically amplified clavichord, analogous to an electric guitar. Various models were produced over the years designated as I, II, L, C, D6, E7 and Duo. Its distinctive bright staccato sound has appeared particularly in funk, disco, rock, and reggae songs.
