i was actually thinking about posting this before the 'what's jcyphe got?' thread, but now seems like a good time to follow that up. i know this is a guitar forum first and foremost, but i'm interested in what everyone has in addition to stringed instruments.

i was a keyboard player for years before taking up the guitar, and spent a lot of my teenage years (and most of my student loans) buying them. when i started the technology wasn't anywhere near as good as it is today, i mean, if you wanted a decent hammond, rhodes or wurlitzer sound you really had to buy the originals, whereas now i couldn't tell you the difference between the real thing and a nord electro (through a PA with my eyes shut, anyway).

here's my collection (not actual photos, they're all in hibernation at the moment)

1980 rhodes stage 73 mark II:



early 60s vox continental:



roland juno 106:



60s philips philicorda:



60s hammond L00 and leslie (can't remember the leslie model, 122 maybe):



plus a MIDI controller keyboard and a couple of modules. if i ever buy another keyboard it'd probably be a second synth, but something small-ish.

what key machines hide in shortscalers' metaphorical closets?

Alesis Micron + KP3 (i know the kp3 isnt a keyboard, but they are kind of joined at the hip).



Also have a normal upright piano in the house, its not mine though. Just a family piano thing, its nice though.

I had one of them Vox continentals, bought it off some old hippy muso in Falmouth Cornwall who said it belonged to the guy from the Specials. I sold it on to some Vox keyboard collector as i soon lost patience with learing the keyboard.

This thread is gonna be awesome.

I presently don't have any Keyboards or Synths. Growing up I always had Casio Keyboards and my aunt had one of those home organs with a spinning speaker. It was not a Hammond, I think it was a Wurlitzer.

I love the cheesy sound of the Philicorda, you got some great stuff Stewart.

could possibly be a lowry... i'm sure some of them had inbuilt rotating speakers, not sure if they were available in the US though.

i think the only other organ i'd ever want to own (and i really want one) is a farfisa compact duo. the early pink floyd / country joe & the fish sounds just make me salivate.



edit: i think it's spelt lowrey. it might not even be one of those though.

I haven't got any photos up yet, but will get a few tomorrow.

i have a moog prodigy that i got cheap a few years ago, has that mini moog sound, good for bass too.

Hammond L122 with matching leslie, mainly as my forum name gives away, i love 70's progressive rock.

Viscount B3 clone. it's digital and only one manual, but sounds pretty good.

i also have a very battered and half working mellotron M400

Oddly enough, I know for a fact that the Brothers Chap use one of them (or something very similar)- every now and then I hear noises from my childhood within Homestar toons. Most awesome.

I have a Casio VL-1 since I was a little kid:

it's a monophonic analog synth. it has a sequencer and an ADSR mode to program your own tones.

I also have a Casio CT-310 that I found in the trash. I can't find a picture of it right now.... will edit when I do

I'm in love with the korg DS-10 'cause everything I make with it sounds like it could in a home star runner toon, I love the music in that. Not quite sure why.

Also the keyboard mage posted IS the keyboard keyboard strong bad's head is based on.

It's the exact one, picture from one of the puppet toons where the cheat plays it:


I know wayyy to much about home star runner, seriously, it consumed my life for a long time.

I have a Radio Shack version of a Casio Keyboard WK-133 or something like that I got from NICK. I use it midi to trigger samples in protools via sampletank and reason.





And this old Baldwin Organ with rotating speaker from a neighbor for FREE.
