Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

The Tubon!!!!!

I saw Donny Osmond of all people, playing one back on the old Donny and Marie TV show. It actually might be the first strap on keyboard I ever saw, and despite Donny Osmond not exactly being a keyboard hero of mine, I wanted one bad!

I never saw one again and began to wonder if I had imagined it, but now thanks to that site, I know it really existed!


Stage: Korg Krome 88.
Home: Korg Kross 61, Yamaha reface CS, Korg SP250, Korg mono/poly Kawai ep 608, Korg m1, Yamaha KX-5

Nice, except the picture of Zep's John Paul Jones playing the GX-1 at Knebworth in 1978 is actually Emo. Even though you can't see the face, Carl Palmer's Stainless Steel drum set is a dead giveaway.

Good spot, I thought it didn't look like JPJ. My mind is blown with the amount of gear!

I liked the Arturia name plate on the picture of the SCI Prophet V.
