What's the oldest/vintage synth you gig with regularly?

I have repurposed my Yamaha S03 for use in my church to play bass/brass, pads, ep splits. It's midi'd to a Casio PX-330 for a better keyboard feel. The sound quality from the unit is so good.

What other old synths are you folks still getting good use from?

Hammond SK1, Casio PX5s, Motif ES rack, Kawai MP5, Kawai ESS110, Yamaha S03, iPad, and a bunch of stuff in the closet.

I used to gig with my Jupiter 6 until it got stolen about 9 years ago.

 

Don't know if it counts since it's just a controller, but I currently gig with an A70.

Not exactly 'vintage', yet, but the oldest synth I use regularly is a Roland XV-5080 - w/Ultimate Keys SRX, and a couple of SR-JV cards. It's racked up for a weekly, church gig. Works well with a Casio XW-P1 as controller / layering source.

I take an old SH-101 out once in a while. It sort of sucks but it has a cheezy Lo-fi vibe that works on some songs.

 

D-50 sometimes also but that still doesn't feel like an old board to me.

I can't compete with a minimoog but I still regularly use my korg m1 and plan to use my korg mono/poly circa 1980 or so in the near future.

 

I've also used my Yanaha cs-01 a few times recently and in June used my Yamaha kx-5 remote midi'd to the m1.

I'm playing a 1912 Chickering Grand every day. It's the piano I learned on, I've been playing since I was 4, and I'm 50.

Gig-wise the oldest thing I use is my Alesis QS7; I programmed quite a few sounds that I still perform with.

 

I keep threatening to bring my Polysix to a gig but I'd rather not it be outdoors (which many of our gigs have been). It works fine but don't want to subject it to the elements.

Jupiter 6 w/Europa. A reliable, versatile true analog to incorporate with the digital stuff. The Juno 60 w/Minerva also goes out on occasion.

I mostly play bass nowadays, but I have a Moog Opus 3 that I use at gigs for a few songs, mostly intros or special effects.

 

I might start bringing one of my clavinets, just because I still haven't found a band looking for a clavinet player, so might as well play it in the band I'm in now.

My Alesis Ion. Occasionally I'll bring out my Roland VR-760 (V-Combo) for gigs, but I'm looking to sell that one soon to thin out the herd.

Nord Stage 2 SW73, Kurzweil PC3LE7, Moog Sub 37, Alesis Ion, Rhodes Stage 73, Moog Werkstatt-01, Yamaha CP-300
