When I get bored I setup the rig I wish I had on stage

So I got bored today, and lined up my ode to Apex stands. Then i setup what I would have onstage if I had the space, time, and roadie to help :)

 

Who cares if it's not practical? To me, it's all about fun. (see my rotating stand thread).

 

We are actually playing a very large festival-type show where we're the only band later this year. Very large stage. I may just set this up. Just because.

 

Did I ever tell ya I have an absolute blast doing all this stuff?

Thanks David, I wish I could paint keyboards like that.

If your really bored there's a clip i did called "Gang of Five"

it's just me blabbin' about the keyboards, but I do have a

funny voice. Again that might be against forum rules.

 

Anyways please post a video when you've got the spinning stand

going on stage.

Best to You

Looks like a cool set-up! Out of curiosity, what is the most keyboards on a live stage have you guys seen (either IRL, pics or video)? I mean for one performer.. Rick Wakeman? I counted 10 in one pic... Any crazy pics out there? :laugh:

 

Chemical Brothers. I think I counted something like 20 - and that was just what I could see, not counting any VI's, etc. They had lots of analogs and modulars. I think part of the reason they had so many is that in some cases, they'd have one keyboard set up for one sound in one song.

Front - Rhodes Chroma and CX-3

Right - BX-3, Solina, Minimoog

 

I didn't own all that stuff - it was 2 rigs the other keyboard player on the bill and I combined. :D

Great rigs guys. :cool:

 

 

You might think JMJ's rig is desirable, based on his excellent video here ... :thu:

and a little less desirable based on this video here ... :facepalm:
