This is my Yamaha Grand Piano model G3. It's a 6' 1" Grand with a polished ebony finish. I bought this at an auction in Orlando Florida 1990. When I shipped it from Orlando to Montgomery it arrived still in tune! Unbelievable quality. Yamaha grands are manufactured in Hamamatsu, Japan with a tolorance of 2 Ten Thousanths of an inch.
1957 Hammond B3 Organ. Cherry Wood. Mint Condition. I spent 30+ years searching for this perfect instrument. I was working at Forbes Piano in Montgomery when an old lady walked in the store and asked if we bought old organs. You can imagine my excitement when I discovered that she was the original owner.
1958 Hammond C3 Organ Oak Wood. I bought this Albino beauty from a Church that purchased it new in 1958. It has been serviced regularly over the years & plays & sounds Awesome.
These are my two Korg Karmas. This is what I use now when I play live. I MIDI these two babys up for way cool sounds. They cover the basic Piano, Organ, Strings, Clavinet & Horn sounds. That's an Ensoniq Sampling keyboard in the background. I have retired it to mostly recording projects.
Bottom Hammond Organ model L100. This is the organ I lugged across Canada in the 70s. Keith Emerson (ELP) used this same model. Two Keyboards, two sets of drawbars. Simple & easy to transport. Sitting on top is a 60s Wurlitzer Electronic Piano. The Doors made this keyboard famous. That's an antique Hamilton Mantel clock top left.
Bottom is my 70s Fender Rhodes 73 key Electric Piano. I play this daily. One of my favorites. Sitting on top is a Hohner D6 Clavinet. RCA Records bought this for me. Purchased from Strings & Things Music in Memphis 1977. Teac Reel to Reel model X-10R. I use this to play my archive of studio recordings. Good old Conn Strobe Tuner. Helps keep my acoustic stuff in tune.
Taylor & Farley Pump Organ. Built in Worchester Mass. before the Civil War in the 1820's. The owner was moving away & didn't want to hassle with moving it. He heard that I was a collector & offered it to me for free if I would just come and get it. An offer I couldn't Refuse!
Emerson Upright Acoustic Piano. Built 1840. Forbes Piano company in Montgomery was taking this beautiful piano to the dump. It was covered in 100 years+ dirt & grime. I asked them could I have it since they were discarding it. They delivered it to my house & I spent many hours cleaning & restoring it. Hand carved Solid Mahogany. The Damper Pedals are solid Silver! One man's trash is anouther man's treasure! So cool to see the the hammers moving through the carved leaf panel. Has a great "Honky Tonk" sound.
