  • What is your dream vintage keyboard?

    If I could wave a magic wand and give you any vintage keyboard on the planet, which one would you want?

    Would it be a vintage Steinway or some other piano? Or a B-3? Or maybe a Clav? Baldwin Electric Harpsichord anyone? How about a Minimoog or other monosynth? Or maybe a Moog Modular or ARP 2600? Is your dream vintage board a polysynth like a Prophet 5 or a Obie OB-Xa? Or maybe something harder to find, like a Rhodes Chroma or a Yamaha CS-80?

    Hey, pick what you want - but you only get one. What's it going to be?

    When I first read the topic heading, I immediatly thought ARP 2600 or Moog Modular, but then I read the body of your post. And if I only get one... it's becomes an easy choice for me. Steinway concert grand.

      Well, maybe if you ask nice, I might be able to wave the magic wand twice...

          When I say you only get one, that wasn't intended to mean it would be your only keyboard for life - what I meant is I'm only going to be able to magically give you one keyboard (or maybe two if you ask nice ) - you're still welcome to keep any other keyboards you already have, or that you can get in other ways.

              Would be my choice too, with a very large room and a tech to keep it in bestest condition; also fitted with the latest midi or whatever too. Could also be a shelter from the storm. The soundboard could be cover from incoming. 'tis why it's called a Grand piano.

                I could really dig a Yamaha CS80 but too I'd like a Jupiter 8 or Prophet 10.

                  I was fortunate enough to go to a school that had an old Steinway 9' grand. It was one of the first pianos that I learned on. I found a way to get into the auditorium when it was locked and would spend hours with that piano.

                  If I could have one of those magically appear then that would certainly be my choice.
                  As a human being, you come with the whole range of inner possibilities
                  from the deepest hell to the highest states.

                  It is up to you which one you choose to explore
                  .

                    Tough choice, but I'll go with the Prophet ~5 if I only get one.

                          Well, my Prophet REV2 arrived a couple of days ago. Not quite the same as the Prophet ~5, but I'm pretty giddy about this thing.

                            Congratulations!

                            Did you get the 16 voice, or the 8 voice version?
