An Andreas Christensen upright piano, and a Domus pastorale digital organ at my

apartment. At my parents' house a Roland Rhodes mk80 digital piano, a yamaha s-03

synthesizer, a Søren Jensen grand-piano and a well functioning pump-organ.

Just been browsing some threads that I usually don't and saw this one. Always fun to see what others have. I note with interest a couple of Chapman Sticks - Nice! One of far too many things on my wish list.

Well, as an organist, I'd love nothing better than a house big enough for a decent practice instrument, but ...


My wife is also a musician so between us we have (apart from occasional unhealthy competition ;)):

Acoustic instruments
Yamaha G2 1/2 grand piano (hers mostly but I play it an awful lot)
2 violins - 1 of them electric (hers only - the only thing I've ever done with a violin bow is rub it down the edge of cymbals)
Classical guitar (w pickup)
Mandolin
Dulcimer
Diatonic Harmonica
African Humming Drum
Alto and Tenor Recorders
2 Kazoos (one for each nostril)

Synthesisers and other studio gear
EMS VCS 3 (the 'Putney')
Theremin (home made)
Moog Micromoog
Ensoniq ASR 10
Ensoniq EPS
Ensoniq ESQ 1
Korg Triton Le
Rhodes 73 Mark II Stage Piano
Roland Juno 60
Roland Alpha Juno 2
Roland MKB 1000
Sequential Circuits Prophet VS
in the rack:
Behringer Ultrapatch Pro
Kawai MX8SR mixer
Alesis Quadraverb Plus
Alesis D4 drum module
Yamaha SPX 50D
EMS Random Voltage Generator
EMS Pitch-to-Voltage Converter

Trigger pads (home made) for the D4

In addition to the above, I used to have (and rather wish I still did):
Korg Poly 800ii
Roland Juno 6
Roland SH-3A
Simmons SDS 9 kit
(see, this is what happens when you have kids - you have to sell things to buy other things ... :()

A Kawai digital piano - a welcome change after years of an old upright, which could best be described as a 'saloon piano'. I was quite sad to see it go though after all the hours I'd spent on it!

Hi !
I have had many instruments in my life, many organs, including a Philicordia (when I was 16 yo), an Hammond organ L122 when I was 18yo, a farfisa, a Crumar organiser duo, an electronic church organ (Riha Allegro) a few years later, then many synthesizers (Korg, yamaha, ARP , Casio, RSF....).

Nowaday, I have :
- 2 pianos ( the best one is a small concert piano Yamaha and belongs 50% to my mother in law and 50% to me. This piano is in her house. She does not play music, but payed half the price because she wanted something nice to furnish her living room).
- 1 electronic piano Roland FP8. I use it as a midi master keyboard and as the Great manual when I play with Kloria MyOrgan (virtual organ).
- some old synths (Dx7, RSF) and expanders (D110, U110, Tx81z)
- 2 arrangers roland RA95 (1 comes from my father, when he died)
- a drum mchine RSF
- 1 guitar and 1 bass guitar
and two pC computers that are my main musical instruments.

seriously, a classical guitar, an octavina and 2 bandurias. :)
all are used for rondalla.

Hi C5says,

Excuse my ignorance, but what is "rondalla" ... is this a musical form indigenous to the Philippines?

C5Says
Jan-30-2008, 18:19
it's a group of string instruments that usually plays folk music but can play classical as well. from what i recall it was only introduced to the Philippines but since it was adapted flawlessly it seemed that it originated from the Philippines.

@Krummhorn
You're welcome. I was looking for others played by Mr. Espejo like The Four Seasons but I guess they were not recorded. Besides the recorded ones at YouTube were takes from cellphones, I believe. I was able to witness them (with little kids as young as 8) personally at Villa Escudero (a very fine resort that captures the ambiance of Philippine culture; also the most collection of antiques and artifacts in the whole archipelago; life-sized dioramas were built by my stepdad that includes collection of real stuffed jungle animals; they even have a skeleton of a whale and a shrunken head as small as my fist) in Tiaong, Quezon. If you come here, I highly recommend going there. I'd like to go back there but I can't afford it. :(

Let's see, I've got an old locally made acoustic upright piano (tuned A = 437 Hz), a Korg X5 (this is currently for sale), a classical guitar (in standard tuning), an electric guitar and steel-string guitar (all tuned G2, D3, A3, E4, B4, F#5), plastic soprano and alto recorders, a 3-octave melodica, and my old computer loaded with softsynths, samples, and sequencing/notation software. :grin:

Krummhorn :grin::grin:

Exactly sir, and you may play as loud as you wish for doing whirls on the 5 toms in front of me, no one will ever know. But it sounded like Steve Gadd or Dave Weckl. At one time, I even did "The Song Is You" by the Standards Trio, with brother Jack DeJohnette on the drums, and suddenly, while looking around in my living room the "audience" applauded me. Until I realised it was my turntable playing the live album :grin::grin:

Thank you for the word kazoo, my old and tired brain (Yes, I do have one) out of ordinary function, couldn´t remember - kazoo. But I still have the comb always with me in my back pocket of the trousers. You never know when the chance comes to - sit in on a set :grin::grin:

C5Says - A "candy wrapper" is for amateurs, you should know this :lol::lol::lol::lol:.

In 1972, I did an improvisation while Maria Callas was in Copenhagen to the song: The barber from Sevilla. She asked me afterwards to tour with her.

It has to be wax paper on the comb. Besides 1 octave is nothing at all, any substitute on the comb can do this, I did in the best of my days 5 - easily:grin::grin: rehearsing.

Well, that´s much better than the blasfemy you entered about the "candy wrapper".

Even combs have emotions :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:.

Cupped hands on the other hand (sorry hands) are Okay. I do feel with you about catching the breath though. To blow with cupped hands you need the lungs of an elephant, no identical comparison to you C5says as a person of huge improvised humor and wisdom.

Hmm...let me see....I got 5 mugs...all used...washed them all and used another 2, one is extra big (the one you would see at my site http://c5says.com at the right side)...so that's about 8 servings. :)

C5says, got it - so you mean: "Buy Me Coffee - I love coffee. Not only do I love the taste but it actually helps lessen my asthma attacks. It can make me sleepy or wide awake, but it gives me terrible headache if I don't drink any. I would appreciate you buying me coffee. :) Thanks!.

Should I just adress it to C5Says - the Phillipinnes? :lol::lol::lol::lol:

I told you, I don´t work anymore, so within the first hour after awakening in the early hours of the AM, I drink 1,3 litres more or less of that delicious black tasty coffee, no sugar, no milk (that´s only for chickens) every morning. Around the third cup, I am reminded that I still am adicted to coffee, and I actualy have had two cups already not realy realising achieving my every year New Years promise come true.

But then I never heard of a man, who died from drinking coffee, I have heard of men in generel in the plural tense dying from drinking :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Chickens drink coffee??? :D :D :D My mom told me that my dad (who died before I was born) actually EATS coffee if not drink it black. I do have it in double serving but for water meant for one serving only. But I found it too costly so I stay with sachets.


But then I never heard of a man, who died from drinking coffee, I have heard of men in generel in the plural tense dying from drinking :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Yeah, I haven't heard one dying for drinking coffee...but one got blind for drinking coffee! Have you heard that?

So as not to get off topic...I was able to get a virtual keyboard...the kids love it! Take a look at http://www.heavygames.com/virtualkeyboard/showgame.asp

What an awesome virtual keyboard, it has everything on it including speakers. One could meet at your loved one´s house play and sing an aria from down the rainy streets. If in Denmark, only remember the wellington boots and the nessesary unbrella. Great link C5Says. Did you buy one of these keyboards?

About the ending of my next post with the :trp::trp:. Nice to notice you caught it, great!! ;)

No, I have never heard of a man to become blind for drinking coffee. I have heard that men in generel get blind for various other things, doing it too much. I once saw a monkey wommit after smoking a pipe.

Irish whistles - A, D, C and Bflat (I don't play these properly - have drilled extra holes in the C whistle and use piper's fingering on it!)
A Bombarde - hmm that's very loud and shrill (don't play it - we don't use them here in NZ.)

Thanks to all of you who go on and on and on...you are all the lifeblood of MIMF. :) I am merely the produced oxygen :D :D :D :D :D

Where´s thou been Cat-woman lately? Missed you.

Reducing yourself to merely oxygen? Geez, dear lady. Who, if not you, would have offered a chicken-scared of ants dane a beach towel, to wipe the sweat off his skinny body, if not you, eh?

"Merely Oxygen" :rolleyes: (LOL), that was good very funny, but it should have been entered in the Jokes thread.

Back on topic.

My first comb was a plastic comb, 12 centimetres long and black with 54 teeth. But improving my talents on the comb with wax paper, I changed to an english manufactored titanium comb with 72 teeth in two layers, the one I told you all could produce more than 5 octaves.

Today in 2008, I have 18 combs in all, depending on different styles of music. For instance two fender electric fretless combs, one in plastic, white with 56 teeth and one which used to belong to the late Yul Brunner (american movie actor) with no teeth at all. That one realy need very good lunges to even produce a sound. Actually Telly Savales bought it on an auktion, and I found it at Southerby´s not 15 months ago.

My two favourite combs today, though retired from the international musical scene of combs, are the english manufactored custum built fretless fender 102 teeth syntheziser comb made of titanium with vibrator.

The other favourite comb of mine is the synclavier double bowed comb with 116 teeth with 6 pedals made in coal fiber. It can be turned into electric with an additional device.

Now for the wax paper. Most of my life, I used the English Deluxe Origin Madchester Wax Paper, because it´s very thin, but strong. However the best tone using Wax Paper is the Indian Buddha Tibetian Tea Wax Paper. But mind you, it has to have been in use, or the sound will not be good.

A fiveteen years old Marigaux oboe. Even though it's so old it plays fabolous cause it's after a thorough make-over. Too bad it's rented, not mine...

Hi Jonesey,

How do you like your Young Chang piano? I bought my Studio upright in 1984 (new) and absolutely love its tone and the case work.

Hi Krummhorn,

I find the tone can be a bit harsh sometimes - but then again I love the tone of a Yamaha Piano, and when I make my millions, I'll have a Yamaha grand in a room all to myself.

just gotta wait to make those millions though :p

Don't get me wrong, the Young Chang is a great piano, and when I nearly had to sell it to create some room, I had a buyer ready and just couldn't go through with it at the last minute.

I've had the Piano for over 15 years and never had a problem with it.
