I posted in this thread years ago, but the links are dead, so what the hell, here's another picture of my keyboard rig.

Better picture of the Prophet.  Pure 80's analog goodness:

Which is the one with the fully functional contrast knob?

The Yamaha, the 88-key P.O.S. with the glowing blue display.  From the angle in the picture, you can't read it, but if you're in front of it, it tells you what patch you're on and your main settings.  Now imagine that somehow the contrast got turned all the way up.  You'd think that higher contrast would make it much clearer, but for whatever reason, "contrast" is just another brightness setting, and everything was all bluish-white and washed out.

My problem was that I didn't even remember that there was a contrast knob, so it never occurred to me to check the contrast setting.  I just figured the display was fried.

Loving the Prophet, Orbert! I saw the picture in the picture thread, and I thought it had a sorta Dave Smith vibe, but I couldn't place it. So it's the original Prophet, nice!

Nihil-Morari is generally considered the resident Zappa person.

Definitely a Dave Smith vibe, as he of course is the original designer.  I love the new Prophets by DSI.  I want one.

My main bass right now. It's an Ibanez GSR206. I got this for my birthday last year and the extended range has really inspired my writing. The scrunchy around the neck is to help dampen the strings for when I want to do some two handed tapping up on the higher end of the fretboard.



Old faithful. This is a Fender Jazz Bass (obviously) and is my pride and joy. I got it for my junior high school graduation 10 years ago (wow time flies) and it immediately became my most prized possession. This was my main bass for years until my writing and playing style changed and became geared more towards 5 and 6 strings. Still, this was the most recent bass that I gigged with back when I was in a jazz band, and is probably the best sounding instrument that I have. I keep it in Drop D tuning now since my 6 string has E standard tuning covered and for other standard tunings like C or D, I can just pop my capo onto the 6 string's neck.



This is a Kramer Striker 5 string and was the first extended range bass that I got, buying it off of a friend. It's wiring is a little messed up and the nut is slightly out of place, but these are all easily fixable things. I keep it tuned down a half step to Eb standard so that I can have the low Bb (perfect for when I want to cover The Root of All Evil) and with these three instruments in different tunings and my capo, I have all that I will ever need for gigging, with all tunings that I write in covered.

So after a long wait, my new baby is coming on Monday. I've been missing my Floyd since the wood split under the bridge on my Jem.



She's a beauty for the price. May need to upgrade the pickups at some point as I'm sure I'll miss the Evos.

It's an Ibanez RG370. She's a looker alright.

I was looking for a super strat in blue, like Jake E Lee's Charvel from back in the 80s. Always wanted a blue guitar. When I saw this I fell for it..😍
