For the curious (and nerdy!) among you, here is a quick guide to the keyboards currently used (in various combinations) in my live and studio performances. In addition, I'm currently developing a laptop-based rig using Apple's MainStage and various software instruments.

CP4

Yamaha CP4 stage piano

This is my 'go to' 88-note keyboard. It features samples of three different Yamaha grand pianos and excellent Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Clavinet sounds.

SK1

Hammond SK1 organ

The sound of the classic Hammond B3 organ in a package you can backpack! I pair it with a Neo Instruments Ventilator for that authentic Leslie rotary speaker vibe.

PC361

Kurzweil PC361 synthesizer

When I need a full range of function band sounds, or high quality orchestral sounds for pit work, this is the instrument I put in the car.

Sub37

Moog Sub 37 synthesizer

Nothing compares to the authentic soaring leads or massive, funky bass sounds of a Moog. It's a bit of an indulgence for regular jobs but I love playing it!

PX5S

Casio PX-5S stage piano

Yes, Casio! This is an instrument which has won the hearts of many professional users – it's incredibly light and a superb all-round controller.

SK2

Hammond SK2 organ

The big brother of the SK1. Dual manuals, and I also have the Hammond XPK-200L pedals – perfect for those specialist organ gigs.
