One Hammond C3. It's a B3 in a different cab. This one gigged and toured with a long list of big names before I rescued it from the road. Also, a Hammond Xk-1c portable keyboard that works for smaller gigs and can be carried in the front seat to rehearsals. Three mobile Leslies. Or is it four? A Neo Vent. A bunch of amps. And a bunch of PA and other stuff, including a piano keyboard for the piano kind of stuff.
