Anyone have any ideas what these two synths might be?

Looks like a Korg Poly Ensemble PE-1000 on the bottom.

??

It's definitely not the P, as it has wood panelling... What is the one on top? That is the real question...

Devetron is right, that's definitely a PE-1000. It came in two different stylings (either with a wooden top or Tolex). Also, the case of the PE-2000 is much deeper.

Here's a photo of the wooden style version:

There are more images on flickr including full-size images. Here's a crop of the best image of that mystery synth.

Close-up of that cream colored synth

Maybe that'll help some sharp eyes identify it. I'm guessing it's a metal case, not plastic, judging from the screws.

You can almost make out the "KORG Poly-Ensemble" on the label on the back of the Korg in this pic.

Creme one kinda reminds me of those vintage organs, ie Farfisa, Bontempi etc. I highly doubt it's a synth, I don't think I've seen anything like it before in regards to synthesisers.

:wink:

If you look closely at the cables, the output he's using apears to be one of a pair of RCA phono plugs, which would narrow it down somewhat. I was wondering if that black patch on the end was a hollow in which some kind of disk drive resides... or not.

So he seems to be triggering the drum tracks via the cream box on top of the Korg could it possibly be a custom case for a tr 909? Thats the drum machine Ive seem him/Radiohead use in the past at live gigs.

anyways thanks for all the detective work I knew you guys would be able to get to the bottom of this.

Cream one seems to be a Baldwin "something"... You can see in the set-list where Thom wrote Baldwin next to it, and he also asks for the volume to be raised during arpeggi...

Problem is, what Baldwin is it... Very few info online... I grew up with a big one, two keyboards in my house, with pedals and everything, but I can't remember the name or model number and once tried to find info online and didn't have much luck...

It does sound awesome in the videos though...

And yes, thanks for the info about the Korg P with the picture to show... Always learning, you know...

This looks like it. I can't read the name. Discoverer? Looks like a Bontempi clone...
