Private concert on the Hammond X661189 viewsThis was the X66 I played most often. As well as two Series 12 speakers, it had a big Leslie 910. The owner also had a Concorde with leslies and a Bechstein concert grand.

My own pic of the T50 console1070 viewsNot too sharp, sorry, but this view shows the sheer size of the beast and more of the speakers. Note two knee levers - one for each knee. Sustain was on the right and I think rhythm start/stop on the left. I remember that it was in the way and I folded it up and never used it!

Hector Olivera's party piece1065 viewsWe've talked about Hector playing 'Flight of the Bumblebee' on the pedals, so here's a photo of him doing it. This was at a private 'concert' at the 'Organ Loft' week-long organ expo in October 1979, held at the Novotel, Bradford, Yorkshire, UK.
This was about 2am, after a 'heavy' night for most of us. Don't know how he did it. He went on to play the Widor Toccata, and when some drunken fool (not me!) said "OK, Clever clogs, play it in G", he said "OK!" and just did it!

The Kawai T6 theatre organ895 viewsThe only T6 ever built. A mix of theatre tabs, drawbars, and synths. I love the VU meter at the right and the clock (!) at the left. This was in the Kawai factory in Saitama, Japan in 1979.
