What sort of keyboard does Chris play during the Everglow solo part?
Chris uses a Kawai K300 upright piano !!!
No - I mean the smaller keyboard he uses just to play Everglow
I actually have no idea, sorry. Maybe in some live videos it is possible to see a glimpse of the piano brand of his piano which he is using during the song.
The smaller piano its a reduced MP9000 with a custom case
Just as I thought. So Jonny has this same keyboard too, and then the B/C stage keyboard Chris plays just looks different because it's on a custom stand..I wonder how it went 'out of tune' at Glasto then haha..
I don't think that Chris uses a KAWAI MP9000 on the b-stage. The keys somehow look bigger (height) than the ones at my MP9000. But I would also really like to know the answer.
However, the shape of the case really looks like the MP9000. But if that is the case, which sound is being used for that keyboard? It doesn't sound like the original MP9000 but also slightly different than the ATX-300
Probably some water damage, or some short circuit...or a MIDI problem...
The case of the piano, is a wooden case with the reduced MP9000 inside
They are probably using samples from a piano used in the recording of the AHFOD
It's a sample of the Yamaha DYUS1E3 that was used during the GS Tour and early AHFOD before they switched to the Kawai.
They totally removed the mp9000 samples from their perfomances and recordings
That's why I thought it was set up. So Chris could do the song alone (in lower notes) while the others (including Jonny) can take a break or so..... If it wasn't their intention to let Chris sing the complete song in lower notes they would've given him another piano (like Jonny's) for sure !
