I was just watching a Van der Graaf Generator video from 1970 and was wondering if anyone knew what kind of keyboard Hugh Banton was playing. It appeared to be a synth of some sort but it was being used primarily for organ. However, it doesn't look like any organ I've seen.
I appreciate any help.

Are you referring to a Video here on PA (Belgium 1971)?

Sorry for not being too helpful..I don't have a cluePinch...but it IS an organ, not a synthesizer, that's for sure...

no, i think that article was a little too late. the video i saw was from 1970 with nic potter still in the band.
it is the one on this site of them playing darkness, and also one from the same show of whatever would robert have said?
