    it depends on the city you re playing... sometimes public transportation is the only way to go

    A B3 and Leslie is really furniture moving more than it is carrying something. When I saw the thread, I was thinking about things that could be carried by one person, albeit awkwardly.

    In that spirit, I nominate the good ol' Yamaha CP70 "portable" piano. If you don't remember these things, they were actually pretty cool. An actual, stringed 70-key grand piano that breaks down into two parts (harp and keys/mechanism), with detachable legs and road case hinges and latches on the side.

    It sounded like a real piano because it was a real piano. It also needed to be tuned about every twelve seconds! But, the pieces could be carried by one (strong) person, if he were in a hurry. Maybe not for long, but one person could do it (I know, because there were nights I had no choice and had to do it myself).

    I guess the advent of high-quality electronic keyboards obviated the need for a real piano and the CP70 fell by the wayside as a result. But, it was an icon of its time (the early to mid-80's) and Billy Joel still uses one as part of his stage show.

    Remember this?...

    I have an eighty pound AC30CC. I'm an old man. Do the math.

    Carrying two big old six guns in holsters when you're only two feet tall.

    Infant carrier with a 30lb 8 month old. Much more awkward than a 45-50lbs side-carry weight should be.

    Yep. Glad mine isn't that big. I guy I work with has a baby that big and he had to go out and buy another infant car seat because his baby, at 33lbs, out grew the one they had, but the baby wasn't strong enough to hold her head up to move into the next type of car seat.

    I don't think the prince would be so spry with a 33lb baby in that carrier.

    I've seen people carry things like this in Zimbabwe. Across a bridge. In the wind. I just don't understand how it's possible!

    Problem is, a person strong enough to carry a CP70 would have hands too big to fit in those tiny torture handles.

    30 pounds at 8 months? Heck, I weighed 50 pounds at age 6! (years)

    50 lbs is quite heavy for a domestic cat, if your picture on your avatar is genuine

    The bigger harp is quite a handful.

    I'm a serious pedal junkie, but I only keep around 8 on my board at any one time.

    I'm probably strong enough and young, but that sounds downright painful.

    I never said it way fun. I just said there were nights that I had no choice!

    My girlfriend while walking along the beach.

    Until the LSD wears off and I realise I'm just dragging a stolen mannequin around a car park.
