I love Dean's crazy keyboard sounds in The Dead Weather. I read on Wikipedia that he uses a Moog Little Phatty, a Wurlitzer Electric Piano, and a vintage KORG CX-3 organ.

I play keys and want to get one of these keyboards. Does anyone here know more about how he gets his sound?

Which one of these keyboards would be the best purchase?

The keys on Bone House sound awesome.


Thanks, Chad

dean was so grossly over looked in the dead weather. the dude was doing some sick stuff on keys, and was a total monster on guitar. i'd like to see him more involved in future TMR recordings and projects.

Yeah Dean's great.

Does anyone know why he doesn't want to reveal his equipment at the end of this video? I'm guessing he doesn't want people to copy his sound, but that sounds kinda elitist.

This is a bit off topic but I have this funny story about Dean at a qotsa show in LA at Club Nokia. Queens had been playing for a good hour and it was unbearably hot in this fucking place so I'm yelling at dean "Dean!".. "Dean!" and I finally got his attention and made the drinking water motion with my hand to see if he would be so kind as to give me one of the at least 10 bottles he had directly next to him. Keep in mind, I was literally on the verge of dehydrating, like seriously, I thought I was gonna pass out! Anyway he looks at me as I'm signaling him for water and he thinks I'm making the "shaka" sign with my hand so he does it back. Wtf! I met him in Pomona a few months later and we cracked up about it.

thats just like that scene from Fifth Element when Corbin Dallas is trying to get the gun from the Deaf Rock Star and the Rock Star reciprocates by tossing him a couple of billiard balls as if he could defend himself with those... classic gutbuster humor
