How tall are you in real life??

You look like you are 4 feet tall with that thing + the height of your mic stand

Incredibly cool instrument!

Looks amazing, though perhaps it's cause of the Youtube sound quality, but I can't see anything here tonally that you couldn't get out of a much easier to carry instrument. But if it's part of your heritage or a big visual part of your gig, more power to ya.

Still easier than a B3 and two Leslies.

Thanks for the info.

Yes, but unfortunately it looked like this... so the baggage handlers refused to load it onto the aircraft.
