Instruments

Electric guitars
1961 Fender Stratocaster, fiesta red Mike once said in an interview (The Raft) that this was his favourite guitar and that he'd never sell it. However, he finally decided to part company with it in December 2007 and sold it through Chandler guitars, fetching £30,000.

Pianos
Steinway Model C Grand piano. The notes for Tubular Bells 2003 list an 8 foot Steinway grand. The model C is 7'5" 1/2", the Model D is 8'11 3/4" - it could be either of those! The frame was from the 1920s, but the piano was rebuilt. Listed as a 1928 Steinway
Synthesisers
Roland XP-50 Digital synthesiser workstation. This is a guess - he lists a Roland under 'keyboards' and this is a Roland keyboard which he owned at that time.
Yamaha Tyros 1 Sold via Chandler Guitars in September 2008.

[?] This is, at a guess, the Yamaha referred to in the sleeve notes of the album.
Loudspeakers
Dynaudio AIR 20 Three way active monitor with DSP.
Mixing desks
Yamaha 01V96 Mike said that he gave this to his 3-year-old son Jake to play with (!!). sold via Chandler Guitars in September 2008.
