I have a production services company and I have a bunch of gear that Ive acquired over the past decade and a half or so some of it is gear I dont use anymore, some of it are deals that were too good to pass up, and there is some stuff that I bought for future projects that at this point, dont have a future. None of these items are NEW. Some of them might look MINT in the pictures but I dont want to be on the hook for it so please be aware that some items may have scratches, dings, smudges, stripped or missing screws, scratchy pots and other misc.
Some of the items have seen little use and are in great shape but a lot of it is stuff that would ideally be bought by someone who would take the time to giving it a good servicing. Hopefully, I have priced it accordingly. If youve come this far, I would assume you know what you are looking at.
If theres something about this unit you can educate me on, let me know. Thanks for looking and I appreciate your patience if youve read through this completely. I have about a dozen audio consoles I will be listing this week.These consoles came from installs that went away, wholesale lots that I bought out, things I bought for a future project that went nowhere and our own inventory that we are retiring from service. I should have done this a few years ago, this stuff has been sitting in storage for quite a while. Earlier this year, I brought in a couple guys who spent several days going through all of these.
We ran a combination of CD Signal and a 58 through each channel verifying channel functions and routed signal through all the console's Aux Sends, Sub Groups, Matrices and Master Section functions. They exercised static from controls when it came up, De-Oxit'd buttons and switches when needed and cleaned up dirty faders when they came across them. Scratchy Pots, Static from Buttons and Switches, dead channels, ribbon cable issues.... Having stated all of this, the majority of these consoles were working pretty well.
But that's not to say that these common problems might not come up again. These consoles have been cleaned up. They look pretty good in the photos but that's not to say they don't show their age.They may have scratches and scuffs that can't be seen in the photos. Knobs and Faders Caps could be damaged or cracked and screws may be missing from the chassis. Again this is all par for the course with consoles of this age. This came from a corporate setting.
It's in a case but it lived most of it's life in the tray with no lid. The top of the console shows plenty of wear. It has some bent faders, at least one pot that is broke-off at the stem and a few plastic knob caps that are stripped.
Just before this was retired, it had the ribbon cables worked on. All the connections were repaired, tightened up or permanently soldered.
The guys went over this pretty thoroughly and the biggest issue was that when they first fired it up after a decade of sitting in storage, it took at least 30mins for all of it's functions to warm up. It took less time every day after that while they were working on it. I'm writing that off to the extended down time but I wanted to include that in the listing. We have a three of these so we are well versed in the analog functions of these consoles.
As far as we can tell this one is working pretty well despite the condition of the top of the console. We do NOT use the automation in these and did not test any of it's memory or recall functions so I cannot say if those functions are working properly.
