    Default SCORE OF THE CENTURY!

    Okay! Maybe not the place to put this but....I had to tell you guys about my latest aquisition. I just scored a very vintage (1972) recording console. Pics will come later today. It is a real beauty. Fired it up at the guys studio and fell in love instanly. As soon as I brought it home I gutted it and cleaned all the pots to get the 30 some years of scratchiness out of 'em, and did about half of the faders. I could'nt wait to hook this baby up and man. I got goose bumps. One of the warmest boards Iv'e heard. I knew by the pics in the ad that there was something special about it. It is all hand wired, stamped and braked. Extremely responsive eq. It brought some of my old synths lines a new life. Guitar mic'd sounds fantastic. And most importantly, not one damn computer chip! It's old, a relic of the past, but sweet like wine!
    Very similar in style to the old boards at Sunset Sound. A little narrower to accomodate the specific room it was designed for which also works great for my studio. All that's needed is a VU hearth which I will put to gether in time (all there right now is the L&R master VU's) Anyway guys. Talk to y'all later. Have a great afternoon.
    And don't forget to rock out with yer cock out!
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    Alright. Hopefully the pics work. This is my first time posting pics and to make matters worse, I've got a new cam so work with me. Here are a few pics of the new console. Still cleaning it up, and restoring the base. (kinda rusty from the paint chips)[IMG][/IMG]

    I'll post some pics of the guts tomorrow. I need to finish off cleaning and relubing the faders over the next couple of days. I'll start the four expansion modules tomorow. These hold banks of 6 channels each. You guys are probably thinking this is old junk but it's got such a funky charm to it, and the sound is so warm and tight. (kinda like....no no can't go there!)
    As soon as i get a few things worked out i'll post a track I recorded last night with her.

    Sorry guys! I should have posted it as "my score of the century". I can see I got alot of your guys hopes up! I'm such a douche! I got my new board for a couple hundred bucks. I've seen 'em go for well over a thousand and not in near as good shape. Next time I wanna freak you guys out I'll header something like JUST DUG UP ED'S MARSHALL OUT OF HIS GARBAGE!!!! or I JUST REAR ENDED ED'S LAMBORGHINI!!!!
    I didn't!......I'm just sayin' Is all.: Anyway...Ill have to repost the first pic. I did'nt realize it was the shaky one.

    Finally got the camera figured out. Here is a better side pic of the board. Sorry if anyone got seasick on the last ones!



    Just recieved the last of the expansion modules. Two four channel units. Need to be cleaned up then added to the main to achieve 24 channels total. More than enough for a home studio.
