Trident 80C

Theres a beautiful looking console on ebay today. Its in California

Stephens Console

Here is a great Stephens Electronics 2416 console from the early 70s. Its on ebay for a rather hopeful $50,000

Strawberry Studios

I just found this youtube by accident, and it happens to contain footage of this console. It's from Strawberry Studios in Stockport, which was mostly known for 10cc recordings, but also saw the likes of The Smiths and Joy Division. In the wiki page it mentions "a real purpose-built control desk"....

Stunning desk

Neumann 80s Console

Again, this was on the bay for ages. Tempting though at around 10k

Neumann Small Console

This was knocking about on ebay for ages. Although it is an amazing little desk, with incredible preamps and everything, it was probably a bit overpriced at 10k

These rock. Another ebay beauty that got away [actually I seem to remember it was a scammy one]

Another Electrodyne

Electrodyne Quad 8

Quad 8 consoles get a lot of respect for their sound. And I particularly like these upright wooden console designs


Davoli were an Italian company. Thats all I know about this beast!

Custom Dymaxion Console

Don't know what this is, but it has nice lights on it.

UPDATE via Wolfgang Willms: It is a Dymaxion Console, here is the link for your information


Another lovely little Calrec, again sold on the bay within the last year

Calrec MOD

This console was commissioned by the UK Ministry of Defense in the 70s. It was on ebay about 2 years ago and I was bidding on it. I got sniped! It went for around £5k, to canada I believe

API Clearwater

An early 70's console that belonged to Creedence Clearwater. I believe it was sold by an american dealer quite recently

Random Console Pictures

Over the past few years I have saved onto my desktop pictures of consoles that I thought looked cool. The next 40 or so posts are they, and I will put any information about them I can remember, but as they are pretty random some of the consoles are marked 'unknown'. Any info would be much appreciated
