Neve PMS 12-2

How about this little baby? This has to be one of the sweetest 12 channel mixers ever made





This is on ebay now, buts its not one of those bargain deals I sometimes post about. The seller has a BIN of £17,985. Heres what they say about it:

"Studiocare supplies Professional Audio Recording, Broadcast Sound and Pro Music studio equipment.

NEVE PMS122 Analogue Mixing Console USED
Collection is recommended. Please contact us for shipping options.


This vintage Neve PMS122 is from the early 1970s. It is in excellent condition and works fine. 


It has been recently refurbished by Blake Devitt. 


Only a small number of these desks were produced and you are unlikely to find one in as good condition.


Due to the age of the desk there are a few inperfections as would be expected: There is the occasional quiet audible click when changing some settings. Physically, there are a few dents and scratches. Some of the lettering has worn off somewhat and the wooden panels are also worn. Also a couple of the XLR connecters are a little stiff.   


All of the faders, gain pots and EQ are quiet and the desk sounds fantastic.
