Amek Big
« on: April 10, 2006, 01:50:56 pm »

ok guys, i've spent a while really thinking about this.  i've decided this is the place to break the news first.

i'll be selling my Amek Big.

all the mods i've done to it have made it sound really good, but i think it's time for some one that does more work on an analog tape machine to have this thing.

if any of you are interested in owning this desk, let me know.

28 mono channels
4 stereo subgroups
1 stereo buss.

the stereo buss was heavily modded by Pro Audio Design, and all the VCAs on every channel in the whole console were swaped out for much better sounding ones.

the console was re-caped with Hi-Temp panasonic electrolytics right before i bought it.

i have added a laptop computer to run the automation (the console feature total recall) and i have a back up laptop incase one died.

all manuals and documentation come with it.

my dad and i built a custom stand for it that might not be the prettiest thing you've seen, but it works really well.

this will have to be picked up locally, or crated.

it's fully functional as i've kept good care of it.  it's been used every day for 2 years without failing me once.

Someone please buy J.'s board so he can slip into the dark world of mouse mahem and we can witness it publically.

J. you will miss that thing.

Someone's gonna get a deal and you're gonna miss having real faders, eq and not having to heat your mix room.
