Yes, that is a Cat 43 siting on top of it's 361. It is sitting on the side edge of the console itself actually.  If you look to the right you will see the backside of a wooden rack with XLR's...that was full of old 550A's.

And what reverb do you see in the lower right corner..?

Ah right, that is the console.

That reverb is an Elektromesstechnik 250.

As we use to call them back in the day... that's an "R2D2" in the lower right hand corner!  An EMT 250... there is one for sale on evilbay right now (only 6K!)

What's the custom tube console thingy above R2D2?

I have absolutely no idea what that tube thang was but I am sure it was not anything cool like a Lang or Pultec though.

I really wish you had put both your hands to the right to save me from the sex god standing next to you.  Who is that sexy, sexy man?

You, however, may have an infringement suit to file against Weird Al.  

I would have never guessed that was you!

Great pic.

That was Ed Lever from Canyon Recorders.  Yep, I was thinner and my hair wasn't grey yet.

Ed Lever... I can see probably half of his 2000 body parts.

Coincidentally, The Jazz Singer is on Showtime right now.  The Q8s sound really good!  LOL.

I think Crystal was used for at least part of it.

I knew it!  I saw those joysticks on the console and wondered if it were Crystal.
