This is arguably the most iconic SSL mixing console in the world available for sale to the general public: The legendary 4000E 56 channel desk with Amek sidecar owned by legendary Grammy winning, multi-platinum, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers "Genesis" from new and used on all of their albums and solo records of band members Phil Collins, Mike and The Mechanics, and Tony Banks! The credits to this SSL desk are incredible with well over 100 million records sold. Beatles member George Harrison, Eric Clapton, The Cure, Chaka Kahn, and even Lady Gaga on her last album "Jolene" all have credits to this desk at Genesis' famous recording studio The Farm Studio in Surrey, England. Not only is this the ultimate bragging rights of any producer, studio or label owner, but it is an exceptional SSL that stands worlds apart from its peers. It has been meticulously serviced and maintained. It has redundant power supplies and computers, to include upgraded G+ computer. It has half black, half brown EQ's with two channels of Maselec mastering EQ's. It has full redundant cabling and wiring to go to two rooms and an Amek summing mixer sidecar that handles the custom point-to-point handwired mix monitors used by all of the band members and artists. This is a ready to go recording studio with incredible provenance for only £3,000 a channel.
The desk has been fully decommissioned and is ready for immediate transport to anywhere in the world. For overseas buyers, we are more than happy to assist with getting the console to the required port or airport here in the UK. Our engineer James Curtis-Thomas is a SSL expert who can assist with any technical setup questions you have once you are ready to install the desk in your facility.
