December Used List

It’s that time again, woken up by sleighbells, fat men stuck in chimneys, reindeer knocking slates off the roof, so welcome to our last used list of the year.

We’ll close on Christmas Eve (December 24th) and crawl back to work on January 5th although emails and answerphone will be monitored throughout the break. So…this is your last chance to buy Grannie that Neumann mic she’s always wanted to put beside the flying ducks on the mantelpiece or pick up a Protools Rig to keep Junior amused over the Christmas break.

As usual, we’ll be making a donation to Shelter, the UK charity for the homeless, rather than sending out Christmas cards but we thank all our customers, friends and suppliers for their support during yet another busy year and wish you all well for 2015.

We have new two inch and half inch tape in stock.

SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION ‘SOLID’ 500 series early SSL style compressor.

We have a limited number of these fantastic stereo bus compressors using the original DBX Gold VCAs for the ultimate SSL style mono/stereo compression. Absolutely superb.

Limited edition Module £1100 ex VAT each
