Its an incredible piece of vintage Neve, wired with all its ridiculous complexities and brilliance. On closer inspection, this has had a few parts replaced over the many years since it was made, and the sound is incredible. The closest thing Ive ever heard to an original 1073, and in fact shares a lot of the similar internal features of the classic units. If you search for these units online, most of the older mic pres vary from unit to unit, with various 1063/4, versions often swapping some of the technical specs per model. Its been racked up from the previous owner with mic/line out and tails to attach your sources too - nothing too fancy.
Theres also an original faceplate exactly the same colour as the face of the 1063, joined to the rack - likely from an original console. This is a 2U plate, 1/2 U wide. Its a switchable channel strip from line & mic on the back, single channel through an original 10468 input transformer (same as 1073) and 2 of the same EQ cards in the 1073 as well. And the output is the same as the 1073 too with an LO1166. Fitted with Elma switches, the big clunky red thing, for up to +80db fitted with multiple gain stages, see pics of internals.Can send more pics if required too. If youre interested in trades, Im only really looking at other vintage gear (Neve/APi/Pultec) at the minute or possible 500 series combinations. Cash is best for me, but feel free to message!
Or youre more than welcome to collect from my studio at Lapwing, in Walsden OL14 - to try out or see for yourself, or equally Im an hour from Manchester & Leeds and regularly touring - so can possibly deliver UK wide if the time is suitable!
