You can own a recording console used by the Beatles at Abbey Road Studios
Like to own a piece of music history? A REDD 37 recording console from Abbey Road Studios used in Abbey Road's famed Studio One and on recordings by the Beatles is being sold by Vintage King Audio.
Vintage King says the console was built in December, 1958 and that during its time in Abbey Road's Studio One, it was used for various Beatles albums up to, and including “Let It Be,” and also for recordings of Oasis, Shirley Bassey and Lenny Kravitz. It has been owned by Kravitz since the 1990s.
The recording console is being sold with two other pieces of Abbey Road equipment, a Studer J37 tape machine from Abbey Road's Studio 7 and a two-track Studer C37 tape recorder.
