well thats nice, except ramport had a neve 8088.......which ended up at bearsville, and im not sure where its gone now.....ask mark mckenna....
and I know for a fact that keith grant doesnt have a whole console, and the parts he does have arent from a helios per se, but from a custom desk that Swettenham built before Helios existed....(he was one of the techs at Olympic before he built Helios #1 )
I,m sure we have spoken a lot in the past, we have mutual friends in Don & Tony Larking and most likely Peter Duncan, you were interested in some ex-broadcast gear I had. Anyway
I do not think that Ramport had a Neve, Virgin the new owners, installed a Neve after Ramport had been renamed "Townhouse 3".
I still do business with Pete so I could ask him, in the meantime I will send him this picture I have put together.
Legend has it, that the ash from Petes Fag, was the secret of the "Who's" sound, like we would add a dash of salt to our Fish 'n Chips.
