I think it was in Euros around 20 K but I think it depends on the consoles condition.

actually it depends also on the number of channels you're after; a 64 or 70 channel will cost more than a 40 channel.

lastly, imho, if you get offered an SSL (whatever nr of channels) for 20k think twice, there's must be something hidden...

for example, a 4040 SSL recapped, in full working condition is more around 30k Euro - 45k USD

I've seen a couple used desks being sold without a computer which obviously subtracts a lot. In addition, some older desks don't have recall (TR) which also is a subtraction. A G+ (not just a G) with mostly "E EQ" channels and ultimation can double the price over a similar G with VCA auto. That's what the rock guys are looking for now.

48 channels and above are in more demand than the 40s, and you'll notice the price difference. Actually, 48 is probably the most in-demand since people are looking for more affordable desks to fit into smaller control rooms or personal studios. You actually don't save all that much compared to getting a 56, but it really depends on what happens to be available at the time you are looking.

A small, older E needing some TLC or re-capping can be found for a reasonable price, but to get something like a 64 input G+ will still cost you some real money.

Last I checked avg seemed like it was around 50-60K US. Seen them from 40K-75K+ for the more common sizes depending on condition/options.

good shape, recapped within a reasonable period of time... $20K to $35K USD. Neve, Amek, SSL, all the old analog consoles are averaging in the $20K to $30 K USD window here on the east coast.

cheers

I love a revival .

You'd think a mod here would be a little more informed.

Oh well ...

I am.. I just purchased a nice fully operational and great shape 70 channel SSL 4000 for a client $25K...

A few years ago I purchased a 96 channel Neve Capricorn with massive IO fully operational for $30K. bought a second one for parts for $15K

Over the past 4 years I've priced out a few analog/digital used older monster desks all fell within the price range...



buying one is cheap.... disassembling one, shipping, reinstalling and the monthly maintenance is not.


have a nice day.


cheers

Prices have been drifting upwards in the last years (parts & maintainance get no cheaper, and forums like this one + hearsay & myth all help), but 20K/max40K Eur seems to be the pricerange from what I see.

Hey, what's wrong with a revival if the thread is still relevant?

I think an SSL desk continues to be a secret wet dream for many of us who read recording mags in the 80's & 90's.

Btw, your studio looks amazing!
