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 ...
