Neve 55 Console Consoles

Neve 55 Console

I just was given a Neve 55 BTC console. Half of the 32 channels work well and the other half don't pass audio. I'm looking to see if anyone has extra channels floating around that they would be willing to part with, know of anyone that could work on them, or have channel schematics. The model numbers for channels are 55001 thru 55005 I believe. I'm located outside of Rochester, NY. Thanks a bunch!

Why don't you just cut it down to 16ch and sell the remaining strips?

Or, I'd bet most of them will work with a little TLC. Might be worth it to have a tech look them over.

Anyone with channel schematics? AMS Neve isn't getting back to me. Surprise.

Are the channels that are dead grouped together, say channels 1-16 or channels 17-32? Or are they dead sporadically throughout the board?

They are spread out randomly. I spoke to Dave Rochester and Ike Zimbel and they recommend a recap at the least but they are needing schematics. I'm going to have one of them come out to work on board in Ocotber/November

Do you still have the Neve 55 console?

Just as an update, Dave Rochester worked on the console and it's now 100% functioning. These consoles are super reliable once all the bugs have been worked out of them.

Hi

About 15 years ago plus/minus a year or two, A & M recorders on Le Brea Avenue in Hollywood, dumped a Neve BCM10 console in the trash dumpster outside. It was minus 1073's and 1272's but had full compliment of routing units, faders and monitor section.

An enterprising fellow (not me) rescued it, stuffed it in his car, and after finding an assortment of modules for it, sold it for quite a large sum of money.

Seems it pays to check dumpsters!

Anyone need channels or repair of 55 channels?

I have a couple channels that have been recapped and ICs replaced. I also can bring dead channels back to life.

Send a PM!

Thanx,
