Can you identify this Neve Module?

I am trying to figure out what kind of Neve modules are loaded into this console. I have never seen a these EQ and phase switches before.

Wild guess; It's not Neve but an early SHEP replica?

Don't most Neve modules have the logo and a part number on them? These look more 'british' than necessarily 'Neve'. Maybe Calrec or someone following a BBC spec. Possibly even fitted into a Neve frame somewhere along the line to fill a carcass...

Purely conjecturing, as seen on GS.

Hi

Sorry, I have been busy all day fixing stuff in my RV and my iPhone couldn't open the picture when later I checked... so I am on my laptop now and can see them better.

Well, cross Neve off. Neve would not make an abomination like those...

I'm tempted to say cross Shep off as they don't bear his logo at the bottom...

My guess is Steve Butterworth of PAST who was hawking 31105's around as 1U racks about 15 years ago and could have put them in regular cases also.

I hate the switches...

So that's my 2c



PS For help identifying original Neve modules.... Neve NEVER put toggle or any other switch directly on the front panel. They were always mounted on the interpanel with a slot in the front panel for the lever.

PPS Except for the 54 series, that is....

These modules are cheap fakes

The meters on the console above the eq has the Shep
& Neve logos so i would think it would be a Shep console / EQ

Hi

Exactly right.... Nothing like the Shep Logo nor did he have custom meters silk screened nor would a Shep console have PAST modules.

heh

Hi

Steve bought a ton of obsolete Neve parts back when so the module will sound like the 31105 it's a knock-off of.... can't speak for the rest of the console as there's no picture to show what it is.

I have not actually had a chance to use it. I am trying to help some one else sort it out.

Hi

Hard to see on my iPhone but the big difference is that, being pre 1975, the modules are old style RAF Blue Grey with Marconi knobs (?) with aluminum lower dual concentrics.

The modules bear minimum resemblance to the new appearance design 31105 clone at the top of this thread.

Also, I can't make out the switches that supposedly resemble the 31105 clone
