Look up Helsing on this board. He racked and sold up a bunch of Sphere EQ's a while back and they looked very very nice. He is the fellow that helped Peter at A-Designs design their new pres.

There is also David Marquette from Marquette Audio Labs. He has racked vintage German gear like Telefunken, Neumann and Siemens as well as Neve, Calrec, and Audix for years. I have some of his stuff and it is quite nice. He is also the man behind Mercury recording gear. I'm sure he can rack those EQ's for you as well.

There is also Brian Roth that frequents the board here and now moderates the TapeOp DIY forum.

THE SSL guy!

I can highly recommend Bruce and his crew at The Desk Doctor.

VERY trust-worthy and knows everything about every SSL desk. On the side, he'll usually take on pretty much any custom project and either he or one of his guys will do it. In fact, he had plans for racking the 502's and 510's, already has CAD drawings, etc.

Give 'em a call and tell them I sent you his way, he'll be good to ya. (He's building a custom desk for me now)

Good guys. Really. (And this is coming from the guy who has already delt extensively with "that guy" over-seas. Not good)

Yes, Bruce would do a good job... But, I suggest you get a quote on that racking job before buying those 12 x EQ's... The rack job is going to be BIG BUCKS! And, if they don't have balanced cards (I can't remember the model #)... you're in for big problems. Do a search on 5000 modules.

Allright, no offence intended, but I just couldn't resist a cheap shot.

More seriously, apart from the excellent suggestions already given, why not give SSL a call in NY or LA? They might have some suggestions too. And they won't try to sell you new ones or spares in this particular case ;-)
