Depends of the condition of the ELMA switches, and if it requires recapping, modification etc. They are very expensive to rebuild. We have 3 TG12410 consoles at 301, only one is used, the others requires restoration now which would be around $30K just for the switches alone. That's after 30 years of use. You would need a tech that knows them well.

King Willy has one of the best I've ever seen.

I'd say between $30-$50K. (for a desk that requires restoring)

Larry sold his for US$79k as I recall...

Make me a silly offer and you can buy mine!

It looks like I under quoted, but my estimate was based on a unit that needed some restoration work.

not really it's really state dependant, there was one that sold in netherland recently for a bit lower than that price but it was pretty beaten

Actually that's not true, they recapped it twice, once at Klett's then again in the UK properly. As for as the switches etc though, all original...

And that desk wasn't without issues believe me, I think/hope they got it all fixed in the end though but it was a long haul as those Nigerian desks were in a very neglected condition. Two of them came up for sale around the time I got mine and around the time VK sold the 3 Capetown desks (of which mine is a 4th).

I know that this is 7 years after the last post on this thread, but I have just become aware of the TG12410 (having been previously 'familiar' with the REDD 51 and TG12345 because I am a huge Beatles fan).

Given what you wrote, King Willy, could the desk that you mention have been used to record 'Band On The Run' when Macca went to Lagos to record the beds for that album?

I suppose anything is possible, but it's extremely unlikey I would think. This was one of the mastering (transfer in EMI terms) consoles, and didn't have pre-amps. Brian Gibson might have a clue at TGMixers, or if you can find someone who worked at EMI Capetown they might know.

Hi William,
Many thanks for the incredibly swift, and helpful reply.

I did not know about TGMixers, so will head on over there, and see if Brian Gibson knows.

All the best.
