Restoration of a Soundcraft Series 800 ( Not B ) My Journey.

Just scored another Soundcraft yesterday.

This one was sold as not-functioning.

Got it for very cheap.

It's a 18/8/2 with 4 AUX

Sweepable EQ are Mid Hi and Mid Low, the High and Low are fixed freq shelf.

Looked at it while starting cleaning it this morning....seems very well built, a lot of good routing options.....that seems like another good cheap mixer.

Removed all the pots and faders and put them all in soapy water in a tuperware.

There was 2 pot missing on the lot....If its possible, I'm thinking of buying new ones....prettier haha. I Mean the whole lot to be changed.

This thing is super dusty.

I have absolutely no experience with a solder Iron so I wont be the one recapping it.

But first I'll send the PSU to get a re-haul and possible step up the voltage for a possible increased headroom.

Here's the first pictures:
