Where to look for used analog consoles

I keep reading these posts about people getting some $20,000 analog board for $1500. How come I can't find one. Where should I look other than Vintageking.com and ebay. Or....anyone got something???

If the shipping costs from Nashville don't scare you off, try www.blevinsaudio.com

In general brokers are going to be the most expensive way to go. You have to hunt, look on Gearslutz classifieds, ebay, craigslist. The advantage of brokers is there might be some sort of guarantee and they usually have great shipping.

When I was looking for a Neotek a few years back, I tried a few brokers. MOST of them weren't worth a damn, some didn't even respond to numerous inquiries about boards they had listed on their websites. There was one, though, who gave me a lot of great advice even though he didn't have what I was looking for. He actually knew of the console I had found from a private seller and encouraged me to buy it.

Contact Paul at Odyssey Pro Sound. He's one of the most honest folks I've run across in this business.

Anyone know anywhere in the UK/Europe that's decent for second hand gear? Would really like to get a half decent 16 or 24 channel analog desk for under £1000.

bwrecordings.....I just saw the console on old listings. Nice but a little small. I'd like 24 channels at least. Thanks.

Paul Savasta is a real good guy, I got my first console from him years ago, and when I got my second console thru gearslutz it was a huge shipping job which Paul totally hooked up for me.thumbsup
