Tapco model 6000 Mixers (Analog)

Tapco model 6000

Anyone know how the preamps on a Tapco model 6000 sound?

I just found out my dad was given one for free and I'm curious as to what kind of reputation this piece of equipment holds. It looks older, like late 80's or early 90's, but I don't know for sure.

Oh my. The 6000R? ('R might have meant the reverb?) That was the first mixer I bought, and I picked it 'cause at the time it sounded truer than the others.. But back then music store PA gear was, well let's just say that was Greg Mackie's calling wasn't it- to up the game for us? heh
Anywho.. It's been so long now to be honest I have no current opine' for ha.
I know the goo he put in the pots dried out- you might find they're tough to use. But fire it up. Let us know.thumbsup

Ha thanks. The pots are a little tough. And I didn't see any "R" in the name, just 6000. I'll put up a pic or two tomorrow and maybe get a short vocal track up with a comparison.

Here is an audio test of the Tapco. I compared it with my profire interface as well as a behringer board. Everything was leveled out as far as eq goes. I forgot to zero the eq on the behringer, so i rolled off some bass and mids and boosted the highs a bit in protools on that track. Let me know what you think.
