I have the SSL G 4056 (now down to 48 channels), that was in Olympic Studio 1 (man that was long to figure out, thank goodness they keep receipts from 1987!) from 1987 - 1994, before they replaced it with a 9000.

After some digging, we discovered this might be Prince on it -- he used Studio 1 twice, in 1989 and 1992.

Studio build won't be done till the end of the year, so it's being given a good seeing to by Mark Derksen in the Netherlands (he is THE man).
Pic of it on the chopping board at his.

Peace!

Nice provenance Olympic had good techs and cared so unless its been butchered since it should be pretty fit.

Mark Derksen is indeed a great guy for SSL owners to know
He removed the producer panel from a G4048 for me
Such a nice and knowledgable man

Hello guys, new to posting & love the thread. I'm about to purchase an SSL 6056 E/G. If I run into any problems are parts somewhat available? In NYC & any info or advice would be very welcomed. Thanks so much..

3 SSL's in our house....

1) 8000G+ from Record Plant Hollywood 1992-2008 (SSL 1). Ours has been fully recapped, reswitched, Tangerine and Atomic.

2) 4000E 1986 Black EQ (heavily modded) Best way to learn an SSL is to rebuild one!

3) Matrix

Hi all, this is my first post on GS. However, I've been following the forums for 15 years. Just didn't have anything to add of value to the discussion so never made an account.

This thread is old but I was wondering if anyone could recommend an SSL 4k E/G+ technician in the Orange County, CA. area? I'm looking to tag along with him/her to take high-resolution pictures and measurements of the console/parts/cards/interior. Alternatively, if someone flat out owns a 4000 in the OC or LA area, I can come by and take pictures of what I need, BUT also take professional pictures of your studio (+editing) as a trade/thank you



Thanks

Hi gearslutzz friends..

Last month we received our SSL 4040 G+ from Sweden. The desk is almost new, never used before, because was the third console in the line. It was switched on only for some hours per month since 1996, to keep the caps in normal life. Next January i will proceed to upgrade to THD Tangerine system and ultimation faders.. this desk sounds !! Amazing ..

Hello, did you buy the 6048? I owned a 6048 for many years. Parts are available and most of them inexpensive. More important you need a tech "friend" to serve you SSL, it needs TLC now and then ...))
