Connan Mockasin Hotel Gear

Connan Mockasin Hotel Gear

Conan Mockasin has released a bizarre and hilarious new album, Caramel, apparently recorded in a Japanese hotel room. Below is a picture that shows (presumably) part of his recording setup:

I wanted to ask if anyone can identify his gear. I can see a Shure SM7B lying on the bed. Any thoughts on what that small-format mixing desk might be? It looks like a modular design of some sort but I wanted to ask the more knowledgeable gear-heads around here.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Mate - that's just a press shot. Could be anything. Could be the gear he won't be parted from; could be something the film crew found in a junk store and thought would look cool on the shoot. Doesn't mean it was what was used, it might not even work. I can't tell you how many staged shots I've set up like this!

He's wearing Beyer DT770s I think...but whose?!

There's a bass drum in that picture too...maybe that was used on the album?! maybe not...

They're as likely to be props as they are the "actual gear", unless there's specific information to the contrary.

You're right, it could just as easily be some prop equipment rustled-up for the photo shoot. Even still, I'm interested in what that desk is, as it's about the size and form-factor I'm currently looking for. Anyone know?
