The console, one of only two custom made by EMI engineers, was used extensively between 1971 and 1983 at Abbey Road’s studio two to record artists including Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, George Harrison and more. According to expert and former Abbey Road engineer Brian Gibson it’s “the greatest console ever constructed.”
