Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

by Chris Randall
 



Since everyone and his kid brother decided to jump on the Gear Porn Express this week, I thought I'd head on back to more familiar territory, and avoid synths for this edition. This triplet of Mellotrons is a result of the side-hobby of the owner of Wunder Audio, makers of the excellent and well-thought-of PEQ1 replacement cartridge for Neve 1073-sized racks and consoles.




It just gets sicker from there. He owns and has fully restored Eric Clapton's original Helios console. That sight alone is enough to make a grown man cry.




And, yeah, his rack is looking pretty nice, too. That schtonkin' big pair of Fairchild compressors probably does a nice job of warming his room up.


Much larger pictures and some talk are available in this thread on Gearslutz.

Wow, look at that Helios desk...

I use a Helios Eq-1, and it's the sweetest sounding eq/pre in my set up. I bet that desk sounds like a dream.

Heh. Wunder is definitely not going to have one of those in the house. Here's a link to his Neve console chock full of PEQ1 carts:
