Sonic Youth’s Neve Console For Sale – A10047 Custom 51-Series
The Sonic Youth Neve 1982/1983 A10047 Custom 51-Series console could be yours at this location.
When Sonic Youth needed to replace the console for their Manhattan studio in 1999, they acquired this National Film Board of Canada-commissioned custom Neve, one of two custom consoles. The console could mix in the then-still-novel 5.1 surround format. The consoles were expensive, carefully-pieced-together partly from existing Neve components (the channels were largely built from modified modules from the 5106/5116 desks) while other sections were completely custom, created specifically for the NFB.
Finally, the whole thing was contained in a brilliantly extravagant wrap-around producer’s desk setup, with integrated 19” racks and the best patch-bay location anyone had ever seen. The console had no mic preamps of its own, as they would be unnecessary for surround film mixing.
