    Hello all. Do to recent hell that I will not go into I am in need of a new (for me) console. While a 16 channel would be ideal, I've just stumbled across a 24 channel desk by Hill Audio Ltd., made in Hollingborn, England.

    I've been able to run down a little info and an informed opinion, but was wondering if anyone here could elucidate?

    Anything at all would help.

    thank you
     
  2. Hill Audio used to operate out of a farm in Hollingbourne,Kent.Malcolm Hill used to build entire PA rigs;FOH desks,monitor desks,power amps,full-range pa cabs.They also operated a full touring service,crew and all.Kind of like a UK version of Clare Bros.I think they used to do AC/DC,in the late seventies.I seem to remember taking a Hill rig on a European tour in '79 which included a pair of huge full-range sidefill cabs which were custom built for AC/DC.They took about 8 humpers to lift them.Hill also made studio consoles I think,but were predominantly known for live gear.
    Of course,my memory isn't all it should be......

    Regards,Dave Lewis.

    mp - why should I run away?

    The previous opinion (by an RO heavyweight) said, "I know that model Hill [B-series]. It's not strictly speaking a recording desk but it ounds great. Might have to replace the faders, though."
