Hill Audio Console???
Dont know if im in the right forum section here but has anybody heard of Hill Audio consoles. Just wondering if this thing is worth taking a look at:
Concept series by Hill Audio, this split console has 36 input channels, 24 buses, 6VCA groups, 12 full-time auxsends, 4band sweepeq, 63channel meterbridge, 480point built-in patchfield, power supply, all multi-track looms plus more, orig cost $65000 AUS must sell this week $7800 AUS.
The thing is probably older than you are...if you're serious about it, bring whoever will be your "tech" for the thing to check it out...it's a similar concept of having a mechanic check out a used car before you buy it.
I don't recall any 'Hill Audio' desks that ran in the $65,000 AUD range, but there could have been one. It's been a whole lot of miles, and quite a few chemicals since the last time I saw a Hill Audio mixer... :eek: Good luck.
Yes I have seen that in the Trading post for weeks too, if you can get it for a better price it might be great..It will look impressive
heres another link with a higher price
You will have to get a tech to check it out.
If there is anything wrong with any of the strips, parts etc might be hard to find.
I have thought about it myself, although I just set everything up around a control24 for the pro tools rig.
Good luck Dave (Indent Music)
PS The shit going down in the US is so sad, hope none of the regulars/or friends have been caught up in it.
thanx for the help guys. (anyone know any good websites with info or resources on Hill/or old analog consoles?)
ill probably check it out anyway and take a gamble if i can afford it.
PS good to see there is some australians in here when i need them!
