    Not today. Yesterday I saved another studio survivor from the compactor. Klark Teknik DN360 proportional stereo graphic equalizer in near-mint condition. We are talking the finest British electronics, here.

    You can also use it to track noise from enemy submarines.

    Straight out of the bin from up in Tehachapi California. Roland weighted keys works perfectly. My buddy brought it down to me, I gave him 200 bucks.

    Too much equipment, too little space.

    I thought this was about Mr Crusher or ensign on the enterprise.

    We used to use those very same EQ's to do
    live audio for corporate events.

    Usually with an insert on the subgroup for
    wireless lav mics and the other side for the main
    podium microphone through another subgroup.

    To be honest, I was happy when I saw that piece of gear
    on the job site but I also liked the Ashley EQ just as much.

    I found an old Ashley at a local pawn shop and I bought it
    for $25.00!

    I had a chance to pick up an old White Graphic EQ that
    used rotary knobs instead of sliders......
    why i let that one slip through my fingers, ugh!

    About 5 years ago, I saw a road case lying in the bush on the side of the road, opened it up, Korg M1.

    That's really great! Speaking of road cases the next week I don't know if it was related or not but he brought me an old wooden flight case to put it in. It weighs as much as a truck and it has all the carpet ripped away, but it protects it in the garage. I wrap the keyboard in a big glad bag because the case smells like old sour beer. Ha. I wonder if your keyboard slid out of someone's truck. I'm 60 now but back in my twenties I remember a local hot shot guitar player in Long Beach named Rocco, he had a custom sunburst Les Paul and it slid out of his truck onto the 7 freeway. He got it returned by the highway patrol that found it, by the name tags it had! It was completely unscathed. Except for the case being scratched.

    Does anyone besides me remember the SAE Paragraphic?

    We had one of these at the school where I studied electronic music, mounted in a rack at head height. You could sweep the frequency control horizontally until you found the frequency that made your synth jump out of the mix. We used to compare notes and we all confessed to hitting the note and grabbing onto the rack handles to hold ourselves up!

    We used to have a particular problem with the Ashly EQs - as they aged, the wipers on the sliders would lift, and when that happened, that EQ band would go to full gain. That's tons of fun in the middle of a show on a monitor mix.

    Caig Labs spray was only a temporary solution, wholesale replacement of the whole bank of sliders was more permanent.

    Ashly was based in the city I used to live in.

    Tons of used stuff around, high-quality, and cheaper than Behringer crap.

    My whole pa processing was Ashly, never had a problem with it. The factory guys would take care of you, if it did

    Good for you! Everything comes around again. You may as well save vintage to prevent having to buy new. Someday someone will start promoting good sounding music rather than compressed data and you'll be way ahead of the game!
