What you DO NOT want to find in your console! They love the heat and winter is coming!
Rodent urine erodes the traces. Cleaned up the mess and fixed a few module traces and all is well now...
Something like this may save you lots of grief:

I've heard that in some cases rat droppings on the pcb will actually improve a band's sound. But I trust your expertise Dave

I pull my strips every few months, and my master once a month to check for this and my cpu battery,,

Man, that sounds like ...

Oh, crap!

Built some patch bays last week for a 32 channel Rupert Neve Designs 5088 desk that is headed to Jamacia. Wish I was going with them!
Thanks to Donnie Duncan and Clay Van for the soldering and prep assistance!

Got some "finished" photos from Gar Ragland at Citizen Studios in Asheville NC. The renovated WWNC radio studio worked great as the control room for Gar and the way he works and records. The Rupert Neve Designs 5088 and the ATC speakers brought it all together. The large adjacent space is wired and ready to record in, and the venue on the first floor will be as well, once that renovation is completed. There will be Citizen Vinyl, a vinyl pressing facility that can be viewed by visitors, as well as a record store on the first floor as well. It has been a great project to be involved with! ...

The last few weeks has been busy with shop repairs on some Neve rack modules, AMEK Media 51 module recaps, an MPS 15 PSU repair or two, and a trip to Atlanta for a studio construction site visit. I also did an automation repair at Grey Cat Sound for Patrick Phillips on his 60 channel Media 51 in Peachtree City, GA. This next week... more shop repairs and acoustical design. Happy to be busy!

Finally got back to Asheville NC to finish installing the Rupert Neve Designs 5088 at Citizen Studios. Gar Ragland has moved in! We finished the room acoustics a few months ago and received the console a few weeks ago. All the gear is hooked up and ready to go. I will post final “cleaned up” photos with the cool color changing LED art deco lights sometime soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Very sad to learn that my friend Ben Elliot of Showplace Studios in New Jersey has passed away. Ben was passionate about music and his craft as producer and engineer. He worked with and touched the lives of many musicians. Prayers for his family. Rest in peace Ben. ... See MoreSee Less

Great memories for that particular model! Stay safe David!

Brings back great memories of sharing a pijiu or two in Beijing

Will it be cheaper to purchase it or recap it?

Maybe ours needs a little brother!😝

Ultimate design.

We have spent the last few weeks in Asheville NC working on a new project for Citizen Studios. They will move into this space, which was formerly WWNC radio studios, and used to broadcast live music in the 40’s and 50’s. There is an adjacent studio space, as well as a sister venture on the 1st floor called Citizen Vinyl, which will be a vinyl record pressing plant. The facility will also house a record store, cafe, and small performance area. We are excited to be involved with this project. I will post finished photos when I return there next month. ...
