Mike Hedges's Abbey Road console up for auction...

Got a few quid laying about?
Pobably the most famous recording console from Abbey Road, used to record everyone from Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" to Hedge's sessions with Lee & the boys, has been put up for auction.
Vintage dust included.

"In 1983 the TG MK IV console was deemed out-dated and an upgrade was necessary to meet current recording requirements. The vendor of this lot, Producer Mike Hedges, was working at Abbey Road at the time and purchased the console directly from the studios. Since then Hedges has housed the iconic console in his personal recording studio and has maintained it in excellent working condition. Some of these features can be viewed working in the recent footage recorded by Hedges in February of this year. "

I'll go 50 quid as well and we'll split it if we win?

Listening the the Hedges sessions today and thinking about all that music going through that console.
