The Amek M1000 Mixing Console

m100 mixing consoleBackseat Productions features one of the best sounding, most versatile, consoles ever built. The 1979 Amek M1000 is a hand wired, transformer balanced console with the same EQ as the hit-making Amek M2500 console. The M1000 however preceded the M2500 and features the best preamps that Amek ever produced according to the sole employee remaining at the company from that era. He was kind enough to overnight all the blueprints from this rare console to Bill Buswinka who did the renovation. Vintage Sowter transformers, M2500 EQ, and the last hand-wired console that Amek ever made. There might be another one of these in the USA ... maybe.
