As spring is trying to spring here in Southern Ontario, we here at Number 9 are trying to foster a new sense of growth too. Sure, we just purchased a relatively new Neumann M147 tube microphone, but we also purchased a terrific set of these original Neve 1073 channel strips. Sometimes old just means old; we could have purchased them new. Then again, sometimes old means “vintage”, like wine. Solidly racked in a BAE enclosure, in absolutely terrific condition, these strips are a simply outstanding new addition to our vintage gear collection. You should probably check them out. We think they’re worth every penny we spent on them. No, we didn’t line up the knobs for the photo shoot – these aren’t show ponies, they’re our new workhorses. Book a session soon and find out for yourself why what is old is new again at Number 9 Audio.
