Classic Calrec M-Series Analog Console 
Sonically incredibly characterful - this is like a Neve 80 series for its preamps and SSL 4000E series for its EQ.  In fact this console actually takes Neve modules and has a few.

The compressor limiters are something else altogether.  It’s a very unique board with tons of vibe!

The rare and sought after M-series Calrec consoles are famous for the recordings of Minus the Bear, The White Stripes and many more.  This desk has the same Calrec ‘Polar’ preamps and EQ once installed in the console at Abbey Road Studio 3.​
