Hey TuneEdge fans! Bonhams will be auctioning off an Abbey Road Studios EMI TG12345 MK IV recording console that was used by Pink Floyd. The sale will be in New York on March 27, 2017. It will be on view at Bonhams Knightsbridge from Sunday March 19 until the sale.

The console was used a lot between 1971 and 1983 in studio two. It was used fully on the infamous Pink Floyd album, The Dark Side of the Moon. It is one of the most coveted albums out there. I bet the license rights cost a fortune! The record was voted the Number One Rock Album of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine. It remained in the charts for 741 weeks after it was released. It is still one of the best selling albums of all time.

This console was one of only two in existence that was custom made by engineers at EMI as an update for the MK II model. Many musicians and other industry greats such as Brian Gibson consider it one of the best consoles ever created.

Producer Alan Parsons used this wonderful piece of equipment to create the ten track album. They really experimented with atmospheric soundscapes and really pushed the boundaries of psychedelic art rock and jazz and even some blues-rock influences.

This console was also used by some of the biggest names in music history. Paul McCartney and his group Wings recorded there. It was also used by Beatles George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Kate Bush also used it as well.

The association with Pink Floyd shows the fact that this is one of the best consoles ever built. One lucky fan could win this piece of equipment at the auction. This is a must have for any musician or music aficionado. If you have not heard Pink Floyd’s music before, then you should definitely give Dark Side of the Moon a listen. It will blow your mind!
