Aurora Audio GTQC Preamp Compressor Channel Strip Grandmaster Recorders #28712

Availability: In stock



Techno Empire is honored to present for sale this piece of recording equipment from legendary music studio, Grandmaster Recorders. Originating in the 1970’s as Hollywood Bijou Studio, where Stevie Wonder wrote and rehearsed his classic album “Songs in the Key of Life”, it later changed its name to Grandmaster Recorders where it produced dozens of acclaimed albums such as Red Hot Chili Peppers “One Hot Minute”, Beck’s “Midnight Vultures.” Tool’s “10,000 Days”, No Doubt’s “Tragic Kingdom” & Queens of the Stone Age “Songs for the Deaf” to name a few.


BRAND: Aurora Audio


FUNCTION: Preamp/Compressor Channel Strip

DESCRIPTION: This listing is for an Aurora Audio GTQC Preamp/Compressor Channel Strip.

This unit is a very personal item to Grandmaster Recorders as Aurora Audio was more or less born there as a partnership between early Neve designer/engineers Geoff Tanner and David Langford and Grandmaster studio owner Alan Dickson. This particular item is one of the earlier versions of this model if not the first personally built by Geoff Tanner.  

ACCESSORIES: Bundled with an IEC cable, this item comes only as seen in photos, and does not include any other accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Near Mint. This one looks like it was installed in a rack a few years back, then left there to look pretty ever since. The unit shows very little use or handling. Aside from a few light rack scratches on the top and bottom, this unit is flawless, and the front specifically looks out-of-the-box new. Wonderful looking device! 

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent. Both sides of this channel strip are effective and have loads of punch to them. The EQ is smooth and quiet, while still being perfectly capable of blasting when needed, while the compressor's myriad settings are all perfectly operational. Killer combo in exquisite condition!

ACTUAL WEIGHT: 12.70 lbs.

ACTUAL DIMS: 19" x 1.625" x 12.75"
