We have the legendary Solid State Logic SSL 4040E/G analog console with 24 pcs SL611G (292) and 16 pcs SL611E (242) modules in the E-series frame available for sale!
This SSL 4040E/G was originally delivered from the factory on 11 April 1988 to Finnvox Studios located in Helsinki, Finland where it has been in constant use ever since until September 2022. It has a significant Finnish rock and metal scene history, incl. all Nightwish studio albums except one (the first), almost all Children Of Bodom albums, many Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, Amorphis, Lordi, Warmen, Tarot, Edguy, Avantasia albums mixed with it.
The console has been serviced by our tech team and is ready to be sold as described for the listed price or enhanced to customer's further specifications upon request for added cost.
Dimensions (W x D x H): 260 x 121 x 72 cm (arm rest, 105 cm meter bridge).
Fully recapped by our tech team – all capacitors have been replaced. Problematic parts have been changed and repaired. All channels have been passed audio, tested and serviced.
VU meters are serviced and working but bulbs are burned through. LED bulbs can be sold separately as an extra. Ask for a quote.
All non-functional switches have been replaced with new ones.
Aluminium strips covering the screws are included but they are not visible in the current photos.
The console would most likely need to be calibrated locally after shipping and installation. We would send the calibration manual upon request.
We can offer a custom made monitor box / speaker switching box upon request for an additional cost of 500 EUR VAT0%.
Back in the day the buyer could order ALT switch interface module from SSL factory, mostly used to switch between Main/alt monitors. Most of the consoles are missing the module, as is this. Currently it's possible to have two monitor pairs with this console. But the mini out potentiometer is very small, not convenient to use and recall level. Our custom made monitor box would solve this issue allowing to use the big monitor knob for volume and ALT button to switch between Main and secondary monitors.
Master section is missing the quad VU meters. VU meter slot blank panels are included. Center section blank panel can be made upon request.
PSU – Console works well with one original PSU. It also includes the long PSU cabling, at least 10 meters, TBC. We have another PSU that we can offer as spares. It is working but it would need additional servicing, renewing of components to be used daily. Ask for a quote with or without servicing.
We also have a PSU Switchover Unit available for sale separately. Ask for a quote.
Optionally as an extra we can offer a brand new Atomic or a Toft PSU-s, ask for a quote.
