  • REDD 47 (Phab) / REDD 51 (Philter)

    I just received the (Phab) and (Philter) pre and eq set from our friends at Phaedrus Audio UK. We're completing a classic Abbey Road front end for the studio and these are lovely recreations of the tube pre and eq sections of the EMI Redd 51 mixing desk used by The Beatles in the mid to late sixties. Essentially everything from Help to the White Album was recorded with this desk and signal chain. Next week I'm loading these units up with some vintage nos Telefunken tubes to get them a touch more authentic. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the transitor based (Hydra) they have coming soon as well, covering as much of the English sound as I ever wanted.
