    Default Vintage Crest Audio Gamble 56-EX For Sale

    We have decommissioned our Gamble FOH console even though she sounds so sweet. 56 sweet phat and tasty Gamble preamps, each with four band parametric EQ + an adjustable high pass filter and 8 sends. 8 stereo submixes, matrix and a massive, though slightly crusty, patch bay. Serial # 007, this console began it's life with the Aerosmith Pump tour, then several tours with Springsteen, the Dead and Dave Matthews Band (at least this is what I've been told). This is the $#!^ fo' sho! You can still smell the weed blowing out the cooling fans.

    She's been doing good easy time at a tiny little church in California. Now it's time for her to pour that delicious vintage analog sound in and out and all over your mixes. Make us an offer. Sitting in a road case, includes 2 power supplies and a tie line snake to tap that wicked patch bay. I'll even give you all my TT patch cables.

    What do you say? Want to see some photos?

    Oh, man! Why would you possibly want to get rid of that?

    Wish I could afford it......

    Wish I had a place to put it.......

    Hey John!

    It's in the wrong place in the wrong application and it really needs to be with someone skilled in maintaining her. For the right band or recording operation, this console could be quite an asset. Well cheaper than the standard fist full of plug ins trying to emulate this sound.

    oh man I mixed one of my first big open air shows on a Gamble - quite terrifying but the sound man the sound - those were the days where audio quality still mattered

    I'm just curious, but how much are you asking?
