THE CHELSEA CONSOLE
The venerable Sound Techniques Chelsea was a one-off console that was custom built for Sound Techniques Studio in Chelsea, London. The Sound Techniques Studio was sold to Olympic Studio before it could be installed but the prototype module was used extensively at Sound Techniques from 1972 to 1976 at the studio for overdubs and was renowned for it’s sound. Sound Techniques, Ltd. have acquired this original, prototype module and will be releasing a 500 Series version of this venerable mic pre w/ three band Equalizer. The original Chelsea console is still intact and installed at a studio in Paris, France.
