I haven’t posted in forever, mostly due to the fact that I’ve been working like crazy or travelling. Since the last post I’ve been toiling in our new room, which is anchored by a beautiful vintage API 3224 installed by greg mcneer and myself. wiring was planned and executed beautifully by mike rhodes and his crew of miscreants.

The monitor section of the API has incredibly chintzy faders that are prone to seizing and failure. They also sound bad compared to the P&G faders used for the GML automation system.

The solution is replacing the monitor faders with sweet-sounding P&G models with the same throw. Luckily Dale Manquen is available to help you with any P&G needs you may have

The new faders feel and sound much better than the old ones. the original caps and card faces hide the modification and keep things looking vintage.
