October 11, 2006: Sonic Circus Inc. has acquired another historic Neve console. This vintage Neve 8048, which was originally installed in EMI London, to the exacting specifications of Sir George Martin, is being fully restored at the Sonic Circus Tech Shop. The console has been completely recapped, (electrolytics and tantalums), all new custom patch bays are being wired, and Sonic Circus has enlisted Neve Guru, Fred Hill, to fabricate a new center section. New Acopian power supplies were installed to improve the noise floor of the console. The restoration will be completed with 48 new Neve 1081 Classic modules. Once restored, the 8048 is headed for the Saddle Creek Records multi-room facility in Omaha, Nebraska.
