Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon Recording Console Goes Under The Hammer

Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon Recording Console

The Abbey Road Studios recording console, EMI TG12345 MK IV, the same one Pink Floyd used to record Dark Side Of The Moon, , is scheduled to be auctioned later this month. The console, one of only two custom made by EMI engineers, which was housed in Abbey Road’s famed Studio 2 from 1971 to 1983, was also used to record solo records by Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, as well as work by Kate Bush and the Cure among many others.

The seller, producer Mike Hedges, purchased the console directly from Abbey Road Studios in 1983, when the studio upgraded their equipment. Hedges kept the console in his own studio since then, with the TG12345 MK IV still in “excellent working condition.”

It will also be viewable to the public at Bonhams Knightsbridge from March 19 until the sale. Although no estimate has been set, the console is expected to fetch six-digit bids.
