This item has sold. Contact us for information about what we have incoming.


A superb desk – we have one of these in our studio. Brokerage sale on behalf of a client – this desk was part of his working studio until recently.

Photos and info supplied by the seller.

Chilton QM3 – 24-8-2 Mixing console
– 24 Mic amps & EQ
– 3 x C30 Stereo compressors installed
– Direct outs
– Ex BBC with custom BBC PSU
– Flipped faders
– Full re-cap in 2014

The desk is a brokerage sale and is not in our office. It is in the south of the UK and until recently it was being used in the studio of a producer we have worked with on the sale of gear previously (so very much a trusted source). That said, as a brokerage sale, the final deal will be between you and the seller direct so you will need to do whatever you need to to satisfy yourself it is what you want. They have given us the information and photos you see here but if you need to know more please email a list of questions to 

Known faults:

  • Midrange EQ switch needs replacing on one of the channel. The EQ functions but the switch is stuck in the 5khz position. 
  • Mic Amps on channels on 2 channels need repairing. The line on these channels work. I haven’t looked at fixing as these channels have always been used on a line input.
  • Bar graph on channel 24 meterbridge is faulty
  • Bar graph on channel 3 meterbridge illuminates intermittently
  • 2 Faders are intermittent and need cleaning 

Brokerage sale: information on the servicing and functioning of this desk has been provided by the seller. We have not tested every function in detail ourselves. See below for additional notes on brokerage sales. 

Price does not include shipping. Collection preferred. If you are within 30 miles of the M1/M25 in the UK then we may be able to get it transported by our courier – please ask if you need a quote. If you are more than 30 miles from the M1/M25, or outside the UK, please get in touch before purchasing.

Brokerage sale on behalf of a client. Please get in touch if you have gear you want us to consider selling via brokerage or commission/consignment.

As a brokerage sale, payment will be made to us but will be held in escrow for the seller until the buyer confirms safe receipt of the item.
