A rare opportunity to secure a stunning fifties valve/tube mixer in superb order. The sound of this thing is immense and the build quality is incredible – total over-spec engineering. It truly is a work of art. 

This Collins 212A mixer is for sale in full working order following a full and sympathetic service.

This console has two line inputs with eight mic inputs usually designated A or B mix output, but it has been carefully modified with direct outs on each channel and with L, C, R output for greater flexibility.

The console has been modified to allow direct outputs on each mic preamplifier and will be sold with H Pads in case the buyer wishes to use the console as a 10×2 line level mixer. The H pads allow you to lower the mic level to the appropriate line level without losing any quality from the source. The other modification is each input to the desk is now selectable between L,C,R which adds much more flexibility to the console.

Brokerage Sale Information:

Brokerage sale on behalf of a client. If you have gear that you want us to look at selling on your behalf then please look at our Commission & Consignment page for more information and get in touch to discuss your requirements.

The console is not at Soundgas and we have (sadly) not had a chance to test it ourselves yet. We only work in this way with trusted clients who understand their gear. That said, it is the buyer’s responsibility to confirm details provided in the listing by the seller are to their satisfaction – if you have any questions at all please let us know before we arrange shipping.

As a brokerage sale, payment will be made to us but will be held in escrow for the seller until the buyer confirms satisfactory receipt of the item. The buyer has 14 days from receipt to raise any concerns, after which we will release funds to the seller. Full terms available on request.
