Product Description

Tascam M-216 16-channel mixer with direct out mod for sale.

NOTE: This unit is 240v. Not switchable. If you want a 100v version, and/or a cleaner example let us know. 100v models will run OK on US voltage.

includes a rugged road case.

Sound-wise these are, as you might expect from their era and high quality manufacture, great. Warmth and character are instantly added to whatever you put through, the overdriven sound is lovely, and the 3-band EQ gives excellent control.

Will be serviced including recapping of power supply and cleaning of all pots, sliders and switches. Defective parts are replaced with original spec parts from another donor mixer. Some crackle may be possible after a period of not being used but this should clear.

DIRECT OUT MOD: When this is serviced we will modify it with Direct Outs on all channels. The 8x Tape In RCA sockets will be replaced with 1/4" jack sockets for the outputs (and for the 16 channel we will drill holes for the other 8 sockets). They’re post-fader (so post Pre/EQ), effectively parallel to the pan pot and effect bus control. This means you get the benefit of the level off the post fader op-amp - less likely to affect the overall bus output, and a more user friendly level out of the direct outs. Plus, you get the bonus of being able to drive both the Pre op-amp, and the Bus op-amp  to get a harder driven signal if that’s what you’re into... (It’s also where the M-30 and Model 3’s direct out comes from, so will react similarly).


Good. <span style="color: #ff6600;"><strong>Photos are after service but BEFORE cleaning!
