Studiomaster 16-8-2Studiomaster made great mixers right through the 1980's, and here's one that appears from time to time, the Series_5 - similar to the classic Studiomaster 16-8-2, but you could add-on extra mixer channel 'blocks' to this series -
The image above shows a 16-8-2 with 3 additional 4 channel blocks added (you often find them sold with these extra channels) - So this board above is now a 28-8-2 board! ,p> Like all the Studiomaster series you get great amp's and Eq on the channels, this console features the usual 3 band EQ with swept mid and swept bass sections - you get 5 aux sends, with sends 1-3 being switchable between pre/post fade as a group.
They can be a tad hissy these old series_5's, but my mate had one and the sound blew my newer mixer away... whilst his series_5 was slightly noiser, the definition of the mix and the fatness of the eq is outstandind, and you get a really thumping well defined non-muddy bass end full of warmth with the sweep bass & mid eq... all in all they are great tho for the cheap price, and you can upgrade the IC's if you like to make the board quieter; they are well supported and mod's are no problems for the Studiomaster range in general cos they are quality British boards and easily upgraded, but don't think they are annoyingly noisey, they are not, the difference in the mix quality is worth that tiny bit of extra old-board hiss you might get... a classic board !!
