My friend Janet Ault emails this evening with a quite remarkable list of studio equipment that’s for sale. Janet lives in the Phoenix area and through a series of connections is helping Brian James’ widow Kimberly sell what you see below. This is simply copied and pasted from the email Janet forwarded to me.
Below I have a list of items I was preparing to sell. I arrived at these used prices with help of Rick Allen, a sales rep, and Clear Channel studio tech. Let me know what you think. These are pretty fair prices, but I will entertain offers! All wiring (Brian used good ones I’m sure) will remain intact for each piece that was in use.
Items that were in use:
Manley Massive Passive Stereo EQ with Tubes $3500
Focusrite Producer Pack ISA430 $1400
Telos Zepher Xstream $4000
Aphex Aural Exciter Big Bottom Base 204 $200
Drawmer Dual Gate DS201 $400
IsoBox $700 (not shippable–too big & heavy)
Items that are new & never used:
Focusrite Liquid Channel $2300 (never used, Brian paid $2500)
ProTools HD1 96 i/o, Core System $4700 (never used, in box, Brian paid over 5K)
Equipment roll-around rack $200 (never used, pre-assembled, not shippable)
Yamaha O1V 96 Mixer $2100 (never used, in box, Brian paid $2400)
There are also some portable studio cases (luggage style) on wheels that are new, never used. Brian was starting to build a portable studio so there are quite a few odds & ends here. I have several hundred in wiring too, so if you are in need of getting connected and need some wires, there are numerous items still in packaging here that you can have for less than what you’d pay retail. There are other pieces in boxes, such as a Matrix headphone amp (4 jacks), but there’s so much in his office it’s hard to go through it all at once!
I will also throw out there that he had an entire studio he was going to build, still in boxes, in my garage, still on the pallet … he purchased the furniture from RaXXess. If you or anyone you know (preferably local since it’s all very heavy and large for shipping) who is looking to put together a studio and in need of furniture, we can take a look into this stuff as well.
If you’re interested, contact Janet Ault. She will help you get in touch with Kimberly.
