Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ Recording Console Sells for $1.8 Milli

A console that was housed at EMI's legendary Abbey Road Studios in London for 12 years, where it recorded Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon and many other albums, was sold at an auction yesterday. The winning bid was $1.8 million.  The news comes via Rolling Stone, who add that the identity of the buyer has not been disclosed. Between 1971 and 1983, this particular 16-track, 40-channel TG12345 MK IV -- one of two that were built by EMI's engineers -- was kept in Abbey Road's Studio 2, during which time Paul McCartney and Wings, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Kate Bush and the Cure also used it. When the studio upgraded, it was sold to producer Mike Hedges, who has maintained possession of it throughout the past 34 years!!
