Daniel Flickinger “The Association” Console
This console was originally designed as The Association’s live board. Some time in the 70s it was planted in a studio that they had. Producer/engineer/bassist David Vaught, http://www.studioexpresso.com/profiles/DavidVaught.htm, who was playing bass with and recording them at the time, would run the studio. When this arrangement ended, David bought the console and moved it into his studio, Camp David, where it stayed for roughly 35 years. Vaught made countless records on this console including Primitive Radio Gods ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XJxFAoiWSY ), Toad The Wet Sprocket -Bread And Circus, Lone Justice – This World Is Not My Home, Jon Wayne – Texas Funeral, The Counting Crows – Recovering The Satellites, and Peter Case – Sings Like Hell.
The channel buss assignment is done internally and can be reconfigured if necessary. The first eight channels are on group one, the next six are group two and the final six are group three. The Association Flickinger console operates on +- 24 volt power rails. Most modern consoles run on +- 18 volts. This gives the console a full +24 db headroom. All faders are Langevin Slide Wire type. They are very serviceable and the console comes with three spares. The console uses the Flickinger 535-2 amplifier cards located in the the meter bridge cabinets. All active electronics are in the meter cabinets. The control surfaces are all passive controls. The console has 20 channels of the very sought after Flickinger equalizers and preamps.
Modular construction so the whole system can be transported in a minivan or Volvo wagon.
