Historic SSL 9040J
This is the former Townhouse (Olympic) London SSL 9000J. This console was originally delivered as a 72 input 1997. We acquired the console in the year 2000 and recently reduced it to a 40 input SSL 9040J. The console was rented to Aerosmith in 2001 for the home recording and mixing of Just Push Play, engineered by Mike Shipley at Joe Perry’s house. Afterwards it was acquired by Sound on Sound in NYC that eventually merged into Right Track/MSR Studios. While on 48th Street in NYC the console was responsible for countless hit sessions in Studio A – Artists including Madonna, Elton John, Biggie Smalls, Mary J Blige, Booker T, John Zorn, Pat Metheny, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Yo Yo Ma, Chick Corea, Christian McBride as well as countless broadway scores.
