The gear behind Abbey Road Studios: REDD.17 DESK
We continue our new series with a look into one of EMI's greatest designs: the REDD.17. The first in a powerful series of valve mixing desks, EMI engineers Peter Burkowitz and Lenn Page revealed the REDD.17 in 1958. It was EMI’s first console to appear in desk form. Renowned for their smooth EQ curves, extraordinary warmth and lush stereo imagery, there’s something magical about the REDD desks that sound like no other consoles.
