"This Harrison 4032 console was used to record MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER (Quincy Jones as musical producer and Bruce Swedien as engineer) , plus parts of OFF THE WALL at Westlake Studios. To date THRILLER has sold more than 104 million copies. The console was also used to record other great artists such as Paul and Linda McCartney, Billy Idol and many more.
The console is in excellent shape and has been used to record at CMI Records for years. It will make a great museum piece, collectors item or attraction to your studio.
The console is available for inspection in Fullerton, California. The buyer must deposit the agreed amount in an escrow, which will release funds to ebay and the seller upon the buyer's pick up of the console. Disregard any other method of payment or shipping herein. (This new seller could not manipulate the input screen).
The Board is 10' long with the Executive Desk and weighs several hundred pounds.
Probably the most expensive console that will ever be listed on this site unless an EMI Beatles console gets put on ebay. Beautiful console but only someone like Paul Allen is going to be able to afford this board."
