    Mystery Machine

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I was told by my father that an uncle of mine was offered a large piece of equipment for some work he did. Whatever it is, he doesn't want it.

    Between the two of them, I heard many interesting things that have gotten my mind racing trying to think of what it could be. Things like: "once owned by the CBC", "first of its kind", "16 track" and "huge", "belongs in a museum"

    Any ideas guys?

    While waiting for pictures, I've managed to set myself up for disappointment. Massive, 16 tracks, belongs in a museum, first of it's kind?! I'm hoping for an Ampex MM1000... Yeah, I know... The odds are pretty slim, aren't they?

    Im guessing tape machine too. CBC. It would be some sort of sound/broadcasting equipment.

    I hope it's a tape machine! I wouldn't mind a good good relay logic machine!

    I'll be sure to post about it here when I know!

    Judging by the, albeit, vague size he described, I can't imagine it would be. But I can't be sure until he sends me some pics. Hopefully this week.

    Well, it is Canada after all.

    With all the fires...there won't be much logging.

    OK...not trying make fun of the Canada fires...it's total destruction up there in Alberta...feel bad for those folks.

    Probably a previously unreleased double LP from some obscure band.

    Logging! lol Touche!!!

    If it's a reel to reel deck, I can't complain. If it's a large turntable, that could be interesting as well. If it's a nice mixing board, well free is good.

    I'm just too preoccupied with finding out what it is. I can't focus on anything else at the moment. My mind keeps drifting to that mystery machine. I hope I get an email with some pics soon.

    The mystery machine turned out to be a mixing board. I don't know what make or model, but I'm not interested anyway. My dreams of an Ampex MM1000 are crushed!
