TAC Scorpion 16-8-2 (Deluxe mods)
« on: December 06, 2017, 05:52:47 PM »
I sell this mythical TAC Scorpion of well-known by all.
Configuration 16-8-2, armed to the teeth:
- Power supply completely re-covered with Cornell and Panasonic capacitors.
- Meter bridge totally restored and functional with original pieces.
-Full mixer recap with Panasonic FC electrolytic capacitors.
-The mic preamp was modified for a totally linear response without that harsh sound "Harsh" (McGuire SSM2015 mod with vintage silver mica caps).
-New NOS SSM2015  original of Analog Devices replaced on each channel.
-Operational TL072 updated and replaced in all channels, subgroups and master, for its superior model TLE2072 as in the high-end Amek.
- Aesthetic and functional perfect, as if it had left the factory.

To say that this table belonged to Lucas Sainz, guitarist of Los Pekenikes (60's Spanish pop band) and it was always in his personal studio.

A perfect opportunity to get a big mixer with history.

Interested by private.
Mixer located in Spain.

Price: 4500€ excl. shipping costs.

Wow, the meters look great! They don’t look original though, because they’re all red. Mine are yellow/green with red as the peak. How did you restore the meters? I need to fix mine.

The meters are original and extracted from another TAC Scorpion table, I got a complete meter bridge from a mixer that was scrapped.

With the purchase of the mixer, I give completely a new spare vumeter bridge, some spare capacitors from the recap process, schematics and original manual and a part I give 18 pcb of ELI Audio to make a future modification if it is desired, this modification in the mic pre  consists in the implementation of the chip THAT1510 (This package of  pcb's have a value of 200€ aprox. and I give it FREE!)
