I am sorting through my many boxes of collected DIY bits, salvaged components, PCBs and odd audio and broadcast remains that I collected over the years. All items are shipped via DHL from Hamburg.
I will update the list periodically.
Feel free to pick and choose :)

The list (photos in next post):

2x LAWO w995/6 and 1x LAWO w995/3, all 8-bandfully  discrete inductor EQs plus 19" 1RU frame and two connectors
They are almost identical, just the 995/6 have a +6dB peak indicator and seem a bit newer.

This are maybe the best and rarest LAWO EQs, unfortunately I never got around to using them.
I did test them and they sounded wonderful, but they have developed some issues, mostly due to their aged relays:

The cream-colored w995/3 is fully functional, JUST the relay seems to have gotten sticky. It doesn't close/open unless I tap on it.
The same applies for one of the w995/6 - the amphenol relay seems to have stopped working.
The other w995/6 only passes the low-end, like a hi-cut at around 200Hz.
I do have some (used) spare relays of the same brand/make , but did not get around to testing them.

I assume all of these issues are easily fixed, the full schematics are included as well, I just don't have the time anymore to deal with these kind of things.

There is a seller on the bay who is selling those Amphenol relays here: http://www.ebay.de/itm/252270568041?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

But I wonder if it wouldn't be best to skip the relay alltogether in this circuit?

Either way, these are amazing, very vintage sounding EQs once they work, so they're definitely worth the effort.

I also have a matching frame plus mating connectors which I can add if needed.

Price-wise I have no idea, as they need some work. Fully functional modules go for around 200-250. It's three modules, one could also be used for spares etc.
So please make me a reasonable offer.
Thanks :)
