Has anyone ever used one of these things? It's made in the U.K. By Revok (Studer.) I have a chance to pick up their 422 mixer for cheap & just wanted to know what they sounded like & if they would be worth picking up. I can't find any info on these things at all.

Here's a link to an old eBay auction with pictures.

Lamb Labs 4 channel mixer

Wow, that brings back some memories for me. I owned three of the Lamb Labs mixers from 1974-1978 at my first basement studio. They were originally designed to fit in the same case as a Revox tape deck, and were sold to music stores in small towns that did not have a studio. The concept was that you would rent the mixer, a Revox 2 track with sound-on-sound, 4 Beyer mics, 4 mic stands, and a couple of sets of Beyer headphones as a package, and do your own recording. The local store in my hometown bought the package, but hardly anyone rented the gear, so they gradually sold it off.. Our drummer bought the Revox, and I bought the mixer. The midrange was boost only (no cut) if I remember correctly. There were built-in compressors on the two output channels. It worked ok in my small town, but when I moved to Toronto, I found the mixers picked up rf interference like crazy. I still have some of the recordings I made with the Lamb Labs mixers, now almost 40 years ago.
