SSL 4000 Cards

Hi all,

This year I've been working on remakes of all the cards in the console. It's a slow process, but have so far completed a few of these, with many more on the way.

If anyone is interest, please get in touch. They are all hand assembled using Wima, Nichicon, Vishay, Bourns, TI components.

These look great!  When you say remakes - are you using old cards from SSL and re-populating them? They look so fresh and clean that I might assume you're creating these cards from scratch and silk-screening them! Will you be making them available for sale, or using in your own projects?

Projects like this really give me hope that these beasts can be maintained and stay relevant for many years to come.  Without this community they could easily fall into disrepair and become museum pieces.

Hi Marty,

They are fully built from new components, including the PCB. I redraw the schematic and PCB layout and get them made up in batches.
More than happy to make them available for anyone who needs them.

Not shown here but currently in production are the 149 Channel Amp, 10 Dynamics, 11 Group Amp, 12 Logic, 20 VCA & Cuts, 21 Status, 22 Monitor Mini LS, 27 Time Constants, 37 Fader Bus.

My place is looking a bit like a production line right now.

Component supply chain is a bit of an issue at the moment. Most old parts are available, but there are some tricky ones.
