Everything I tested worked as it should. In very nice condition, a little scratching and wear, but overall very nice. All channels work perfectly with no noise or scratchy pots, and sounded especially clean after applying a little Caig Fader Lube. Reverb and noise gate working fine too. A few of the switches are missing as pictured below, but they all work and switch just fine. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

From research I found out it is a vintage ARP INSTRUMENTS 8 Channel analog mixing Board MODEL 1733 from the 1970’s.
This mixing board looks to be in very good, used but unabused condition with only minor cosmetic issues and 6 missing knobs(easy fix).
It is clean but does have a few minor light scratches or rubs from being moved around(nothing major).
Also there is a small chip out of the right plastic cord storage bracket on the rear(small)(stated for clarity)(see pic 6).
Operation wise the meter lights come on when I plug it in and all slides and knobs seem to function well but I have no way of testing this mixer so it is being sold as-is untested(no returns)(stated for clarity). ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

8 mic/line inputs w/ EQ, two aux inputs, two aux busses and a headphone amp. Mic pres and EQ both sound surprisingly great. Each channel has a switchable pad at 0dB, -20dB or -40dB, sweepable three band EQ (low, mid and high with 15dB of boost or cut).
The master section contains a stereo graphic EQ and a mono graphic EQ, both with 15dB of boost or cut at 100Hz, 220Hz, 460Hz, 1KHz, 2.2KHz, 4.6KHz & 10KHz.
There’s also one stereo and two mono lowpass filters sweepable from 20Hz to 200Hz. There’s an XLR input for a talkback mic that’s routable the left and/or right master output, the effects out or the monitor out.
The BEST thing about this console is the built-in analog delay. Warm and gritty bucket-brigade delay. Beautiful.
This board is in great shape considering it’s over 30 years old. Some of the cue send switches could probably stand to be replaced, and channel 5 is not passing signal (I don’t have to time or inclination to have my tech check it out). This unit is being sold as is. Other than that, everything works as it should. Cosmetically it looks gorgeous. NO missing knobs or fader caps. 100% complete. It’s BIG and HEAVY. They don’t make ’em like they used to.
This is a rare unit and would be a great companion to some old ARP analog synthesizers.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
