Pink Floyd's 1970s recording console set to be auctioned

Console used to record'The Dark Side of the Moon up for auction

Assuming Pink Floyd do not play at Glastonbury - and given the coolness between Roger Waters and David Gilmour, that seems a reasonable assumption to make, no matter how tantalising the speculation - then the Floyd obsessive in your life has a hole they need filling.

The London band's eighth studio album, released in March 1973, has gone down as one of the greatest rock records of all time, and was primarily recorded at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London.

The recording console used by Pink Floyd to record their classic album 'The Dark Side of the Moon' will go up for auction later this month. Rock and Roll Through the Lens sale that is taking place on March 24th in NY.

While no estimate has been set, the console is expected to fetch six-digit bids. The console was built by Abbey Road and EMI engineers working together, and was among the most advanced of its time when new.

Now owned by producer Mike Hedges - who bought it from Abbey Road in 1983 - the console is still in an "excellent working condition" and is now housed in Prime Studios in Austria.

For something a little less expensive, and for those without room to store a recording console, an early 1970s Pink Floyd promotional poster is being sold at the auction with an estimated cost of between £250 and £410. It will be available for public viewing from March 19 until its auction date.
