Yamaha PM2000 32x8x8 Mixing Console w/ Producers Desk/Rack $5,500


"Yamaha PM2000 Mixing console in great condition. It is a 32 channel version of the console, with 8 busses and 8 matrix outputs. I have two spare bus modules and one spare channel strip. The op amps on the main output matrix have been upgraded to John Hardy 990 op amps. I have replaced all of the jumpers on the back plane of the console to eliminate any issues with ittermittent connections. I have also put stepped pots on the Matrix outputs. The output strips have all been recapped and the power supply has just been recapped and serviced. I have built a rack that attaches to the right side of the console, with a small producers desk with a drawer. It can be left on or taken off for shipping.
I have the owners manual and the service manual."

Yamaha PM 1000-32 fully restored, Neve 1272 master outs US $7,000


"This 32 channel PM-1000 has been completely recapped and serviced by qualified technician. New cap values were supplied by Electrical designer Dan Kennedy (Great River Electronics) This increased the bottom end, mid range and high end. A PM 1000 never sounded so good! Exceeding factory specs.
On each of the four master buss outs a Neve 1272 was installed using the circuitry to sum and as an output driver, the way the 1272 was designed to be used in the early 8014, 8028 etc... This included using original Neve BA 183 cards and Carnhil input and output transformers. A separate power supply drives the output buses. Increased headroom.

All discrete circuitry and transformer balanced input and output transformers.

Over $10,000 invested in quality tech time and materials

Yamaha PM1000 Discrete Inductor EQs Neve API Quad 8 US $2,500

Yamaha PM-1000_01
Yamaha PM-1000_02
Yamaha PM-1000 POWER SUPPLY_01


"Up for sale is a fully restored Yamaha PM1000 16 channel fully discrete 4 buss console. It has been completely recapped with new Nichicon audio grade capacitors and the master section has been upgraded with new low-noise transistors. The small internal power supply has been replaced with a huge external Accopian regulated supply for the 44VDC voltage rails supplying tons of headroom. All the input channels utilize transformers for the mic/line inputs and inductors for the EQ section as was used in 1970's Quad Eight, Neve and many other discrete console designs of that era. According to Bob Ohlsson of Motown fame "John Windt who had previously worked for Quad Eight (and Motown in Detroit) played a big part in the design of the PM-1000." The PM1000 when fully restored sounds fantastic and on par with any vintage console - but unfortunately most are in poor shape and badly need new capacitors and an updated power supply. To my ears the preamps sound very similar to the design used on early Quad Eight and Langevin consoles - with slightly different coloration due to the transformers used.

Everything works perfectly - although some switches and knobs will need some occasional cleaning with deoxit as should be expected with any 1970's console. The headphone section was disabled when I upgraded the power supply (runs off of a 12V power supply instead of the 44V supply used for the rest of the console), but I can enable it if you need it or can include an outboard headphone amp with the sale (which I think sounds better than the internal headphone amp anyways). The headphone connector panel on the front of the console was dented at some point before it got to me, but otherwise the console is in great cosmetic condition with only minor scratches on the wood veneer. It's been in use as a tracking sidecar in my smoke-free studio.

Shipping will be expensive - please contact me for a quote. Local pickup is definitely preferred so you can listen to the console before it gets to your studio. I also have a second complete PM1000 console available that has not been restored I'll be listing (for cheap) as well. Feel free to email with any questions. Check my feedback and bid with confidence!"

Selling a vintage 16 channel Yamaha PM-1000 circa 1974-1976

this Console works flawlessly.

this one has been hot-rodded and has many features / upgrades above the stock version.
sounds fantastic. has all discreet topology and inductor based eq's like some neves.
below is a list of the modifications.

- Entire board has been recapped. the modules and the power supply. i am not sure what kind of caps were used but i do have some fairly close up pictures
and i could tell you the codes on any specific capacitor.

- Direct outputs have been added. there is a very handy gold plated Cannon plug that inserts into the back of the console to provide 16 direct ouputs. insert the plug, twist to lock and you've got 16 direct outs. very well thought out. the plug connects to a Mogami snake with 16 neutrik XLR's on it. the cabling is about 15 feet and was frequently used as a remote preamp set in the live room.

- Output transformers have been added on every channel. they are Tamura GA81720's. these balance the outputs and add several db of gain to the circuit.

- All pots and switches have been lubed and cleaned or replaced. all pots are smooth, no scratches, and all switches work as intended.

the board is in great shape. there are a few VU bulbs out and a few dings and scratches on the board in general but everything else is 100% working and will be in use till sold.

a copy of the manual can be downloaded at;

with this board, you can use the 16 preamps directly out for tracking, access the bus matrix to combine certain channels together, use all or some of the board for mixing and stemming or you can do any combination of the above.

This has worked like a dream. i've made many records with this board and some have sold very well, and been in films/TV. i am happy to give you examples upon request.

this asking price reflects the cost of the original console, the research into modifications, all parts included (transformers, caps, wiring, plugs, cable, xlr's) and many hours of labor.

This is the Story of the PM1000 as told by Harvey Gerst;

Time: Early 70's, Southern California

Yamaha had just tried to enter the guitar amplifier market with an amplifier line that just plain sucked.
They were so embarrassed by this line, they actually bought back every one of them from their dealers and destroyed them
(over a million bucks worth, I was told).
Anyway, they came to me and hired me as a consultant, and I helped them developed their "G100" etc... line of amps.
Their long range plan was to have at least a 5% share of the American amplifier market.
As we were finishing up the G line, their American product manager, showed me some pictures of a 4 channel board they were working on and asked
if there was a market here for that product. They were concerned about introducing it here because it would be very expensive, and they didn't want another fiasco by
showing the wrong products for an American market. The pictures were of a prototype PM1000.
Teac, Dokorder, and several other tape recorder companies were already starting to sell 4 track recorders here,
and I suggested that the timing would be perfect for the PM1000.
I guess they decided to take my advice, and I believe they used the Neve as their model when they designed it.
They lost money on the PM1000, I believe, by making it literally bulletproof.
Over-engineering was important after coming off of a big embarrassment with their first guitar amp line.
It was all Class A design and "overkill" was their watchword.
At the same time, they started to introduce their High Fidelity products as well, with recievers,
amplifiers, and tuners; all made to a really high set of standards.
They learned from their first mistake in the American Market, and never repeated it.

a great value for about $218.75 per channel.

feel free to contact me with any questions. i have many more pictures. the board will be installed until the day it sells. contact me if you would like to come see it / test it.

the bottom line is that this console has served me incredibly well and has never once disappointed me. i'm sad to see it go but i need the money.

buy this board and cut hits.
