In the late 70's, over half of the records in Billboard's Top 200 were recorded and/or mixed using MCI equipment.

dropping the bottom on a 400..what to expect

Hi I need to access the bottom of the console, should I expect anything out of the ordinary when I drop the bottom. I imagine the wires are tied to the console somehow. Or will they all fall out on top of me, thanks.

Dear Charles,

The cabling should be secured in place unless someone has gone in and mucked with it. I would be more concerned about dirt balls, mouse droppings, etc. hitting me in the face. <g>

Best,

Depending on where it once was, expect a pile of white power and some broken up buds to come raining down on your face.

After all, it did come from "The Days of Lines and Noses".
