Here’s what Waves say about the REDD 17:
The REDD.1 console was Abbey Road Studios’ first dedicated stereo mixing system, which consisted of a REDD.8 mixer and a rack that housed its amplifiers and other components. In 1957, its successor was created: The REDD.17, designed by Peter Burkowitz of EMI’s German affiliate, was one of the first desks to conform to the design we’ve come to expect from mixing consoles, with EQ on each of its eight channels. Like the REDD.1 before it, the REDD.17 was a mono/stereo board.
