alrighty... we have a date to get the Neotek ... the 14th!
this week's activities... finish up all the last minute jobs that can't wait and start taking apart the current setup. the week after... move out the current console and re-arrange the room. i can't wait to see the crud that get's uncovered as i move this place around. also... ever notice how crowded a room gets as soon as you start moving things out of their normal spots? i fear my entire house will become overtaken by racks, guitar cases, acoustic paneling, speakers, etc. as i play pro-audio tetris for a month.

My biggest mistake on my build was not to figure on enough storage space.

cables
guitars
guitar cases
amps
cymbals
snare drums
speakers
the list can go on and on.................................

Yes, yes, and yes...I am totally out of space as well - the thing that I didn't take into account for were not just what you mentioned, but OFFICE SPACE!!! 

Adding to your list, if I may:

- place to work on repairs, cable building, soldering station, whatever
- there is always a couple of old smaller mixers laying around
- small powered PA heads and cabs for the little gigs I support here and there
- Media storage and a fireproof safe
- Filing cabinets
- Old gizmos/ADATs/whatnots that you may need once a year, but still need them that one time a year

Soft straps that can be wrapped around the main chassis and made reachable from all angles can be very useful too.

There WILL be times when you simply cannot reach with both hands to hold the frame. If you can at least grab a strap to control things it makes a huge difference.

Yes, get cheap trucker's glove. Very Wise.

They were essential when touring with a full Hammond and Leslie rig especially if you wanted your fingers!

step one of the console move done... we took all the modules out and wrapped them up tonight.
then dumped all the looms into the empty frame. it is now heavier than ever. i am a bit worried about the move tomorrow. i think we may end up taking most (if not all) the wiring out (all punchdown blocks). i am not looking forward to redoing all that wiring!

we were thinking of that.
the current owner was pretty confident in moving it as you see in that last picture (thats how it showed up at it's current location). my plan is to go through the wiring diagrams and remove as many of the bundles from the punch blocks in the back as we can. i remember reading about a good amount of tie lines there that i'm sure we wont be using right away. it's such a rats nest though!

i'll report in later today when we get it here (my place).

stay tuned!

Well....


we did it. i still can't really believe it, but it's here and in one piece. it was hands down the heaviest thing i have ever dealt with.
we started this morning... 3 of us and the current owner. we organized the wiring looms and taped them up with gaff, then hung them up and over the armrest:
