A new member of the family: It’s a Gorton!

I’ve been restoring WBS consoles for about 10 years now, and I think I’ve just taken the art of what I love doing to the next level. I have acquired THE Gorton P1-2 used at the WBS factory. It was used for their custom buttons, and their early one off panels.

This all began in 2009 while restoring a console. I was building a panel and wanted the exact engraving the factory did. http://wikigear.org/wiki/index.php?title=Image:APK_20091218-Antoinette_010.JPG This lead me to ask around and it turned out a past employee of WBS had the machine in his home shop. Fast forward 4 years and it’s got a new home in the Revolution Recording Custom Shop.

I do have some blank stock pender buttons, some ITT buttons and can get others.
