Taking the NDO on tour and making recordings with portable gear was always going to be difficult.
The OBA 9’s with passive mixers could be exciting, since adjusting a rotary fader in a block of 4 would affect the sound levels from the other 3 !
In addition, the number of channels needed for the Band ensured that a room full of rotary faders and glowing valves was the norm.
Note the grey LS3/1 O/B speaker for monitoring, and Goodmans Maxim for talkback or prefade.?  (Blackpool Outside Broadcast)
