The bewildering array of gear takes in anything from to EMI’s self-built stereo tape machines, a 1930s microphone, 1970s mixing board that travelled around the world recording classical performances, compressors that acted as “secret weapons” for making pop. There’s a 1905 piano kept purposefully out of tune, a 1950s Hammond organ used in many Beatles and Pink Floyd recordings, and a grand piano used by Emili Sande and Brian Wilson.
