Configuration 2-manual
Notes From Greg Hamlin: “I still have the Her Majesty’s Theatre Light Console, which I operated from 1969 to 1978, on an almost nightly basis.
The last performance for the Console was Cause Célèbre, which I operated and also recorded the sounds of from the dimmer room for that last show.
Two hours later I was cutting through the two Greenfield flexible conduits, and removing the desk from the Dress circle box.” (personal email, 4/8/2009)
