The MCI JH-400 Series of Recording Consoles encompasses an evolution of a number of products.
The original concept was licensed in the late 1960's from Dave Harrison - later the founder of Harrison Consoles - and was built as the JH-416, a 16 Track Recording Console. The JH-416 introduced the "In Line Monitoring" configuration that became the standard for many future console designs from both MCI and other manufacturers.
In 1974 the product was redesigned as the JH-428, a 24 Track Recording Console. Both A & B models ensued, and mainframes were available with up to 40 input channels. Both VU & Light Meter versions were produced.
The JH-400 Series was used to produce an astonishing number of hits throughout the 1970's.
