Adding to API's line of 50th Anniversary products, API's 862 50th Anniversary Edition Channel Strip combines the 550A Anniversary Edition EQ and the 312 Anniversary Edition Mic Pre into a single, 19" rackmount format. The 862 integrates the original 500 Series pcb's exactly as they were designed by API's founder, the legendary Saul Walker, and artfully merges them into a vintage-style, highly collectable and incredible sounding single 1U chassis.

Each 862 Anniversary Edition is individually serialized denoting its status as part of a limited run of only 50 units. Painstakingly assembled and carefully hand wired, the limited edition 862 a true work of art and a rare piece of recording history.
