one of the easiest ways might be to remove the end cheek screws and replace them with longer ones so you can slap a set of ruler sized metal or plastic planks of whatever might look and fit well, to attach them without any other holes or alterations.

Hey!

I currently own a powered MN skiff... but I'd like to make my setup more compact, with smaller modules and all. As you know, I am limited to 10 modules maximum with this skiff.

My question being: is it ok to just remove the power board and go for a 4ms power row for example? If anyone did that, I'd be curious to know your setup.

I might as well sell it but I'd rather not.

There's no need to do that. You can simply plug a flying bus cable into one of the sockets and create 7 more. Go from 10 to 16 headers for a $12 investment.

i did it, i bought in diy shop a very thin aluminium plate, i think less than 1mm, cut 2 small rectangle out of it and screw in place under the side panels.

even if the size of theese 2 piece is small the case is super sturdy!
between the 2 case longer side i put some protection tape just to avoid scratches.

I always wondered whether that would work. Could I, in theory, "use up" all the power via a single connector of the bus board? A tiptop flying bus board would also suffice then, I guess?

If I'm trolling around on page 5 of a 2 year old thread, I suppose it's time to get a little tugboat to accompany my main vessel. I've been thinking of taking advantage of all the Phonogenes for sale and making a micro-sound skiff. Thanks for all the tips and suggestions.

yurp. this thread was helpful to read before i bought one.

question - mines seems like 104.9hp. when at 102 i can JUST about get that last 3hp module in. if i unscrewed one of the ends, added SLIGHTLY MORE MODULE THAN RECOMMENDED, then tightened down end would that cause..... problems?

been there, done that...

no problem at all, just be careful because the internal screw thread gets worn quite easily...

you should put a thin washer or thin scrap of metal to act as a washer on the end caps so you can at least have them tightened to not fall out, also if you tighten the end caps without a spacer in there you may damage a module or face plate by forcing them all into the 104.9HP and that's no fun to smash modules

Need your help wigglers! Received my powered skiff yesterday but the AC adapter included (I mean the socket ) is not valid to plug it into an European wall plug.

Image

Anyone use this skiff outside US? Do I need just this adapter? Should I take notice to any power or voltage from the adapter?

Thanks guys !!! :miley:

Has anyone tried using the Kosmo stand with this case?
http://cremacaffedesign.com/project/kosmo/

I tried it with my Spike stand, but it was pretty wobbly. The skiff is on the list of compatible devices, but I'm afraid it will be too unstable while patching cables on either side of the case.

Yes, I asked them to recommend me one of their stands for the MN skiff a while ago and they recommended me 2 Spike stands, iirc.

Glad I asked. Kosmo and Spike are the same width, so they probably mean for you to put both Kosmos next to each other. I don't love that idea.

Made this stand for a few bucks.

Works like a charm.

I should have made them earlier.

Anyone figure out a solid way to transport these skiffs patched up? I really like the slim look, but without a lid i'm not too keen on just using a gig bag. I've been looking around and hard cases of the right size are few and far between

Does anyone know of anybody or company making and selling skifs this shallow in the UK? doesn't need to be that shallow but just smaller than the Make Noise one's you can buy

Just looking for a small skiff 60-84hp which takes up as little room as possible

No good solutions? I was wondering about retro fitting a violin case or shotgun case to fit the skiff in sideways(allowing room for pre-patch). Like one of these...




Seems like it would be better protection than the theremin case which looks more like a bag. Shame no one makes a case like these with just the skiff rectangle built out in the middle rather than a violin shape. The extra $300 for an Elite skiff seems steep when I like the look of the MN skiff, but then again it may be worth it if it relieves the travel-protection headache. Difficult decision there...

How about a saxophone case?
