I've been working on a case design similar to this myself. It's been my thought since before I even purchased the PCB/Panel set and why I didn't order the case.

I love this idea. How much would something like this case cost?

The customer is paying me $300 for this option. Tolerances are tight on the inside, and the following limitations are imposed:
1. Type 1 or Blue reverb
2. No room for linear supply, must use Muratas

However:
A. Panel is reversible; there is enough cable in the case to flip it around and play upright.
B. Very light weight, the bottom is 3/16" masonite, chalkboard finished. Bottom comes off for service.
C. Two extra panel mounting screws added, top and bottom center. Mounting screws (4-40) go into brass threaded inserts, so no worries about stripped screw holes.
D. All the bells and whistles (sync, shapers, sub oscillator, range selectors on EGs, gate booster).

HAH! Me too :hyper:

I thought I'd surely be the only weirdo who'd ever want such a thing.

I used the case that came w the kit though because I'm cheap

I've got about a dozen variations in Fusion 360... some wood, some sheet metal. My latest variation on a theme is here: http://a360.co/2uykzfg

Ultimately it's waiting for me to finish building my TTSH to get proper measurements for it to fit. Oddly, I think I'm slow on finishing the TTSH because I don't have a case to put it in.

Thanks, I really appreciate that but it's a long long way from reality. I think it's pretty cool that a few people are looking at laying their TTSH down. It seems like a more natural position to me. With a mostly vertical case, it feels like my arms tire more easily.
