The smoother one is the new powder coated one I had FPE make. In the side by side system photo the right hand side has the FPE panel (the upper one).

EDIT: and I'm pretty sure the 'original' one I'm showing is either a Synth Tech version 2 or Bride Chamber end cap. The one Tubeampguy pictured on page 2 of this thread looks like a Synth Tech version 1 or maybe one of Larry's?

Mine will have more texture than both of those. I'll post a picture of it, but I have found it is the best for hiding blemishes and resisting fingers. It is quite similar in texture to the picture tubeampguy posted.

Ok, so I am told 5 weeks from my guy, which probably means 6... especially once they are retrieved and packaged, etc.

Here is a list I compiled from this thread. Please review it and let me know if the quantity is correct.

username pairs

Bivins 8 PAID
ppkstat 6 PAID
wnysynth 4 PAID
Dr Gris 4 PAID
Paradigm X 3 PAID
SelectivePressure 3
Tubeampguy 3 PAID
IvanC 6 PAID
eskimo99 16 PAID
rattnik 10 PAID
Ockegham 4 PAID
diophantine 6 PAID
coyoteous 4 PAID

75 pairs total

I plan on doing a run of 160, that leaves 5 extra pairs unaccounted for.

Please get the word out to people you know who might be interested. NOW is the time to step forward and get some, or plan for future expansion... If the quantities greatly increase, I will order extra.

If the quantities listed are correct, you can PayPal your pairs qty. x $16 +$6.65 domestic shipping to:

info@analogcraftsman.com

I would request that you send as a "friends/family," just because there is such a small margin on this thing anyway.

I will place the order this week once I verify all the details with my fabricator.

Yes! I borrowed those pictures from Larry's (RIP) website.
Tony, I'd pay the extra costs for a closer textured match (as best as you can) with the MOTM coating. The end caps are the final detail to my small MOTM system. Keeping the Synthtech MOTM continuity is important to me.
Thanks for giving us a option :tu: Some manufacturers don't :despair:

well, i try...

with all due respect, at this point no one else has requested that finish. It doesn't make sense to do two different finishes on a part like this. It is possible, but there is a high minimum charge which would make your parts cost $25-30 a piece...

I'm really sorry but there is just barely enough demand to make them at all.

I totally understand if you want to change your mind and not get any.

I will try and take a picture tomorrow of the two finishes (original MOTM panel and the powder coat) next to each other.

Since I have both MOTM original modules and MOTM format modules from other companies, there will be differences in finish from rack to rack. I'll be perfectly happy just to be able to close all my racks with end caps - and hopefully they will be as close as possible to my 4 pair of originals from Larry Hendry.

Sorry to jump this thread but I am able to offer standard 3/4" End Caps with slotted holes (similar to those shown by JLR) for AUD11.65 with a matt black anodized finish or AUD$18.40 with a mottled black powder-coat finish.
Availability will be 4 weeks.
Can also offer 1/2" End Caps if interested (same price)
