Confession: I Love Ross!

Post by jnlkrt » Mon Feb 25, 2013 1:05 pm

Just got my new cases made by Ross. This man is an artist and I love him. Too bad we are both married. lol

The whole process was super friendly and funny and inspiring and the results are just mindblowing.

Here's a first (iPhone, sorry) pic of the bigger of two matching cases..

THANKS SO MUCH, ROSS!!!! :party:

Will follow up with better pics when it's filled up.

Lovely! :yay:

Any specific reason though to have this in two cases instead of a big one?

aluminium Sven, I used 80 grit on a random orbital sander, each pass took about a minute and it comes up a nice little pattern

sure.. :) these are two self-included instruments. obviously, they will be used together most of the time, but i can take them with me individually. plus, one single case of this size would be too hard to transport anyways. they will stay in my studio most of the time, but i want to be able to move them easily. and this is 164hp wide in total, dunno if there are even rails of that size. the main case is a very playablel synth based on a DPO / Rubicon voice and the Phonogene / Echophon combo. the smaller case has a voice consisting of the Res-4 and a TWF, but mainly is intended to be a feedback instrument to play tape delays, a couple of spring reverb tanks as well as exciters/contact mics on various materials.

damn, you are right.. guys, these are recycling cases. ross usually just tears apart whatever piece of useless junk he can find and makes it look like a modular case. i think he spends a lot of time in the local ikea dumpster, since he told me particle board funiture are his favorite source material. i had some doubts about that, but he told me he never really clicked with the solid wood thing.

You are quite an inspiration Ross, really nice stuff.
I like the metal sided cases too. On metal finishing, my father dabbles in stainless steel furniture since his retirement, and he has one of these:

Not sure if you can use the exact same thing on aluminium, but this would give you the straight brushed finish rather than swirly.
