just wanted to say hello

Post by technosoul » Mon Mar 23, 2009 10:09 pm

Justed wanted to make a post so my account doesnt get cancelled, since finally I decided to open account.
I'm going to be buying a doepfer BS soon once AH gets their modules in stock. I guess I will be calling this wednesday to get the updates. I've sold a quite a bit of gear in the last month in order to make the modualr jump so it should be fun, hopefully enough fun to sustain a lifetime.

I have been "lurking" for sometime picking up information and seeing what you guys sell and trade and what not so..

cheers :guinness:

Do you mean like rails and power supplies?
I did all that stuff on my case but didn't keep good notes.
Some folks here will have that info if that's what you're looking for.

subrack parts, I saw the elby design one for 83 bucks, but to ship it its like another 50 bucks. It doesnt seem worth it. I'm trying to see if this Schroff company has any us distributors to build my own sub rack in a SKB case

Schroff US on the West Coast anyway is ICO Rally in CA. If you act fast you can get a pretty good deal on ebay (40 mins left!) item 280323698649

thanks for the listing. I'm actually looking for a 3U space. I notced a couple listings for that (3U), but I'm not quite sure if thats the right ones and what else I will need, considering I'm a newbie

Those are the right ones. The $99 one is a big pile of parts and an assembled rack to boot from the looks of it. More than 3U.

The $50 one is not the best deal but is exactly 3U. If you got this, you would need in addition:

2 threaded inserts from Schroff ($10)

1 Doepfer busboard ($45, or make your own)

1 Power supply (varies, $130 if you go Doepfer, alternatives for as low as $10)

Power cable, switch, fuse wires, screws, Torx screwdriver (altogether about $30)

I got a quote from Schroff US a couple of months ago. 6U rack was $103 and a 3U rack was $73.
