Best rack for a Cwejman S1 ?

Author Best rack for a Cwejman S1 ?

Easy to co-locate with Euro-racks:

It's not a desktop solution, but this studio rack trolley was super cheap and has been fantastic!

Eventually I'll move the Sherman to the lower rack and add another 3U of euro and a patchbay or utility module!

I would check out the below. You can customize your colors, and choose wooden blank panels (minimum for the S1 is a 6-space). They're built very well and are perfect.

randomly came across this nice minimal solution. dunno how they accommodate the power and audio connections on the rear. Must be using 90 degree cables but it'll be a serious tight squeeze.


it does look tight. i put together a ghetto solution using an old rack tray for a mackie hard disk recorder, and used right angled power and audio cables etc... - it’s a tight fit, and mine looks to be further off the ground than the one above

wish you could still buy this rack:



Has anyone tried to manufacture/replicate these S1 stands??? Seems perfect, I don't ever remember Cwejman officially releasing these but I would immediately purchase if available. Surprised no one has offered an S1 standalone case with sempervirent 1U expander built into the case.

The image you mean? If that's your S1 can you maybe help other S1 owners providing details for similar S1 rack stands???

sorry i was being a dick. I was directly answering the OP question literally smile

My friend and I prototyped these desktop S1 stands (machined 7075 tempered aircraft aluminum) taking specific measurements of the S1, angle position, and considering 1U options (Sempervirent’s design). It's basically a 5U with 1U on the bottom. Because of the S1 angle only 1Us without top/bottom flanges will fit. You could also leave the 1U open. Also made for the S1 are custom brackets since the originals were not proper 5U lengths. There's a plan to fix the height of the 5U to rack a 1U (limited to length of the stands 6") to account for the S1 angle position sometime in the future.

Now you have my attention... Mr. Green

They look really awesome monads! Do you have any plans for making a cheaper version? You could make a mould from that prototype and churn them out quite easily with resin, etc.

Thanks!! Yes, we realized the costs were too high and are looking into cheaper alternatives to make more affordable (the reason for editing my posting removing sales information). You bring up a good point about making a mould. What contributed to some of the high cost previously was the machine time/labor required to achieve the final product.

Pretty sure this would be ok... thumbs up

I do like the 5U rack ears though, would definitely go for a pair of those.

monads
Yeah that would be OK hihi hihi hihi
Below is another very good option from Japan. The top/bottom blank panels can be removed making it a 5U! There's also an 6U (8U with panels removed) version!



Pro-Stand 3U
Pro-Stand 6U

That doesn’t work quite as well as I expected it would. They got cute with the hole spacing, so it isn’t as flexible as it could have been. I was thinking that I could have larger gear hang off the edges a bit and maybe squeeze an extra 1U in. Nope- instead of evenly spaced holes, they used a 2-1 pattern with an extra single hole at the top and bottom. Here’s a Cirklon rack ear in the lowest position that still lets you use both holes:



It is built like a brick shithouse, though. And there’s enough play in the brackets where the feet meet the legs that you could have it perfectly conform to a table far more warped than mine before tightening up the Allen bolts, and it’d feel rock solid. No shims under the corners of this monster..

Any updates on these stands? Would love to get me some if possible smile
