stands for doepfer 6u suitcases ?

Post by doepferiano » Wed Nov 11, 2009 9:53 am

Hello wigglers,

what is the best way to have 2 suitcases one on top of the other, in a slanted way (a la Buchla...) ?

:hmm:

thanks
antonio

Maybe you could use a guitar stand for the more vertically angled 'top' one,
and put the other 'horizontal' one in front on its back
(propped up with something random in back if you want more angle).

Do you want something tabletop or floorstanding?

For floorstanding, how about this: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Autolocator/

It does a great job holding 1 doepfer case, and can handle enough weight that I usually have it supporting heavy Otari reel-to-reel. You'd probably have to improvise a back support to deal with the extra height of a 2nd case, but it can definitely handle with width and weight. (or you could just get two stands, and set one taller and steeper behind the other.)

Cut down A-frame stands work well. You've got to modify the brackets a little bit.

Here's a thread with a picture.

I'd like more a table top situation

yes this is closer to what I have in mind


I know the the easiest would be a table top "L" configuration ...
(maximizing teh use of cable lenght too!)

The type of Guitar stands that don't use a neck holder work great as table top stands for the Doepfer portable cases. And they are tpically around $20 and go on sale often. They look like this:

Those work great for tables but if you need some for free standing a cheaper alternative than the mixer stand shown earlier are guitar amp stands like this:

The $14 one on that page would work on a table too but check the widths first. Most of them are for amps wider than the ~18" of the Doepfer cases.

Will that go almost totally vertical?

Will it lower enough to use sitting in a chair?

That might be perfect for a Serge S-Case.
