Hey Dan,

Welcome to the White Market my friend!  :)

I am very happy to see you handling high quality cases and enclosures. I think there has been a need around Prodigy for something like this...especially for us US based folks!  ;D

Best of luck on your new venture.

I still see a VP4.312 in our near future... 8)

Cheers, Jeff

Post by: dandeurloo on November 26, 2010, 11:43:26 PM
Randyman.. These are very close.  All the design and protos are done.  Just need to organize who wants what.  So, if you want one I will confirm you for one!  I will be stocking a number of things as well.   

Thanks for the comment about the masking.  I have put a ton of effort into designing these so they are high quality and easy to use!  Its been a fun project and I hope they are helpful to you guys.

Jeff, Thanks!  Guys like you have done such an excellent job of offering a great product that serves the communtiy.  Hopefully I can contrubite even a fraction as much as you and others have.

BTW, I love the idea of a VP4.312!

Ian and Nick, thanks as well.  Ian, I'm often in Nashville as well working on records!  Just got back before thanksgiving from there again.  Would love to meet ya sometime.

I'll take one case for a stereo LA3a. (SA-3A)

Ok, I'll put up a list of confirmed orders soon.  A number of you guys have emailed me as well so feel free to do that also.


Side note:
I've tested a number of the Hairball's meters in the cases and they fit and look great!  Mike sure has some great meters.  I will be making most all of the cases to go with his meters.  Seems to be the best solution for quality, price and easy.

Post by: dandeurloo on December 02, 2010, 10:07:40 PM
Well, Mike and I have been working on a stereo case for the last few days!  That is the only case I will be handling for his 1176 kits.  If you are looking for mono 1176's his cases are perfect.  I will be getting my protos in for the Stereo Fet with the next run of cases so we are much closer then we had been!  Maybe upload a PDF to my website soon of it.

do i hear a midwest meeting?  check's inked and stamped btw!

if anybody's considering an order from dan, let me encourage you in the utmost.  having never spoken to him previously, in the past couple weeks we've talked cases and diy for at least three solid hours since.  i can say from what i have in the works that he's quick on his feet with layout for custom designs, and has been nothing but helpful with insights and suggestions in how to get the best final product.  from what he's told me, there are some great things coming down the pipe.  (proof positive with the dual 1176's!)

Hey Guys, small update so you know whats going on. 

1. Boxes and shipping supplies are ordered.

2. Chassis are being machined as I type.  Most of the sides and back panels are completed.  Just have tops and bottoms and then faceplates.

So things are moving along.  From here it will be to the powder coat guys and then shipping for those who ordered basic's and anyone who ordered a custom faceplate it will be on to a few more steps.  I just wanted to keep you guys in the know!

Thanks guys.

I ordered some stuff for stock as well so if you guys didn't confirm you may still be able to get a few cases!

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on December 20, 2010, 10:21:02 AM
Yes, I do.  Just got a call this morning, the chassis are all powder coated.  I need to get them from the shop which is a few hours out of town.  So, I need to grab those.  I just got to do it around the snow storms that are coming in!

The faceplates are almost done being cut out and should go to the powder coat guys tomorrow.  Then depending on if guys ordered custom cases (la 2a, pultec) for a specific project they have a another step with the silkscreeners.

But I am hoping to get some of these packaged up and shipped to you guys who just ordered chassis! 

So, overall things are moving along nicely.  Just need to wait for a few more things and snow.

Any ETA on the 2-1176 Front Panels & Chassis?  I'll snap one up ASAP :)  Do you have a sneak peak of the front panel layout?  I'm assuming there is a spot for a Stereo Link switch somewhere?

Thanks  8)
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on December 21, 2010, 09:59:48 PM
Hey guys, I got chassis back from powder coat today and I am trying to pack up and ship out to who I can before the holiday (which starts for me tomorrow night, I have to leave town before another snow storm comes thursday).   The face plates are a few days behind the chassis so anyone who ordered those will be after the holidays.  And then anyone who ordered custom cases like La 2A's or Pultecs will be a little longer because those will need time for silk screening. 

Overall, very good progress and some of you will have your cases very soon.  Others it will still be a little longer.

I also, ordered a few extra cases to try and start stocking some stuff.  I know I have a few extra 2U stereo Basic that will work great with Ruckus's LA 3A and things like that.  Hit me up if you want any.  Those could go out ASAP.

Randy, hit me up with an email and I can send you a pdf of what the proto we are working off of looks like.  Once we get the protos to where Hairball and I like them we will put them up for sale!

Thanks guys.

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Randyman... on January 04, 2011, 11:16:35 PM
Any 2011 updates on the 2-1176 front panel & chassis?  I should have my PCB's really soon and I already have everything else I need (minus the case).

What are the chances of adding an A/B input switch opening below the meter with "INPUT A/B" labeling (one per side) and pre-punching another set of XLR holes in the rear?  I'm guessing that would be a custom job - so I'll likely handle that on my end if it would hold up production further.  But if it is possible with minimal delay - then let me know what's possible.  I'm not too picky - just want it to look better than what I could to with a hand-drill and a bit, and a Casio label maker  ;D

Thanks!   8)
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on January 06, 2011, 03:44:07 PM
Hey Guys, a little up date.  

A number of cases have gone out!


I just got off the phone with my silkscreen company and they got the prints back to make the screens and they are hoping to have them done and ready for pick up tuesday.  They are finishing an order ahead of me that is 10,000 pieces.  Wow, that's a lot of ink.

Anyway, so LA 2A's and Pultecs are getting closer for you guys who ordered them.

I am also taking orders for the next run already.  So if you have anything you want to get in on that run let me know.  I do have a number of the basic cases in stock and ready to go for you guys if you need any of them.

Randyman, I'll email ya.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Randyman... on January 06, 2011, 03:53:38 PM
EDIT - Just saw your edit - Thanks!

Any response to my above post?  I'd like to get an additional hole below the meters (one hole below each meter) on your 2-1176 front panel - with an "Input A/B" or "Mic Input / DAW Input" silkscreening on it for use with a rotary 2x1 input selector switch (30 degrees between positions / 15 degrees each side from 12 O'Clock).  If this is either not possible, or if it would further delay the 2-1176 getting to me then I'll use a hand drill and a Casio Label Maker and DIY these extra holes myself :D

Any word on when I can pay for the 2-1176 pre-order?  Any ETA on the basic 2-1176 units w/o the mod I'm requesting?

Thanks!   8)

Post by: yosh on January 12, 2011, 09:28:07 PM
I ordered one of the LA 2A cases and I'm wondering about the meter cutout dimensions. I just received the hairball audio meter recommended on the LA 2A page of your website, but now that I'm looking at it, I think that it looks smaller than the cutout in the image of the front panel on the same page. According to the hairball audio website the meter recommended on your page takes a cutout of 24mm high by 47mm wide. Is that correct?

Thanks!

Cool, thanks. My eyes deceived me, as they do sometimes.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on January 13, 2011, 09:34:31 AM
Yosh, correction I was wrong.  You need the 8037 which is the larger VU.  I had the 1176 on my mind which uses the smaller 8027.  Hairball set me straight! 

I'll correct it on my website as well.

Sorry about that.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: yosh on January 15, 2011, 12:28:12 AM
Cool, that's alright, Mike at Hairball was very cool about doing the exchange. What's the ETA on the LA 2A cases?
Title: Re: Collective Cases

Hey Dan any pics of the pultec yet?
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on January 15, 2011, 04:18:56 PM
I just sent the first rounders of Pultec 3U's out.  I have another round in the works already.  I will take pics of those.  I do have a custom 2U pultec I still haven't sent out because of a custom Screen being made for it.  Hopefully that will be soon as well.  

Yosh, ETA is soon.  The Screener is working on the LA 2A's this weekend hopefully.  So, that is it.  I will let you know.


OVERALL UPDATES:
Since it is was first round and the Holidays I wasn't sure about time lines.  I'm already starting the second run and I am trying to stock a few so I can cut time line down on stock cases.  Plus minor tweaks along the way.  Just heads up.  Overall I am very pleased with everything.  

Thanks everyone for your support.  Please feel free to contact me by email if any of you have custom needs or comments.


These cases will be available in the near future.


Stereo Fet: Dual 1176 for Hairball kits!  
DBX 160 VU: Abe has the proto and said everything fit great.  Now I just need to get the sikscreener on it.  I have waited on getting that to him because he has been so overloaded as well.  I will start him in on it as soon as we finish the current cases.
Fairchild 670: This will be massive!  It will work with Drip's boards or any other 670 boards.
Dual LA 2a: This one is really close!
Redd47: This one is really close as well!  It will work with a home build or the Drip Board.

I also, have a few other little gems in the works.  And I will announce those in a little bit.  So may great projects lately here on prodigy its hard to keep up.  If anyone has any other suggestions I'm open to doing cases for them even in small runs of like 5 or so.


Thanks again guys!

What is optional?  The faceplate?  Or the aluminum material?  ??

The faceplate are optional. No sense in paying for one if you don't need it.  I know a lot of guys offer products with face plates or they have face plates already.


I can do a custom face plate for you if you need it.  Usually at a small or no charge at all fee depending on how many you need.  Also, if you get a blank face plate i can have it finished "Black Powder coat"  to match the chassis or "Raw" Aluminum.  Just depends on how you'd like it to look.

Let me know if yo have any more questions.  I'd love to help.


3nity:  I sent you a pm.

Here is something else I have been working on.

I also have more cases to come.  Hopefully I can get some pdf of them online soon or get some photos from guys I have sent cases to already.

Hey Dan going to offer any cases future wise for igor mastering sontec?
Also does the 2la2a fit the drip boards?
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on January 23, 2011, 02:24:06 PM
Earl, I am sure I will get to some of Igor fine projects.  The TG and Sontecs are calling out to me. 

So far I have been doing the project people have wanted to order from me right away.  I do have plans to hopefully offer cases for as many projects are needed and wanted.  So the long and short is YES.  If you want one email me and we can go from there.  That is how most of these have been started!

The Dual LA 2A could possibly fit Drips boards.  His are really big PCB's so it would take a little extra work on your end but could be possible I would think.  You would maybe want to just make sure it was the 11" deep chassis for some extra wiggle room.  You would have to stack them some how.  Maybe ask Greg if he has any ideas.  Other wise Volker has a DUAL LA 2A board that I have been designing the case for that a number of guys here on the forum have done and love.  Both are great options. 

I personally have built a few Drips LA 2A and love them and now want to build one of Volker's boards!

Sorry, the chassis are made of steel.  The face plates are made of Aluminum.  I'm sure I could have some made of all aluminum for you but it would cost more because of the price of the material.

Let me know if I can help you at all.

I took more pics but not of the case sorry, then I pulled it all apart again as this was a mock up. I just noticed the pic is blury too.

I must say I'm pretty happy with the case, having the holes done for me makes my life much easier and it is nice n sturdy. I just wish I didn't have to pay so much for freight...

Front panel was by FPE - first time I ordered from them. I highly recommend them also.
I just got this compressor calibrated and into my system so I don't have much experience with it yet. I really liked it in a couple quick tries yesterday. Seemed very transparent and easy to set up. Sounded great on a full mix bus on the first try. Subtle, for instance much less noticeable than my neve 33609 on acoustic guitar, but on the full mix, seemed to just bring everything together and impart a warmth to the sound.

Been emailing you regarding a stereo 1176 case but emails keep bouncing back.
How far off are we with these?
Title: Re: Collective Cases

Hey David it is strange that the emails are bouncing.  I'll hit you back with another email.  Maybe that will help.

Update:
I just dropped off over 30 assorted face plates to the silk screener so I should have a few extra 1176 now that they have been approved by Hairball.  So, we may be a day or 2 a way from them.  Otherwise I can start taking pre orderes for them now as well.

Got my case on Saturday. Really nice! Really really nice! I ordered the basic stereo 1U with a raw aluminum panel with plans to paint the bejeezus out of front, but after I saw how rad it looked, I am leaving it bare. The panel is also very thick and strong. The chassis is sturdy as all get out, and the cutouts on the back are dead on. Love the case Dan!

I am mounting a couple of 312's in it, and will post a pic when its all done. I have the front panel drilled already (a little butchered), so it shouldn't be long.

By the way Dan, nice looking panels above!

Edit: Pictures!

Pacemaker, I am currently waiting on the silk screener to finish the face plates.  He has a large number of face plates from me so I can't wait for them to get done.  Hopefully no more then another week or so.  It depends on the runs in front of me.  He usually does really large product runs.

I do have chassis finished and everything is back from powder coat so we are in the final stages of this batch!

MicDaddy, what trim pot will you be using?  Basically I need to know the hole size?

To me it makes sense to have a trim pot as well.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: MicDaddy on March 31, 2011, 02:23:11 PM
.... from other thread .... "..Dan others have omitted the trim-pot from their builds and Perusha is the only chassis I can find currently to support the trim.

Trim-pot is a must for the pres I'm building FWIW"


this is the trimmer SR1200 used  http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?WT.z_header=search_go&lang=en&site=us&keywords=51AAD-B28-D15L-ND&x=15&y=15

Although I'd be game for a sonically equal yet less expensive alternative, perhaps let some others chime in and go from there. 

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Neily on March 31, 2011, 05:06:59 PM
I've let Dan know what I'd like on this case but I figure I'd post it here and see what everyone thinks


Front panel holes for:
48v
(and a hole for an LED for when 48v is engaged)
pad
phase
A hole for trim is cool with me as well but I don't require it

Other than that I'm easy, any color panel is fine with me.

As for the back of the case I'd like 5 XLR holes and that is all.  (4 for io and one for external power)
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: MicDaddy on March 31, 2011, 07:17:42 PM
Color makes no difference to me, I'd be open to any color/pad print.  Other than that 5 XLR on the back for I/O & power as Nelly laid out, looks good.


Have it say 1290, not 1073?

Any thoughts on a 4x Chassis similar to some in the EZ1290 thread? 

Perusha already has the 2x and it just seems a waste for anyone building more than 2x pres..

Rack real estate is hard to come by over here.

I'm totally with Ben on this one... I'd love a 4 channel 2u for the EZ1290. When it comes to pre amps, the more the merrier. Also, a case perfectly fits 4.

Something like this one would be amazing for me...

Post by: dandeurloo on March 31, 2011, 09:11:29 PM
since I don't have any of these boards I need to know how much room from the center of the Gain pot to the edge of the board.  That way I can see how to center them.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: MicDaddy on March 31, 2011, 09:32:18 PM
Hey Dan not sure if this helps, but here goes.  The switch looks centered on the end to the right of the photo, but I didn't measure with calipers so don't quote me on that just yet.

I'm thinking if the gain switches are lined up similar to those photos should be ok, somebody verify please.


Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Citrus Hill on March 31, 2011, 09:56:41 PM
I like the 1290 cases in the pic above and would be looking to buy two if I can scrape up some more cash.  My preference would be the one with the pad, phantom, and phase switches below the gain knob.  I worked with a Pre one that had the switches on top and I accidentally hit the pad during gain adjustment.  No big deal during mic check, but they seem more out of the way below the gain to me.

On a side note for Dan, is it possible to get custom silkscreen and paint colors on your panels? 

I'm just starting my DIY gear and I'm thinking of coloring all of the comps a dark maroon, the pre's the dark n*ve  blue, and the eq's a dark olive green.  The graphics and knobs would all vary from piece to piece.  What do you all think?
Thanks,
Rob
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on April 01, 2011, 10:46:26 AM
i can do custom screens and paint but its not cheap.  it would be easily another 200 per design because I get charged 100 for a paint change and 100 for new screens.  And that doesn't include design and layout time.  So if you did more then one case it may be worth it because that gets offset by quantity. PM me if you have any more specifics.

 
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on April 01, 2011, 11:21:29 AM
well from the looks of the boards you will need 6 inches side to side.  So it doesn't look like any of the 4 channel layouts will work unless you use leads to wire the gain switch.  I'm guessing that is not acceptable.  I might be able to stager them?  So channel one is lower and channel 2 is higher, channel 3 is lower and channel 4 is higher.  Make sense.  If that is cool I could give it a shot but I'm not 100% how you guys will mount the boards to the chassis and what height the Standoff's will need to be.

I think someone who has the boards and parts should maybe PM so I can get some more details to try and work this out for you guys.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Neily on April 01, 2011, 03:37:56 PM
The front of the boards look likey the are  3.75"  So 4 boards would only take up 15" across the front so there would be no need to wire the switches with leads and all 4 boards can be level. The boards are just over 6" but thats from front to back.


-Neil
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on April 01, 2011, 04:26:51 PM
Good eye, I was thinking it was 4.75.

let me dig into this more and see if I can get them to work.  It means I have roughly 2" from the inside of each case.  So let me tweak it a little.

I would also be interested in a 4x EZ1290 if it looks like it's a possibility.  I would especially be interested if the holes for the switches were drilled so that they would be compatible with the JLM Go Between which seem to be a popular pairing with the EZ1290 boards.

Post by: dandeurloo on April 09, 2011, 06:40:51 PM
working on the trim version now.


I need to know if I put a trim pot 2" off from the center of the gain switch will it fit?  Or will it hit something on the board?  I don't have this project so I can't make measurements.  So if someone would let me know how close I can get the trim pot that would be very helpful.

Post by: dandeurloo on April 09, 2011, 07:21:16 PM
Option "B" with the trim.  I think this should work.  The trim pot should fit under the Main Preamp board and between the JLM.  We should also have a little room between channels.

Would any of you guys with the pres be willing to print out a pdf of the faceplate 100% and test fit them with a paper or cardboard template and confirm that you guys will have enough room to fit everything properly on the inside.  If so let me know and I can send you the pdf.

(http://dandeurloo.com//collectivecases/PDF/Neze-1290-4_trim.jpg)


I will probably only offer one version of these for now as it seems most everyone wants a 4 channel with JLM go between and trim. 

The question after this is do you guys want to have a IEC on the back panel or do you want a XLR for external PSU?

Post by: kml23956 on April 09, 2011, 07:34:10 PM
option B
Title: Re: Collective Cases

No iec. 9 xlrs gets my vote
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: MicDaddy on April 10, 2011, 10:44:54 AM
 :o

Dan, example B looks stellar!

No IEC,

9 XLRs for I/O + PSU

What is the depth for the chassis?  Want to be sure we can fit all 4x VTB9045 & 4x VTB9049 comfortably.

edit db should be dB    ;)

Very nice!!! Another vote for XLR, i think everyone is gonna do external PSU.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: blunderfonics on April 10, 2011, 08:19:36 PM
Very nice Dan.  The only issue I see with this design is that putting the gain switch that high on the face will require very long standoffs to support the EZ1290 card.  It might be better to have the gain switch at the bottom and the go between floating above as it is very small.  This is obviously not a huge issue, just a consideration.

I'd vote for 9 xlr's as well.

Thanks!

Ok, guys thanks!  Seems like the 9 XLR's is the way to go with this project! 

If anyone else who has their boards built wants to confirm things fit cool.. Otherwise once I hear back of fit I will start these.

Do you guys want a Star Ground on the back panel?
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Neily on April 11, 2011, 07:01:08 PM
Do you guys want a Star Ground on the back panel?


There's no use for a star ground if there's 9 xlr with no iec I believe. Someone correct me if I'm wrong (I'm new) but I believe Ground will be in the seperate power supply?



This is gonna be awesome! I'm stoked to see what this turns out to be like!

Looks really good, ensure there is enough space so the the on board heat sink doesn't short against the top of the case.

EZ 1290's have been approved finally!


Now to finish up the 3nity 312's.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on April 15, 2011, 11:16:43 AM
Here is he layout.  I'm leaning toward aluminum faceplate with black silk screen or powder coated blue with white ink.  Thoughts?

(http://dandeurloo.com//collectivecases/images/1U-312-faceplate.jpg)


Also, do you guys want these 312 cases to be 9" (external PSU) or 11" (with internal PSU)?
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: MicDaddy on April 15, 2011, 12:56:04 PM
Regarding the 312, I like the internal psu that 3nity posted up so I'm in for 11"   (I'm gonna need a pair)  at risk of looking foolish why is it called the "Access"?

Dan that layout looks sick, I might need some chicken soup  ;D

Excited to hear the Neze chassis is good to go  (also need a pair)

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on April 15, 2011, 03:12:55 PM
I sent a panel from my little Neve console off today to get the paint matched!  So the EZ1290's will be dead on to that color which is NEVE!

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Randyman... on April 17, 2011, 09:36:57 PM
For the 1RU Access 312 - I'd also say 11" or 12" deep for use with the internal PSU.  8x XLR's and an IEC w/star ground.  At least that's my plan :)

I'm not picky on color, but brushed aluminum (matte silver) with black silkscreen does sound sexy (like the saul walker 550's!).  Blue/White sounds good, too, but I'd probably go Red/Black to really draw attention to itself  ;D ...

I'm absolutely in for (1) Access 312 chassis/front as specified above (I think I already mentioned "I'm in" in a previous post???)

Looking good, Dan!  8)

My vote goes for:

I vote that too! Anything is cool with me though.

I would also like the larger case for the internal power supply (so 8 xlr, IEC and starground on the back for this one)
Title: Re: Collective Cases

Post by: dandeurloo on April 18, 2011, 04:04:41 PM
yeah the 312 cases will be 11" deep, 8 xlr's, IEC and ground hole.  The front panel will be aluminum with black silk screening.  Should be super cool.

Hey guys, just incase I don't get back to guys as fast as normal this week.  I am in a studio producing a band so I have limited access to email.  But I am getting a large number of my chassis back from paint soon.  Maybe today. 

Also, still working on matching the paint for the Ez faceplates but we should be close.  I sent off one of my covers from my 70's Neve console to match it so we have a real neve color for them.

I will let ya guys know through email when I am shipping you orders.

Also, I will probably start taking orders for the 312-4 cases by 3nity and the Ez cases soon.

I must tell you that your camera stinks.  The pictures here and on your website don't do the cases justice.  They look fantastic.  I just received two redd47, one 160, and all but the faceplate of the Neve 1290.  Great job my man.

I don't know the fees until they are packed and weighed. They are always very close to the pound so I can't say until it is weighed.  The USPS said if it is 1 oz over then I have to pay for the whole pound so to be safe I wait until they are all packed and ready to go.

Post by: Neily on June 15, 2011, 11:35:50 AM
Hey Dan, just a heads up...

Canada Post employees are officially locked out... So you might want to use Fed Ex to quote Canadian customers.

I would avoid UPS as they overcharge huge on brokerage\duty. For example I bought a $60 2u rack case about 2 weeks ago, and paid $40 on brokerage\duty. Throw the shipping on there and I paid almost double... It was awful.



Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Ptownkid on June 15, 2011, 11:48:53 AM
A lot of the time, it's best to use a UPS service that has brokerage included...
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Biasrocks on June 15, 2011, 04:14:49 PM
UPS = a joke.

Fed-ex is now pulling similar stunts.

In most cases, these items are duty free and don't require any brokerage.

They're simply charging you for the luxury of collecting sales tax for the government.

Mark
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on June 15, 2011, 04:44:17 PM
I agree.  I have had nothing but problems with both of them.  I have had the best luck with almost zero issues using USPS and Canada Post.  Well I'll figure out a way to get them to you guys. 

Is the government just shutting down postal service?  Back in the 80's here in the states Reagen was smart enough to figure out a way to keep air traffic going when their union went on strike.  It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: Neily on June 15, 2011, 05:06:16 PM
Basically the union made a few major (and not so major) postal facilities strike (rotating I believe)

This morning Canada post just said screw them and did a lockout.

Canada post is actually a great company, it's the unions who sucks.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on June 15, 2011, 08:41:30 PM
Unions are usually the problem.  I use to work on the rail road and was in their union.  I honestly quit partly because of the unions.  They promote laziness and worthless people could never be fired or disciplined.  Decades ago unions had a purpose but now if you work hard then you shouldn't need a union.  My wife is a teacher and she noticed the same thing with the teacher unions here.  I think once the unions cause companies to go bankrupt they will have done themselves in once and for all.  The WI teachers unions showed everyone who they are really care about a few months ago.  

But then again this site is about gear not politics and work ethic.  haha  Back to the stuff we need and love.

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: kml23956 on June 21, 2011, 09:22:41 PM
I received mine and I am unhappy.   Naming it EZ1290 would have been ok, N1290 also ok. But you might have well have name it Cheeze1290.  I was so unhappy about the Neze and thought that the original pictures were a joke.  I was so unhappy that I didn't even notice the paint bubbles and pits until now.
Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: dandeurloo on June 21, 2011, 10:04:42 PM
Sorry you're unhappy.   I have had a number of requests to add other manufacturers' company names and logos to cases that are inspired by older versions of their products, but I have no interest in doing that.  It's not worth it to me to bring on any sort of legal problems over a few cases.  That is why they get named something different.  Sorry that bums you out.  I have a number of my cases in my studio and have never had anyone comment on them not having a real logo or company name on them; everyone just loves how they sound and look.  (Honestly most people prefer both the sound and look.)

As far as the paint goes, my painter told me that different powdercoat colors respond differently to the aluminum.  (Oxygen releases from the aluminum and causes the small pits.) It seems like the vintage Neve color that I had matched for these products doesn't lay as flat.  Overall, it seems like a small compromise to get the vintage look and color that everyone wanted at an affordable price.

 
Again, sorry you are unhappy.  Hopefully this doesn't tarnish your experience with the gear.  I'm sure many great tracks will be recorded with these pres and cases by you and everyone else!  If you'd like to send it back to me, I'd be happy to have it re-powdercoated in black and re-silkscreened.

I don't need Neve on the front panel.  I said that EZ1290 or 1290 EZ or anything would have been fine I just didn't want Cheeze.  Your other panels and cases that I purchased were awesome. This one sucks and I understand that you can't get them right all of the time I certainly don't.  But to not offer to do anything in your original email response back to me and then just commenting about how great they sound was not cool. At least here you did offer to do something.

I am willing to try again with the G-Pultecs if you are when and if they are available because I hate doing the cases and I am glad that someone else does not seem to mind doing it.  I myself, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate it.

It looks like I will sanding and refinishing this myself because I have nothing better to do. I don't need to do any recording or anything obviously. At least the holes are pre-drilled.  Where is my Testors color chart?  I am thinking yellow.  I have nothing in yellow.   :)

Not sure myself, I just picked up what was on the BOM but I'm seeing now that the board is going to have to be mounted upside down, or the heatsink fins are all going to need to be almost parallel with the board to clear the top of the case without making contact.  I suppose it has a lot to do with which heatsink you use, I've seen some pretty nifty low profile ones but I used standard looking ones that sit pretty tall.


EDIT:  I stand corrected, everything fits like a glove.  I can't find my tape or caliper sorry Neily, I can check in the morning.  Just dry fit one of the grahill switches and measure from there. 

These are going to look Very clean, thanks again Dan!   8)

Neily,  the standoffs I purchased were taken from the BOM and they are about ~1/2" or so too short.  http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=4822virtualkey53400000virtualkey534-4822

How are you planning the layout for the Iron?  I'm thinking of putting the input under the pcb somewhere and the output near the rear of the board closer to the XLR..  these should look very clean when finally assembled, the cases look amazing!

Neily, it's looking like ~2" give or take...

Hey Dan,

Are you going to be working on cases for Colin EZ1073? I'm in for a few and wondering what to do about cases/front panels etc? I think 1U is best as some will only built a single channel, I'd prob be in for at least 6 to 8 cases and just trying to work out timelines.

Cheers

;D you're more than welcome to come and make those adjustments for me, but thanks for the heads up.

The way I have them seemed to make sense to me at the time...  why do you put them on the inside?  In other applications I put the lock washer next to the nut.

edit:   :o  well, I was perfectly happy with them the way they are, though now I am realizing it is quite ugly compared to how I think they will look with the washers on the inside.    :'( really don't want to have to dig back in.....  thanks again for the good eye shabtek

Functionally, the lock washers can go anywhere. Aesthetically, they go on the inside. Sometimes the switches look better with the lock washer on the outside. It's a builder's call. DW.

Actually give us a little more time on the PRR's.  Abe is finishing his builds in it first to make sure its all good.  The one thing he was considering is changing the meter.  So give us a little bit more time on that one. I think he is pretty slammed building PYE's and working the PRR-176 up.

I think so.  I actually haven't built one yet.  I still plan on finding time to build a pair. But I would think having the Power transformer outside would be best.

Title: Re: Collective Cases
Post by: MicDaddy on November 18, 2011, 04:11:01 PM
FWIW I had the psu transformer on the outside (G-Pultec), then moved it inside.  I experienced only a very slight rise in the noise floor.  It looks better inside but sounds (only very slightly) quieter outside  8)  I did not take much time with orientating it for a 'best scenario' layout, but I find that it's totally acceptable as it is now.



12RU worth of Dan's cases in my racks here.

Hey guys I just wanted to bump this to let you all know I now have 5.5" deep cases in 2U and 3U cases.  For all those tube projects. I am also now starting on 14" deep cases.

I will also be soon releasing Vintage type PSU chassis for tube mics and pres.  They can also be used for external PSU's in general.  I have 3 different standard hole cuts out for them so you can uses them in a number of different ways.  This is another project that I needed so I figured I might as well do at least a batch of them and get them out to you guys as well.  I should hopefully have pics in a week or two of them.  They are almost ready to go to paint.

Hey Dan,
I'm almost done with a tube preamp using your 5.5" deep cases. Really nice cases!
For the next run of them, would it be possible to align the in / out xlr punches vertically to free up a little more space on the back panel? With transformers and tubes the more room the better.
Do you have the deep 1U stereo cases in stock? I need a pair.

the tube mic psu cases look great!  i know i'll be getting one.  will you silk screening the part holes (eg. mic in, mic out, pattern, etc)? i guess the pattern isn't always omni, fig.8 and cardiod (as in the U47) though, but the rest of the parts are pretty standard and would be nice to have them screened.  just a suggestion.   ;D

I'm trying to fit a dual ez1290 in a 1u case, however I need at least 37mm of internal height clearance for the output transformer. What is the clearance for your 1u cases?

Thank you,

No they cost more because of the 3 color silk screen and they are big.  They are 14" deep!  That is what was needed for Drip's PCB's.

I added the cost to the post above.

Here is something new I have been working on.  I have a 3 space and a 2 space version.  I am using DMP' PCB's for the case. 

I'm using it in a 9" case with and external PSU.  I think one could build a PSU into the 2 space version that is 11" deep. 

DMP sent me a bunch of these PCB boards to sell and send out with cases.  So if you guys are interested the cases and PCB's are now a one stop deal.  Just hit me up with and email and I can get you a invoice.  PCB's are 4 bucks each and cases are 110 USD.  I have 3 space cases like the photo or a 2 space case.

Post by: dandeurloo on January 29, 2013, 12:06:30 PM
Binder is a brand of connector.  They are higher quality than a standard XLR.  They also look much more like a vintage connection so they look great on a number of the mic projects.  Some mic bodies require it like the Equinox body.

Here is the Binder site.

http://www.binder-usa.com/

Put this part # 09 0044 00 07 in the search box and you will see one of the parts you will need for it.  You also need the connector that goes on the cable side and mates with this part number. 

Mating Connector for the PSU is Part #: 09 0041 00 07.

So I received my two 1073 cases and a access 312 , the faceplates are great , other than some chip marks on the 1073 rack ears.?????
...the rear panel is perfect , 2 inputs one out just wonderful.
The 312 face is perfect,
However....
Was sent  3 tops and bottoms 11 inches deep, 3 sets of sides, two 11 inches deep and one set of 9" ? This wont fit the tops or bottoms sent, to make this even more fun Dan was out of rear panels for the 312.

The tops and bottoms stick out to far to allow the face plate to fit properly ..

I gotta say this is just knocking the wind out of my projects .....

Guess I got spoiled on hairball cases .....pretty much flawless, in fit and finish.

Not happy.

Hi everybody,

Just one question, I have received one of the dual 1176 cases from Dan, and I am in the process of collecting all the materials.

I have a doubt, because I dont have anything to measure accurately, what is the diameter of the openings for the switches and the led in the front panel.

Also, does anybody have the mouser references for the switches and the led that could work with it?

Hi Dan,

I finally started doing the Mic PSU yesterday, and I realized that the metal cover (the part with the leather strap) is bent and some of the paint has come off, probably some damage during shipping.

I think I would be able to put it straight, but I am afraid I may make more paint come off. DO you have any suggestions?

Just finished up a proto of the Reddi style DI box...  SOUNDS AMAZING (thanks @CJ ;) )

Some pics of the build.  I used one of Dan's regular PS cases.  Mounted the Torroid to the side (yeah theres a hex bolt head stickin out the side, but who cares... looks cool)  Mounted the tube board to the bottom lip (counter sunk the holes so the top still closes nicely)  Did a polarity switch, ground lift as well.  (just need a lamp to complete it).  It actually FEELS really nice to play thru as well.  Hard to describe but if you're a player you'll know what I mean.  It's very responsive and has a GREAT crystal clear sound to it (makes my bass sound like my bass...)  Even though its a "DI" you really don't even need to go into a pre to hit your daw (or tape)... Gain at max is just below clipping on my converter when playing aggressively, but I also have some HOT bartolini pickups, so that might have something to do with it.  8) 8) 8) 8) 8)  Excellent piece ill be sure to use quite often!

@patrickdavis - I just got my case from dan (looks great btw) and i can confirm the wf are the correct meter.  Its a little bit of a tight fit, and you may want to slightly drill into the back to allow a place for the meter adjust screw to sit otherwise they dont quite sit flush.

That (hopefully) will be my first DIY project.

I received my PYE compressor enclosure the other day. Looks great, very nice! Fit and finish is first rate. Wish I had it in front of me because I had a question about the scale around one of the controls. Seemed odd, but cant remember what made me think that...
That (hopefully) will be my first DIY project.

Im interested in a custom 670 case for a point to point build.

Dan, are the front panels for the 670 silkscreened or engraved? And how close could you come to a original style steel U shaped main chassis?

Thanks!

The 670's are silk screened and look fantastic.  I could probably get pretty close to the original U shape.  Hit me up with a email.

Email sent!

Hey, Dan, here is a picture of my PSU for my MK-U47. One Binder, one XLR and one indicator lamp on the front. The Binder is huge and very cool!

Just received 4 Mic P.S. Cases.
These things are very heavy duty, great paint job, all the holes drilled,
even for the feet, and include a black leather handle. Great job.
These make my other P.S. boxes look like tin cans.

Hi Dan, do you have a 4 channel mic preamp case similar to the JLM BA4?  Would utilise the jlm pad/phase/phantom board, 1 gain and 1 impedance knob per channel but no DI socket.  Rear would by xlr i/o and 1x IEC.

I have PCB's and cases for the Access 312 in stock now. 

The cases are 140 USD, plus PP fees and shipping.

The PCB's sold with the case are 10 USD each, plus PP fees and shipping.

If you want just the PCB's they are 15 USD each, plus PP fees and shipping.

Thanks, I just helped a buddy build 4 and they sound really great!

Another one. I read on the access 312 thread that your case only allow for external psu. Is it true or there is enought place to put in the power xfmr (i plan using five fish psu and probably avel xfmr).

Hi Dan,

Re: the case for chunger's new mic PSU (see below), do you have a status on these?

Thanks,
Chris


You should be able to use the mk47 PSU interchangeably with MK-U47.  The relay-based pattern switching is simply not used.

If Zayance is out of stock, I have 2 revisions of prototype PCB's both of which fit well in the collectivecases.com PSU enclosure and work without issue in terms of core microphone functionality.  We are just messing with "extras" particularly the internal voltmeter.

Hi chunger,

What's the update with the tweaks to the new PSU/PCB? Any headway?

Thanks,
Chris

I have the new PCB in hand. . . waiting for Dan Deurloo to make prototype enclosure.  Then I think I can proceed with official build documentation.

Hi everybody!

Looking for two cases (and pcb's) for my  ioaudio MK-U47's.
The Collective Cases are really beautiful, but I assume quite costly to get them over to the Netherlands...
Would there be an alternative nearby?

I don't know, Dan. As I emailed you: I am very happy with the cases. They are perfect and nowhere to be found, but for Dutch (or maybe other EU) citizens very expensive to buy since the Dutch tax office charges you an extra 21% VAT...

Does anybody know the correct standoff size for the ez1073 in Dan's case?  I contacted Colin at AML and he thought it might be 3mm or 4mm.

Hi SR1200, I am looking to build a Reddi style DI box so I was wondering where did you get the PCB/Scheme. That looks amazing!

Thanks!

Just finished up a proto of the Reddi style DI box...  SOUNDS AMAZING (thanks @CJ ;) )

Some pics of the build.  I used one of Dan's regular PS cases.  Mounted the Torroid to the side (yeah theres a hex bolt head stickin out the side, but who cares... looks cool)  Mounted the tube board to the bottom lip (counter sunk the holes so the top still closes nicely)  Did a polarity switch, ground lift as well.  (just need a lamp to complete it).  It actually FEELS really nice to play thru as well.  Hard to describe but if you're a player you'll know what I mean.  It's very responsive and has a GREAT crystal clear sound to it (makes my bass sound like my bass...)  Even though its a "DI" you really don't even need to go into a pre to hit your daw (or tape)... Gain at max is just below clipping on my converter when playing aggressively, but I also have some HOT bartolini pickups, so that might have something to do with it.  8) 8) 8) 8) 8)  Excellent piece ill be sure to use quite often!

Hey guys, I added a few new PCB's to the store that I have been working on for a while now.  I thought I would share here.

The first is a DC filtering PCB.  Great for a number of different project.  You can use it with linear supplies or more specifically any number of switching supplies.  These should be pretty handy along with the switching supplies that I should have in stock soon!
collectivecases.com/?product=dc-filtering-pcb

The second one is a M/S matrix designed around the THAT chips.  I needed to have one for a few things I have been working on personally so I thought it would be a good idea to do a PCB that others could use as well.  I have parts on the way to me now from Mouser to build this one up right away.  I am gonna use it as a IN/OUT test setup for a few other circuits I want to try out in the studio.

So i just had a custom panel cut from Front Panel Designers for my NeoTek Channel strip project....and the damn stock mounting holes don't line up  >:(

What kind of holes do the normal 2U cases take? in FPD i can pick 4 options for the "System Holes"

Part front panel (fishcer)
Front Panel (Fishcer)
Part front panel (Schroff)
Front Panel (Schroff)

I don't see any change when i pick either option.

Or do i have to put in custom holes to bolt my face plate to the case?

Any advice would be helpful...100 test face plate now worthless.
