Some Photos of my D-AOC
« on: September 24, 2009, 08:31:19 PM »
i housed my compressor in an old tube radio amplifier.


here's the raw (drilled) face plate attached to the unit.




a look at the inside. with transformers only





two shots of the finished unit. not high tech but all together the faceplate and enclosure cost me $0.00.
faceplate was 1 piece of scrape sheet metal and a scape of aluminum i got from some sheetmetal workers i know and glued together(contact cement)

thanks Snatch. just to be clear. the only part of the enclosure i made was the faceplate. the rest of the enclosure is original from the radio amplifier.

Sweet! Looks like some mojo-packed vintage doodad that clients will drool over. Well played.

Also, I love to recycle cases of some misguided benevolence, but rarely do I conceal my handiwork so well as you have.  I have an old White Instruments EQ chassis that will soon contain a vari-mu comp.
