My version of the Calrec PQ1549 Equalizer. Not 100% finished but sounds great  :D  :D  :D

A cheap case, senor letters , some colour, inside two (4) Gustav PCB´s , relais for some switches, wallwart power, lot of work but a lucky winner of a good sounding eq. Another massive passive (ähm active)...

what kind of lettering exactly is that (senor?)? is it some sort of decals?

Nice reflektions of the leds.  :grin:
Looks like the Conrad case.
Are you happy with the sound of the Calrec?

What's going on around here? This place has turned into circuit city!

Seno?
Unfortunately Seno has stopped selling white dry transfers! (at least in the UK)

Nice nice nice - go on - show us the relay boards....

@michael: It´s the conrad case, but you get it much cheaper in evilbay. LED´s are plain (?), means it ends with the frontpanel and have nice orange colour. Yes, comparing to sontec and massive passive its sounds different, more grabby but very very good (and precise).

I will put some pics of lettering and some intructions in here tomorrow...

No relai boards. Unfortunately I cannot make PCBs. So its point to point...

Thanks to all. I can recommand the calrec anyway.

Congratulations! Great work!  Super LED Idee!
How did you fix the LEDs to the panel? Glue?
