    Hi, I started a new project this week. It's a case for my DB750 that will hopefully make it look a little more like and old school amp. I modeled the new case after the look of the Matamps from england.
    It will have a core that the amp screws to and a removable front and back plates with piping on the butt ends.
    I'm putting two leather handles on the top and a spring loaded recessed side handle.
    Here are a couple pictures of the progress so far. I attatched the front and back while forming it so the edges are sure to line up.

    Very cool project, I actually just picked up a used svt2pro with a similar vintage style rack mount box. I definitely look forward to seeing how it turns out. Good luck!

  3. Nice. Good job with wood working.
    Please post pic when finished.

    I always thought it’d be cool to mount some amp guts in Vox trap head case.

    I've made some progress.
    The case and plates are both sanded and primed. I countersunk strong magnets to the ends and the plates. I'll put on locking pins to keep the plates in line.
    Here's a couple progress pics.

    The magnets and pins worked great.
