Hi,

I have a penny and giles pot I'm using as a passive preamp, but it doesn't have a home yet (

I am trying to find somewhere that I can purchase a prefabricated chassis that I can stick the pot into, and run some RCA's out the back. In a perfect world it would look snazzy, perhaps brushed aluminium or something...

If anyone knows of somewhere selling such a chassis, please let me know!

Lightbulb Chassis

Chech out Mark V Electronics. Their web site is weak, but they have tons of kits and chassis. They had a pre-amp one for around $60.00. Brushed aluminum. Cheapest prices I've seen anywhere. You may need to request a catalog, cause I don't remember seening chassis on the site.
They are in Montebello, CA.

Thanks for the tip. Can you direct me to their website (Which will no doubt also have their contact details so I can get a catalog!)

I don't know Mark V's address. Check out http://www.wssh.net. They have the most links for audio I've ever seen. It's alphabetized!. Mark V is in there, so is everything else!! Good luck!

I messed up, sorry, the link I gave was no good. Try http://www.wssh.net/~wattsup/arsl.html#m. If this don't work, I'll go to the site from my favorites, and I'll send you the link that way.

I was sent this fantastic link from Mr William Stroud. The prices seem exceptionally reasonable!

Thought I might point out another source for an enclosure. Check out
http://www.par-metal.com See what you think of the "10-series". I was
thinking of purchasing one myself for a project I'm working on
(Sanders/Waldron style electrostatic hybrid). They've got the brushed
aluminum faceplate, handles, etc.

I'm also looking for a chassis for a pre-amp. Does anybody know if someone would do the custom drilling too? Thanks.

If you want a really neat front panel without too much expense draw up your front panel on your computer including pot/switch/connector cross hairs, reverse it left to right print take down to your photocopy shop and get a clear thick film copy. When you reverse it and fit, the lettering will be inside so not prone to being rubbed off. Coloured panels look pretty good this way and quite cheap.
