Even better, ZM..... Orange neon, driven by a 6-kv torroid--driven off the amp output!

Yep.... I've got those meters "dancing to the music". They seem to be pretty close to true Weston VU "ballistic movement", too......

I was pretty apprehensive about hooking up and testing those Weston meters.... since I haven't found any others like them, over the last four decades.....(!). If I had blown one (or worse, both), I would have had some very impressive-looking wheel chocks.....

Well, excuse me, but the Weston VU meters are the main attraction.
Personally i never had problems with dancing needle displays and LED landing strip markings, some are as pretty as the hood window on a ZR1.

Me was referring to the red-yellow-blue line-up.
I'd keep the blue head lights, and swap the parking + blinker LEDs for blue ones. More classic elegance, less '70s trailer park.
Anyway, still three cheers for the execution level and creative streak.

Good point, Jacco, about the red and green trailer park look--so I covered them up with silver duct tape and old newspapers....!

Actually, they'd only come on, if temp and clipping is/are present; therefore, sight unseen......until needed.

Who cares about engraving.

Go look see at the cleared bottom of the heatsinks, for the fan air to enter.
With filters added at the fan openings, it would basically become a dust-free amp.
Now that's smart thinking of the CanaMmer. (and very un-70s )

Blsabath.....

The "flat front panel" was from Front Panel Express. You can design your panel "on line" using a Front Panel Express design tool. One of the options was for engraving (font style, font thickness, font size). I wanted to acknowledge this as a Nelson Pass design, so engraving allowed me to do that.

In my case, I went with the engraving into the aluminum plate (through the black anodizing); there's also the option to have the engraved fonts "filled in" with various colors.

If you want specific info on the font I used, let me know and I'll dig up my notes.

I used the U.S. location of Front Panel Express. I also believe their main operation is in Germany......

Hope that helps....
