Everything looks good. Ed please make sure everyone you send a kit to knows about these generic patterns, that specific patterns for specific drivers are available and we that can generate virtual patterns locations for any specific driver, if they will but post a 15 to 30 degree off axis picture, on the non technical thread.

The paint's not included? I'm in but would love to have the preferred paint included in the kit, too.

Thanks Chris...re the paint...the 404106 flat finish which Bud recommends, dries "clear"...it is difficult to see without just the right light and angle of view. Many of you have seen colored paint being used. That is OK to use, just remember Bud doesn't favor gloss finish, the "flat" paint contains more solids.

Thanks Bud, The wrapping I'll use for the nibs will include printed links for many key posts.

Thanks Dave, We all benefit from your input. It makes my job easier.

Participants need not worry that I haven't sent out notices yet. I plan to have the goods in-hand (or almost) before requesting payment. I think it is better doing it that way. As more sign on I feel more comfortable with that. I did find that my preferred supplier for the gloss coat is restocking. I'll contact them tomorrow to get an ETA and from that decide whether to go to another source.

Oh, my goof! I thought the polyscale was just a different option for the 'gloss coat'

I'm still in)

I had to ask:
My drivers are lightly damar'd . Will this treatment work over the damar?

I have been wanting to try enABL and this kit will make it easy, so please add me to the list. I will watch this thread to see when you need the cash and you should be able to email through the forum.

thanks for doing this.

zobsky,

Yes the treatment will work over damar. Dave of Planet 10 can describe what the two together sound like, better than I will be able to. The patterns just take whatever surface they are provided with and correct, at minimum, the portions of signals described in the linked post below, without materially changing the character of the sound. It appears most current surface treatments for drivers are aimed at reducing some objectionable peak in response. EnABL will leave that corrected relationship intact, but bring greater dynamic headroom and the clarity described in the post below, across the FR bandwidth.

You will likely need to use less Gloss Coat, but that is just an assumption.

After some initial experiments i only use damar for the pattern i put on the FE126/127 and on the occasional floppy whizzer cone, so i can't really say what it will sound like. But you can EnABL right over top of the damar.

It likely will also give you a bit less wicking of the pollyscale into the paper, and because the damar has already sealed the cone, less gloss coat as well.
