Beside the 1620 Limited Edition, check the Record Bag its a World Cup Limited Edition

Saving some money to build an ergonomic console...

Bet you anything it's a 12ax7

I don't get how you can spend so much on a mixer yet put shit into it...Serato interface and Ortofon Elektro at least feed it with something half alright if you've forked out that much for the mixer.

What monitoring system are you using?

Hi everyone, that picture of the console was during the spring, I took the CD TT out to re rubber band the suspension, and unfortunately dust, specifically CARBON DUST, is part of BUMPER CARS operation. We clean, vacuum, and wipe everything down on a daily basis! Next morning, it is all dusty again. Carbon brushes inside the bumper cars DC motors are the culprit.

What are you doing to correct the timing issues though? Surely you must have issues with that using 3 completely different types of subs, and possibly from the different types of midbass horns as well. Different drivers in different cabinets with varying horn path lenghts are going to behave differently, thats just physics. No big deal I'm just curious and I think it would be interesting and educational to hear how you have addressed these issues.

Thumbs up

I was going to post this earlier, but it kind of slipped my mind... Just thought I'd share what I got to play with at Bar Bonobo when I visited Tokyo, Japan in May earlier this year.

Now, that's what I call knobs, lol.

Now, there are knobs, and then there are KNOBS! I particularly like how the lower knobs are clearly so important that they need to be kept behind bars. Serious.

Loving the pint-glass on the turntable in the background too!

Interesting, do they make brushless DC motors for bumper cars? I used to be really into RC cars which in the recent few years went from brush to almost all brushless technology. Not sure if they make motors of that size brushless but that must be a lot of carbon dust lol. Isn't that possibly carcinogenic?

That's what happen when peope get drunk. The scary part was that people kept bumping into the table at times. I did my best to keep glasses of the table. Fortunately nothing got spilled.

I wonder how many turntables got their tonearm messed up because the djs decide to actually put their cd wallet over the whole thing with its full weight. Man, I hate seeing that, it makes me cry inside, lol.

Interesting mixer! Hand built by some Japanese guy in the late 70s or early 80s for David Mancuso after his specs I believe. Unless something got lost in translation though, which is highly common over there. Btw, valves inside

That mixer got really hot throughout the night. Almost like we could have cooked egg and bacon on it for breakfast

pretty cool...

tubes are effective heaters....
especially if they are biased into class A operating specs,
which preamp tubes commonly are....

Yeah scary but true I've heard of gear being transported on a bus once and some pisshead actually sat on a deck - knackered the tone arm straight away. Damn shame...

There should be a law against this kind of thing - one drink or bump on the console and it's free beer all night for the DJ

Rock on Kevin! Is that mahogany or sapele?

How do you do your veneer? Do you use plywood that is already laid up with the veneer, or do you apply it yourself? If you apply it, do you use spray on contact cement, or something else? I am far from a professional woodworker, but I like to dabble. I have seen some folks apply veneer with a more traditional wood glue, then put the whole part inside a vacuum shrink bag to apply the pressure. Always wanted to try that method as my Super 77 spray and stick approach does not yield very good results on larger pieces.

The name of the venner is Victorian Mahogany, and I use a contact cement, and apply with a brush, then roll it, and shape it.

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the install at the bumper cars an RLA original? I thought I would love to go just to hear the sound. From what I have seen on youtube it looks pretty great.....and who doesn't love bumper cars?
