Looks great! Just an FYI that might be helpful. You can actually buy some really cool legs from Ikea that work great on DJ consoles. I used them on mine and for a couple I built for friends of mine.

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/ca...kspaces/10712/

They make some really quality legs that are actually removable. You screw in a base and the leg with a large diameter threaded top screws into that base. Height adjustable as well.

Still need some sanding and of course a paint job, but right now I value using it higher than finishing it up so that's something I have to do another time.

I know, originally I actually planned using these ones - http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40134371

They would make the overall look a lot better than the soda crates I'm using now, but they also cost more than twice as much each than all the crates together. Also I need to modify or add some pieces to my console so that I'll be able to get the hight I want. It's an easy fix to mod the console so that I could use it with those trestles, but wouldn't want to use more than two of them and I see they're only capable of holding 50kg's each. Most likely they're rated for less than what they can actually take, but still I'd like to be on the safe side. Don't know how much my console weight is, but I'm pretty sure it at least have to be somewhere around 100kgs with all the gear.

I think I'm gonna look into what the alternatives are. I planned to make a shelf to place underneath, but we'll see where it's going

The 'vika curry' IKEA legs are strong & rediculously cheap ($5/€2.25 a piece), perhaps 6 or 8 of those would be a solution?

I'm also curious which CDJ stand you're using Ole!

I made it myself using a tv/monitor table mount bracket and some DIY spirit. Just look at the price on those cdj stand, it's hilarious...

The bracket is kind of generic and it's made in Taiwan so I guess there's more shops selling it with their logo on the box...



I took some pieces of MDF and made it the same form as the cdjs, only maybe 5mm larger on each side. Took a pencil and dragged it around the unit


(Don't know what these are called in English, but it's the part marked with yellow in the picture. They're used for furniture etc.)

I used 4 of those, only turned around the other way. They're made for 6mm bolts by the way and the outside diameter fits perfect inside the hole underneath the feets on the cdj 800. Only thing is that they're not made for being mounted that way so it has an allen key hole which I needed to drill round so that the machine bolts where able to enter from this side as well.

Then I placed the CDJ on the piece of MDF I had cut out and marked where the feet where. I also marked the center of each feet and drilled a hole by measuring. Here I made holes that where about 2mm larger than the bolt I was using so that I would have some room for adjusting its placement afterwards.

I then took all the pieces and put it together, made the CDJ fit properly on top and tightened the bolts once all feet where in it's place. And that's pretty much it...

80's gig last Friday

Just wanted to share a pic from my gig last Friday. This was for my neighbor Stephan's 40th birthday party. The event was held at 360 Bar in Makati City, Manila.

It was an 80's theme party so ladies came as Madonna (circa Like a Virgin), Tina Turner & some Flashdance outfits. Guys were either dressed up as band members of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet or Billy Idol and Van Halen.

I brought my rig along and just patched into the house speakers system.

Recently modified/upgraded SL-1200 MK2 turntables (2)
Shure White Labels cartridges (2)
Allen & heath Xone:62 mixer
Native Instruments Audio8 soundcard
Tracktor Scratch running on an old Apple iBook

and lotsa tracks from the 80's

My new console

Pics of my newly-built console! Far from perfect but it's easily the best cabinetry work i've been able to pull off so far. The next step is to build a matching cabinet replacing the temporary white one underneath.

It's walnut-veneered ply with a clear poly finish. Just the UREI and Bryston installed for the time being, I'll be adding an isolator and power conditioner soon. The extra knob you see above the mixer is a dimmer switch I built to control the lights.

Nice house! Very classy set up and not over the top at all! Love the cupboards holding your records too! And the lamps.

What JBL's are they? And what is in the console with the single knob?

Thanks!

The JBL's are L-36 Decades, the 10" little brother of the L-100s. Lovely speakers with a very sweet mid.

The single knob is a control for the lamps! I attached a dimmer to a rack-panel and drilled a hole for the shaft.

Very nice indeed, Lime Twig!

That's basically what I'm aiming for when I move into my new place in a few weeks. However my carpentry skills are zero...

Loving the JBLs - I've got the L65 Jubals and, when positioned right, they sound amazing. Fat bass, clear mids and super extended treble with the slot-tweeters.

Oh, and loving the picture on the wall behind the decks too. Nice.

Jubals! I've always wanted to hear them, such a gorgeous looking speaker. Do you know if the mid is the same as the 36? I just love vocals on this series of JBL, they sound forward but in such a great way.

Glad you like the photo of the Comrade... though I should say I have at best a complicated relationship with him

Off the top of my head, I think the mid-drivers are LE-5s.

As for the photo, I meant more the style than the content!
