Aluminium Enclosures House Guitar Electronics
Hammond Manufacturing’s 1590 STOMP die-cast aluminium enclosures are the housings of choice for leading stomp box manufacturers. Stomp boxes, also known as guitar effect pedals, are, as the name suggests, foot-operated equipment used by electric guitarists to produce preset effects such as distortion, wah-wah, delay, chorus and phaser. Many players will have a bank of up to 20 stomp boxes, each providing a different effect.
The 1590 STOMP boxes are a rugged, easy to machine die-cast aluminium enclosure well able to cope with the demanding on-stage environment in which they will be used. Available in two sizes, 4.39 x 2.34 x 1.06”, 112 x 60 x 27mm, and 4.67 x 3.68 x 1.18”, 119 x 94 x 34mm, they are finished in a smooth gloss polyester powder paint, which does not chip after machining and provides a good surface for labels and silk screening.
As would be expected, the standard colours are strong and vibrant. Cobalt Blue, RAL 5013; Green, RAL 6024; Light Gray, RAL 7035; Orange, RAL 2009 and Red, RAL 3011 are available ex-stock; the units can be factory finished in other colours to suit corporate styles. A lap joint seals the units to IP54, protecting against the ingress of dust and water, and the painted finish is only applied to the external surfaces, maintaining RFI integrity.
All units can be supplied factory modified with machining and silk screening to the user’s specification; AutoCAD and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded from www.hammondmfg.com.
