Buying enclosures in Europe
« on: October 27, 2011, 01:15:55 AM »
Hi everyone,

I've been reading along for a while now and this is my first second post (forgot about the first one). Been building pedals for over a year now and I really love it.

My problem: I really suck at painting enclosures so I've been looking into buying painted enclosures. Since I live in The Netherlands, buying from PPP or other US shops is expensive (shipping and taxes). Can anybody suggest a good and reliable source for painted or powder coated enclosures in Europe?

Thanks!

Hey dude, welcome to the forum!
I won't hesitate to guess where you can get cheap enclosures in your part of the world, but there are lots of guys here who could chime in about that I'm sure :)

Here in sweden we have www.moodysounds.com, they carry some painted enclousures but its mostly 1590B and which i think are to small for most builds. Here is the selection http://moodysounds.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=7_18_25&sort=0

I would sure like to find a good dealer in europe.

Tonefactory.nl has some BB sized cases in black in a couple of other colors. I have got some from germany (125B), but also standard colors (black, blue, orange...) no special stuff.

Im still looking as well.

I am getting ready to order maybe 10-15 from ppp, but I am not sure yet if and when. I calculated some time ago that price per piece would be about 10 euros including shipping to the netherlands if you order about 10. Thats ok, if you consider time and money spent on painting bare cases that cost 9 euros as well...

Thanks guys,

I'm not looking for anything special, just some standard colors. I love the DIY stuff but painting is not for me I guess. If I stumble upon some interesting sources myself I will post them here as well.

@Boom from the Netherlands as well?

Musikding.de also does (i think it's pretty recent) powder coated enclosures.
