Hammond 1590B2 is BS.
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:39:21 AM »
Rec'd a question regarding some of the B2 drill templates in projects which led to me finding a discrepancy with Hammond (or maybe I made the mistake, not sure).

There are several projects that have "B2" drill templates. These include several of the OD's and Distortion projects released last year as well as the Kraken. The B2 is supposed to be a 1590B with a 125B height. However, either the specs or designation has changed on these enclosures. On Mouser, the B2 is listed as having 1.3" height and the Hammond 1590BS is listed with 1.5" height. However, I have on hand enclosures that are labeled B2 but with BS specs.

So, these build docs need to be updated from "B2" to "BS" which I will do today. Sorry if this caused confusion. I'm confused by it too :(

Hmm.  I need to measure the B2 I used for my last pedal.  It did seem tall and very similar to a 1590BS I used previously.

I wonder if there was a packaging error. Have you tried contacting Mouser to make sure it wasn't just a mistake?
