Case Building Inspiration

Mike alias Domestic Music Scene was building a nice DIY skiff case, based on our materials which are offered here. The result turned out very beautiful. In the video he also talks about challenges when doing a DIY case.

 

Maybe this video can be an inspiration to you when you start.



Side Brackets 3U (Pair)

Best side brackets on the market! One pair of 3U side brackets for our standard Type A and Type B Eurorack Rails. They are definitely not cheap but have some clever advantages!  Others might call them side-parts, side-cheecks or side-panels. You can also use them for the corresponding low profile rails (Type A/B). With these brackets you can easily build 3U Eurorack frames and mount them in your DIY case.

There are some different rail types on the market - these are made for the Exploding Shed rails, but also should fit for many others. But you should have a closer look before.

 

• Precisely milled edges, at which the rails sit - these make the resulting construction torsion-proof

• You can insert threaded strips or slide-nuts without dismounting the frame

• Super precise production

• Beautifully rounded corners match the lid of the rails (Type A only)

• Fully anodized aluminium (Types B have non-anodized edges)

• Made in germany, supports local economy

 

There are multiple ways to build a case. When you buy side-brackets and rails together from us, we will countersink the M5 holes on the rails, where the M5 screws will sit, to make sure that the brackets really sit tight.

 

This is only the brackets, NOT the rails or whole frames! You need additional rails, M5x20 screws and threaded strips or slide-nuts.

If you need more than one pair, please increase the number during checkout.

Announcement July 2021: Due to rising aluminium prices we had to change our rail prices for the first time in 5 years. We now restock almost all rails and our wholesale prices have gone up to almost 45% for some items, but not for all. It affects mostly black ones, many prices stay almost the same. We try to balance out the increase through all types and lenths a bit, so no single items go up like crazy if possible. Should prices drop again, we will also forward that to you.


Eurorack Rails - Type A - Standard - silver

Rail (one piece, threaded strip not included) for building DIY Eurorack cases. 84 HP = 427mm, 104 HP = 529mm, 114 HP = 579mm, 126 HP = 640mm, 196 HP = 996mm. Silver anodized aluminium. Type A rails feature a lid, which holds your modules in place so they cannot move up and down. For building your case you also might need some additionals: threaded strips and M3 screws holding your modules and M5 screws for mounting the rails (we have 6 types of screws here). As an alternative to the M3 threaded strips you can also use M3 slide nuts. The hole where the M5 screw sits later has no threading - an M5 screw will carve its way when you insert them. Alternatively you could use a tapping tool, but it's not really necessary.
