New Transformer Covers - Neue Trafohauben

Hi!

Since my old supplier of transformer covers can't deliver any more, I decided to develop my own covers with a metal shop. This is the first prototype:






I get many inquiries for such covers. So I decided to not only use these for my amps and kits but also offer them individually. The first series production batch is still about 5 weeks away. As soon as they are available I will set up a web shop in which these will be offered along with other parts like power transformers and capacitors.

The covers will be made in 4 sizes : 

80*80*90 mm
100*100*110mm
120*120*130mm
150*150*160mm

Besides matte black, they will also be available in the other colors which can be seen on my amps: metallic white, graphite grey, dark blue and dark red. Other colors can be made on request. 

The surface of these covers is of very high quality and scratch resistant.

The transformer cover can be mounted to a metal plate with 4 3mm screws, which screw into threaded holes in the corners:




The corners on the top side are nicely rounded:




The covers will come with two different alternatives for this rounding. As shown above and with half the radius.

Another announcement will be made when the covers become available. If you have specific requirements or need larger quantities, please contact me.

Hallo!

Da mein Lieferant für Trafohauben nichts mehr produziert, habe ich mich entschlossen meine eigenen Hauben anzubieten. Da ich viele Anfragen für solche Hauben bekomme, werde ich diese nicht nur für meine eigenen Verstärker und Bausätze verwenden, sondern auch einzeln anbieten. Die erste Serie erwarte ich in ca 5 Wochen und werde diese dann neben anderen Teilen wie Kondensatoren und Netztrafos in einem webshop anbieten.

Die Transformatorhauben werden in 4 Größen gefertigt:


80*80*90 mm
100*100*110mm
120*120*130mm
150*150*160mm



Die Fotos zeigen den ersten Prototypen in matt schwarz. Ausserdem wird es verschiedene Metalliclacke geben: Perlmutt weiss, Graphit Grau, Dunkel Blau und Dunkel Rot. Auf Nachfrage wären auch andere Farben möglich. Die Oberflächen sind sehr hochwertig und unempfindlich gegen Kratzer.

Die Befestigung erfolgt mittels 4 M3 Schrauben über Gewindelöcher in den Ecken.

Die oberen Kanten werden in zwei Rundungsradien angeboten. Einmal wie oben gezeigt und mit dem halben Radius.

Sobald die erste Serie verfügbar ist werde ich das hier nochmal bekannt geben. Für spezielle Anforderungen oder größere Stückzahlen nehme ich bereits Vorbestellungen an. Email:

  7. Hi Stefano!

    No... :-)
    They are produced by a metal shop in Germany and then varnished at a paint shop who also does my capacitors
