    Default Custom TT Dust Cover..

    Well since I aquired the VPI TT, I hated not having a dust cover, and with the $$$$ I have been spending on audio, and the fact having a hard time wanting to spend $200-$400 on one that would fit, or having one made that would fit exactly on my TT shelf.

    I decided to just build my own out of .080 aluminum, and 1/4 acrylic for the windows. I had the aluminum powder coated BK08 that's a gloss black hammer tone..

    I think it came out pretty cool, one of a kind, and it matches my rack..

    Couldn't get pics to upload..

    Sounds like another job well done, did you make it with hinges knowing your abilities?

    Very nice, not your typical dust cover either, which is a bonus.

    Nice classy look

    Maybe stick a couple battery powered LED lights up in the corners when you really want to show off along with your tube gear glow with your lights turned low

    That is brilliant. Great job. How about a pic of it sitting on the turntable?
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    cool... eagerly awaiting a glimpse.

    I need a cover solution for my Marantz (Clearaudio); I currently just throw a cloth over it to beat back the dust.
    all the best,
