Nice! I had been curious as to whether you had to make modifications to the rod blocks. Now I know!Rholupat's rod blocks are on my wish list, too. Just a shame the originals were plastic on such a fine overall piece of work.Out of curiosity, how well do the locking mechanisms hold the rods in place on these?
After trying it on a styrofoam head much smaller than mine, this length of strap seems to work with any rodblock positioning.
The length from hole to hole is about 11 1/4 inches.
What was nice about this is the mod was totally reversible, and accomplished with a cost of $6.50 using an imitation leather belt, scissors, and x-acto knife.
I could probably make the edges a little cleaner if I worked up a template, but I'm happy with the result for the time being, and...
At first I tried it touching the headband, but that didn't seem to keep their weight from becoming uncomfortable in a few minutes.
So I recreated it, this time as more of a suspension strap. However, it was too short, and the G-cushions weren't low enough to fully cover my ears.
My third try was the one in the pics, where, when worn, the strap just narrowly misses touching the Grado headband.
Yeah discomfort was almost a deal-breaker for me on the PS1000e. I had to improvise a comfort strap to keep myself from returning them in favor of the GS2000e.
Wonder if a PS2000e could follow the example of the GS2000e and be made of two types of metal... Imagine the weight of that!
If you mean that Grados may be as technologically advanced as they'll ever be (at least for a great while), I agree.But you gotta admit, it's pretty neat to see them experimenting with tonewoods. Especially with original concepts like the GS2000e.
