post #4366 of 4378

I saw someone mention me on wooden cups. They are currently in the hands of casper being tuned. After that I am going to see how durable they are. Putting them in the freezer, in the oven @ 140F, dropping them a bunch etc. I need to make sure they will hold up and sound good.

Don't forget to drop them from the top of a five story building...

I see people's reviews on craftmanship and if there is paint chipping or a slight crack its the end of the world. You can't just sell stuff to audio people it has to be perfect and endure years. This is why I want to do the extreme testing beforehand.

Look at Audeze there first HP wood cups were spliiting at the mini jacks where you inserted the cables gotta make shure wood is really dry so it doesnt warp and there design was probably to thin in the jack region

In referance to the Disccusion about the Alpha Pads compared to teh Angled, if you are reffering to the Lawton Angled pads

 

I feel, that the Alpha Pads are Darker than the Lawton Angles, the Lawton Angle Pads are more balanced, both have the same sound stage as well, but the Alpha Pads are a little darker

 

now it should also be noted that Stock Denon Pads and are the "brightest" next are the "stuffed" Denon Pads, follwed by the Lawton Angles, and endnig with the Alpha

 

So again, the Lawtons are more comfortable and are more balanced in terms of sound, how ever the Alpha Pads are darker and a little more fun

OK Duuuudes, so on my first proto run I will just have 1 medium set (already reserved) and only 2 more deep dish woodies any shade you want from cherry brown to dark brown to un-stained wood sealed in 3 layers of high high gloss....

 

A few blow outs and misfires reduced the volume of timber and so anyone who want a set of D2k woodies at $99 PM

me....2 people. Will ship just after Christmas...

 

After that I'll be on ebay or an external blog if you want exotic strong grain Dxk cups.

After the Thunderpants fiasco, they don't want woodies for profit group buys etc, sold on this site on the F/S thread.

 

First run not for profit, just to recoup some of my total costs with 3 sets for members on here. Price included tracked international shipping anywhere global (within reason).

 

Here are some photos of the medium depth woodies (deeper than stock less than deep dish) ,they are actually deep dark brown in color with subtle medium brown streaks.....unfortunately overcast today outside ,so not the best photos to show the subtle grain. (Though you can just see it on photo 5 on the lower cup rim close-up).

I did not want to put a second full rim internally, for fear it messes with the SQ of the cans. So 4 exact minimal but strong fixture points inside the cups....these fit like a glove on D2Ks..

I may use this wood for carved woodies and red Urushi lacquered cups later like Fostex TH-900s

 

Tree Latin Name: Xylia xylocarpa
Trade Name: Pyinkado

 

Quote from another person into making guitars...

""Personally I am actually in the process of making a experimental guitar body with it - yes it's heavy but in theory it should have brillant resonance. ""

The cups are fairly light-weight and not much difference to the plastic cups.The solid wood uncut weighs a TON !

 

(The ripples and white bloom you can see on the cups below is the reflection of clouds...)
