IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 111

post #1651 of 1910

Not specifically Jergpads, but I've fiddled with other stuff (of course). The basic mods with the holes and foam spacers I can do no problem. The part that involves stitching I've never tried before... but I'm reasonably handy with a needle and thread so I could probably do it (or I could just do it with tape/glue).

That's the mod, you think its worth the time and money?

That looks pretty straight forward. I hadn't seen the full pictorial like that before, but it's pretty close to what I had in mind anyways (granted I didn't have all the flipping logistics sorted out).

 

From the things I've read most people say it's worth it for the 400/500 but not the 6. I have no idea how much a jergpad/modularpad goes for though. It's not overly difficult, but does take a bit of time.

Back when jerg and later his buddy was doing it a jerg pad mod was going for 60 bucks plus shipping and paypal fees. I'm in the middle of negotiations right now with someone and I'm offering 50 plus 9 dollars shipping and he pays the paypal fees. He told me he'd think about it and I said I'd want to see some pics before finalizing anything if he decided to take it. Early on he sounded like he was trying to see if he could flip them but backed off when I said I wasn't interested in paying an overly exorbitant price for a pair of used pads By my calculations I'd be getting a used pair for around 20 bones less then they were going for new after all costs were factored in. We'll see what happens

 

If I could convince jerg to do a pair for me I'd rather pay him the 60 plus ship and fees and get a brand spanking new pair. The pics I've seen of his pads look pretty professional.

Geez that's cheap. They must get some nice bulk discount and save on shipping, and working in batches would make things significantly easier. If I were to do it, just two sets of pads to do the mods on is $30, and with shipping/taxes/conversion that's probably $50 for the pads alone. Labour is probably 2 hours minimum when doing a one shot (I could see half that when working in assembly line).

 

I do have my stock pads for my HE-6 (both pleather and velour), but I don't really feel like snipping up stuff without replacements. Although if I were to do it for the HE-6... I'd approach things differently anyways.

Woot woot, I've just bought a set of jergpads.
post #1658 of 1910

Woo, congrats.

 

We still need to find some time to compare headphones man. You can also try out the Beyer leather pads I have.

post #1659 of 1910
Yeah, we have to meet up sometime soon. I'm sorry I've been a no show over the last couple of months. I've been that busy, my apologies Nathan.
post #1660 of 1910

Where did you buy the jergpads from? 

post #1661 of 1910
From another head fier. I threw some feelers out on a couple of threads and got a response.

Thanks Nathan.  I'm hoping to get a standalone recorder, rather than an audio/midi interface (already have one of those).  If I can get my desktop PC working (new mobo needed), I won't need the recorder, but I do prefer recording without the computer, and using the computer simply for editing.

What do you guys use to haul your gear? Other than meets, does your gear even leave the house? I was thinking of ordering a Hifiman travel case, but if people here have a better idea, I'm listening.

post #1664 of 1910

I usually pack things into their original boxes. Or just some regular cardboard boxes or rubber bins and towels. I've seen some of the guys use luggage as well.

post #1665 of 1910
I use a rolling luggage bag with stuff in bubble wrap inside.
