moded my RS2 a little... I think they look better.

A mod inspired by unfortunate events and a broken 'yoke'...

Good amount of time and money were spent on R&D... in other words, a lot of things I tried didn't really worked out too well. But I think I'm finally onto something...

Family photo.

If anyone's interested in a comparison between these Grados, let me know and I'll write up something.

Bling!

Looks solid, what did you use in the end? I've been thinking about milling an RS1 style gimbal (i dislike the work Yoke in this instance) out of aluminium, but so far I havn't got around to finding the correct piece yet.

I ended up using polished brass. It's soft enough that I can drill and file easily, but not too soft that it'll bend out of shape. The idea of using brass actually came when I saw a musician playing a trumpet; I thought brass would give a nice touch since there're so many musical instrument made of brass.

Sweet-lookin' mod. You should go into business.

Woah, that gold really brings out the luxuriness feel of the wooden Grado! Good job!

Not to rain on your parade, but I think it looks awkward. The colors don't match. I would've gone with some shade of brown to match the wood color.

those new plastic grado's remind me of Darth Vader. Love it on that RS2, but I think it'll be best on the HF2... care to send me a pair of those?

I bet they'd look more coherent with yellow senn 414 pads
