So, if you've got overflowing bass, it's opportunity knocking.  It means you can afford larger pads, which will attenuate the bass and give you more opportunities for HF extension.  This is where you go to bowls or jumbos.  Personally, I've always thought there was a sweet spot to be had somewhere between these two - if only Grado would design the pad.  Since Grado hasn't, that's the key place for modder innovation.


I'm going, I'm going! wink.gif

I've been looking for more steel wire to no avail. Guess I'll just give in and buy some cheapie guitar strings and waste half couple of them.

As soon as I get some woodies, and some holes punched, the new pads will be top priority.

What are you using the steel wire for?

A hot wire foam cutter. My last one got too hot and snapped. I used that to cut the homemade bowls I posted here a while back. And the Jumbo in progress is on there too, but that was when it snapped. Halfway through the cut so they are really rough and not shortened yet in the pic.

Walmart's reorganization made the strings impossible to find, so I think I will just order some cheap First Act strings. Anything else and I'd rather be putting it on my guitar.

Hey Bill, sorry to be a pain but I am just curious when/if you sent my driver. I have been eagerly waiting, but haven't seen any sign of it yet. Thanks!

Same here with my shells. We can't rush it if you have sent it, but I'd just like to know if you have sent it yet

I was also wondering the same, hehe. I don't mean to pain whatsoever! It doesn't really matter as my cans are on the way to you Bill, you should get them Friday. Crossing my fingers that my driver troubles are an easy fix and I don't have to replace it! Let me know when you get them, I'll send you some bucks as soon as I can. Thanks again Bill, you rule.

sysfail-here is a pic of the back of the first driver I did with dynamatt, the second ones were identical to this, its like a dime size disk and you leave the foil on- it doesn't come off.

Thanks! That's exactly what I needed, now I know how I should make mine look. So it's not a liquid form? It's like a dime sized piece of foil?

 Heck it's a low end pleather, a little closer to a thin flexible material that is smooth on the surface that comes into contact with your head. ( Wrinkled only due to the arch ) Took mine off as it raises your headband height and I found myself always near the end of the adjustable Rod ends. It just fits better without it on. I also really did not like the over all look of it when it's snapped on.

No pain, no gain.  Dare to be a pain.  I took the day off to set up another mailing blitz.  I get paid at midnight so I'll be making a massive send-off tomorrow.

I'll send you a confirmation that I've received them.  I'm hoping they get here by Friday.  If they do, I'll have a chance to look at them between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.  If we're lucky, I'll have them in the mail on Saturday before the mail runs (Saturday around here is a half-day for the Post Office).  If I get them Saturday, I'll have plenty of time to work on them this weekend and pop them in the mail Monday morning.

As promised, here are some pictures of what I have going on. First, most recently finished Leopardwood cups.

Sharkz, sorry if I came in late, but where are you sourcing the new outer grilles from ? Very nice pair of woodies, btw.

post #2669 of 5003

Next up, the new Barney Grados, but these are at least semi-legit and made of Purpleheart. I didn't bastardize a perfectly good pair of headphones. These are a lovingly crafted mod instead.
