ps they aren't glued down just yet. 




If you actually do want to change it, Custom Series maybe? Call them CS60?

Mod Series = MS = Alessandro. Only justification I have for wanting to change it tongue.gif

+1 to liking the rings. Those are sweet. Also, good news. My first pair of grado's are on the way. I'm pacing the floor awaiting their arrival. I've already got pleather and dynamat on the way, many thinks to mksuen and Bilavideo. I already found a few pieces of mesh in the house.. Now i just need some felt and contact glue, maybe a little blu tack and i'll be all set for wave one of modding. Can't wait.

I remember when Kites first started posting in this thread.... I recall some seriously ugly stuff as he dug into modding... seemed like more damage than progress... 

 

Now look at what he's turning out!! Awesome stuff.  Well done Kites!

 Glad it worked for you.



Thanks Tyll.

 

One of the things I've pondered out loud about in this thread is an earpad that can somehow bridge the gap between the jumbo's and the bowls. Something with a little more sound stage than the bowls, that can tame the highs a bit and still maintain that Grado energy. Maybe something that incorporates the principles behind the tape mod too.

Where would I find rings like that-don't need to be Grado- just rings like brass that I could use....

The screen Bill sent is cool but I will use kitemans mesh with some kind of ring...oh by the way-the materials these shells are made of is "the wood that sounds good" wood....LOL...inside joke...right Bill??

I still want to have the flats leatherized.

Really nice looking Grados Kites. "The Custom Series" would definitely sound cooler than "The Mod Series". smile.gif

Hi everyone,

 

Decided to change up the design and came up with this.  Introducing the monkey ear edition...

Still keeping with the hybrid tradition of wood/alum.

 

Cheers,

Al,

 

Those are quite nice - actually, very nice.  Are you using the aluminium from the SR325, or milling some new pieces from stock?  Also, does your wooden cups extend down inside the aluminum, or are they basically on the surface for appearance?  Sorry for the questions - a few just popped into my mind when seeing your "nice" design.

 

Thanks,
