Description: These are our large, beefy aluminum enclosures, which have been built tough enough to withstand a truck. This 2mm-thick, die-cast enclosure is rated IP54 against dust and splashing water. Because it’s aluminum, it’s easy to cut and drill so that you can add LCD screens, buttons and cable connections. If you want to “pretty up” your project, hit this with some fine-grit sand paper and buff it or just spray paint it!
These enclosures are perfect for producing “stomp box”-style effects pedals. Try combining this with a stomp switch and some of your own secret sauce circuitry to build a sweet custom pedal.
The lid mates nicely to the top of the enclosure and is secured with 9mm long #6-32 screws (included). This aluminum enclosure version features a smoother metal finish as well as a more structurally sound design.
Based on 1 ratings:
Decent quality, but two of the boxes I got had machine screws which were too small. Joelle in customer service was great about getting me the correct ones.
The finish is kind of rough and the boxes will need to be painted but they are about half the price of other boxes. They are a good deal for the money. I’m happy with my purchase.
