Custom Stackable Audio Rack, Amp Stands. Condition
is New. Solid hardwood constuction. There are (6) individual shelves,
(3) pairs of different shelf spacing - 10.375", 9.375", and 5" - and
they can be arranged in any combination. They can be stacked vertically,
equally side-by-side as shown here, or, for example, as a pair for amp
stands to each side and a center stack of four shelves; any combination.
The shelves have Tech Products 'No Vibes' damping feet on the
bottom of each leg and a recess on the top of each leg so that each
shelf locates and aligns to the next while keeping each shelf isolated.
The shelves are 1.5" thick, 19" deep, and have 20" clear width (22"
overall width). Aside from the benefit of flexibility from being
stackable in any array, the individual shelves make component
installation very easy. Place the first component on a shelf, make it's
connections, place the next shelf on top, and then the next component.
No need to pull out the rack to get behind it or turn components
sideways on the shelf to make connections. Interconnects can be shorter,
cable routing neater, and the rack positioned closer to the wall
The shelves are 'butcher block' construction which is
inherently stable physically and acoustically due to the multiple grain
directions of the laminated pieces that make up the shelf. This also
makes the shelves extremely strong; they easily hold 400lbs each. For
this set I chose Hevea wood (maple genus) for the shelves while the legs are walnut. Finish is a hand-rubbed low-gloss, oil/varnish mixture.
make this system in virtually any configuration. Choose the number of
shelves and heights to suit your needs. Choose your woods and
orientation (end grain to side or front). Wood choices for shelves are
Maple, Oak, Walnut, Acacia, Hevea, Birch, and Maple/Walnut mix. Legs can
be virtually any hardwood available. To make it simple I price these per
shelf. Price runs from $125 on the low end to about $225 on the high end
for the common hardwoods (Oak is on the low end and Walnut toward the
high end.) I recently delivered a 5-shelf system with walnut shelves and
curly maple legs for $195/shelf, to give you an idea.
Send me a
messsage if you'd like me to work something up for you. I provide
drawings and detailed specs up front and progress pics as I build - I
try to avoid surprises for either of us. I also custom design and build
other audio-related products such as speakers, speaker stands, and
studio furniture - when I'm not building guitars.
A note about
shipping: these are seriously heavy. I have found I can ship two shelves
in a U-haul flat screen TV shipping carton. This stays under the
major carriers weight limits while providing the necessary protection
for the product. But it's still a heavy package and an expensive box. So
a 6-shelf system can be pricey to ship. depending where it needs to go.
