10U inspired by EMS VCS3

From €415

A homage to the 1969 classic by EMS, the VCS3. I was inspired by its angles and the iconic slots which apparently were speaker openings in the original. After the 3d model, I made this final version in 10U 84HP Solid Oak, oiled with linseed oil in ‘walnut’ colour … so happy how it all came together! Since then I have made quite a few of these with some small adaptations to the original and most important .. more sizes and colours!

It has aluminium rails with brass threaded insert, a power socket in the back and can be supplied including a MeanWell rt65b and @modularsynthlab bussboards.

Dimensions: My 10U model based on the VCS3 is app. 35cm deep and 39cm high. Width depends on the amount of HP (84HP is 527mm, 104HP is 529mm, 126HP is 641mm, 160HP is 813mm) + 12mm sidepanels on each side.

For other widths and/or other models of cases, check out my configurator!

Wood finish
This case has been designed in 'classic vintage brown' look, but can also be made in different colours!
Rails colour
Also here it is designed with aluminium rails next to the brown wood, but black rails can look amazing too!
Power (optional)
The MeanWell rt65b PSU gives +12V 2800 - 3500mA -12V 500 - 1000mA and 5V 5000 - 8000mA, supplied with Modular Synth Lab bussboards and a DIY cable kit for (easy) self-assembly.
Shipping crate (optional)
These cases can be shipped in a 6mm plywood shipping box, mandatory for all overseas shipping and highly recommended within Europe.
Shipping box (optional)
Alternatively to the shipping crates, I now also offer super-strong triple-layered cardboard boxes for the smaller cases. The case itself is packed inside with foam blocks. Quite a good solution for international transport!
