I saw this on Matrix Synth and thought it was pretty cool! I've been thinking about making a cradle for my synths with a handle and strap pegs so I can use them as a keytar without damaging the case. Thanks for showing this, its quite inspiring.

Your Machinedrum cradle look great! Good job man! :)
It reminds me of the wood sides I made for my Mobius...

Oh yeah, I have one little tiny suggestion. You may want to consider putting furniture felts or rubber pads on the inside planes, so you don't scratch or ding up the front and sides of the drum machine.

Or at least be very gentle when putting it in (as if that needed to be said). Then again, I don't know how precious the chassis is, but its just a thought.

$85 for four pieces of wood nailed together with a bit stain and some varnish. ok if you live in the usa but simply viable here in the uk.

i'm not forcing anyone to buy these, and that price is simply based on materials and my time, some people aren't as handy with tools as others, so you pay for convience.
i honestly had no intention of selling any, i just wanted to show people on here because i knew they'd appreciate it. it just so happens that i got a few requests to build them for other people so i decided to offer it to everyone, and for the people that are not interested, perhaps the pictures were enough to inspire them to build their own.

i think the man should charge what he wants after all it is his time and suppiles, its a beautiful thing you have built there.

and just take a cue from family guy if you dont like the price

"That machinedrum cradle may be worth 85 bucks to you, but to me its worthless!"

Aghh, why cant people just appreciate others work? I have made cradles and stands for my desktop synths as well as casings for them... can take quite a time.

I'll jump in and appreciate others work… the cradle looks really nice, especially in the pic with the Machinedrum sitting in it. I've put together a few wood cases of my own and none look that nice.

i first read that you wanted 85 bucks and thought, "that's all?" i honestly expected you to say 100 dollars, at least. something like that would likely take me all day!

well i'm not trying to get rich, just trying to justify the time involved, plus everyone [for the most part :)] on here is very helpful and very cool, there's no reason to rip anyone off.

so once again, thanks guys for all the nice comments.
