My first overseas shipment was FedEx AWB 8406 5847 1023 on 28th July 2003 to Mr Dave Diamond (DD) in Los Angeles USA.

It was a big call for Mr Diamond to buy a sound cart (SU) from someone a world away, sight unseen and money up front.

I have named my new cart after Dave Diamond.

Nice lineup! So it seems the DD is intended as a platform for a sound bag with a external control surface attached? Kind of a mid-way option between the bag cart and the folding cart?

 

Any attachment points for a video monitor on the DD? Also, is this cart meant to stay built and not easily disassembled or folded? 

 

Thanks!

Derek, you've got it.

No specific catering for mounts of any kind - tried to keep costs down. However there are a plethora of solutions out there...

There are attachment points for 4 x boom/antenna poles.

Re folding - There are 2 bolts for each shelf. One could be taken out & some pivoting of the shelf would occur - but this was not intentional.

Personally if you look at the dimensions of the cart, it doesn't take up much space, particularly with the wheels off. And they really do come off with the push of a button. The Mb adopts the same principal. When you take the wheels off, it can be packed in a vehicle like a medium/large pelican case.

I still haven't made a page for it on my website, so if you are interested, please email me.

I love double D's!

Is it wide enough to mount rackmount products ie: monitors, Lectro Venue, etc?

Me too...

Its not rack mount width. Its a little itsy bitsy Muppet of a cart. Its not trying to be all things to all people.

I think the external tray width is 400mm. I think rack width is about 495mm.

 

Now Mirror it needs a bit of lateral thinking here and I know you are capable of it.

Most rack mount products could sit on the shelf and hang off the side...

So if you want a rack mount cart I make several.

I have finally made some sliding shelves for the DD cart - AU$100.

Also by popular demand, some rack width folding dual monitor mounts - AU$65 a pair.

They mount into 2 nut inserts in top of side frames.

Also its been pointed out that the standard middle shelf with the lip around it just wont fit a Sound Device CL 12 Alaia.

Apparently the internal width is compromised by the protruding bolts & nuts.

The solution I have come up with is to mount these shelves with low profile Philip head bolts inserted from the inside, nut on outside.
