    M125 cage?

    Post by Sadface on Mon Apr 14, 2014 6:32 am

    G'day folks,

    Recently finished my pair of M125s. Beautiful amps these, plain and simple.

    Beautiful amps however require protection.

    Has anybody tried making a cage or enclosure for these at all?

    There are no ready made commercial tube cages that will fit the M-125's. If you bring one of the amp's to a metal shop and explain what you want, they can probably fabricate a pair of metal covers for the amps. As to the cost ? I can't say ?

    I was thinking some heavy romex to get the shape you want, then braze heavy duty hardware screen to that. Paint it up or get it powder coated. Leave the corners long and add four holes in the chassis to keep them in place.

    Had some photoshop fun when I was building my ST120. Remember this?

     you could probably patent the british  toaster look and dynaco doctor might be able to get rid of a few of them  on his site . retro is very popular right now . if i had a st-70 instead  of a pair of mark 4's i probably would order one from you. lol!

    You may need to be a little more diligent with cleaning your amp. A four slot toaster will produce a lot of crumbs!
