Die-cast enclosures allow multiple pedals to be mounted
There are 41 sizes in the standard, rectangular, 1590 die-cast enclosures and Stomp Box, painted variants from Hammond Electronics.
Stomp boxes are colour coded for quick identification on stage. Also known as guitar effect pedals, the housings are for foot-operated equipment used by electric guitarists to produce pre-set effects such as distortion, wah-wah, delay, chorus and phaser. The company has added two sizes, the 1590 BX2, 254 x 70 x 35mm, and 1590 BX, 254 70 x 51mm, to allow multiple pedals to be mounted in a single enclosure.
Both have also been specified with a radio antenna splitter, where multiple local feeds are broken out from the incoming aerial. Intrinsic RFI shielding, the mechanical strength and the environmental sealing are also features.
A lap joint seals the units to IP54, protecting against the ingress of dust and water. The painted finish is only applied to the external surfaces, maintaining RFI integrity. The 1590 is available as standard in natural finish or with a satin black painted finish.
All sizes can be supplied factory-modified with machining and silk screening to the user’s specification. AutoCAD files and PDF dimensioned drawings can be downloaded from the company website.
