Front panel service
  • Hi,

    I’m looking for an alternative to my current choice for front panels (Schaeffer). Requirements are rather simple: 2mm aluminium, drilling, cutting, milling, punching and printing labels and a color background. I have contacted Re:synthesis in the UK and liked their prices and service very much, but have had difficulty with communication. Slow replies or no replies at all to my emails. I also know of Fahrion, but I would be open to alternatives. Preferably in Europe and low-volume friendly.



    Crazy website, but good quality and reasonably priced. They will also do uncommon stuff like anodizing after milling, printing before anodizing, etc.

  • is the beast ( the same as re:synthesis?


  • The Beast can be a bit slow to reply.

  • I got a custom panel done by Ben @ re:synthesis. It was quite quick, but turned out quite expensive. It was full-colour, though, and a one-off, so I should probably have expected that, really.


  • @TheSlowGroth: Oh Modushop is in Italy, might have to check them out!

  • @toneburst: beats me, my last frontpanel from Schaeffer for my 19” 3HU Shruthi programmer cost me around 180€, the design for my 19” Shruthi XT is right at the moment around 230€. I am still unsure if i’d be willing to pay this for a frontpanel, or even go the route to make my own.

  • This Modulshop is a good find.

  • Yea, their cases are very good. They are all more on the mojo-HIFI side of things, but from my experience they make anything you will ever want – if you ask then via email.

Howdy, Stranger!
