Hey guys.

im currently working on a glass-ware (john broskie) Octal CCDA tube preamp, and im going to go all out on the enclosure!

its gonna be made either from brass with mahagony or stainless steel with oak.. but right now im leaning towards the stainless option.

here are couple of pics:

brass option:

stainless option (with a black painted face):

ill post some picture of the inside soon!
im using SolidWorks to build the case on my pc and then i will laser cut everything.

what do you guys think?

Stainless is the modern style, as so I've seen.

It's also:
- Cheaper
- More durable
- Easier to maintain without fancy coatings

Since you have a laser at your disposal, I shall assume the bending and punching are a non-issue.
(if you're hand bending or punching stainless.... fuggeddabbouddit!)

Cheers!
