Description

Description:
Stand
This is a New Custom Made Cart Stand (machine is NOT part of the sale and for display purposes only). Hand crafted, can be easy assembled or disassembled. Made of  durable 2.0 steel tubing – it can bare a load of more than 200 kg. Very durable and stable – T-bars are welded and bolted together with crossbars with 8mm bolts. Powder coated in the tone of “Studer Grey” (colour code RAL 7016)
Side panels and rest bar are made from exotic hardwood african padauk. It has deep redish-orange colour which becomes slightly darker with time.
Wheels are by France by leading manufacturer TENTE. The shelf for amplifiers can be removed – please see the pictures. The recorder is NOT part of the sale and for display purposes only.
Cabinet
High quality custom made Cabinet with four sides. Can be adjusted to specific requirements of the recorder.
Side panels and can be made from metal or wood. Stained plywood material used is Baltic Birch. Natural veneer material is plywood applied with natural veneer (wide variety of colors, textures and factures available). Solid wood includes a range of classic materials, such as European Oak and Sapelli Mahogany. Exotic solid wood includes more rare and specific features (note that African Padauk and Bubinga materials have deep redish-orange colour which becomes slightly darker with time). If you would like to know full list of available materials, please let us know and we will inform you.
Meter Bridge 
Meter bridge enables any of Studer recorders (or any other recorder) without VU meters to have control of recording and playback levels. Calibrated or uncalibrated modes, VU meters can be switched between normal and “peak” modes, when ballistics of the meter are adjusted to show recording/playback peak values. Input section has also RCA inputs.

All parts are top quality with high standard schematics inside. Rack Mount or Table top (Shelf) version with wood side panels) are available.

This 3U VU unit is suitable to any Studer Reel to Reel machine – or any other recorder – which comes without VU meters to enable control and monitor of recording and playback levels. Ensures calibrated and un-calibrated level control modes of recording and playback. VU meters can be switched between normal and “peak” modes with a simple push of a switch. In “peak mode” ballistics of VU meters are adjusted to show peak values of recording/playback.

The VU meter indicator circuitry is a modified replica of the Studer A810 (also A812, A816) including a switchable standard VU meter mode and a peak program meter (PPM) mode. In addition, there is a switch to increase the sensitivity by 10dB. -10 VU mode is also useful when calibrating the recorder with a test tape where tones are recorded at a level of -10 dB below nominal and you do not have external audio frequency VU meter.

Our Mark 5 version has built in  oscillator –  generator of  1khHz and 10kHz sinus test tones for  testing and calibration. Linear power supply available as option.

Unit’s “0” value for VU meters is calibrated to “normal” Studer (studio standard) level – +4dB. “0” level can be adjusted to other values – if you want so.

All parts are top quality, schematics used are from top manufacturers. Operational Amplifiers are exchangeable – mounted in sockets. We use Texas Instruments INA137PA, DRV134PA.

In the input and output sections are additional RCA sockets. You can connect signal source which does not have XLR sockets.

Bracket  of the meter bridge attaches to the existing attachment points (screw holes)  of the recorder. This meter bridge does not require special side panels. Meter Bridge can be used  either with original  Studer stand or without stand – as a table top version. Connection wires can be hidden in the  vertical post of the bridge. Connection to the signal source can be done either with RCA or XLR connecting wires.

We provide WORLDWIDE shipping with TRACKING NUMBER.

Please allow two weeks for manufacturing. It is possible to order different wheels, stand color and bar diameter – please contact us if interested!

Write if you have any other questions – we can make any cart stand and dust cover for your specs!

1 review for Custom Made Stand Trolley with Cabinet and VU Meter Bridge Console for Studer Reel to Reel Recorders

  1. Steve S

    I had a custom cabinet with meter bridge built for my Studer A81R machine (the B-wind version of the A80RC). The cabinet looks beautiful and is easier to move around than my Studer cabinets due to being lighter in weight than the factory cabinet without compromising quality, strength, or rigidity. The VU meter bridge is an excellent replacement for the original Studer meter bridge as it replicates the functionality, and adds some features to better integrate with line-level use without introducing the common Studer VU meter bridge issues such as noisy pots and bad capacitors compromising audio quality in the signal path. I plan to purchase a second unit for an A80RC I own that does not currently have a meter bridge.
