Check out that rudeboy. Looks like EXACTLY what you're after...

(The tabletop WILL bow under the weight of Turntabes and a mixer - you should put 2 extra LACK side pieces along the length of the tabletop).

P.S - Looks like the Jerker is back in town. Now it's called:

FREDRIK

and goes for just £85.

Looks sweet, thanks Patch!

I'm so obsessed with this crap right now I can hardly do anything else. I spent over an hour today looking through Smutek's post your set-up thread. My work is really suffering. I can't think. My eyes are going 8O . I haven't moved to a new apartment in 6 years. I've been sharing my studio space this whole time, now I finally get to set it up how I want it, and I... can't... think...

What kind of racks to get... how to modify my desk... where will the synths go??? Do I really want my DJ stuff in another room??? I'm losing it.

Check out this site:

Much more configurable, and even with shipping it'll work out about the same...

Geeze. I've been looking for simple wooden cases like that for ages.

Thanks for the link. At this point my inner cheap bastard has taken full control, and I've decided to go for the traditional 8 cube Ikea Expedit turned on its side.
