New sources for SRBP/Paxolin?

Post by VintageCharlie » Wed Nov 08, 2017 11:13 am

Hi folks!

I have been away from the forum for a long time. Hope you are having good time here.
I saw on eBay that recently some people are building pre-built boards and there are a couple of interesting phenolic materials used. Above all the one from this seller (looks very close to the original RS material):

And then there is this super dark brown paxolin, not right for a 60's Marshall build, but good for 70's and Tone Bender MKI boards. I remember seeing this material being easily available some years ago and i did not buy it, but now i cannot find it. I remember one of the board members was using a similar material on his repro boards on the kurtsequipment site years ago:

If you guys have any sources (ideally in EU), please give me a sign! Actually right now i am after the super dark brown material for a Tone Bender MKI build.

These guys have good stuff, but their dark brown phenolic seems to have almost a matte surface:

Thanks and :hairband:

IIRC I made this board with the stuff from Modulus :

Thanks for the note, Bill!
That actually looks quite exactly what i am looking for. Only i don't see any blank boards of the dark brown variety without any holes in their current sortiment, but i will drop them a mail.

Does anyone have any clue where the type of material could be sourced that retrotronicst uses for their builds?

I've asked retroconist if I could buy some board material from him...perhaps if enough people inquire he will sell it on its own?

I'm not so sure Retros stuff is as accurate as one may think from the photo. I can get a huge array of brown to a reddish hue based on lighting, flash and camera angle with some brown colored paxoline.
