Didn't seem to send the first time, so try, try again....(sorry if you get this more than once). Name your price (over $65 or forget it) for this slightly oddball and quite specific faceplate, which is one solid piece and contains the graphics for four Blacet VCOs, a Final Filter and Blacet ring modulator. There is a picture link below, but in the meanwhile it is .62 thick, exactly as tall as required to fit into a 3RU rack, and (here's the weird part) 432 mm wide (a tad over 17 inches). The graphics are permanent, as it is made from photosensitive aluminum, with black anodized graphics over a clear anodize - exactly the same process used for Modcan, Cynthia and Serge modules. Some of the module widths have been reduced from the usual Blacet 3 inches - utilizing 'more sh@t in less space' technology. One other odd thing: the up an oct - down an oct input has been replace with a larger hole, which was used to incorporate a gizmotron into one of the 1V/oct inputs. So, you can put the original input back, but you'll need a washer as now that original 1/4 hole is 3/8 in diameter -or- I WILL THROW IN FOUR BARE GIZMOTRON BOARDS.. FOR FREE. that's a value of....not much, but somethin'!!!! here are pictures: left end: http://www.buzzclick-music.com/osc.jpg right end: http://www.buzzclick-music.com/osc4_fil_ring.jpg So what in the hell is a Gizmotron, anyway?? Go here: http://www.buzzclick-music.com/gizmotron.html A note to John Blacet: not to worry, I'm not removing your excellent products from my system, I just made yet narrower ones to once again capitalize on 'more sh@t into less space" technology as I've recently made a dual voltage processor and have nowhere else to slap it in except on this row. There are some slight (SLIGHT) scratches, but really, they are impossible to see without a bright light and magnifier. I'm pretty anal about keeping this stuff in good order. So, now you can own a piece of the box that made Electrolux among other great EAM classics. OK OK OK, admittedly, this thing I'm selling is not for everyone...but surely it's for SOMEONE? That someone can contact me off line if interested. As always, I'll ship anywhere in the world except New Jersy - Peter P.S. Just kidding about N.J.
