new Stainless Steel replacement screws for JP-6 and JP-8

Postby sjones » Mon Jan 08, 2007 10:36 pm

Check these out. I've been sourcing stainless steel screws for many of my synthesizers. These don't have the 'button' head, but a nice flat head that goes flush with the sides. They look great! However, my sides look crappy! I probably should get them rebrushed.

Stainless Steel screws similar to the ones I used in the other picture. The ones on the JP6 are actually much shorter, but look just as nice.

If you're in the US I'll sell you 14 of them shipped for $5. My paypal address is smj@cirr.com. That actually goes for anyone. i think I could do about 5 Jupiters.

JP-6 screws

Postby romannumeral III » Thu May 10, 2007 4:49 am

hi. just wondering if you have a set of screws left. also, what's involved in getting the sides "rebrushed"? mine has some pretty serious scratching on the sides. or, is there an option for replacement/lookalike panels? thanks for your help.

Yes, I do have a set of 14 here. I don't have any news on the re-finishing of sides. It may be easier to just have them remade .. another idea is to just keep them on, but sandwich them with a nice piece of wood and use longer screws.

Wood just looks so... earthy for something that's called a Jupiter.

Whatever floats your boat - but the Drumtraks you posted is black, with black knobs. The JP-6 is a greyish colour, with light grey knobs, and multicoloured silkscreening, buttons and LEDs. I think adding a brown would make it look like a dog's breakfast, but hey - try it! Even if I'm right, a little wood won't have cost that much, and of course I'm usually wrong. Just ask my ex-wife. ;)

If I were to deviate from the existing JP-6 aluminum, I'd like to get some slabs o' metal as thick as those wood sides. I think that would look awesome! Maybe even chrome plated or something!

I need to get some substantial slabs of wood like that to replace the cheap sides on my Korg MS2000. The thin strip of wood on the right side of the keyboard actually broke.
