I decided I wanted to try something different for the back drop and I really couldn't see the speakers so I came up with this and it turn out pretty nice.This is just a prototype and there are a couple of things I need to adjust. Let me know your thoughts and enjoy the vid.

That looks great! Makes you wonder where this type of talent is missing at Stern.

#4 6 years ago

Looks amazing Joe! Don't know what else you can add to make it better. Let me know when it's available.

I don't think it's a matter of talent , cost & profit margin is . I'm sure there's plenty of great ideas.

Love it but I'm torn on the loss of the blue color from the standard backboard... looks very cold with black. Perhaps you are working on colorizing things, or perhaps with the right lighting decisions it would looks fine. Thats my only reservation.

Here is a second version I am trying out, it has more color like the original. I have another idea that I received from a pinsider that I will try next. This one has 2 layers of acrylic, blue is the main and white is the cut out of the electricity pasted behind it.

I like it too. Reminds me of the medieval madness back drop.
Nice work.

#12 6 years ago

Final design.. if your interested contact me through my website. This is a pre order list till I can work out material costs, doing them one at a time is expensive. I would also like to thank Hooked for contacting me with this idea and some simple wisdom.

Thanks
Joe

#15 6 years ago

Digging everything but the high voltage signs, Tey look out of place back there. Just my opinion.

#16 6 years ago

Please ad me to the list

I am going to make that an option, I have some that like it and some who don't so it will be up to the customer. I should have a solid price on these today.

Looks sweet how much ?

Not 100% sure at the moment since I am still prototyping this. I have some other material coming and we are designing a throw switch for the panel. I will have more on this next week..almost done

any update on this Joe?

#22 5 years ago

What happened to the project?

#23 5 years ago

I purchased one of these from Joe last year. Love it. It's all black until flashers go off. Also has a high voltage sign and electric chair switch. Very custom mod.

#24 5 years ago

All sold out..

#25 5 years ago

I didn't want to say anything that would crap on Joe's thread, but since he's sold out, I'll just say that anyone who's looking for something for the back of their Metallica might have an alternative in the near(ish) future ...

#26 5 years ago

Dang Aurich. Are you going to leave any money in my pocket? Can't wait to see what you come up with. This one looked to be pretty cool.

Haha. I didn't know Joe had done this one, glad he's not doing it now so I don't have to feel bad about competing. I'll reveal more when it's ready, just didn't want people to be disappointed there wasn't an option out there ...

Let's just say I have plans to make it a bit more over the top than this.

#28 5 years ago

Put me on the list bro, i love your work.

lol, thanks, I'll start a thread when I'm ready to show something. I wasn't going to say anything yet, but since people were looking for something I figured I'd at least speak up since it's not stepping on Joe's toes.

Anyways, enough taking over his thread, I'll have more to show later, aiming for early next year.

#30 5 years ago

I'm in!

#31 5 years ago

You guys crack me up, but it's motivating to try and make sure you actually want it once I show it.

#32 5 years ago

+1 on that..I'm interested, Aurich. I had a plan for my back panel that didn't pan out.

In! I'd love to have another goodie next to Helen.
