Helix cover (custom made padded cover)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

as there seems to be some interest and not everyone is reading the "Show Us Your Helix Rig Setup"-thread where I had posted it originally I'll start a dedicated thread for this.

 

AmpCovers.org offer these, see:

http://www.ampcovers.org
or their shop on eBay: 
http://www.ebay.com/usr/amp_covers

It's a small Bulgarian company and Jordan ships worldwide, within a few days for custom text/logo.

He is super friendly, responsive, reliable and fun to deal with! The covers are top quality, perfectly fitting. 

(I'm not affiliated with them, I recommend them just because they fully convince me and I'm a happy customer.)

 

*Jordan is on vacation until Friday May 27th* 

 

Here are some pics:

 

Outside with custom logo (can be anything else as well), price was US$34

Rear side view. Cover allows cables attached while it's on:

Inside lining (hard to see on the pic) is crushed-velvet, nice & soft and a good padding between inside and outside:

They will make any cover you want, I had also make them one with custom label for my Boss RC-300:

Hope you find this useful.

Rock on!

Reasonably priced, thanks! Seems they are on vacation right now, there is a message on their website. I cannot find these on either their website or their eBay store. It looks like you may be able to specify what you want in an email though.

Love it. I'm a stickler for dust covering the finer equipment in the studio so of late have been using the plastic bag the Helix was in in the box. Definitely interesting

 

Incidentally, roughly how much was shipping to US from Bulgaria for something this size?

Shipping to the US is 25$ with tracking or 15 without I believe.

Is this a cover that sits on top of the Helix or does it wrap underneath as well? Is the back side always open for cable connections, or can it be velcro'd or otherwise closed?

Thanks

I really like this but the shipping is costly.  I wonder if he'd consider some sort of group buy?

It sits on top, backside is half open (no velcro).

Can image he would but then someone would need to ship it to all buyers within the US. Sounds complicated.

On the other hand spending 50 bucks on a nice cover for a 1500 dollar device still sounds reasonable.

Yes, they are on vacation until tomorrow (as I wrote above). Usually they have covers for dozens of devices listed but you want to have a custom logo (copyrighted material excluded) anyway - otherwise the default will be the word "Custom" on all covers.

 

Here you'll find the link to the Helix-cover on EBay:

It's on sale for 30.60 US$ + 19 US$ shipping.

I was surprised the shipping was that low.  Shipping costs have gone crazy.

They do look nice but I already have a Studio Slips cover I had made that I am happy with.

Well BigRalphN, I'm sure they could make the cover a little bigger to cover over your cover on the Helix.

Thanks for shining the spotlight on these! Tucson, AZ is a dusty place and I'm always fighting to keep it out of my gear, this looks a great product. I just sent these guys an e-mail.
