found alternative: Meltrope soundbox body & compression ring

Post by kirtley2012 »

I'm in need of a meltrope soundbox back along with the compression ring and rubber for an interesting soundbox experiment, I don't need the diaphragm, needle bar etc. does anyone have one lying around?, Ideally a meltrope I or II but a III will work also or even one of the later decca ones but I don't want a good condition one as it will be modified

Thanks

Alex

No matter I may have found something even more suitable in order to make a meltrope style back, amazing what can be found in the plumbing section, it even fits the meltrope rubber perfectly!
