In Order to Reduce M7 Lead Times...

We have added a machinist and three CNC milling machines to the Bricasti shop in Shirley MA. Surprisingly, quality machined parts are the long lead time items for many pro audio manufacturers. So, now we are doing our own metal work.

Here is a picture of the first fruit of this endeavor, just taken yesterday. These are the backsides of a group of partially completed M7 front panels.

Nice Casey!!!! My dad was an experimental machinist who worked on the Apollo missions, among others. Used to BUILD parts for my motorcycles, cars, etc. on his mill and lathe in our garage (well, his shop really). He saw no reason to buy something you can build yourself. Glad to see you carry on that tradition. Seeing those big hunks of machined aluminum would make him stand up and take attention. If he was still around, he'd be making custom parts for my tape machines, console, etc.. heh Thanks for the memories.....miss him a lot. Best of luck with the new endeavors.

PS - loving the M7 more and more. The only problem I have is I tend to find a patch, and stick with it cause I love it so much. I don't think I've explored 1/100th of it well yet. And it's been on at least 50 mixes so far in the last couple of months.
