EMC 18U The Nebuchadnezzar

Designed and built for Adrian Romero; a Mexican author, Latin Christian music singer, composer, and pastor from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Throughout his musical career he has won several awards and been nominated for three Latin Grammy Awards.

This incredible one-of-a-kind 18U 168HP Eurorack modular case is named “The Nebuchadnezzar” after the main hovercraft featured in the Matrix and Matrix Reloaded.

She is powered by two Acopian PSUs supplying a whopping 8.5 amps each to ten POWDIS bus boards. To aid in the removal of heat created by the massive PSU’s we supplied the case with a slotted top, custom PSU mounts with additional ventilation beneath, armrest and a new design feature of an open back plane.

The open back design allows access to the cases rear bus boards making plugging and un-plugging of modules easier by eliminating the removal of extra modules to get to a plug buried under a nearby module.

This capacious Eurorack case is also fitted with blue LED strip lighting the modules to further enhance the feeling of being aboard a ship in the Matrix.

“This is my ship…the Nebuchadnezzar, it’s a hovercraft.”―Morpheus

Description

About our incredible rail
Our aluminum extruded rails are custom manufactured to highest standard in the United States by Vector Electronics and Technology INC an ISO9001 and AS9100C registered company.

Made from lead free 6061-T6 aluminum that is heat-treated for hardness and clear chem filmed to MIL-C-5541 to resist oxidation. Their aerospace quality makes them the finest rails in the Eurorack industry and the Rolls Royce of rails.

Why not use cheaper Chinese rail?
Other case manufacturers use much cheaper lower quality rail made in China that is not heat treated or chem filmed thus reducing their hardness, rigidity and resistance to oxidation.

We have chosen to supply the finest rails and yes we would save considerable money using Chinese rails but want you our client to have the best.

To the edge of the case installation
Our in house designed system of installation allows “to the edge” installation of your modules with no display of the rails “cheeks” and a much cleaner appearance.

Nut strips or sliding nuts?
We only supply our cases with the true Eurorack standard of threaded nut strips along with plenty of screws so you can install your modules right away! Sliding nut strips are a cheap inferior solution.
