"I’ll be honest, I was hesitant to shift my flow. I had a bunch of 7U cases all side by side and I thought it was a decent flow. Then I started recalling times I’d spend in stores with big cases and started looking around the interweb at people I admired and knew had cases. The 2Egress setups owned by Lev Perrey, Damian Taylor, and Andrew Huang always caught my eye the most. When I spoke with Damian and Lev about their setups they were always so enthusiastic and assured me of the build quality and next-level attention to detail. It didn't take long before I was sold on the idea.
My case arrived in style. It was perfectly boxed and flawlessly constructed. The look is clean and precise. The LED that is set to light the unit is in the best possible place and reaches nicely to the units I need illumining.
The open rear of the case is one of the best parts of this design to me. It’s allowed me to run audio lines out the back and long interconnect ribbons around inside with such ease. I can easily identify a module and still plug it in when things are getting crowded and leave all the other modules screwed in. It just makes working that much faster. In fact of all the benefits I’ve noticed having this case it’s that. I’m faster now. The modules are all here. I can find my flow and see it all so clearly. I just love looking at the furniture as a piece too. It’s a wonderful design that feels like it’s calling to me! Ha! It’s calling right now. Beauty and function in perfect harmony.
Just love this case. It’s a thing of utter class.
Thanks again for improving my view so dramatically!"
"I acquired The Black Swan Eurorack case two years ago and have loaded and unloaded it many times. The build quality is outstanding! I have moved it across the studio a few times and it was extremely secure – even when fully loaded.
The busboard installation and wiring are secure and first rate. The case is even more impressive in person than its photos suggest. With the addition of the ultra sleek and silent running Daitron power supplies, it is Eurorack Nirvana!
This was my first large scale modular synthesis case build. It required a large investment of time and money. Brock and Dion understood their audience and managed this commission appropriately. I felt supported at each step from the initial design to choosing power sources. They are professionals all the way. Despite these accolades, what impressed me the most was their consistent and over the top customer service. This is sometimes lacking in the modular synthesis world. If you choose them as your case building experts, be prepared for prompt email/FaceTime/phone conversations that not only fulfill the needs you have but also predict the ones yet to come.

"Brock is an artist and a master craftsman who worked closely with me throughout the entire process."
"When I first reached out to Brock to build both a large Eurorack case and 3-bay rack, I had a lot of needs - not least of all was the fact that my system needed to be very compact as I am working in a small studio space. The rack needed to be on wheels so I could get to the back when I needed but otherwise be up against the wall. The Eurorack case also needed to be as shallow as possible to accommodate the small working space which meant that the power supplies couldn’t be in the case. Brock came up with perfect solutions to all of the ergonomic and workflow needs I had such as putting the power supplies down inside the rack, and still having depth left over for the armrest on the case which I heavily recommend for anyone considering a system from EMC. The viewing angles, ergonomics, and layout we have come up with have improved my overall interaction with the synth and make it truly a joy to use. The quality of the woodworking, and fit/finish are truly a thing to behold. Pictures do not do it justice (and there are some great picture on the site) but when I saw it in person and ran my hands over it, only then could I fully appreciate what Brock had built - an amazing piece of art.
Brock fully integrated the power supply, Genus Modu LIBB bus boards and LED lighting systems which made for an amazing out of box experience and I couldn’t be happier with the result - now everything else in my studio looks sad next to the space ship! If you are looking for something that is world-class and will last a lifetime, reach out to Brock."
“It’s absolutely a work of art and Brock is truly a talented guy and amazing to work with.”
“Absolutely beautiful one-of-a-kind Eurorack case Brock built for me. It is built like high-end furniture, brilliantly designed, and powered by Acopian Gold PSUs and a ton of Genus Modu LIBBS for an effectively silent noise floor. Brock designed and built this with so much care and thought,
I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
"A true gentleman, artist and a veritable raconteur par excellence, Brock’s passion for his work is infectious."
Didier Lean Rachou ASCAP Television Composer of the Year
“Having long since admired Brock’s inspiring designs, it had always been a goal to one day collaborate with him on a bespoke piece for my studio.
A true gentleman, artist and a veritable raconteur par excellence, Brock’s passion for his work is infectious. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed our dialogue and collaboration. I must confess that as much as I will cherish exploring new musical frontiers with his glorious creation, it will be with the tiniest pinch of sorrow, in that we shall no longer be composing long missives, obsessively discussing things both macro and minute with regards to the build and a great many other inspiring topics. That said, I do look forward to keeping in touch (and promise to send photos, when all of the modules are installed)!
Brock, I send you my deepest gratitude in helping me bring “La Baronesse” to life. I wish you all the best and continued success with your thriving business!
Friends, if you are seeking something truly special and appreciate the fine feel of uncompromising quality and demanding detail, I encourage you to trust Brock and 2Egress with your patronage.
I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.”

“If you are looking for a world class Eurorack case with absolutely no compromises, this is quite possibly the finest in the world!"
“If you’re looking for a world-class Eurorack case with absolutely no compromises, 2Egress is quite possibly the finest in the world!
Their work exemplifies astronomical levels of craftsmanship, attention to detail and experience. Each one of their builds is truly a work of art and everything from their ordering process to their immaculate packing is streamlined to perfection.
Their customer service is literally the best I’ve ever experienced and the level of attention and clear communication I enjoyed while working with them has made the entire experience a dream come true.
I can recommend 2Egress with my absolute highest regards. You will not find a better case designer on the planet.”
“Brock makes absolutely brillant cases, a genius woodworker who puts so much love and care into his designs."
“Many high-quality studios out there have one thing in common: space. There might be a huge couch in the room, a gigantic wall of modular synths, racks upon racks of synths and guitars, stacks of amps and cabinets, a sound isolation booth for tracking guitars and vocals (and maybe a separate one for both). None of that described what was going to fit into the area I had to work with. My space was larger than most, but I knew right from the get-go that if I was going to really utilize my space, I would have to get creative.
I can’t tell you the countless hours that I spent video chatting with Brock and going over dimensions, layout, sizing, etc. We hashed our way through countless issues this way. Sometimes we found an outright solution, and other times it was a working compromise; that’s just the nature of working with any constraint (space, time, financial, etc.). The amount of custom work and unique touches that Brock put into my studio furniture can not be understated. For every little request or comment I had about something very particular, Brock had an answer for me. It is invaluable being able to work with someone who understands the needs of the customer, and how to implement the designs necessary to accommodate those needs.
It’s easy to look at a small space and think “yeah, those are some nice synth racks”, but I want to be very clear on one thing: 2Egress did not build me synth racks, they built me a complete workflow solution.
My productivity in the studio has been completely revolutionized for the better.”
“The case was built quickly and receiving the shipment was a breeze (it was well packed). Thanks again!"

15U Orange Prince of Darkness
"I’m incredibly pleased with my new orange 15U Prince of Darkness! Ordering and communication throughout the process was very straightforward and all my questions were answered quickly. The case was built quickly and receiving the shipment was a breeze (it was very well packed).
"These guys are awesome, it took a total of 2 months from when I first emailed to when the case was complete, and it is such a solid case that has improved my workflow so, so much. It was a custom commissioned case, and they make all sorts of cases and furniture—2 months from scratch to beautiful finish is very fast!
I couldn’t be happier with the case and the crew at 2Egress who are talented, passionate, and so importantly communicative throughout the whole process. I don’t believe I had to email or call to ask for an update even once; they kept me informed the whole way."
“Far surpassed any expectation for helpful, personable customer service and top-notch craftsmanship."
“Brock and the folks have far surpassed any expectation I’d had for helpful, personable customer service and top-notch craftsmanship. After initial email contact – and several helpful emails thereafter – Brock helped me to pick out and then outfit a terrific Eurorack case (on sale no less) with appropriate power choices that I could not be happier with.
Shipping was swift and packing was well-thought out.
