Ahhh, thanks Cody, I thought there was something wrong with the enclosures themselves. I really loved the old ones though. It's a shame if they're not being made anymore.

i know. the YY's were feckin rad. as were those odd shaped 2-tier wide boxes. dave built a couple stomps in them, i think.
would have been cool if someone cold have bought the business from Mr. Pedalenclosures Guy and kept things going. definitely a void in the market at the moment.

Yes that's the ones I'm talking about. Does anyone knows if a fitting replacement has been found? Just curious...

Thanks

Yes, Captain used rectangular enclosures instead.
3 knob GB-88 model replaced old 2 knob GB-80.

The YYs looked amazing and they were nice and heavy but not so great to work on. The wall thickness was a little too thick for my tastes. Pots and jacks never went through leaving enough threads. I think that was exacerbated by thicker hammertone paint jobs too.
