Steampunk Eimac Art

I really dig the steampunk movement it reminds me a little of cyberpunk at least in attitude and creativity. Jake Von Slatt did amazing work on this one.
I kinda wish they energized the Eimac but perhaps that isn't safe or perhaps they are utilizing a dead tube.

Grebe Radio 1925 - Vintage Steampunk

If there was an award for vintage Steampunk design I'd have to pick the Grebe radio. The controls on this radio are my favorite of any piece of audio equipment. They look hot from any angle. If you can find them with an aged patina they look even better. In these pics they have been bling'd.
If I could find a way to get these to control a Slagle 28 step autoformer volume control that would be too cool. I would have to find a roached Grebe CR-18(not pictured) to fashion the most Steampunk Slagle AVC ever made. I've been looking for a good design to put Slagle's 28 step AVC into but doubt it will turn out this cool.
Hard to believe this design is from the past instead of the future. Superb.
Here are some pics of the CR-18 with nice patina.

Steampunk Headphone System


The craftsmanship in the steampunk community is really high. I wish the old cyberpunk movement had this momentum.

Moth Audio Museum Website

I always admired Moth Audio creations. Moth was ahead of the Steampunk scene.

The amp I've always wanted to own the Moth M304TL.


Now that I am interested in passive volume controls I wish I had bought the PV4.


Even though you can't order Moth products any more check out the Moth Audio Museum pages. http://www.mothmuseum.com/mothaudio/products2.html . Moth Audio morphed into EddieCurrent so if you admired Moth check out Eddie Current. It isn't as Steampunk but check it out. http://www.eddiecurrent.com/Home_Page.php
