The HEX-01 is a professional Eurorack cable hanger created with advanced modular synth users in mind. We not only believe in this product due to it's appearance, but because it also holds far more than most eurorack cable hangers available today. We were able to fit up to 360 (stackable Tiptop Audio) 3.5mm patch cables, for instance.
The final cable count will vary depending on your cable end housings.
This hexagon-shaped cable hanger measures roughly 12 inches across and fits on a 5/8 inch mic stand (stand not included). A weighted base is highly recommended.
- 48 slots to hold over 300 eurorack cables
- Fits 3.5mm cables, and TTS Bantam cables
- Center bevel design, for added strength, stability, and aesthetics
- 16 gauge laser cut steel with an attractive textured black powder-coat
- 6 additional laser cut holes for tools, MIDI cables, or hanging (hardware not included)
We will be offering the HEX-01 at a price of $45, including discounts on larger pledges. Whether it's large or small, your pledge will greatly impact the future of eurodesk-z. You can take pride in knowing that you helped to ensure the future of this startup business.
If successful with the HEX-01 product campaign, we hope to release more of our eurorack related designs. One such design would be the well-received "Z-1" This will be an adjustable studio desk, for users with portable eurorack cases. It is intended for those who travel or perform live and need the convenience of a desk for their studios.
The designer/founder of eurodesk-z is Jesse J. McClear. Born and raised in the Metro Detroit area, Jesse has always loved creating things and offering them to the world. He began by drawing his own comics as a teenager, and selling them, Xerox-copied, on street corners for 50 cents each. At 18 he exhibited his clay sculptures at The Detroit Artist Market. In 1990, Jesse got into electronic music production. He recorded his first album and released it on his own label in ‘95. He formed a group (Heavy Water Factory) and signed with New York’s Energy Records. HWF toured the mid-west of the US, and released three more albums.
In 2003 McClear took on a full time career as a graphic artist where he eventually transitioned into video editing and motion design. He worked with clients such as Chrysler Motor Company, Dodge Motorsports, Mopar, and The Dow Chemical Company. At the same time, Jesse began pursuing photography. In 2010 Canon, with film director Ron Howard and James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), chose McClear's photo Vigor Divided as inspiration for the story of Murphy’s short film "Little Duck." McClear was invited to the premiere of the film in New York, at a red carpet event at Lincoln Center.
By 2013 Jesse continued his musical career by releasing three new albums, thirteen EPs, and eight singles between three separate projects (HWF, Multiples, and under his name Jesse James McClear). It was in 2014 that he discovered modular synthesis. For McClear, it was a game changer. "Eurorack was something I hadn't experienced before. Being free from the concerns of backing up patches, and solely focusing on the experimentation of sound... it's pure joy."
Eurodesk-z came from necessity: Creating products that solve real issues, and helping you stay focused on the creative process.
Special thanks to #Tiptopaudio for use of their outstanding #Stackcables euroack cables.
