This is an alternative black & gold panel for the eurorack module ALM – PPW (Pamela’s PRO Workout). The successor of Pamela’s NEW Workout with the new multicoloured screen doesn’t need our transparent replacement screen protector anymore.
This faceplate follows our minimalist approach to panel design, with elements of the original faceplate to make it more familiar. We decided to include 4 mounting holes instead of 2, in order to make everything feel more sturdy and aligned.
I offer these as a make over kit, not individually. Every kit includes the black & gold panel, black tactile switch cap & black encoder knob.
*Panel installation tips* When you uninstall the original PNW panel be careful, the acrylic screen cover might fall because it is attached to the panel, not secured to it . The acrylic is basically sandwiched between the screen and the panel, and secured when the jack nuts are tightened. If the acrylic cover is firmly snapped to the panel, just use some gentle force to unsnap it. Use a pair of small pliers and microfibre cloth to unscrew the jack nuts. Place the cloth between the tool and the jack nut to protect the original panel from scratches.
**Disclaimer | Before you buy** This is not an official ALM Busy Circuits product. You are fully responsible for any damage you cause to your module, other gear or your self while handling, installing or using the parts that I offer. There are many through hole parts on the module that are soldered in a way that may lead to small center point offsets from one module to another. The panels are made with a margin at the holes to make it easier for you to install them, but again, be careful. I take no responsibility if you can’t install your panels for any reason, but I am willing to help guide you if you ask me. The panels are made of FR-4 so there will be minor imperfections on the silk screen, or the solder mask, the holes, the cuts etc.. In fact, it’s really rare for a PCB panel not to have imperfections. This has to do with the manufacturing process and the materials that are used.
Notes from ALM:
– When removing the existing panel if care is not taken it easy to snap off an LED top.
– The screen assembly is very fragile and should be handled with care as can easily be broken (avoid touching ribbon cable). It is also strongly advised that people keep the screen insert in place.
– The jack nuts are custom and require a custom unique tool to remove easily. It can be done with pliers but care should be taken not to scratch the panel.
– Replacing the panel and/or performing any modifications to the unit will VOID THE WARRANTY. If something gets broken a repair is not cheap.
