Hammond Pedal Enclosures- Which Are Like MXR
Hello, I will be building some pedals soon and want to know which Hammond pedal enclosures are like the MXR "Phase 100" and "Distortion + sizes"? Thanks so much,

Hey Derrick,  
 
The Phase 90 size would be the 1590B and I believe the Phase 100 equivalent would be the 1590BB.

Thank you Jim!! I am interested in the Phase 100 size at the moment but I'm concerned about some measurements I saw for the 1590BB. It looks like it's depth is smaller. Is this true, and will I have a hard time fitting a project into it that's the same size as a Phase 100? Thanks again!!

Hey Derrick,  
 
It may very well be a little "shorter" - I haven't compared the two side by side.  
 
I just built John Hollis' Easy Vibe in a 1590BB and with the second footswitch for a speed control it's a tight fit. I couldn't center (height-wise) the in and out jacks and still get the board in.

Excellent!! I'll give it a try! Thanks so much for all your help.

Hammond makes another series of chassis which are absolutely identical to the 1590s in dimensions, machinability, finish, etc., except that the lids have an extended (1/2" or so) "lip" on the two short sides, with holes drilled in each corner. For people who have plans to put their pedals onto a pedal board, these chassis provide a convenient way to mount pedals securely. You can just bolt the pedal to whatever the preferred base is from the top side. I wish to heck I could remember what the series number of the boxes is. I'm fairly sure it has 1590 in it, but the suffixes are different.
