The Art USB dual channel Preamp showed up this afternoon. Before I even had a chance to test it out, I took it apart to see how hard it would be to add a mount to this little guy. After removing the knobs, rubber side pads, and a few screws you can see that there is about a 1/4 inch of space between the top circuit board and the metal housing. This should be plenty of room to squeeze a couple of low profile bolts in and adapt this thing to a nice and simple 1/4 20 mount.

The top input side should be the best bet for drilling and mounting since it has over an inch of space before the first bits of soldered leads show up on the circuit board. I’ll dig deeper into this tomorrow and try to take a lot of pictures as I build a proper mount for this little guy. The easiest way looks like simply drilling and taping the aluminum case and permanently mounting a cheap cold shoe to the top of this little guy.

I’ll keep you posted.
