Color Scheme - White?
« on: February 01, 2016, 07:20:52 AM »
Did you prototype an OB6 in white/cream?

The blue pinstripes, at least on the web, look a bit busy. I understand the vintage significance.

Just wondering. What would Taylor Swift do? :-)

White would be unbelievable cool. But many manufacturers don't have the guts.  :)

It'd look good in the SEM style  :)

A white, or "cream" colored OB-6 would have been my favorite! I understand why Tom wanted the blue lines on the OB-6. However, I do not think this decision has done a favor to the instrument's look. The creamy color would also make sense taking the "SEM inspired filter" into mind. And tolex side panels!  ;) But maybe Tom is keeping this kind of design for his own projects.

The OB-6's lines do look irritating from certain angles, but maybe it isn't so in person.  Is it visually difficult to work with the panel for an extended period of time??

I agree with Peter.  I thought the lines would be distracting, but they have not been.

Not in the slightest - don't even really register on me when I'm working.

Haven't noticed.  Everything is easy to read and well laid out... But I also would've loved it in Cream / SEM color!
