The 1590 die-cast enclosures family from Hammond Electronics consists of 41 different sizes in the standard rectangular and STOMP Box painted variants. STOMP boxes, colour coded to provide visual quick identification on stage are the housings of choice for leading stomp box manufacturers.

Also known as guitar effect pedals, they are the housings for foot-operated equipment used by electric guitarists to produce preset effects such as distortion, wah-wah, delay, chorus and phaser. Two new sizes, the 1590 BX2, 254 x 70 x 35mm, and 1590 BX, 254 70 x 51mm, have been added to the range to allow multiple pedals to be mounted in a single enclosure.

The two new sizes have also been specified in a completely different requirement, a radio antenna splitter, where multiple local feeds are broken out from the incoming aerial. In both applications, the intrinsic RFI shielding, the mechanical strength and the environmental sealing of the 1590 were important requirements.

A lap joint seals the units to IP54, protecting against the ingress of dust and water, and the painted finish is only applied to the external surfaces, maintaining RFI integrity. The 1590 is available as standard in natural finish or with a satin black painted finish.

All sizes can be supplied factory modified with machining and silk screening to the user’s specification.
