Finally added some bling to the TriangleArt SE...

After enjoying this table for a year, I decided to take it apart and clean it up. I sent the entire table out to be nickel plated rather than chrome because I like the slightly darker look over that of chrome. After plating, the top surface of the plinth was painted Nero, which is a Ferrari factory black. Just put it all back together tonight...t5vf7i9mcr9e.jpg

    Not shiny enough.

    Seriously John, guh-hohr-jus.
    Does it play records too?

    Do you have a house policy yet on Little Fingers? All I know is my brother and I absolutely wrecked my Dad's very modest Technics SL-B2 over the years in the old days. All accidentally. I wonder if this will see the same scratching experimentation with Michael Jackson's Thriller and a Puff The Magic Dragon yard sale find.

    That looks amazing. I only wish I knew what I was looking at! ;) Seriously, the photos are probably deceptive, since that black is so glossy and everything is so reflective. I bet it looks even better in person.

    The color is called Nero, and even though it looks black, it is only close. Even Ferrari can't acquire black paint

    Makes complete sense, I knew it was too good to be true.
    Not trying to by a smart a$$ but do you find it has changed the sound at all? I'm talking about all the bling you added. seeing as one would think it might have made it slightly heavier.
