Buy it here: The FA-06/08 Overlay/Graphic panel!

Postby Myrk- » 15:00, 12 June 2017

It's finally here, and I am now taking orders!

These are a matt textured finish faceplates including scratch resistant seethrough plastic over all the screen areas (the main screen, tempo screen, and 4 triangular lights) to avoid any future scratching to your device! The faceplates all come with 3M backing, but can be overlaid without sticking also (as per the pictures - you can see the 3M backing brown edging that is not there when fixing the faceplate more permanently). I also include secondary functions in grey under main buttons (there aren't many), and the tempo range has been accurately depicted. I'll get some better pics up when the sun is out!

Currently available is standard Red/Black (limited to 40 units), and a limited edition run of just 9 B&W overlays for you monochrome fanatics! This may be the only run I do on these, first come first serve. I will open up the selling to facebook users in 24 hours.

To make an order send me a PM with your email address (that you use for paypal), address, desired colour and whether you have an FA-06 or 08 (so I can supply the correct logo panel). I'll then confirm availability, and send you paypal invoice for payment.

Price is US $75 + US $10 (international shipping)

The white/brown edging on the faceplate you see here is because it has not been stuck down.

Well done!

Are there any plans for the orange and grey one that you had talked about earlier?

Hey scramble, the Orange and Grey variant is something I'd love to do, but only if this batch all sells in a timely manner (each batch has a minimum order quantity, so in planning the 2nd batch I don't want to be stuck with a load of unsold faceplates and out of pocket)! I'm opening up the sales to facebook FA groups in a few hours so if they sell out from there then there will be a 2nd batch.

I'll wait for the second batch then. But if you are struggling to sell the first batch, please DM me and I'll buy one. All that hard work deserves some sales.

I'm not sure if there will be a second batch... or at least not for over 6 months. Sales are slower than expected - turns out over 50% of the pre-order people have sold their FA in the last 3 months! I'm hoping the FA-07 will re-ignite the requirement, I just need to get a load of "07" plates made up haha!

Myrk, if you're in UK the exchange rate really doesn't help with anything in Dollars either.

Maybe email the guys at Sonic State, and they could put an article on their site for you to promote them? I've seen stuff like that on there before, and they have a very good coverage.

Would be delighted to get one of your overlay for the "not-being-released-yet" FA 07. When do you think you could have them ready for shipping ?

Thanks for the feedback.

Kind regards,

Jeff went as far as to not only get the B&W overlays, but also change out the mod stick for the JD-XA black one! The only red part left on his FA now is the selector wheel!

So I went ahead and bought Myrk's overlay panels (red) for my FA 08. I am actually very happy about this decision! I think the overlays both protect the keyboard and also eliminate the issue with glossy surface. Here are some pictures of my FA 08 with panels applied:

Definately the surface looks better without the glare, IMHO.

Just received my red overlays for the FA-08. These are high quality panels that fit perfectly. Now I can use the keyboard in low light conditions and the surfaces are protected including the color screen. Fair price. No problems ordering and very prompt service now that they are based in the UK. Highly recommended!!

So, can I order panel overlays for my FA08 from Italy?
