TTSH Rare Parts Kit & Circuit Abbey Beginner Kit


We have new kits to suit all price ranges and abilities this week.

First we have the Circuit Abbey ‘4×4 Mult’ Kit. This is the perfect kit for beginners. It’s simple and quick to construct, inexpensive & doesn’t require any special tools;  just a soldering iron and solder.

… and at last we have a restock on the TTSH ‘Rare Parts Kit’ and also the ‘Synth Tech’ style knobs, which are now cheaper and have bulk discount options.

TouellSkouarn Strakal Brulu

Strakal-Product-ShotI have just opened a new Wishlist for the Strakal Brulu, a fantastic Germanium Fuzz module kit from TouellSkouarn. It uses two vintage Soviet NOS Germanium Transistors and it is a dirty, dirty thing.

It’s going to be produced in a very limited batch and the vintage components need to be tested and graded one by one before packing in kits.

Due to this it’ll be released in small batches which will be offered up to people in the order they join the wishlist.

Also new in stock:

A few more new arrivals

A few more new products came into stock today.

IC Extractor knob-insert-for-diy-knobs Emerson_Banana_Jacks

Firstly we have this fantastic Japanese IC Extractor tool. Whilst preparing the SID GUTS DIY kits it became clear that an IC extractor tool becomes fairly indispensable for pulling chips with 28 pins (there are two on the SID). My Tool OCD led me to try loads of the cheaper tools out there and frankly… they all suck! This precision Japanese tool is head and shoulders above the rest so seemed like a perfect addition to the store. This tool will be made available as a specific option on the SID GUTS DIY kit at a reduced price, so if you’re waiting for SID you might want to hold off buying it… we’re very close.

Next up are these brass knob inserts, these are the same internals you’ll find in the Davies 1900h clone knobs I stock, these are the perfect base to DIY your own knobs from wood, clay, sugru.. or even 3d printed? They are also an adequate solution to fitting a knob in a very small space.

Red and Blue Emerson Banana Jacks are back in stock and I now have bulk discounts on Red, Blue and Black banana jacks.

Brighton Modular Meet – Saturday November 16th 2013

The Brighton Modular meet is a great place to check out Thonk goods and I’ll be bringing plenty of stock. Previous meets have featured a fine array of systems, including Eurorack, 5U, Buchla, Serge and BugBrand.

If you can’t see the embedded video, click here.

It’ll also be a great opportunity to listen to the the forthcoming Music Thing Modular Spring Reverb DIY kit in action and meet the designer Tom Whitwell.

The event is held at Sussex University. There is an abundance of free parking right next to the venue and it’s easy to load and unload equipment, with plenty of help on hand if you bring heavy gear. If you have any questions drop me a line or check out the thread on Muffwiggler.
