Thonk at Brighton Mini Maker Faire this weekend

I’m exhibiting at Brighton Mini Maker Faire this Saturday (7th September) – Come along!

I’ll have my modular system burbling away to itself, stock for sale and working versions of many of the module kits I’ve sold to date. I’ll also have final prototypes of the ALM SID GUTS Eurorack module, which uses the classic Commodore64 SID sound chip.

It costs £5 to get in for adults, tickets are available on the door but you can avoid queues by booking in advance. Kids under 16 go free.

There are loads of  cool music and synth projects, hardware hacking, robots, Raspberry PI, 3D printers, submarines and even crazy bio-tech stuff. As well as just wandering around in an amazed daze, you can take part in practical workshops on the Sunday too. Thonk customers should feel at home!

We have a restock of Expert Sleepers Glow In The Dark patch cables, in a larger range of new sizes (15, 30, 45 & 60cm).

80cm cables are now discontinued so once they’re gone, they’re gone.

We are also stocking the Expert Sleepers ‘Floating Ring’ cables, which are specifically designed for use with Expert Sleepers eurorack modules,  DC-Coupled interfaces and CV capable software such as Silent Way, Motu Volta, Max-MSP etc. These cables are also a great way of getting external audio into your modular.

The Turing Machine Voltages and Pulses expanders are in stock. Voltages is already almost sold out, but It’ll be back on sale at the end of July.

Also in stock, Thomas White LPG PCBs, Make: Analog Synthesizers book, Black Davies clone Knobs and Blue Banana plugs.

Last Few Turing Machine Kits on sale (AT-AT-AT and VERTER panels too)

If you check out the shop section of the site you’ll find the remaining few kits from the first batch of Turing Machine modules, a fresh run of AT-AT-AT panels and a brand new run of VERTER panels. AT-AT-AT and VERTER full kits will follow in the new year.

These will be the last additions to the site in 2012. We have SO MUCH planned for next year though, and we’ll be stocking products from some very familiar names.  2013 is going to be a very busy year at Thonk.

Happy holidays.

Now stocking PJ301BM Jacks

We are now stocking the 3.5mm jacks commonly known as ‘Fight of Harmony’ or ‘Erthenvar’ jacks.

This is the latest version of the part, redeveloped by the manufacturer in November 2012 to provide very reliable switch contacting.

I will be using these jacks in the six kits I have lined up for sale in the first half of 2013. It’s going to be a good year!
