We are fans of "west coast" synthesis, and specifically Serge and Buchla. Folks like Ken Stone and Roman Filippov have done a great service by making PCBs for some of these classic designs available to the DIY community. We sell a few of our own PCBs based on early 100-series Buchla synthesizer modules. Long out of production, original 100 series modules fetch collector's prices; these PCBs allow folks to experiment with these wonderful "obsolete" circuits.
- Compendium of technical information on the 100 and 200 series Buchla synths: 70+ pages on all documented modules, with pictures, descriptions, and schematics... as well as links to DIY resources like PCB/kit suppliers and build reports. It's great to be part of a community helping to make these vintage instruments available again!
All our PCBs are provided on an as-is basis for personal use only. We offer PCBs, schematics, BOMs & build notes, and FPD files for front panels (see below); you will have to source parts and assemble them yourself. These are minimally supported projects meant for experienced DIYers; you need to be able to read schematics, source parts, stuff and solder the boards, wire off-board components, troubleshoot, and figure out the mechanical aspects such as front panels and housing.
PCBs are $15.00@/single, $25.00@/dual; ppd in the US, additional $10.00 postage/handling (per order) outside the US – international customers are also responsible for any import tariffs or fees. Use the Paypal "Add to Cart" buttons to purchase. Make sure your shipping address is included in the paypal transaction.
