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. Use the Paypal "Add to Cart" buttons to purchase. Make sure your shipping address is included in the paypal transaction.
