Confused about a part? Backorders? Read the datasheets. The same brand resistor/capacitor/thingamajig could be found as cut tape or bulk, non-RoHS, etc. Or maybe a part (lets say DC-DC converters) might be made by Delta or Traco Power Solutions... Trimpot footprints?? Read the datasheet.

It is somewhat the opposite in the US. The shipping for most kits and cases from overseas is quite a bit, especially when buying multiple cases. :75: Somehow, I think it all evens out for everyone.

Mercury Magnetics/Mercury Vintage™ Transformer Restoration Service restores guitar transformers. I have bought their chokes before. The parts are top notch and they are always helpful with questions. They even make keyboard x-formers (OB-Xa, Rhodes, Wurlis). So the question would be how much are you...

I haven't found any worthwhile service manual.

It's cool that all of you have completed yours. Every time I want to start my crOwBX, I get frustrated while working on the BOM. Metal resistor price break threshold on Mouser? Hmm...

He's a straight up guy from Argentina and helped me restore my Minimoog. Just send him an email. His stuff arrives approximately two weeks after payment.

Yes, the distortion is from the recorder. That is why I was turning down the level mid-way through - apparently to no effect.

The reissue is $3499.99 (@ $500 discount because I purchased it at Moogfest) Unfortunately this is not true. The guitar center guys told me the same thing and I bought it, then later I got an email from zzounds saying preorder for 3499.99. I went back to ask and it was wrong info, the woman from Mo...

I was at the Popup Factory and you probably saw me on the drop cam. Anyway, I have an original Minimoog and I was so pleased after playing the demo, I bought one. But it was the financing that sold me on getting one - here's how it happened: I was intrigued, but didn't have the funds at that moment ...

No, kacperpawluk stepped forward with a version in the spirit of ElStroumpf's case. Take note that Gihaume's wooden end cheeks are not compatible with the new enclosure.

I finally ordered one after much procrastination! I always had one or two in my basket, but never followed through - same thing with the TTSH (and now that's gone :deadbanana:).

Luckily, I was able to score the last of ElSchtroumpf's metal enclosures (FYI he is a wiggler, too: ElSmurf).

Yes. Get one right now. Get the best variable speed one. Faster for hard items and slow for soft plastic-y things.
