Think I'll need a panel too, if possible. (previously down for pcb/tubes) -- so pcb/tubes/panel.

edit: and sockets!

Eurorack kit (PCBs + Panel + Tubes + Sockets, without other parts)

I may consider upgrading to the full kit after reviewing a BOM.
I'm in the same boat, I'll possibly upgrade to full kit depending on BOM. Excited! :hyper: :hyper:

Unfortunately my befriended CNC cutting company have cut panels from wrong file after they asked for DXFs twice :omg:

Now I have 60 panels for non-diy version that won't be used anytime soon :hmm:

Upgraded PCBs will arrive this week. I have ordered only 20 sets due to lack of funds, with 20 more being made for next month. I'm forced to process non-eurorack kits in the first place since i'm currently searching new panel making company.

I feel you, it's a pain when things go not as smooth as planned.
Still it is nice to have this update, no worries for delay.

Sorry to hear about those issues Bard.

Am sure you will get plenty of interest when you are ready.

I would like to order a full Euro kit--sending PM now.

FYI Bard chose well for the tubes. These surplus Soviet types are also common-as-dirt and practically worthless in the USA and Europe. So the supply is essentially never-ending.

EAA91 = 6AL5, 6EB5 or 5726, plus several variations with different heater voltages.

6n3P = 2C51, 5670, 396A dual triode. Also some assorted variations, incl. the notorious 6386 remote-cutoff version which is so "hot", thanks to being used in the Fairchild 670 limiter, that JJ Electronic is still making a version of it. (albeit very expensive)
