Hey, I'll build for people in SMT and through hole, 5U or 3U format, doesn't matter.

I will also be willing to make cases within the near future - acquiring woodworking tools at this time.

I'm in the Provo UT area.

Anyone in the US build full custom synths? I’m interested in commissioning something like a stripped down, durable Roland sh-1000. All I’m looking for is 2 vco’s, a filter, a simple envelope generator (attack & decay), and two LFO’s and a small keybed. 37 keys would be fine.

I have experience soldering, but I’m not a woodworker so I’m not sure how I’d pull off building a case and wiring a keyboard.

More complex than what you're looking for, but have you seen this?

Hello there,

so because i got a lot of fun at building up my little modular, i would like to offer you building up modules for you.

I build several Mutable Instruments Modules (also the Ambika and some Shruthis), some MFOS stuff, worked a while at a music store where i repaired digital pianos on component basis and did some modifications to a lot of stuff which i am using to make some kind of music.

so basically, i got a nice hot air station and a nice soldering iron and all the equipment, that is needed for tasks like this and i know how to handle them. So if someone is interessted just write me a message.

- I am located in germany and could ship within europe

best greetings!
I cannot send messages for some reason, please send an email to pfzzz.pfzzz[at]gmail, need to build some modules

Hi All,

I am just getting into EuroRack and I have a Pittsburgh Modular MIDI3 - bought it second hand, it is my first extender module for a DFAM and M32 combo. Using it with a RowPower 30. It wasnt working when it arrived, I think I tried to power into the wrong connector (the extender connector?) located the right one, and still no luck to power it up.

In desperation I flipped the power cable and got the grey smoke of death. Contacted Pitsburgh Mod who said they could sort it, but I am near Manchester in the UK so it isn’t practical to send it off. Whilst I could probably have a pop at it myself… think I have done enough damage as it is!

Is there a decent EuroRack medic I could post it to? Possibly the RowPower too so I can get a full bill of health before I get it back? I am thinking there must be some self isolating engineers in here now! :)

Thanks in advance.

I've sent you a PM. I've built through hole and smd, early days: turing machines and FC monoblock modules etc. Recently: Plaits, SMR, Performer sequencers and Stages, rings, Elements and so on.
I'm based in Kent but I've finished/repaired modules built by a guy not far from you, Ben Parsons in Prestwich, you may not of heard of him but it's a small world.
