CGS113- anyone in the UK/EU holding spare boards?

Post by muncky » Thu May 21, 2020 1:49 am

Hi all - on the hunt for last PCB for my next build - does anyone in the UK, or EU, have a CGS113 TWM PCB they’d be able to part with?

Thanks!

O.K. give us a clue, some of us refer to the Cat Girl Synth modules by their full name not the PCB type number.

I remember quite a few of the PCBs were long, thin and rarely had mounting holes, I built a few modules with redesigned PCBs or on stripboard so they would be fit for purpose.
The Steiner/Parker Synthacon filter is one I did definitely on a PCB, but I would have to dig out the ring binder that contains the build notes to know the type number. I have about 20 ring binders sorted by module function or instrument, etc.

TWM = Triple Wave Multiplier.
I had ordered mine directly from Elby in Australia. It took a while until it arrived, but what the heck. Mine is finished and I didn't order spare ones, so don't have a PCB I could give away though.

... why buy it for $100 when you can build it yourself for $150?

Sorry for the shorthand! And thanks for the Elby link / hoping to avoid the cost of postage being as much as the PCB, hence testing the waters.

Thanks

That was my concern, too. I solved it by ordering 5 or 6 PCBs instead of just one so the goods vs. postage ratio would be more favorable 8-) :mrgreen: .

I like your style 😁

Sadly, I’ve got everything else I think I need... :bang:

The very obvious answer to this is: Think again! 8-)
