Folktek

I came across this stuff yesterday, and was blown away! I love stand-alone noise makers, 'electroniums'.

You may like these, and these you can actually buy. Not quite as eccentric, but hand made one at a time, and the designer loves tubes. He's a friend of a friend.

Yeah the Folktek stuff is beautiful. I have one of Arius' insect pieces but I fucked it up. It's being repaired now. If I had silly loot I would pick up more of their instruments. I think they're really works of art.

I'll have a closer look at the insect ones.
Yes, i must admit i was a little shocked at some of the prices, but i think for most hand-made one of a kind things, it's justified. Obviously tons of meticulous man-hours go into those pieces, and as you point out, they are works of art. If i had the money, i'd love something like the delay/ sampler machine that Marilyn Manson has in his possession.
@dk- that's a great site, thanks for the link. There's some awesome stuff there. I love those old guages, dials & metres! There's some nice samples there, too.
