How many hours is this going to take to build? $2500 is $50 an hour for 50 hours. I was thinking 10 hours to build one that includes a parts kit. I'm thinking how much would I earn if I worked a factory assembling these.

I think $2500 includes taxes and the wooden case with tolex finish.

But besides that, i think, the more builders there will be, the lower the prices for commision will be. And there are a lot of willing builders i guess.

I am probably not "the benchmark", but it takes me 10 hours or so to build and assemble a Klee with one of NV's kits, which is much smaller than this. (the first one I built took nearly 20).

Perhaps after I have done a couple of these I could be closer to that fast, but I'd be shocked if I got anywhere near 15 hours even.

And yes, the first one I build will be mine, so I make all my mistakes and learning, and figuring out faster ways to do things on my own :-D

My low time estimate is based on a well thought out kit, not 95% of the parts needed all mixed together in one bag. And not a learn as you go thing. It is a big board but has vast areas with no components. And no panel wiring. Sourcing your own parts would add a few hours for sure. Same with tranny matching. This seems easier that a Serge panel to me. Similar parts count but no wiring. And my time estimate is not for the first build,but rather how long it would take if you built these all day every day. Can't really charge someone to learn how to assemble one.

Portland, OR here. Building one for myself, and would be happy to build for others (after I finish mine of course!) Done some DIY stuff, and for about a year I was pinball repair technician, which really allowed me to hone in my soldering/diagnostic skills.

Thanks for the offer - I won't ruin the lovely electronics by trying it myself though. I want to buy a well made one in a nice enclosure (kind of suitcase/flightcase would be cool!). But maybe some other Swiss wiggler might take you up on it. The more the better!

I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and am happy to build these for anyone (within reason). I've been soldering since the early 80s and am an electrical engineer by profession.

I also have a custom woodworking shop and would also entertain requests for cases made out of any wood and finish you can dream of - or you can leave the details up to me.

Located in Boston and am thinking of building at least one or two for myself, let me know if you need one! Anybody thinking of doing a wood case in the area?

By the time I start building mine, I'll be living in Toronto, knock on wood. We should get a party going.

I'm living in Mannheim, Germany.
By the way, I'm also doing Circuit Bending/ Modding jobs...

Can build for others, located in central Switzerland (near Luzern).
You provide all the parts, I provide the soldering and testing workforce.
Not building custom cases, so either you provide the original enclosure or
one that matches 1:1 the mount points.

Prices to be discussed based on final parts price, quantity of work to be delivered (all soldering, partial soldering, etc) and actual building time of
the first one.

Nothing, because it's summer and I don't build!

Human Comparator 2600 Builder in UK

Post by seanzoega » Tue Nov 26, 2013 7:00 pm

Hi, I am offering to build the Human Comparator 2600 and personally deliver for £2250. This will include the Human Comparator Case and will be tested/calibrated by James at Synth Repair Services. James shall also do the PAT testing to ensure electrical safety (compulsory if you are going to use the synth in a commercial environment)

I have been building/designing/playing synths since I bought my first WASP (new!) and have a degree in electronics. I have my own ARP 2600 so shall be evaluating the HC2600 with the original as I go. I started out as a student engineer at EMS (long time ago!) and have been a synth geek ever since.

I shall be asking for a non-refundable deposit of £100 from Customers just so I'm covered if people change their mind.
