New Bastl DIY module kits announced

Czech electronic instrument maker Bastl has released its first batch of modules in DIY kit form.

We first saw the oak-panelled modules at MusikMesse this year and instantly fell in love with the wooden facade. Well, now the wait for a release is over and Bastl is giving everyone the opportunity to build their own module.

The first modules to be released are:

  • Tea Kick - more than just a drum - DIY Kit: €70
  • Noise Square - noise and square source - DIY Kit: €70
  • grandPa - granular sampler - DIY Kit: €143
  • Skis - dual decay + vca - DIY Kit: €70
  • ABC - 6 channel mixer - DIY Kit: €62
  • Come to daddy - repair service for kits - €25

If you bodge up your build, or you're not quite brave enough to wield your own soldering iron, then you can send the kit back to Bastl and they will build or repair the kit for you for just €25.

Return shipping is free if the 'Come to daddy' service is paid for within a month of purchasing the module in question.

All five modules and the repair/build option are available on the Noise.Kitchen site.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
