If you plan to build your self/just need a panel, please don’t ask me questions about the functionality of the modules. All your questions can be answered by reading http://www.cgs.synth.net
If you want me to build for you, Please feel free to ask me questions about the functionality of the modules.
This website exists to help communicate to & organize The Church Of The Super Serge workshop which happens @ Robotspeak on Haight st. every 3rd saturday of the month. 12:00pm to 6:00pm with FREE performance at 2:00pm every meeting.
remaining 3rd Saturdays this year:
5/18/2013, 6/15/2013, 7/20/2013, 8/17/2013, 9/21/2013, 10/19/2013, 11/16/2013, 12/21/2013
Some people from out of town have found us and purchased some completed Synths from us as well as Panels with populated PCBs. That kind of love is gratefully accepted as support for the Cause / Tithing for The Church Of The Super Serge.
For those of you reading this from out of town I strongly urge you to make a pilgrimage to the Church Of The Super Serge Workshop for the performances, as we are quickly becoming a school of Serge patching via our FREE in store performances & casual post performance jam /sessions.
What We offer:
Factory Made Serge panels $100- ( If you would like to attend The workshop @ Robotspeak Contact Steve & buy a Panel)
If you just want a panel / dont want to solder at the store / dont need help, you can get one from me.
Custom Etched Serge panels $250- We will produce custom etched Serge panels but only including the modules represented in our catalog & with 70s Panel art. So by “custom” that means Custom selection of modules.
If you need super creative customization (modules not on the catalog or modified layouts) I can do that but It will cost an additional $100- for design and consultation driving the final cost of the etched panel up to $350- (recommended for rock stars only)
We will no longer provide uni/individual 4u panels for new members/ I don’t want to start any more systems that will require me to etch every module as I go. Just trying to limit my interactions with the chemicals after over a year of practically eating aluminum for lunch. Of course I will honor the Uni panel boats that have already been started and help complete them. Also if you just need to fill a space next to a Serge panel / add a module to your suitcase we can do Uni for that no problem.
If you buy a panel from Steve & Don’t need me to populate the PCBs for you, you can buy them from http://www.cgs.synth.net/, Source your own parts & build your self. The Panel will work as your ticket / pass to solder in the back room of the store for the days of the workshop. Be warned, If you populate the boards your self We are not obliged to De-bug for you & ****** CGS PCB ASSEMBLY IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS****
This option is recommended for the seasoned SDIYers only
The Circuit Masta Kev may fix your self populated PCBs for a price if the board you hand him is not too much of a mess / completely destroyed. Whatever he charges for debugging would be between you and him.
Populated CGS/ Serge PCBs
I populate and test PCBs for the workshop. The idea is once you have a panel you can buy populated PCBs from me & wire them your self at the workshop. We can teach you how to wire no problem.
A person can buy one populated PCB per month or get them all at once. So please do not feel that we are trying to lock you in by selling you a Serge panel. No locking, only helping.
Also if you want to learn some DIY but dont want life to be too much of a challenge I can potentially only populate the advanced PCBs for you & you can go about building the Peak & Trough, Dual Voltage Processors/ Mixers your self If you like, but you would have to source your own parts & PCBs for those.
Either way, Proceed “at your own pace as pocket books allow”.
The Populated PCBs from me are guaranteed to work. If it doesn’t for you upon first wiring. I will take it home and fix it for ZERO extra cost.
If you make (PAPERFACE!) or source your own panel & buy the populated PCBs from me, you are also welcome to solder at the store on the day of the workshop. BOCGS panel owners welcome. / as long as you buy one or the other from us we will make a space for you in the soldering dungeon.
Completed Serge Synth Panels / Ready to play
Just want to buy one ?
We will build the whole thing for you, 4 week turn around. Im giving out low quotes but will only honor them for the rest of 2013. Contact me at the email at the bottom of this post for a ready to play panel.
A custom job (one that does not use a factory panel) would of course be subject to the Price list & etched Panel fees.
More modules will be added to the price list soon enough, More panels will be added to the factory line up.
