I repaired a 212 Dodeca module and I also built a Dodeca module.  The customer sent me a complete kit of parts and I assembled and tested the module.  Many of the components are sourced through Mouser but specialized parts, panel, knobs, and PCBs have specific sourcing requirements.

A bit off topic but I'm trying to gather some feedback about my very first Paypal claim after years in business from a well known guy in the Buchla User Groups.

The customer bought a few pots and some other stuff from my webshop a while back and notified me after a while that his shipment didn't arrive.
He chose the "tracked mail - not insured" option because it is the cheapest available shipping method. Tracked mail - not insured - what does that mean ? Exactly whats written there! You can track your shipment but in case the shipment gets lost nobody will get any money back.
This shipping method usually works fine for most and this guy also never had a bad experience with this shipping method.
There was another shipment that we thought got lost on its way to him and as a good customer I replaced this order for him at my cost even though he chose the to get his order shipped without any insurance. Fortunately this shipment came back to me a while later because Swedish Post wasn't able to notify the buyer.

The guy wrote me on FB a while back and got rude when I explained him that I won't replace the second lost shipment.
He actually thinks I have to take responsibility for this lost shipment even though he chose the cheapest shipping option with no insurance. Trying to explain him that it doesn't work that way didn't help at all. He just doesn't take responsibility for his own shipping choice.

As mentioned above I just got my very first Paypal claim now and I'm really thinking of stopping to offer the "tracked mail" service for everybody even though it usually works fine for most.
If any shop owner needs some details to save your business from guys like him, send a PM.

What do you guys think about that case ?

Cheers
Steffen

212 Dodeca update:

This is what it looks like when you misalined the headers for PCB1 and PCB2 and still want to test funcionality 😂
Other than that the unit works fine:
Noise Source - works
Envelope Detector - works
Random Voltage Source - works
Stored Random Voltage - works
Balanced Modulator - works
Triple Envelope Generator - works
VCF - works
Triple Lopass Gate - works
Mixer - works

Still have to check the preamp, Output Amp and the main outputs.

Will check those today and get new PCBs done with the correct header alignment.

212 Dodeca test units...almost finished...
Should have them finished in 2 days.
The PCB set will include a 24V DC converter.
Price will be around 300€ incl, German VAT (19%). No VAT for business or non-Europe customers.
All of Dave Brown‘s mods included. My panels also have an additional hole for the reverb wet/dry pot

New daughterboards for MARF rev2 are on the way to me.
Will ship them to my customers who bought a full build or PCB sets in about a week. Built units will take a bit longer.

Please send a mail to [email protected] if you bought PCBs or full build within the last 365 days. You‘ll receive the new boards for free. Built boards for customers who bought a finished MARF. Unbuilt PCBs for my PCB customers.
Want to mention that Steve Steven Barsky did an awesome job to help with MARF rev2 issues. His new firmware release improves CV jitter by software even more. Love you Steve !!!!

Built units will have the latest firmware.

Cheers
Steffen

Received supernice 212 Dodeca and 291 filter PCBs today.
Off to work building 2 units to check if everything works as it should. Will be up in my store as soon as I now they work.
Panels are already available @ samodular.com

Updated my shop for a few more choices of wood / finish for Buchla format case cheeks.
1. raw plywood
2. raw walnut if you prefer to apply your own finish
3. oiled walnut. Multiple layers of oil applied with sanding in between for a nice satin finish.

Will soon add an angled 2-tier version.

Cheers
Steffen

14/06/2020

New daughterboards for the MARF rev2 will be available soon.
The CV jitter on the outputs when using the full range on voltage sliders is much improved.
All of my customers who bought a MARF PCB set within the last 365 days will receive the new daughterboard for free.
No need to buy another STM32 microcontroller card as the chip is already on board.
Please send a PM or email to get your new daughterboard (PCB2)
Please note that this daughterboard will only work with the 248 PCB set bought from SAmodular.

Cheers
Steffen

Any interest for 12U Buchla format folding cases ?
As many of you know I'm offering a wide range of Buchla format stuff including boats, cases etc. and once in a while people ask for 12U folding cases just like the pictured 18U model.
While I have 2 different versions of 4U boats in stock they are deeper than the original 203 style design to allow busboards below superdeep modules like the 208 Easel but a 12U system made of those deep boats looks a bit bulky. So I'm checking interest to get a new batch of shallower 4U boats done at least for the bottom and the top row. I also have extra-deep 203 style 4U boats that can be used for the middle section to house a 208.
I will for sure have my own revision made including black powder coating, threaded inserts (no Tinnerman nuts and screws) and modifications to allow short interconnection cables to reduce capacitance and noise in the system.
The system will also have my own revision of busboards as the original 203 design still sold at some spots are noisy as hell.
The complete system will have walnut cheeks that are oiled multiple times for a superb finish.

Please let me know what you think. Cheers - Steffen

Updated my store for the newest revision of 5U boats and the Buchla format 291 panels.
By the way: Offering a BEST PRICE guarantee for panels ! Let me know if you can find them cheaper elsewhere 😉

Whats new with the 5U revision ? Moved the rectangular cable holes on a different position to allow much shorter interconnection cables between boats. Also added a separate cutout for the firmware / preset card reader.
4 versions available for each tier of a 2-row / 3-row or 5-row case.
Cheers
Steffen

Finally something for my Serge friends:
Planning to release black powder coated or anodized Serge boats that will work with my Buchla 203 Style case cheeks and regular rack ears.
Anything I should add in terms of cutouts for power distribution ?
Thanks for any input.

Whats the biggest case you can build? I need 320 or more In one case. Is it possible?
hey there, I was wondering if the Buchla boats come with rack ears. Could you please let me know? Thanks!
hi ! do u also make cases for serge panels ?
Hi Steffen - You have incoming PM and email.
Hi there, I tried contacting you on your site, but it wouldn’t send the email. Anyways, I’m interested in your white Doepfer-powered 104hp 6U eurorack case and was wondering if you had any available, as well as if you had the dimensions? Thx!
hey post pictures of my 30U please:)
do you also build cases with treaded m3 instead of m3 screws?
