Hardwood Side Panel Kickstarter for the Roland Jupiter-X Synthesizer

You can find the kickstarter here.

These are from Rock Manor Studios who have a shop on Reverb currently offering side panels for other synths.

Some info from the kickstarter:

"Roland's Jupiter-X Synthesizer sounds amazing - bringing us synth enthusiasts classic vintage sounds of the 80s and 90s. One thing that is missing, however, is the warmth of premium hardwood sides that are a hallmark of vintage synths. So I've started this Kickstarter to raise just enough capital to acquire the wood from a mill in Wisconsin and machine limited quantities from my product shop near Atlanta.

As soon as the project funds, the wood stock will be acquired and production will begin within a week. Panels will begin shipping a few days later in the order received - around a dozen per day - which targets the last batch made shipping in November. We'll remain equipped to handle any replacements necessary, and likely continue to make and sell these through other channels.

I'm a 20 year veteran product designer in the digital domain, and the son of a woodworker who taught me the craft since a young age. I own my own shop with all the necessary tools and skills to machine repeatable precision components, finish to furniture grade quality, and design packaging for a variety of market objectives. As a music lover and synth geek, I've began using my resources to produce panels for the synths I own during the COVID19 lockdown, and recently began producing small batches to fulfill consumer requests for Moog, Roland, Behringer and Euroracks.

We frequently produce small batches of other synth panels, mounts and accessories for sale from our Reverb store."
