The 4HP EAR Model 13 Mini Vactrol LPG KIT for Eurorack

The prices have not yet been determined, but the PCBs have been ordered and will be arriving shortly. ALl of the thru hole components are already in hand

We are producing 200 factory-assembled and 200 kits of VTL5C3 based Low Pass Gates closely resembling the behavior of the original Buchla design. Due to the largely unobtainium status of the proper vactrols this may by your last opportunity to purchase a Buchla based LPG. The factory pre-asembled modules will have green soldermask and metal photo process aluminum faceplates. The kits will have black soldermask PCBS and a FR4 black faceplate, of which there will be 2 variants - both priced differently:

A. A kit containing 1 Faceplate, 1 Main PCB, 1 Pot PCB, three jacks, three 1mm thick metal washers, 1 100K linear pot, 1 Davies-type push-on T18 black knob, 1 momentary pushbutton and a link where to purchase the SMT parts referencing both vendor and Mouser part numbers. Expect $12 in parts is purchased through Mouser.

B. Same as above including two vactrols. However, these will not be available until after the factory-built units have been completed.
