Really impressive build for a dude with two right hands!

Any idea on kit pricing?

Sounds good! I'd like to make one myself too! When I was 7 years old I was bitten by 5 or 6 wasps at the same time, I deserve it! :hihi:
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, Where the heck is the ceiling? :hmm:

I've finally uploaded the rest of the freaky double right handed videos:)

At the moment i'm taking the synth apart so i can make some pictures of its guts. I'll also calculate the price for the kit asap.

I've no idea what an EDP Wasp is but that case and keyboard looks perfect for housing and hooking up to my Axoloti.

Here are two more photos of the case and the inside. (the pcb is the prototype, manualy made, for the future they will be professionaly produced)

Now some details.

JJC Wasp Kit will include: 1xPCB, 1x wooden panels, 1x metal casing and 5x stickers

PCB's will be professionaly produced in Slovenia. It's two sided and the exact copy of the EDP Wasp, not like the other copies on the internet. There is quite a diference:)

The wooden case will be handmade and adjusted for each synth. The side panels are made out of hardwood mahogany and protected with bee wax.

The casing is 1,5mm thick and is bent on 8 sides, made out of one single metal sheet with just 4 bolts to keep it in place. The casing adds a little weight but also adds some rubustness and ditches the toy like feel of the original. It's also sand coated so it's a bit more resistant to scratches, the surface is a little bit ruff to replicate the original.

There are five stickers:
1. Keyboard
2. Front panel
3. Logo+wasp
4. Back panel
5. Logo back

Still considering an option for just one sticker, the keyboard and print on the case.

The price for the kit will be 390eur

A complete wasp will cost you somewhere between 550-580eur or more depending where will you buy the parts and which parts will you want.

The Midi that i installed was bought here http://www.elby-designs.com/webtek/midi-interfaces/mini-midi-wasp/mini-midi-wasp.htm

Now that i've taken the synth apart i'll try to add some modifications and see iff they work. The mods will be then included in an extra PCB.

I hope this clears up a couple things

For more info and order please send me a PM

I have no specific timeframe. It will probably be available for some time, but it's not totally depending on me...

Had to ask -
Any possibility to mod this to fit Eurorack +
CV triggers, or would that be the other wasp?
Love it - had the original for a while in the days
I was drooling for a Prophet One!

Korg Poly-800, time and patience. and a soldering iron.

Hi,

I just made four CV inputs, three for filter one for PWM, added distortion, notch filter , two different internal PWM Lfo A-B and Ex.In.
When tested, everything worked superb:)

GilliRose:
The PCB is to big to fit in Eurorack but now you will have four CV in and Ex.in, a lot to modulate with other sources...Eurorack,+++

Mods will be included separatly.

So... here we are - finally read through the whole thread.
Sounds and looks pretty interesting.
Got a couple of questions:
Will there be any rack-mount version of it, without keyboard?
How does it compare to Elby Design's "Pixie"?
As I'm quite new to soldering (for now I only did an ARPIE MIDI Arpeggiator and a couple of tiny repairs on my Junos), would you think it's feasible for a "non-pro" solder-man?

Thanks and regards,
F.

Hi FlavioB

No, there will be just case version of it. I wanted to look nice as it deserves:)
It has similar design as Pixie but different voltage operation.
It is not difficoult to make it, you will get all the instructions:) but you will need an osciloscope or counter mater at least for Lfo.

Best

Sure, I can't say anything against your decision and the design: looks really nice!
It has similar design as Pixie but different voltage operation.
What means "similar" and in what terms "different voltage operation"? Can you explain, please?

Uhg... I don't have oscilloscope or the other tool, but a friend of mine does... might be worth a try, eventually.
When do you think the shipment will be ready? How do you proceed? Like collecting orders and then produce, or you already produce an amount of kits and then sell them?

Thanks,
F.

Is it possible to have this kit without the wooden casing?
I'm a carpenter and i can make 1 myself.

Original Wasp works on +5v, Pixie on +9v
Similar means that is a copy of Wasp with some different parts as the
Original and Pixie has a few others features...try to look at
both schematics to see the difference.
The shipping will have a little delay. I had to add a few more cooper holes for easier modification ( 4x CV, ex in....)
Send me the PM or mail to confirm that you are interested?
I'll make a certain amount of kits for sell, probably'll be limited
like wasp Deluxe:) . Not sure yet?

Efexor
I'm selling only a full kit, there is someone who selling just PCB +++
Maybe try to contact him...
