Thank you very much for making this possible. :bacon:

boards are huge (especially 5u one) and there are 3 of them
if you compare to say toppobrillo's 281s - 266 boards are 6 times bigger in buchla format, 8 times - in 5U format
i think the price is fair, based on the size of the boards, the variety of formats roman's making, the relatively niche market, and the complexity. i spent a couple days once taking a crack at laying out this project and gave up... was more than happy to pay roman for his efforts. i'm sure he'll wind up making less than kopecs/hour...

If you compare the size and complexity of these 3 PCBs to other offerings on sale here you would see they are in fact quite reasonably priced. And, compare them to CGS Serge PCBs (single sided only!) at $30...

Amen to that. Plus Roman has put in features such as slotted cutouts for jack mounting tabs which would have been expensive to do. A lot of commercial projects just have round holes for tabs which soak up solder and don't hold the jacks in the right position while soldering. I was sceptical of the price myself but for what you get I think these are a bargain.

So you'd be happy to tackle a project of this complexity entirely in 0805 surfacemount then... :despair:

Roman,

did you receive the Toppobrillo PCBS and blue Buchla knobs that I sent to you a couple months back?

I'm still waiting for my set of Buchla 266 PCBs. I haven't been on the forum in a while, and haven't given it a lot of thought in some time; But it's been a long time now, and I haven't received any replies to my PMs.

Ken's old stock is single sided, all new ones are double...
all $30 pcb's are licensed from Serge and $10 goes straight to Serge....
but this is old news.....

imo the offered pcb's are a moneygetter and easy way to earn money with company related profits which aren't really SDIY (big mass) orientated.....
enough said.....
back ontopic!

Really? With through plated holes as well? I've yet to see any, and I just bought some more PCBs from Ken recently.

Hi Roman,
Perhaps it is a typo, but I ordered 2x5U, 1xBuchla. (Not 1x5U, 1xBuchla.)
Could you confirm? Thanks!

i haven't shipped out orders (+addons) made last maybe 7-10 days
if you don't find your name in a list or quantity is incorrect - please PM me, i could miss something

going to finish testing EURO today and upload BOMS/SCHEMs then. DO NOT start the assembly of EURO version before that, it has a small but important issue with power, it has to be corrected before you solder anything.

Ha! Yesterday while I was on my way to buy pelmeni for dinner at the Stolichniy / Столичный I received the delivery notice that I can pick up my boards at the post office today. Good timing!

Boards looking great! Спасибо!
