PM me if you are in the US and would build a Per|former for me. I have boards and can ship parts to you. I would try to build it but I want a module to actually work for a change. PM me your rates if interested.

Looking for somebody to get my NLC 8hp triple sloths in working order and tell me where I messed up. I've built SMD NLC modules before, but I bit off more than I can chew on this one.

PM me your rates

Edit - I found somebody. Thanks for the messages everybody!

I have a euro Klee build that I screwed up somehow ~3 years ago. I'm looking for someone to troubleshoot/fix it if possible. Here is the start of my troubleshooting in the main Klee thread if you want to see what is wrong and what I've done to try and figure it out with NV's gracious help. In US. Please PM me your rates. Thank you.

I have a lyra8 pcb + flounderguts expander pcbs/panel and most/all components sourced. I've been trying to sell it since I don't have the time to build it, but the other option is to find someone willing to take build it. Please PM me with info on your rates if you might be interested in building this for me.

Anyone in NYC? I have a Nava 909 kit I [mostly] built, but am having some issues and want someone to finish troubleshooting as I just do not have the time. Please PM me and I'm happy to describe further :-)

Looking for someone who can laser-cut a top panel for the Bastl 60knobs for me, without any of the print on it. Got a used one a bit ago with all of the drum machine labels on it and would love a blank slate instead!

If anyone here would be willing to put together a BJF Universal Reverb Driver for me, please send me a PM. I contacted PrimoFX to see if I could get an assembled unit but unfortunately they do not build kits to order.

Could anyone diagnose and fix a problem with a Random*source VCFQ? I'm considering buying a broken one if the repair is possible.

While I'm an experienced DIY-er, I just can't get along with SMT for a variety of reasons. I can do a dozen SMT decoupling caps or so, or a couple ICs, but beyond that it just takes way too long and is too stressful. I am, however, comfortable debugging and fixing things with SMT.

I'd love to find an experienced builder in the US (preferably Southern California) who would be willing to do some SMT soldering for me. I'd like to (and prefer) to take care of the through-hole work and final assembly stuff myself.

Things I have ready-to-go or have in mind:
- FoH Plague Bearer, IMP, Choices [which will eventually go behind frac panels]
- Deckard's Dream SMT caps
- MidiBox Seq V4+ SMT parts

If you're interested, please PM me to discuss details, fees, etc. Thanks!

I'm new here and was directed to this forum as I am looking for someone who has the skills and experience with synth builds from kits. I am looking for someone located in the U.S. I'm in Minnesota. Would love to chat with anyone who may have experience that may be for hire. Thanks!

Looking for someone to help with a new module design. Perhaps first in a family of modules.

This will hopefully be commercial, and can pay reasonable rates.

PM me if of interest and I can give more detail. I'm based in Cambridge UK.

So about 6 months ago I put out feelers for a builder and had a few different responses from people. Ultimately after a bit of back n forth I went w Nick Thorburn now I live in Ohio and Nick is in Ontario so the transport of modules was a bit pricey but I have to say it was worth every penny. I've built quite a few modules on my own but when it comes to SMd these ol eyes just aren't up to the task, I was afraid I'd mess something up so I entrusted the task to Nick and he did a stellar job. He was always very communicative and responsive to all my inquiries, so all you guys and gals w your NLC kits and whatever else, if you need a top notch builder with an exceptional skillset for your next module dont hesitate to contact Nick. He's an excellent builder and one heck of a good dude to boot!
