This project was built from a kit that I got from fellow electro artist Michael Victor at EM2014’s swap meet. Michael had the unbuilt kit in the original shipping envelope, a special edition model from Steim’s 2011 run.

The kit went together pretty quickly with few issues, but I do not have a case for it yet. This circuit is very unpredictable, and the squeals it creates are head-rattling at times. Best used with caution!
