Komegatone Case
Komegatone Panel

No better way to add character to a new synth than by casing it up in an enclosure with its own history -

This is a PAiA fatman synth kit built into an old suitcase that my grandmother used to store her oil paints. The face panel is laser etched/cut from transparent red acrylic.

Of course laser-etching your own front panel helps too.
