The Gakken SX-150 Analog Synthesizer Kit from the Maker shed is a really fun kit to build, mod, and hack. The first time I tried one out was at Maker Faire in 2008 and I was really impressed by the sound this little synth kit was able to produce.

Collin did an excellent video review of this cool little synth a while back on the blog. Check out the custom “pick” buttons he added to the stock kit.
