MAKE Flickr photo pool member Fibra writes – “This is homebuilt CrackleBox. Probably the oldest analog glitch/noise synthesizer. It is based on very rare opamp IC 709. Everything is housed in the cuban cigar box. I cut out oval “Romeo & Julieta” logo from the top cover and glued hand shaped steel grid cone for speaker protection. For touchpad contacts I used 7 screws (original STEIM box has 6) forming V for ergonomicaly 2 hand playing smilar as on the original box built in 1970ties by STEIM.”Link.
