Kit-A-Day Giveaway: Pico Paso and Nebulophone

Kit-A-Day Giveaway: Pico Paso and Nebulophone

We’re giving away amazing kits from our new Make: Ultimate Kit Guide EVERY DAY — thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including MakerBots!

To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.

Today’s giveaway items are the brand new Pico Paso and Nebulophone music synthesizer kits from Bleep Labs (an $89 value.) Here’s what MAKE author John Baichtal said about them in his reviews from the issue:

This tiny, handheld synth features two light sensors, two pots, and two buttons. It’s an easy build, even for newbies, soldering together very quickly with no difficult steps. I love how snug the little guy is, but this compactness comes at a price: no enclosure and no speaker. To hear the Pico Paso, you’ll need a ¼” mono cable to connect it to a mixer or amp.

Another small synth from Bleep Labs, the Nebulophone is more robust than the Pico Paso. It packs three potentiometer knobs, two buttons, an LED/light sensor combo that serves as an analog low-pass filter, and a unique piano-like series of pads on the PCB that you can control with an alligator clip. It has a programmable sequencer, outputs six octaves, and features six arpeggio modes. For remote control fun, you can clock the arpeggiator over IR. Like the Pico Paso, you’ll need to plug the synth into an amp to get any sound out of it.

To be eligible for today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below in this post. The entry period for today’s prize will be until 11:59pm PST tonight. We’ll choose one person at random, you’ll be notified by email, and you’ll have 48 hours to respond. The Winners List is kept on the Giveaway landing page. That’s it! No purchase necessary or anything else to do. Please leave only one comment per post. You can enter as many giveaways as you like until you win. This giveaway is for US residents only. You also must be 18 years old to enter (Kids: Ask your parents to enter). See the Kit-A-Day Giveaway landing page for full sweepstakes details and Official Rules.

Day 2 and 3 Giveaways: The winner of the Day 2 Defusable Clock giveaway was Thorton Wilson. Congratulations Thorton! The winner of Day 3 has been notified. They have 48 hours left to respond.
