  1. [FS] sammichSID, sammichFM, & Shruthi-1

    They're all gone (except the SID which was likely damaged in transit or broken before it left her house. Who knows, still trying to figure that mess out. Either way. it's not available). Thanks everyone.
  2. [FS] sammichSID, sammichFM, & Shruthi-1

    Sale pending for the SID, FM is still available. So is the Shruthi if anyone is interested in that.
  3. [FS] sammichSID, sammichFM, & Shruthi-1

    If it's OK with TK and everyone else involved, I'd like to sell this sammichSID and sammichFM. I built them for my ex-gf (don't worry, we're still on good terms) and she's having some financial difficulties right now that neccessitate the sale.     Link to photo sets here:   and here:   She's also got a stock Shruthi-1 with an SMR-4 filterboard that she's looking to get rid of.   photos here:

    Yea, looks good. The white button caps are pretty sweet as well.

    I can confirm that the backlight pot has no effect on the display. Weird. I hadn't noticed that when I first assembled it. Mine is pretty bright though. Can you post a photo of yours? If we compare them we might be able to determine if yours is oddly dark, mine is oddly bright, or if they are the same and we just have different definitions of bright and dark.

    Wilba hooked me up with that display so I don't have an order form or packing slip around that has the model number on it, but I think it's safe to assume they are the same. I don't recall mine being particularly responsive to changes on the dimmer control. I built that one for my girlfriend and it's now living in her studio on the other side of town so I can't check it out at the moment. The display being kind of dark compared to the LEDs was part of the reason why I painted the LEDs in the first place though. I'll check out the backlight pot this evening and let you know what I come up with.

    The Optrex display is really impressive, you're going to love it. Wilba & nILS did a good thing by making sure the pcb is set-up to accept both the optrex and standard displays. Hooray for that.

    LOL. The Siempre La Luna Edition, awesome. It certainly has a nice ring to it. I like the look of it so much that I went back and blanked the LEDs on my sammichSID too. I hate to say it though, I think the blanked-out LEDs are the crucial bit of the SLL edition.
