Synth DIY with Exploding Shed is great

We think synthesizers are the greatest thing on earth! They can be used to produce all sorts of sounds, to create beats or melodies. And sounds always change with the currently available technology. Even though there are many ready-to-use synthesizers available off the shelf, some more adventurous musicians (like us) prefer to build their own machines. And this is where we come in!
Exploding Shed is an online-shop specialised in synthesizer DIY. We provide a wide range of DIY kitspatch cables, cases & rails, panels & PCBs, standalone boutique synths and many tools and parts to build your own synth. Take a look at our variety of DIY kits and modules from well-known manufacturers such as Befaco, Music Thing Modular, Neutral Labs, LeafAudio, 4ms, Frequency Central and many more.
