I saw a video and an article I think in Premier Guitar. I too think it was pretty cool.

Any chances for a DIY kit for us DIY'ers?

Thanks for the props!

We're Whammy fanatics, in case you couldn't tell.

Molten MIDI 2 doesn't really lend itself as a DIY product, unless you just want to solder it together, and I doubt you could get it into a smaller enclosure.  There are also a few non-traditional tricks we used to get rid of wires, like using SMT pads to attach the encoder and running the MIDI jack solder lugs through holes, which would require some explanation.  It's not that hard to assemble, but it takes some practice to do it consistently.

That being said, we are toiling away at a groovy new chip for the DIY community (and manufacturers) that will be much more competitively priced than in the past with a whole lot more funk-tionality.

Stay tuned, and thanks again!
