I admit it: I'm a DIYer. Not the crafty, scrapbooking type of DIY, I'm talking more like homemade spirits and homemade things with wires on them. So when I came across this little synth kit, I just had to share, especially since you're probably all just digging into our Circuit-Bending 101 feature right about now and you probably have building noisy things on the brain...

 
The Bleep Electro Synth Kit includes everything you need to build your own synth, including a 556 Integrated Circuit, jumper wires, prototyping breadboard, and speaker. Once you finish assembling the kit (it should take about an hour), create square waves and use the two control potentiometers to alter the waves’ frequency and width to make all sorts of fantastic noises. All of the parts come bundled in a tidy little bag; add a 9V battery and you’re good to go. $25 at bleep.com.
 
If you have some rad DIY projects, we'd love to see them. Send pics to ElectronicMusician@musicplayer.com and tell us a little bit about your project, and we just might print our faves in an upcoming issue. Tweak away, tweakers!—Sarah Jones
