General specifications of components
supplied in most of our kits

  • Component Kits include all pcb components required to dress the relevant pcb. They do not contain any panel components such as pots, sockets, switches or LEDs.
  • IC Socket kits contain sufficient machined turned IC sockets to mount every IC on the board.
  • Hardware Kits contain panel components including pots, switches and LEDs. Some Hardware Kits also include knobs similar to those used in MOTM, OAKLEY and some MOOG modules.
  • We can also supply just specialised components such as the TEMPCO resistors, FET transistors and IC's as required (email elby_designs@ozemail.com.au with your requirements)
General specifications of items contained in our kits are as follows:-
  • TEMPCO resistors are 3500ppm/°C and are supplied in axial format (series padding resistor included for 3300ppm/°C applications)
  • All pots are Alpha 16mm, 0.5W with 21mm, 1/4" shafts (with flats machined to 25% of the diameter)
  • All capacitors less than 1nF are generally 2.5% Polystyrene or NPO/Low K Ceramic Disc
  • All capacitors between 1nF and 1uF are generally Polyester
  • All capacitors greater than 1uF are generally 356V Tantalum or Low-ESR 25V Electrolytics
  • All ICs are high-grade components
  • IC sockets are gold insert machined pin

Hardware Kits

Selection of some of the components found in our Hardware Kits

CGS - Ken Stone Kits

  • Component Kits contain all board mounted components (resistors, capacitors, semiconductors etc)
  • PCB Component Kits add an original Ken Stone PCB to the Component Kit
  • Hardware Kits include all off-board components (switches, pots and jack sockets) based on a fully constructed module using all options
  • Schematics are examples of a fully configured module as per Ken's notes. The additional hardware components in these schematics are reflected in the HARDWARE KIT for that module
  • Front Panel Designer (FPD ) files can be found on the Modular Synth Panels group. These are NOT available from Elby Designs.
  • Jack sockets are 6.35mm Switched Mono sockets. 3.5mm available on request
  • Pots are standard Alpha 16mm carbon pots. Alpha 24mm, Spectrol/Vishay 248 or OMEG plastic pots (OW16ECO family) available on request
  • All Component Kits include a 4-way 0.156" Crimp Header and Socket where the board allows for it. A low-cost crimp tool is available.
  • Where a module requires LED's, the Hardware Kit will contain 5mm Chrome Bezel RED LEDs (Green or Blue available on request)
  • Toggle switches are high-quality panel mount with chrome-plated toggle
  • Rotary switches are of a sealed design and are break-before-make
  • Hardware Kits come with 27mm MOTM/MOOG-style knobs where required. Other designs are available on request

Oakley Modular Kits

  • Component Kits contain all board mounted components (resistors, capacitors, semiconductors etc) plus all off-board components (switches, jack sockets and knobs etc) but excludes the pcb, pots, front panel and wires.
  • Jack sockets are Switchcraft 112APC 6.35mm Mono-Switched sockets where PCB mounting is required otherwise Switchcraft 112A.
  • All crimp connectors are Molex Crimp types (Header and Socket). A low-cost crimp tool is available.
  • Where a module requires LED's, the Hardware Kit will contain 5mm LED's with suitable Lens-Mounts
  • Toggle switches are high-quality panel mount with a flattened chrome-plated toggle
  • Rotary switches are of a sealed design and are break-before-make
  • Knobs are 27mm MOTM/MOOG-style
  • The special brackets for mounting the Omeg/Spectrol pots are available with the PCBs direct from Oakley Sounds

Panther Kits

  • Full Kits contain all board mounted components (resistors, capacitors, semiconductors etc), PCB, plus all off-board components (switches, pots, jack sockets and knobs etc) including the front panel - everything except the solder!
  • Component Kits contain all the pcb mounted components while Hardware Kits contain all the panel mounted components. PCB(s) and Front Panel are available separately.
  • PCB Sets are also available containing a complete set of Panther boards as required to complete the module.
  • Panther Front Panels are also available separately for constructors who wish to retrofit an original CGS module in to a Eurorack system. Please note that you may need to make allowance for the pcbs which are larger than the equivalent Panther version
  • Jack sockets are Cliff S6BB/PC 3.5mm Mono-Switched sockets
  • Pots are from the Alpha 16mm series and incorporate an 18T metric spline fitting for knobs
  • Where a module requires LED's, the Component Kit will contain 3mm flat-top LED's. Although red is the default colour, some modules use other colour mixes. Where a dual-colour LED is required (such as in the ED115 Noise Module) we are currently only able to supply standard cone-head LEDs.
  • Toggle switches are high-quality right-angle pcb-mount
  • Knobs are Hi-Contrast Light-Grey soft-body and with a blue marker line and skirt.
  • All Panther modules can be suppleid with 4mm banana sockets instead of the 3.5mm jacks. We have adopted the following colour scheme for these sockets. In addition we can include clones of the Davies 1900H knob for that SERGE style finish.
