Patch Pins

Patch Pins

We have a very limited quantity of pins for sale. These are available only in packs of 10: eight white pins and two red pins. The white pins are original 1970s versions made by Sealectro (who also manufactured the original matrices used in the Synthi) and are new old stock (NOS) high quality versions. They are stronger than modern remakes, do not easily break and have the resistor lead threaded through the pin and soldered at the tip. These type of pins are still to be found (still working!) on early VCS3s from almost 45 years ago. They are fitted with 1% precision 2k7 resistors. The red pins are super rare heavy gold plated military specification NOS pins. They are fitted with 0.1% precision matched 10k resistors which are particularly useful for patching CV to Osc1 and Osc2 frequency control, and avoids the pitch variation that can happen when using standard tolerance patch pins.
