Electronic Hardware Purchases

We service popular electronics that are no longer supported by the original manufacturer. We are a mail-in repair shop. For small and lightweight items, mail-in works great. For large and heavy items, shipping costs can be prohibitively expensive. To reduce these costs by around 90%, we work on the circuit boards in the equipment. This means you don’t have to pay to ship the enclosure, power supplies, speakers, keybeds, and other large and heavy items. This only works if we have our own host equipment we can plug your circuit boards into. This is why we have decided to crowdfund the purchases of host equipment. Your donations help us to purchase these large and heavy electronics and expand our service offerings to other brands and models. The host equipment we’re looking for is listed in the table below. The budget is our best guess at what it may cost us to purchase it. When purchases are made, the campaign goal is adjusted according to what we actually paid. See Activity for the current state of the campaign goal.

Please visit our GoFundMe page to donate today! Better yet, if you have a lead on one, please let us know using our tips line.

Picture Host Equipment Description Budget
Digital Korg BX-3 circa 2000

Korg BX-3, 2002 Version

Second-generation Korg BX-3 from the 2000s. It doesn’t need to be pretty. In fact, it doesn’t even have to work. Scratches, dents, bangs, and other cabinet damage is fine, but it does need to have all its major parts. A few missing screws or broken keys are OK.

$1,200

Activity

This ledger shows all the activity of the campaign with the more recent transactions at the top. When a piece of equipment is added to the goal, its budget amount is added. When a piece of equipment is purchased, the equipment’s original goal amount is subtracted and the purchase amount (after fees) is added to keep the campaign goal consistent with the outstanding budget and actual purchases. This is why the campaign goal doesn’t “reset” when purchases are made. For example, if a piece of equipment is purchased below the budget amount, the campaign goal amount goes down.

The campaign goal is always the sum of the purchases (USD) to date plus the support list budget.
