Mail Day Thread

My Tayda Order from a month ago is finally here! I didn’t get stung by customs, so that’s a bonus!

At their page they say that if you use the slow shipping and not DHL nor UPS, there are no problems with customs… but I am too afraid to try xD

I don’t think they’re lying on the customs declarations, so that’s probably more a lottery than anything else – the courier delivery companies pay all fees up front on your behalf, officially to be able to guarantee delivery times, while ordinary mail is spot-checked.

Thanks Richard there is some joy in the mailbox today !

I’ve only built my version of @analogoutput’s mikrokosmos version of the microphonie, and that was trivial :smiley: but @ChristianBloch’s photos of his mikrokosmos build might be more useful:

There’s also a video in that thread, but haven’t checked if that has any additional build details.

Yes, the github is here https://github.com/holmesrichards/Mikrokosmos and the README has some brief build notes. See if that answers any questions you have.

And I’m out of those boards, sorry! But the gerbers are there.

Wow, that just arrived? I mailed it weeks ago.

yeah I have stuff that has been 2 months waiting and still not here , USPS is really dropping the ball on this . just when they say they are going to need our tax money to help them . I just reordered a bunch of stuff because I am tired of waiting while projects just sit here . having stuff sent DHL , costs more but they will get it here in a couple weeks even from over seas .

Again, see the README in the github repository. For Mic In you need sleeve, tip, and tip switch. Piezo red lead connects to the latter. For Out you just need sleeve and tip.

Taking inflation into account $2 might be a good deal :grinning:
