  1. Just taken one-and-a-half hours out of my busy holiday weekend to put together the Nebulophone which – yes! – I did get for my birthday.

    It's brilliant.

    No problems with the kit. One slight delay which could have been rectified more quickly if I'd read the instructions properly. Superbly made printed circuit board and everything fitted. No better use was ever made of an Atmega chip. Kudos to Dr Bleep and Mr Chimples.

    Buy one now.
