GMUSynth Woodworks has introduced ‘SkiniBrute‘ – a wood panel conversion kit that turns the Arturia MiniBrute keyboard into a desktop synth module.
The SkiniBrute mod holds the synth’s panel at an 11.25° angle, providing clear and easy access to the controls. The case’s side panels are modeled after the original MiniBrute design, including the multidimensional slopes and bevels.
A solid wood front piece fills the gap left by missing keyboard, and a new metal base plate with rubber feet and hammer finish completes the case.
The kit includes all panel mounting brackets, spacers, and screws required for installation. No synth repair or electronics knowledge is required to install, and assembly instructions are provided. And the conversion is non-destructive and completely reversible.
The kit is available in a number of domestic and imported hardwoods including Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Oak, and Mahogany.
The SkiniBrute case mod kit is available for US $95 at GMUSynth. Note that the kits are made to order and can take up to 6 weeks to ship.
