Do you have an old guitar pedal just lying around your house? Want to help out an awesome community project? The Musical Electronics Library needs your donations! MEL is looking for guitar pedals, or any musical equipment, in any condition. It doesn’t matter if it’s broken or ruined, we will take your fuzz boxes, keyboards, toys that make sound, anything we can potentially fix up and lend out as part of our free library collection. Get in touch! Email kraus [AT] kraus [DOT] co [DOT] nz or drop donations to the Audio Foundation, sub-basement of the Parisian Tie Factory, 4 Poynton Terrace, Auckland Central, Auckland. Thanks o(^・x・^)o

Tawahinga has generously donated his Korg Little Bits kit to the Musical Electronics Library! Thankyou sir!
