Ahhh...Summertime! With these longer days it is the perfect time to start a new project or complete unfinished ones. And, with the Summer Sale at PAiA, your project will cost even less or you'll be able to afford to take it the next step farther. Enhance or refurbish a device with add-ons from the Small Kits and Gear section. Or, fit some of the new modules to an FR-7 for use with a P9700S, an older PAiA modular, or even Theremax.

Two conductor mono cables (signal and ground)? Yes, we still use star grounding in many of our patches, but we know that many of our customers prefer to use grounded-shield cables for their patches, because it's simple. Of course, you can use either and that's what we're doing here now that we've got these great custom cables in stock. If you order a 9700/S set, you'll still get a set of plugs and a generous length of ultra-high-quality single-conductor instrument cable for your first set of patch cables, but if you like to have pre-build cables, our new products are hard to beat. We use a great, soft grey cable with small-diameter 3.5mm plugs, in the shorter lengths that so many patches cry out for. We've even color-coded the barrels so you can pull just the right cable out of your tangle for that quick patch.
The tool kits are something we've been wanting to do for ... forever. More than ever, we have customers whose PAiA kit is their first electronic project. Of course, we've designed these kits so they can be built by anyone using almost any tools, but we've always wanted to have something really special to offer the new experimenter: a truly complete set of tools at the lowest possible price. Today, we've done it and we know you'll be as pleased as we are.
We're pleased as punch to welcome David Arms, Bass and Synth, to the technical team. Also, the inimitable Cliff Schecht, Guitar, is back for another season of intern fun on the design bench. The small changes you've seen in the last year (new cabling, new panels) and others behind the scene are tiny indications of many new things getting ready to pop. Hold onto your hats.25 November 2008
We're happy to say that one of our favorite t's, our Theremax t-shirt featuring the iconic Clara Rockmore in performance, is back in stock at a great new price. If you've been looking for that perfect gift, or (like us) you lost your shirt in the last market drop, your luck has turned! (Summer 2009 update: the market's up, but not our price. Stock up while you're still flush!)
