FRUKU B0B – DIY Build

FRUKU B0B - DIY Build

While there are many 808 Kick modules on the market, none are quite like the B0B from FRUKU, a designer out of the Netherlands. The B0B is FRUKU’s first solo module and all we can say is that it packs one hell of a punch.

Now, you might be asking yourself, where have you heard the name FRUKU before? A few months back, we built and featured the Veratrum, a new module by Reverse Landfill and guess who… FRUKU! 

The B0B is unique in that even though it is an 808 kick drum, it has a clipping parameter that accepts CV to control the amount of grit you want to add. The module features a decay, tone and volume pot as well. It’s black panel mimics that of the Veratrum and a lot of the modules produced by our friends at Reverse Landfill. 

Links and more links…

Below are a series of links that have been provided by FRUKU to help assist with the use, building and buying of the B0B.

Of course, we are here for you as well if you have any questions while building the module. Just hit us up on our Contact Page.

Let’s get on with the build…


Reverse Landfill Creep Cluster – DIY Build

Reverse Landfill Creep Cluster - DIY Build

Completed Creep Cluster Front Panel

As we dive into the fall season and Halloween draws near, we decided to take on a little module known as Creep Cluster by Reverse Landfill . Until recently, little was known about the Creep Cluster as it was only available as a desktop synth. We were very intrigued by the desktop model and were stoked to see Martijn decide to release the eurorack version. 

Upon picking up the module through Reverse Landfill’s ETSY page (listed here), we made sure to read through the assembly guide and double checked the BOM to ensure that we had everything ready once the module arrived from overseas. Thankfully, we had a few single female single header wires/pins (at least 3 are needed) but we did have to order some extra wire for the build. A quick order on Amazon and we were ready to go in a couple days. 

What about the design?

The wooden panel with the Reverse Landfill logo really give the panel a unique look. This is something that Reverse Landfill is known for up until recently, as they now offer black panels as an option. 

As for the PCB panels, they are royal blue with a white silkscreen. Martijn also had a little fun with the PCB as you can see by placing an “Easter egg” on the board.  Now, lets get on with the build!

You Creep!
