Partičku Bastl Instruments jsem poprvé potkal před rokem v rámci mého seriálu o DIY pro časopis Music Store. Už tenkrát jsme si padli do noty. Kluci měli dobře našlápnuto a jejich projekt měl slibnou budoucnost. Když se mi Ondřej Merta, šéf Bastl Instruments ozval, jestli bych se nechtěl na workshop podívat a zase se vidět, říkal jsem si, chci být u toho. Věděl jsem, že to bude zase legrace a nudit se určitě nebudu.

What would happen when several musicians from the Brno underground scene met at an art school and discover on their own that each of them is into electronics? A successful project can arise after five years that will have a yearly turnover to the amount of one million Czech crowns and will distribute DIY instruments to the whole world. This time, the boys from Bastl Instruments were interviewed and I was really having a great time with them.

This time I went to a small town called Rudolfov, close to České Budějovice where Martin Trochta, another DIY guru, grew up in when he was a child. Martin's life story can inspire any enthusiast whose situation made him or her start from restricted means (as many of us did) and make it on their own. Besides the eurorack models that Martin offers under the Autiolab label, we also had the chance to look at his analogue jewel called Yousynth.
