Interesting to build. Switches could be a bit fiddly to install and there are a lot of them (49). I used the technique of tacking one leg then reflowing while getting each switch flat to the board before completely soldering. Result looks good. Screws and nuts are very tiny (M2) so also quite fiddly to mount. The finished kit worked first time and makes a good sound with lots of excellent demo tunes. Overall pleased with the result
