New DIY Eurorack Skiff & Power Solution from Befaco

Power solutions for Eurorack tend not to look too sexy. That is until Jumpskiff was introduced by Befaco. It's lovely to look at, a portable Eurorack power supply, and DIY which keeps cost down.

Here's some info on a project currently being worked on at Befaco that they wanted to share with the readers of AskAudio! It's a new DIY Eurorack skiff & power solution called Jumpskiff. 

Thom from Befaco gave us the heads up and here's what he has to say about this new project:

"We began our design process for the Jumpskiff to meet the requests we often received at our DIY Eurorack workshops for a sexy yet cost-effective, DIY enclosure and power solution for those getting started in Eurorack. With this in mind we have developed a lightweight yet robust skiff which is perfect for any musician who needs a portable system for the road. 

"It is made from lightweight materials including a PCB base (which doubles as the bus board) and side panels, acrylic end panels and aluminium rails. The integrated power supply outputs 625mA at +/- 12V rails and 1A at the +5V. The bus board offers 14x IDC power connections."
