Integrator Product Page

Attention! Please Read!

If you are interested in purchasing integrators or integrator components, you can leave me a message via the contact page. However, I have recently found that many of my replies are being rejected by spam filters. So if you have left me a message, you can generally expect a reply within 24 hours. If you do not, it is likely that my reply has been blocked and you should please have a look in your junk or spam filtered folder in your email client. I use email because it suits my international, niche market and e-commerce tools are too limited or expensive for my sales. Unfortunately, email has become a kind of wild west with no real guarantees of smooth delivery but it is still the best way for me.

How to obtain an integrator

Currently, I am redesigning the device as explained below. However, you can at least order PCB’s directly from the manufacturer at this link:

The V5.9 Integrator is no longer available. The very last few bare PCB’s and PCB’s assembled with switches are now sold out. The reason is, a new integrator version 6.0 is in development, and I need to concentrate my time and effort on the new device. It is in the circuit design and PCB layout stage now, and units should be available later this year. The time frame has been pushed back again because I want to do a good job on it, and I am not building any more or ordering parts because it distracts me from that task. So please bear with me. I can not accept any more requests to be on a waiting list because it will become too hard to manage and too hard to notify everyone when the new device is ready.

This device contains a high impedance preamplifier and signal integration function, for analyzing electric guitar pickups. It has gone through several stages of prototyping and design improvement. The latest update is an acrylic front panel. It looks really cool in the dark, although you probably won’t be testing pickups in the dark!

As a specialized test instrument, the market for it is relatively small, so a challenge was met to offer a product that is both economical and robustly constructed, and also can be made by an experimenter, following the free and completely open online documentation and design files, found here:

In the spirit of open source, I have made it possible for any customer to choose whether they wish to make their own, or purchase component parts or complete units from me. I offer a variety of kit options, from only the PCB, to a parts kit and assembled PCB, all the way to assembled, tested and calibrated unit.

Also because of the limited market, it is not economical or feasible for me to set up an online store where you can simply shop and check out your purchases. The global distribution of my customers also means that optimum shipping varies considerably depending on which country I’m sending to. Consequently, I operate by communicating with each individual customer via email, to choose the right kit or parts and to choose the best payment and shipping options.

Many people have already purchased and/or built some previous version of the Integrator. Any of those do work perfectly well, but if any previous customer wishes to upgrade to the new product, please contact me with the details of the their unit, for an assessment of upgrade options.

Price List:

  • PCB only: US$8
  • PCB assembled with parts (including IC, switches not soldered): US$45
