We have a new vendor we would like to announce. HandHeldLegend.com has a great DIY backlight that I really like. I like it so much I invited him to post an AD here on Ninstrument.com. I asked him a few questions to gain some insight to why he is working on this retro game stuff:
Who are you, where do you ship from primarily?
I am a graduate student located out of Philadelphia PA and attend a local university in hopes of becoming an optometrist.
Why are you doing this and what inspires you to create new product?
Working with my hands and building things is a hobby and most of all a stress reliever. I find inspiration to create and build things based on my childhood, Gameboys being one of the most memorable. I respect and appreciate the music artists who can take simple sounds and create complex and elegant tracks with them. I only hope that my back lights and products can create a better experience for gamers and chiptune people alike.
How long you have been doing this?
A new hobby, for me I have only been creating Game Boy products for a year.
Any new things to look out for that are coming up?
New back light colors should be in and ready for order by January 2nd, 2014. Attempting to create DMG screen covers, DMG shells, a clear LED panel (for GBC) and possibly buttons.
Definitely check out his site if you are modding your own Gameboys and keep checking back for new products.
We released balloons for Veterans Day on the CU campus downtown Denver last week. Thank you Veterans from all of us at Ninstrument.com.
For me this track brings back great memories of finally kickin’ much ass in this game. Well done to Vino Lopez. He has more titles too located here: http://www.youtube.com/user/lopezdawg83?feature=watch
low_budget just released NES Super8 in limited quantities. Links here:
Links bounce you to both a NES Super8 with included RGB PPU and without. I can’t urge you enough to take advantage of getting one of these for a project we will release next year. Super8 will give you much better audio than a traditional top loader NES and crystal clean graphics too.
low_budget is about to release a new and improved NES Super 8! I was tapped to work the cases from Polycase and perform the necessary cuts and prints on the ABS plastic shells. The Super 8′s audio is much cleaner than the original NES. It will accept a RGB PPU allowing a huge upgrade in cleaner and crisper graphics too. We have featured the Super 8 before in this POST. It was awesome to have a helping hand in making the best NES clone using 100% genuine chips.
If you are interested in getting your hands on the best NES clone available, please CONTACT us and we will get it arranged with Nick.
Electric Type has released his first track using the Synthboy+! I am watching his progress intently! Check out his bandcamp page because his composition is spot on in my opinion!
We have been overwhelmed by the response of MOD3. I would like to share that excitement with the rest of you by offering MOD3 FREE for all new purchases of the Premium Color Synthboy+ and the Sexboy Synthboy+. Please place your order and I will confirm all the necessary details with you via email. Of course I will perform the upgrade for you if you want me to.
Neil has done it again! droNES is a fantastic droning program that turns your NES into a droning synthesizer. Neil has the software for sale on his new site located HERE! I have spent the whole day playing with the various controls of droNES and I have to say I love how destructive you can make the overall sound.
I also am offering the service of putting Neil’s droNES onto old school reconditioned carts. With ‘proof of purchase’ from his site I can burn proms and get it goin’ old school on original hardware. Please contact me directly as I am not going to offer this service through the store. LINK TO CONTACT ME. Here is what the cart looks like.
