Free DIY Arp 2600

Submitted by on October 2, 2009 – 11:16 am 2 Comments

The ARP 2600 is one of the coolest analog synthesizers ever made. It’s been used by just about everyone, and these days you see it most in electronic music such as techno. The 2600 is a semi-modular, monophonic, patch-cable synthesizer that competed directly against the first professional Modular Moog synths during the early 1970’s. The Arp 2600 brought modular-style synthesis to the masses in and easy-to-use but still very powerful package.

Unfortunately, to buy a vintage 2600 these days you’ll have to come up with $3000-$4000 or even more. When you finally do get it, you might have to fix it – and they can be very difficult and expensive to fix because many 2600’s have modules that are encased in hard plastic.

Luckily, you can get one for free! Well, sort of. I present to you the papercraft Arp 2600…

Click here to download the full-sized file, which you can then print out on your printer. Cut it out, glue or tape it together & you’ll be able to imagine making all sorts of R2D2 noises.

We also have for you a free papercraft DIY Minimoog and papercraft Roland TR-909. Enjoy!
