July 1st…. Cue me refreshing the monome page every 5 minutes to see if norns is back in stock.

Got quite the exciting email just now…
All black… sick… got me questioning if I need another.
I’m wondering if it’s black aluminum? I assume so since there’s no mention of a different material, but would love it if someone could confirm.
I think it’s the style previously shown (teased?) here and here, which I remember Brian writing about somewhere, but I can’t find it now… quite sure he said it was a new aluminum finish, though, not plastic or anything.
def aluminum, super nice matte finish, got the first batch (linseed) oiled up today (while listening to the new florist album — p sure every unit will be done to that album). they look amazing, super stoked to see em in folks’ hands
Will grids eventually be released in black as well?
So very exciting! I hope I manage to click buy quickly enough… god willing! Been wanting a factory one for ages
I never bought anything on the monome site. How does it work? Is it a batch that disappears in a few minutes? Can we pay with paypal ? Thanks
Yes, pretty sure I used PayPal last time. It’s a typical click buy, pay with PayPal affair
Echoing — How fast do batches tend to sell out?
For context, I guess, the limited edition silvers sold out in a few hours and I think there were 10 of them.
Thanks for the feedback !
Kinda stoked you released it in time for my birthday on 05/08
Norns gifts accpeted …being a selfish leo and all that hehe
not sure if you’re at liberty to say but…has their been a shift toward usb c port(s) like the recent grid design?
i’m super excited about this drop and will probably try to get one anyway
no changes! the boards for this run are not functionally different from all the others – the battery connector port has shifted to make it easier to assemble, but that’s all. we’ve been using these boards for repair swaps for the past 6 months
thanks for the background info
Does anybody know if the paypal payment plan things will work with the Norns? I definitely do not have the full funds free for a Norns currently, but if the paypal payment stuff is enabled, I could probably make it work…
Tried Klarna? or clearpay etc?
worth a punt
