A new bent Casio SK-8 is available for sale. As a circuit bending target, the SK-8 is perhaps superior to both the SK-1 and SK-5. The SK-8 has lots of good chaotic sounds, multiple sample memory, plus “Easter egg” individual drum sounds.

A commissioned bent Grillo Parlante (Italian Speak & Spell) has also been posted.
