What are you using the velcro donuts for?

We know some people don’t like the velcro rings on the back of the OP-1 Field, but this isn’t the thread for you!

Velcro lovers, what are you sticking to your synth? I’ll start. I made a dual stand for my OP-1 and OP-Z.


That’s an old Digitakt/Digitone stand that I bought from local classifieds.

keeps it from scratching the table top. Works for me.

The little rubber feet already do that for me.

But do they keep your lap cozy? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

But baffled why they stuck the ring on the OpF instead of the TX-6.

That’s a really, really good point. The leather backing on OP-1F would be a realllly nice finishing touch, and the Velcro on the TX-6 would come in super handy, given it’s size. I have yet to have the urge to stick my OP-1 to… anything?

I haven’t found anything to stick it to yet myself either, but I’m very much interested in what other people plan to/are doing with them.

I suggested to a friend, who is a house husband, that he could use it to stick the OP-1 F to the top of the pram, for tune making on the go

Brilliant :rofl::rofl:

OP1F fits the open space on Blofeld Keys really nicely. I haven’t actually applied the included Velcro donuts yet though. Not sure if I want to lose that part of the original packaging… so I may just fashion my own.

It’s like they were made for each other

For some reason it reminds me of Dr Evil and Mini Me…

At Amazon, there are Velcro units with exactly the same dimensions. Really cheap. I bought them at Amazon Spain

I was wondering about this. Looked like a perfect fit, glad you confirmed!!!

I wonder if it’s the same for the STVC

In case anyone was wondering, TE plans to have spare Velcro donuts (new favorite phrase) in stock to sell eventually:

sorry for being cynical but they have added a perishable component that no-one really desired…of course they will have £15+ velcro ring replacements in stock soon enough. So will your local hardware store for £2.

can’t see that beautiful op-f sliding off your blofeld, no need to get velcro tacky anytime soon, unless you plan on playing in some dutch-angle Batman set.

You’re right for normal use the rubber feet are adequately grippy. But we must at least consider abnormal use…

If I had an OP-1F I would consider snagging a Keytar off reverb and gettin wild with it

Edit: who’s to stop me from Velcroing my OG and going for it! Oh right, my wallet…

And also not wanting Velcro on my op-1 lol

I doubt they will be as cheap as 15 euro, I am going to guess a minimum of 20.
