durable, high quality materials and careful design ensure our objects will survive throughout their creative potential.
we choose not to outsource production in cases where it supports controversial governments, exploits workers, and leads to destructive environmental practices. instead we work directly with companies who we’ve managed to foster long-term relationships with. we’ve gained insight into and control over production, and are able to witness the progress first hand. as a result we engage in continuous and responsive design, meet with our manufacturers often and visit the production facilities where our custom components are made. we choose to support companies who share our values; companies who provide living wages, clean and safe working environments, and high quality goods.
we acknowledge that our future will depend on our ability to support and maintain a local, regenerative economy.
monome exists in large part because of its vibrant community of users who contribute vast amounts of knowledge, helpful peer to peer support, and enthusiasm for creating and distributing their creative developments. our ever growing user based wiki and active forum is testament to the power of openness and sharing.
we consider ourselves fortunate to be in such good company.
is this device available? how do i order?
see the order page. we produce small editions according to our perception of demand and do not maintain stock at all times.
when will a new edition be available?
we announce new editions in the news section of the forum. if you’re looking for a specific device, put in a request there.
where can i hear/see/hold a monome device in person?
monome devices are presently sold at only one retail store: control voltage in portland, oregon.
if you happen to come through upstate new york, we may be around to show you our work.
will you ship internationally?
yes. you will be responsible for any customs, duty, and VAT fees that your country imposes when the package enters your country. these are typically around 20% of the purchase amount and are collected on delivery.
do you give educational discounts or sponsorships?
we are very small. in short, no. but if you’re part of an institution looking to get a substantial number of our devices into your classrooms, please contact us.
is there a warranty? what if something breaks?
we assess each situation individually. repairs are inexpensive or often free. we will also make suggestions if there’s a simple way to fix the problem yourself.
schematics and board files are available on the wiki, so if you’re inclined you can perform circuit fixes or modifications yourself.
