Native Instruments Maschine Custom Kits New Price

There was a nice surprise in my e-mail today as Native Instruments have decided to reduce their custom kits to change the colour of your Native Instruments Maschine using their anodized aluminum, faceplates and matching knobs.

These are very nice but the price was too high for most folk. The price today has come down from $79 to $29 or 69 Euros to 29 Euros – lets hope they stay at these prices.

The Colours of the Machine Faceplates are Solid Gold, Dragon Red, Pink Champagne, Steel Blue and Smoked Graphite. I like the Solid Gold and Dragon Red – how about you?
