High on a hilltop, past the cows and hop fields, in a secluded hollow sits an unassuming structure. Inside a robed figure sits at a workbench toiling away, teasing intricate circuits out of piles of parts.

Circuit Abbey was started by a group of Trappist monks in 2010 who were tired of their fruit cakes being used for building materials and decided to make Eurorack modules instead.

Circuit Abbey will uphold its promise to rid the world of excess bourbon, and has made great (if wobbly) strides in this cause. Please note the monks have not taken a vow of poverty; they just dress like they have.
