Why a garden?

It made me sad that there was no great directory of interesting contemporary electronic musical instruments out there. ModularGrid exists for modules, Vintage Synth Explorer exists for older gear / big name stuff, and you can visit perfect cricuit or similar and browse their inventory - but some of the most interesting gear isn't stocked at large synth sellers. I wanted something that focussed on contemporary instruments, small synth makers and gear for unsual music (noise, drone, ambient).

The layout / navigation of of the site is a work in progress, but please feel free to suggest ways you'd like to be able to browse the content (e.g. by tag, by company). The content of the site is open source, so please add your favourite piece of gear, or correct any mistakes you find.

I hope you find it useful!
