Everyone uses their OP-1 in a unique way, but wow - this is one well-worn, super personalised and clearly much loved little dude! 🤖
Read @ritchual’s story below describing the history behind it.
If you guys have any of your own OP-stories please send them to us, we’d love to hear/feature them!

This is my #teenageengineering #op1. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
It's pretty noticeable, too.
As an early adopter, I've owned this lovely device since the first day it was available in-store (at the wonderful #switchedonaustin). It's traveled cross-country multiple times, had pieces replaced and a custom paint job thanks to #insomnia.
It's been signed by a few of my all-time favorite artists, with the crown jewel being on the bottom right-hand side: #garynuman.
I was lucky enough to meet him, albeit briefly, thanks to my friend Markus a few years ago during #SXSW and wanted him to sign it.. Because if it weren't for him, I doubt I ever would've felt as inclined to reach for #synthesizers in general. I remember hearing #arefriendselectric as a young sprout and nearly losing my mind (in a good way). This weekend, @the_nimbus get to play the same space directly after his set and I couldn't be more honored and excited.
But send warm thoughts.. And chicken soup. I'm probably going to have to take off the next few days to curb this ill feeling that's been present the last couple.. Either way, #theshowmustgoon and I can't wait for Sat. night at @mohawkaustin
