What is Nixie Maestro?

Nixie Maestro is a  fully-featured nixie clock kit, using a semi - assembled SMD board. Only a small number of through-hole components need to be soldered. The clock shows time and date on six vintage IN-12 Nixie Tubes, which are sourced from the former Soviet Union. Each tube has a RGB LED to illuminate it, which creates a beautiful spectrum of colour effects. Plexi cases are available separately in the Cases section of our site. 

IN-12 Nixie Tubes not included. See HERE for the kit with tubes included
