Synthtopia has this post on the little blue boy synth. Here are the details:

Features:

  • 2 voltage controlled ramp (sawtooth) oscillators
  • 1/4″ input with variable gain
  • envelope follower with optional inverter
  • 2 channel mixer
  • intermodulating output stage
  • powder-coated aluminum case
  • single 9V battery
  • power automatically disconnected when output cable is unplugged

supplied with:

  • battery
  • set of 7 banana patch cords

LBB Standard now runs on a single 9V battery. Current drain is still low. Disconnecting the output cable shuts off the power. The circuitry is hand-built with premium parts, using discrete transistors, no chips. Instruments are supplied with a set of banana cables for patching. Input and output are via standard 1/4″ connectors. Output is a hot line level, for extra buzz.

I know it isn’t really handheld, but it is very portable and I do like the whole hand made and unique feel to the synth.
