I actually can't believe it's been nearly three months since the last blog update. So with no fanfare, let's get into it with a few updates.
1) The Beholder launch is in a week! This long-awaited foray outside the world of dirt is coming on 4/27/18 at 2PM EST. Also worth noting: we will be moving our e-commerce over to Reverb, as our transaction fees (everyone's got them) are better spent on a platform that is by and for musicians. We'll make the changeover painless by ensuring the links are super clear to follow.
2) Seriously, thank you all so much for the successful sales we've had thus far in 2018. Model feTs and Dude Incredibles have all been flying off the shelves and we couldn't do it without you. I will address the unfortunate lack of Longswords so far this year—Zach had a major foundation leak in his basement workshop and was forced to relocate to a new shop which is just getting up and running. There WILL be more, they just took longer than expected. Thanks for being patient.
3) The Dude Incredible will be going on indefinite hiatus. The IVP side is going to live on as the Surveyor, which is just getting the final touches for surface-mount assembly. (Yes, you read that right. The future is now.)
4) Sending, our long-awaited tap tempo analog delay, is coming. The final artwork is approved and we are in the process of ordering some of the longer lead-time parts (PCBs, enclosures, etc). Once all that is squared away will be working out demo videos and a proper announcement. One important thing to note: we're going to be breaking our "no preorders" rule because these pedals are expensive to build. More info soon.
5) Re: other new stuff: we're getting there but ultimately it's best to space things out. I obsessively optimize anyway.
Until next time,
