Title: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: madbean on April 02, 2015, 08:59:23 AM
Starting on Saturday morning there will be a "Spring Sale" on boards that will last three or four days. Probably a fixed % discount.

Obviously, I have missed the "Late March" target on the next batch of releases. This is mostly due to finances at this point with the tax bill this year. So, I'm hoping the sale will drum up just a bit of extra cash to float some of these very large PCbs I am about to manufacture. I've also got a few pedals and things I'm going to post in the BST section. We are still on target as far as what will be released, though, so no worries there.

After the next release, I will be spending a few weeks to re-do the website as I outlined at the beginning of this year. I may sneak in one or two small projects at the same time, but the major focus is on the website.

This year has been very productive up to this point, with release batches coming about every 4 weeks. I am going to do my best to maintain that once the website redesign is complete for the remainder of 2015.

I know it's not your style, but speaking for myself, I'd have no problem paying in a presale for new boards.

I think you wanted to say "no problem". If that's the case, I second it.

Let me third this. From the response to group buys it seems few have a problem with it.

Ha! Thanks for the heads-up on the typo!

Post by: m-Kresol on April 02, 2015, 11:02:19 AM
thanks for the info Brian.
I said it in another thread and I'll repeat it here: I'm also happy to pay up front for the boards if it will make it easier for you to have them manufactured.

Post by: pierre67 on April 02, 2015, 11:33:57 AM
the same over here, I'll be more than happy to pay in advance for the new boards.

Same here about pre-payment. No need to over-burden anyone.

Great news and I'd happy to pre-pay as well if it helps, no worries.

I'd be happy to prepay, as well.

If it means we can finally get these PCBs out into the world, I'm completely happy to preorder too!
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: ggarms on April 02, 2015, 03:14:21 PM
I think it's safe to say most of us will preorder.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: madbean on April 02, 2015, 05:49:15 PM
I actually had not even thought of it. Let me see how a pre-order might look for these. The sale is still on, of course.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates

Also in for pre order

I'm not sure what it counts at this point but pre-order sounds good to me too.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: the3secondrule on April 02, 2015, 06:41:53 PM
Yep, I'd also preorder

This.

I've been looking forward to the Dirtbaby Dlx for awhile and would be willing to preorder.  With my schedule plus my build backlog, I wouldn't be put out if it takes a few weeks.  Winds up being a nice little surprise in the mail.

Post by: pogart on April 02, 2015, 07:57:55 PM
I'm cool for a pre-order for a rust bucket as well.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: gordo on April 02, 2015, 08:25:28 PM
Up for prepay as well.  In fact I'll just give you my paypal account and just send me everything you come up with.

Oh and just to make it real...put the Laserwolf board out there again so I can log in 10 minutes after it's sold out  ;D

Post by: monkeyssj1 on April 02, 2015, 11:38:29 PM
Count me in for a pre-sale if it goes down as well ;)
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: Stomptown on April 03, 2015, 12:51:03 AM
With all the buzz surrounding these upcoming releases, a pre-order is definitely a great idea!  I'm guessing I'm not the only on worried the rust bucket/dirt bag will be sold out before I can get my mits on them!  IIRC, there are a couple other releases in there infancy as well!  I'm most definitely on board for a pre-order!
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: Jules on April 03, 2015, 01:13:13 AM
I would happily preorder for the  freekout and Zero point Dlx. Been looking forward for these.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates

I like the pre-order idea as well.  I mean, its not like I won't buy them anyway  ;D

I'm on for a pre-order for dirtbag dlx. I think it's a great idea!  :D :D :D
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: thesameage on April 03, 2015, 08:10:48 AM
I'd preorder a dirtbaby for sure. Glad to hear about the sale. There are a few things I need to pick up for sure!
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: madbean on April 03, 2015, 09:40:09 AM
Okay, no point in going against the tide. I will set up a pre-order for the next batch as well as the LaserWolf. Thanks for your vote of confidence guys!

However, I want to be clear: the pre-order will have to come after the sale. The reason is 1) I want to get everything completely locked down and airtight before taking anyone's money, 2) ideally I will have at least the BOM for each project ready to share and 3) it's actually going to take a bit to work out what the prices and shipping is going to be on the large boards. I will get on this right away so let's shoot for the middle to end of next week. I will give at least a day's notice before the pre-order stuff goes up.

Again, thanks. This will make it easier to get enough boards to make everyone happy  :)

Same here, done it for laserwolf!

That's great. I think we all feel a debt of gratitude towards you Bean. I have a whole pedal board full of great stuff because of you. My knowledge has increased because you've set up this board without any cost to us. Plus, I've always been amazed at your unselfishness. Allowing others to have their sub-forums here to sell their boards.
You've created a great community and I think we all want to make it as easy on you as possible.

This is so awesome! I'm feeling compelled to say that I admire the business and community that is fused together here! It's so amazing how you can do this all in your own as Brian of Madbean pedals. I'd love to see your business grow even more than what it is now just because I'm privileged to be part of what you're doing, so I'm going to be getting more of my boards from you from now on!

I'm waiting to place a pretty sizable PCB order until everything I want is available at the same time.
I would also like to voice my support for a preorder.
Rust Bucket, Dirtbag, Lowrider, Moodring, and a few others that are already available.

A BIG TIME +1 from me as well
I pre-ordered my laserwolf and had no problem at all with that.
p.s. Just finished my 2nd Chunk Chunk 5 mins ago!

Yay!

As usual, I'm late to the party, but I was going to add to the chorus that I would happily prepay for Dirtbag DLX boards, but then I saw Brian's post! So excited! Can't wait to send you my $$$

=)

Okay, no point in going against the tide. I will set up a pre-order for the next batch as well as the LaserWolf. Thanks for your vote of confidence guys!

let's shoot for the middle to end of next week.

Hey Brian, is there an updated ETA for the preorders? I don't mean to needle you -- the taxman was not kind to me this year and I just want to make sure I've got the cash ready when the preorders go up.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: madbean on April 15, 2015, 05:37:28 AM
No problem. I am spending all this week on the final builds. I would like to have the pre-orders ready this weekend, but it may be the first half of next week. I'll let you guys know when it's close to ready.
Title: Re: Spring Sale + updates
Post by: Jules on April 15, 2015, 08:01:49 AM
Thanks for the update Brian,
I too have some $ away waiting for the pre-orders.
How did the sale go?
Hoping the boards I ordered arrive promptly!
