Yes some guys over at gearslutz posted the guitar center link and I managed to get into some heated discussion about the delay but Uli came to the rescue
Allow me to clarify:
1.) This is a true analog BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) circuitry based on 3205 chips.
2.) We are targeting to ship the first products from our factory by end of April. It will take a bit more time for products to reach our retailers.
3.) I can now confirm that the official US MAP for the Neutron is US$ 299.99.
We have received such positive feedback about the Neutron that we feel confident about high projected production runs.
As explained before, we work very differently from most competitors as we calculate our prices “bottom up”.
This means that the larger the production volume is, the lower our component and manufacturing cost will be. Based on our philosophy, we then pass these savings on to you.
As you know I am very passionate about synths and it’s our goal to get as many people as possible into making music.
Last but not least, I like to give credit to our multiple innovation teams who have been tirelessly and passionately working on this synth. I am very proud of you!
I hope you are as excited about the Neutron as we are
Btw two of the GS members called in at GC and placed a pre order.
