When should we expect to know if we got in on the standard edition?

Standard edition is still open at the moment so if you entered it already, then youíve secured a spot.
Thank you so much for the support!

Hmm, haven't received my LE invoice yet. Pretty sure I signed up before he said there were slots remaining

Same here so I think it'll just be later today that it gets sent out I presume.

Okay! Thank you! I am just kinda worried because I got it in between when he said there were 2 spots left and when he said it was all filled :(

Sorry for the delay, some people are missing information that Iím trying to clear up.
Shouldnít be too much longer.

Please verify all the items are correct and PM me  if there are any issues or discrepancies.

Thanks!

All LE invoices have been sent out at this time. Please remember the 24 hour timeframe for payment has now begun or I will open up the slot to someone who is waitlisted. Thank you all so much!

Howdy, the listing mentions that each kit will also be shipped with a carrying case, but there's also a case listed as an extra for $20. Is the $20 for a fancier version of the case? Looking forward to seeing one of these in person, the photos and renders look super nice!

The cases are the same. The option just exists to purchase an additional case if desired.

I'd like one just like this, please: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/IlWA3dTX_8bs3V1giopxsXhe__Hl8iddUNrdbqu4rcnWZT5PRgnbJM6HuqYPnM2XCapyLMmM19jFOLZ96d-MwyQmAQoGlXUo22erhcL2S8Mset_HHZHpjzqjp8IviQ=w740

https://i.imgur.com/sNtFC6p.jpg

That can only be attained if you you purchase an LE version with the e-white case.
If the demand is high enough, Iíll possibly open up e-white to the standard edition in the future whenI run other colors for inserts. Sorry about that.

All Standard Edition slots have been accounted for as well! As is typical in a GB, some people entered duplicates, and some others haven't responded to their invoices so there are a small number of spots that have been opened back up. The Standard Edition form is now back open and I will close it down again once I have these slots filled.
Invoices for these will be going out over the course of the next 12 hours.
Please remember you have 24 hours to make payment from the time of invoice receipt or the slot will be opened up to another member.

Thank you all for the tremendous support!
I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!

If someone had backed out from the limited edition kit, could we be offered to switch from standard to limited, considering all my addons account to as much as the limited edition kit? just hoping.  ;D

To the people who got the LE edition, any plans to get the brass insert coated so it doesn't patina fast? Trying to avoid that if possible.

What kind of coating though?  PVD, Ceramic, Cerakote? Any recommendations?

I'm not too well-versed on these things too haha. But I think clear coating is enough. Maybe DoCallMeKing can help chime in.

Clearcoating is the most typical treatment in order to seal brass. PVD is quite expensive but when done right looks fantastic. A cheaper option is just to grab some spray sealant from your local home improvement store.

Hey all,

I think I am going to coat it with this:

This is meant to protect brass jewelry and is skin safe (figure this is important because it will be touched frequently), hope this helps!

If you do a second round, will you add anything to differentiate the R1 boards from the R2 boards for exclusivity sake? or maybe completely different colors? just a thought.

It's still very early to tell if there would be a round 2 or not but there would for sure be completely different color options for the inserts and some other small modifications I would do to differentiate the rounds.

I understand the timing might not be best for people with all the happenings in the world. I'll for sure gauge the interest and see what happens.

Just an FYI, there will be some extras  :)

Best of luck with everything and happy holidays.

I forgot to ask before but on the LE boards will there be anything to specify which number board you have?

Would be kinda cool to just know which of the 50 I have.

Yes this is the place to keep an eye out for them. But it wouldn't be until after receipt of shipment by all the GB participants.

I have spoke to my manu about this. We're seeing if we can come to an agreement. Also I would like to keep the symmetry of the weight as much as possible so trying to find a position that I like is also an issue.

There is no discord channel at the moment. Iím in the process of getting a website up and running which will be a place to look for updates as well as here in geekhack. Discord channel is on the horizon as well but my first priority is the website.

One of the pcb's on one my prototypes have the millmax in there and its working perfectly. :)

No need. They do not impact the bottom of the case so there is no space issue.

Not at this time as personally I don't think its necessary. I love the sound of the board in its current state. Obviously everyone's preferences will be different though.
