      Great, Nick. Thanks. (Delay is also not an issue for my order of two - Christmas presents!)

      Hi Nick, also for me the delay is no problem. Thanks for your work!

      Hi Chris Hugo

      Closer to the shipping date I will resend you a survey that you can alter for new shipping address
      Thanks Nick

      We have no problem with the delivery delay, Nick. We ordered five and feel it is more important to ensure the quality than to rush delivery.

      Thanks for your generous offer Nick. I may even be able to get over to NZ in the next 12 months, lifestyle permitting. I am going to spending most of my time back in Aus, rather than here in Abruzzo, Italy. I'm hoping that I will have the app-titude to at least make the top ten this year in the Galapagos Island charts. (Not navigation).

      Nicholas, you need to read your shipper's instructions regarding changes to address involving a different country - can't do it on the questionnaire form. It says that only you can change the Pledge country-of-record if requested by a backer. So, again, how do I do that through YOU?

      Hi Nick

      High Paulo.

      We are really concentrating on getting the first shipment produced and shipped.

      Once we have further stock we will concentrate on some of the cool custom painted units.
      As soon as these are available we will let you know.

      Cheers. nick

      Hi Paul. As I said before I like your messages.
      When you receive your Saxmonica although we have put together a good app with all the learning progression together
      I will try and contact you by Skype and give you a few quick tips to ensure you really get the most out of this instrument.
      Once again thanks.
      Nick

    11. Nicholas Millington , Rio Millington, 2-time creator on

      Hi Chris. We sent out surveys over the weekend. Please fill in with correct address and I’m sure you will receive the Saxmonica
      We have commissioned Flo ship to do all the shipping and they have a very good reputation
      Thanks Nick

    12. Chris Hugo on

      How do we contact you to provide a "safer" shipping address? I live in Mexico, but delivery would be only 65% certain - better to ship to USA friends. I can't change the shipping questionnaire country destination to update the address, and it says to contact you instead. How?

    13. Nicholas Millington , Rio Millington, 2-time creator on

      Hi out there. Surveys went out over the weekend.
      I have been relaxing with Monica on the balcony. my Sax is a very sexy sounding Monica.
      I now have the app up and running. I’m really happy with it as it going to make learning the saxmonica a pretty simple process.

      I hope anyway. .
      This is a still a work in motion.
      On any giving day we are co ordinating between manufactures in china , software developers in India , musicians all over the world while based in Cambodia so I imagine some of you will understand the challenges out there , especially when the internet is intermittent as it’s the rainy season in Cambodia .
      Hope you all having a great time where ever you are and we are doing our best to conclude the Kickstarter campaign.
      Cheers nick

      Terrific achievement to date Nick and team. I was a little concerned when you mentioned that you were reposing on a balcony with "monica", no mention of liquid refreshment and no response!
      I'm guessing that the mystery KEY is the "Key of life", hopefully I am not mistaken?

      JJ Southwell.

      I have just booked my ticket back to china for late next week.

      So will have final up date on the 13. I’m pretty sure we have cracked it and have my fingers crossed for success

      We should have a 100 percent complete product including packaging , carrier bag with logos in the right places and correct spelling.🤣🤣🤣.

      We have made a lot of progress with the App. It’s fully functioning so now creating a little more material for it.

      Cheers Nick

      How are the final touches coming along mate?

    23. Nicholas Millington , Rio Millington, 2-time creator on

      Thanks Roman.
      I will feel really awesome when I start shipping Saxmonicas and you send me a couple of images of you jamming next to your camper.
      I never anticipated close to 3000 units on Kickstarter.
      I had my garage set up to manufacture 200. In which case it would have all been to easy🤣🤣

      It was pretty exhilarating watching the Kickstarter campaign grow. That was like a shot of adrenaline. Landing in China solo with a bunch of Saxmonicas and 4 Chinese words in my vocabulary was pretty intense.
      But the nice thing is we have had a pretty amazing time building this App. Putting it all together with Orian the guitarist and music genius that’s in the videos.
      This time has allowed us the chance to put the app together and it really supports the instrument.
      So I’m hoping to give you all just a little more than what you pledged for.
      Have a great day wherever you are 😎🎶✌️Nick

    24. Roman Rieger on

      Nick u are awesome. Love to get one. The delay is not bad, I mean srly your timetable was way too optimistic. Next time just consider 30% more extra time and when u are faster ... great and everyone is even more happy :). Just a hint. Still hope that this does not take too long as I want to pratice during summer anywhere outside with my camping van.

    25. Nicholas Millington , Rio Millington, 2-time creator on

      Hi Sergey

      We have the app up and running but as yet we haven’t published it as making a few adjustments. Will keep you posted.

      I am glad that you guys are somewhat keeping us up to date and that you're having a whole lot of fun.... but could we really get and acted update about what is the approximate shipping time? as first week of july almost passed we all would love to know whats is happening...

      thank you in advance

      Looking for an update on the shipping survey. It seems they haven't been sent yet. Please send us an update on the status as it is July already. We are excited to bask in the sweet sounds of the sexy Pocket sax.

      I agree with Yih Ching Ong. Please send the shipping survey since it's already July.

      Yih Ching Ong on

      Hello Nick and Rio,
      We would appreciate a quick update on what's going on at the moment, as it is now July. As mentioned by a previous poster, we would rather have the saxmonica first to play around with it, and then iron out any bugs with the app after. Is there any reason for the delay? Can you advise as to when you will realistically be shipping (I know the ETA says July 2018) but it is now July and emails for shipping have yet to be sent.
      Thanks & best wishes,

    40. Victor Bow on

      I really hope you guys arent using DHL. They always slap on handling fees

      excited to try this guy out!

      Text always sounds harsh, and that’s not my intent, but:

      I just turned 60, and my clock is ticking (and my brain is seriously fading away), so:

      (tick, tock, tick, tock, … ;-).

      There’s ALWAYS more problems in KS shipping than most people think, so don’t assume it will be an easy last step. Apps and backing tracks are fine, but should definitely come after you’ve at least started shipping. I mean, you ARE the only one who can make use of them now anyway.

      Some of us (at least me) had wanted to experiment and try to bring back our playing skills when we were in the college band, playing a “traditional” instrument and reading sheet music. Perhaps I’m just kidding myself…

      Getting worried about timelines, as surveys are crucial logistically; it's nearing the end of June, and yet you've collected nothing from backers yet. Can you provide updated timelines as to when we expect to receive the surveys and the Saxmonica? Cheers.
