87 years old with Saxmonica in hand.

Posted by Nicholas Millington , Rio Millington, (Creator)

Hi there.  

This is my 87 year old mum with a heart condition and Saxmonica in hand.

Her Christmas present.  Rio is her coach but just goes to show music is possible anytime. 

Its either gonna lengthen her life or shorten it .  Maybe I will know in a few days.

If its the latter then Im  heading back to New Zealand to play the Saxmonica blues at her funeral.

      It is now February 2018 and still no Saxmonicas! Still no correspondence apart from generic stuff!
      My email address is:
      Rather than enter into pointless pinging of emails, just send me two Saxmonicas pronto...

      Hi Niel Donald
      I hope you get this message.
      We are really sorry about the delays. Since we shipped the Saxmonicas , it’s really been out of our hands. We have been pushing from our end and feel a little let down by the freight companies involved.
      If you get this message please direct mail me so I can respond directly.
      We have some great additions we are adding to the Saxmonica sound so hang in for a little bit longer. I think it will be worth the wait.
      Kickstarter is an amazing platform but as we have had to develop and produce an instrument from scratch it’s had its challengers.
      None of the problems have been intentional from our side and we are quite happy to work with the likes of yourself and a few others rpthat still haven’t recieved their Saxmonicas .
      as we really want to full fil our obligations.
      Please message me direct via Kickstarter and we can work through either path you choose
      Many thanks

      I want a refund. Six months late delivery far exceeds any normal purchase contract.

      I am resident in the UK, I have not received the two Saxmonicas I paid for months ago. Once again when are you going to get them to me?
