      Oh I see now, the £120 *includes* shipping!

      Oh but then when I hit “Manage my pledge” it then says £106. Super weird.

      Odd, I have Advanced Early Bird as my pledge and Kickstarter’s UI (in iOS app) says £120.

    7. Soundbops Creator on March 17

      Hi Felix,

      We have the Advanced Pack Early Bird at £106 and the Advanced Pack as £120.

      Thanks,
      Michael

      Why do the Advanced Pack and the Advanced Pack Early Bird have the same price?

      We will see what we can do!!

      I'm still hoping you'll add bagpipes, but I admit adding a "bop" for each embellishment would be expensive!

      Hi Michael,

      Thank you very much for your support! We really appreciate it

      Congratulations on meeting your funding goal! I think this is a really interesting project. I backed a the "Expert" level, even though my kids are all grown. I want to see what it can do, and will likely give it away at Christmas.

      Hi Nadezhda thank you for reaching out! Yes, the product will be delivered the first half of December we will keep you updated!

      In what period do you plan to deliver our orders? 1st half of December?

    15. Soundbops Creator on March 13

      HI Nadezhda!,

      Unfortunately we have not had any other interest from Russia. If you have some friends in other countries we can definitely deliver there!

      Let me know :)
      Thanks,

      Hi Rebecca,
      Thanks for pointing that out! We were slightly too ambitious with 2000! The post needs to be shared 100 times. I will update it.

      Hi, guys!!!

      Do we have other backers from Russia to make delivery for us?
      Or do I need to check my friends from certain countries for making delivery to one of their addresses?

      Hi. In update #4 it mentions sharing the post 200 times. On the Campaign page under Upgrade your Soundbops it says to share 1000 and 2000 times. Just checking if it needs to be shared 200 or 2000. Thanks! :)

      Hi Amy,
      Good question. It will be different for each child.
      A rough guide is:
      Age 3-5: Starter
      Age 6-9: Advanced
      Age 10+ Expert

      Thanks,
      Michael

      What is the suggested age range for each of the levels? I don't want something that my 6 year old son may outgrow in only a few years due to the expense. Thanks :)

      Hi Ledioron,

      Thanks for the question! We are focusing on Apple products at the moment.
      You will be able to connect through MIDI Bluetooth to 3rd party Andriod apps and computer programs.

      Unfortunately there are not that many on Andriod as Andriod is not great for MIDI. As Andriod improves we will improve our presence on it.

      Thank you,
      Michael

      Hi Michael D. Hensley,
      Your welcome!
      As a Scotsman I will see what we can do to add the bagpipes!
      Thanks,
      Michael

    25. Soundbops Creator on March 4

      Hi Agnieszka,
      Thanks for the question!
      The campaign is EU friendly, you will not have to pay tax.
      We are a VAT registered UK company.

      Thanks,
      Michael

      Thanks for the clarification! That makes sense - two sets for each of two octaves.

      Speaking as a piper, I have one more question: any chance of adding bagpipes to the mix? :)

      Hi, I have just joined:) is the campaign UE friendly or will I have to pay tax for a delivery to Germany?

    28. Soundbops Creator on March 3

      Also we will be selling extra books and song books after the campaign.
      We have the capability of adding extra octaves if there is enough demand.

    29. Soundbops Creator on March 3

      Hi Danielle,

      If you increase your pledge amount by adding the value of the other pack(s) that you would like, we will send you the extra packs as well.

      Just message me to say which ones you would like.
      Thanks,
      Michael

      Hi Michael,
      Is there a way to get let’s say a starter kit and an expert or expert and advanced set? Also will there be other octaves available after the Kickstarter is over?

    33. Soundbops Creator on March 3

      Hi Michael D. Hensley,
      Thanks for the comment! Sorry our wording is not the most clear.
      For the advanced pack you get 24 different bops.
      A 12 tone chromatic scale starting at C3
      Plus a 12 tone chromatic scale starting at C4

      For the expert pack you we give you two of each bop in the advanced pack.

      We have more detail in the reward section of our story.
      Thanks,
      Michael

      @Ron Smelser.

      Thank you for the comment! If you increase your pledge to double the amount we will send you two!

      Has anyone asked: the "Expert" says 48 notes over 2 octaves, but 2 octaves is only 28 notes.

      MichaEL,

      I wanted to pledge for two Soundbops for two families. There was no way to do this to help the project move forward. This is very unfortunate. I think that this is a great project.

      Thanks Enrique! We are glad you are excited.
      We just hit 100% !!!

      Hi Michael,
      That sounds really interesting, thank you so much! I've adjusted my pledge accordingly. I'm really excited about this campaign! :D
      Thanks,
      Enrique.

    39. Soundbops Creator on March 2

      Hi Enrique,
      Great question!
      We will sell the kits after Kickstarter. We have designed our levels to be suitable for different ages and abilities and to grow with your child as they get more interested in music!
      We will also be developing different products to fit into the range!
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hi! What a very interesting project!
      I have a question... Will you be selling Advanced and Expert kits (additional keys + books 2 and 3) on retail independently after the KS campaign is over and shipped to backers?
      It would be nice to have the possibility of pledging for the basic level and then, if my kids are definitely interested in learning music (I'll encourage them to, but you never know!), then buy the additional keys for the other levels.
      Thanks!

      Good morning,
      I really like the idea, but i think it's a bit expensive?! I'm working as a teacher for special education and you might know about the finances of schools. Maybe you could offer a pledge option for educational institutes?
      Kind regards from germany

      Hi Gaspard, thanks for the comment! It requires 4 x AA batteries. We will update the page to include this detail.

      Thanks @nadezha We will keep you update. Please share with your Russian friends and we can maybe get more backers!

      Hi Nadezhda, thank you for reaching out! My apologies for the delay in responding, we were working out if we could do it or not.
      Unfortunately we are currently unable to deliver to Russia as we are concentrating on a select few countries to ensure we are able to effectively deliver for Christmas.
      However, if there are more Russian Backers then we would be able to do it :)
