What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

A Bluetooth 4.0 Page Turner for Hassle-free Music Performances

STOMP is a rugged, floor-based, and hands-free performance solution. It utilizes Bluetooth 4.0 technology to ensure you never lose your place while performing again.

You know you can put all your chord charts, setlists, and sheet music in PDFs on your tablet. But how is it more convenient if you still take your hands off your instrument to swipe to the next page?

Now you can swipe through your music completely hands-free.

Step 1. Connect the STOMP to your tablet.

Step 2. Tap the STOMP to turn through your sheet music.

STOMP puts seamless transitions and intuitive control right at your feet. This allows you to keep your hands on your instrument, your mind on your performance, and your heart on your music. 

What Makes STOMP the Ultimate Page Turner?

The STOMP does all this...

 

 

 

STOMP sends left/right arrow, up/down arrow, page up/down, space/enter keyboard commands to work with nearly every music app on the market

But those are just the basics. Professionals deserve more. We also built-in…

 

 

 

 

     

Using all these killer features on the STOMP makes all your gigs easier. It’s the ultimate page turner. All you have to do is…

1. Power on the STOMP by pressing the silver power button. 

2. Turn on Bluetooth on your tablet. The STOMP shows up as a keyboard named “Coda Music Tech.”

3. Open your sheet music or chord chart app on your tablet

4. Select one of the four function modes by scrolling through the mode selection switch.

5. Start playing!

The STOMP is so easy to use, kids learning how to play their first instrument will be turning pages in minutes. And seasoned pros will find it to be the ultimate addition to their performance.

 

 What Other Page Turners Are Missing

My frustration was at an all time high. I couldn’t believe I’d just spent $100 on a piece of gear that made it just 30 minutes into the set. Blame it on cheap, brittle, good-for-nothing plastic.

I searched and searched online, but no luck. Everything on the web was a different version of the same thing. The reviews weren’t promising either.

Everyone agreed these Bluetooth page turners were terrible! As a musician, don’t you wish there was a pedal out there that works as hard as you gig after gig?

That is why I created the STOMP. Because it is meant to be STOMPed on. I’ve been a gigging musician for over 15 years. I know how hard it is to find roadworthy gear. The stuff that will last and be with you for a decade.

And it should make your life on stage easier and less stressful than it is now. That way you can focus on your best performance ever.

 

What We’ve Done So Far

Our first ready-to-ship STOMP!
Our first ready-to-ship STOMP!

In 2015, I founded Coda Music to make a Bluetooth page turner that did just this. When I first released it on Amazon, it quickly shot up to the top spot. I was getting glowing reviews faster than I ever expected because I built what musicians wanted. But I knew we could do better.

First, I sat down with music industry veterans to ask them about their favorite music gear. Then I wrote down a wish list of all the things we cover bands, church groups, instrumentalists, and orchestra players needed...the STOMP was born!

The STOMP has been under development since January 2017. We’ve sent exclusive prototypes to loyal fans in the field and are partnering with a top manufacturer. Musicians have been testing all the STOMP’s features during real gigs for 2+ months. The STOMP works and our early-adopter fans love it.

We also have a track record for creating top music gear. Our first page turner was a smash success with musicians of all walks. In the process, the STOMP is being anticipated by big music industry names like…

  • Gary Lunn, the bassist for Michael W. Smith
  • J. Daniel Smith, a Dove award winning producer in the Christian music industry
  • Mark Hill, the bassist for Keith Urban
  • Scott Sheriff, the keyboardist for Carrie Underwood

And we've got grassroots support from bands across the country...

Bands like Da Vang, Bearing Armor, The Clankly Lincolns, Royal Flush and the Jacks of All Trades, VOiD808, Alan Foust Acoustic, Ralph Light, and more!

These top session musicians and local bands are only a handful of the pros that have been begging us to make the STOMP. The STOMP is factory ready. The fans want it. Now we need your help to go all the way with us to the main stage of high volume manufacturing.

 

 

Risks and challenges

We've partnered with a seasoned team of product designers, musicians, and engineers. Our team has experience bringing revolutionary music products to market. The first Bluetooth page turner we created was on time, on budget, and a big hit with all musicians surfing the web.

STOMP’s early beta testers say that this release is our best product yet. Maybe even Triple Platinum.

Today, our biggest risk is being able to fulfill our orders beyond the minimum initial production run of 500 STOMP page turners. If we can place a larger initial order, we can get larger discounts and provide additional goodies to STOMP fans.

It's our plan to start production before the end of the campaign. We’re working with trustworthy manufacturers so there will be no delays at the factory.

Now we need YOU to back and share our campaign for hungry musicians everywhere! I can’t wait to see your band’s best performance ever while using the STOMP. If you have any questions, reach me at rob@codamusictech.com at any time.

Rock on,

Rob and the Coda Music Team
