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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Risks and challenges
RISKS and CHALLENGES: No one wants something this awesome to go to waste…especially when we have worked extremely hard to get this product ready to manufacture. This Kickstarter campaign will help us launch the complete manufacturing and fulfillment Tru Tuner: FX Series. Risks and challenges are a part this process, but you can count on our team to resolve any issue that could arise.
MANUFACTURING: We have fine tuned and tested this product for the past two years. We are working with the same high quality factory and engineers as our previous product. The molds to create a high quality product are very expensive, but necessary. We need your help with the final funds to start manufacturing. The lead time is 30 days on this first run. We do not expect any delays, as we have tested this product with hundreds of drummers. We have refined this product many times, in hopes to help eliminate any delays in the manufacturing process.
FULFILLMENT: Although we do not anticipate any delays, things can happen; ie manufacturing issues, quality control, shipping issues and etc. We have worked in this industry for years and have great supply partners and knowledge of the process.
YOUR PLEDGE brings us one step closer to our goal, which is to make great innovative products to help all drummers. Please consider this innovative new product and help us reach our goal. There are two ways that you can help: 1) Please click the “Back This Project” button at the top of the page and 2) Help us spread the word by sharing our project with your drummer friends!
Thank you for your support! We have worked hard for years developing this, now all we need is YOUR support!
