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.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

I've been making really cool and totally original boutique guitar effects pedals for many years but I badly want to reach out to more people and that means embracing more expensive production techniques. In this case what I need is enough interested people that I can get double-sided circuit boards professionally made. Everything else is in place, I have all the tools and a room full of magic just waiting to be used for this.

If this project works out then I have plans for numerous much more daring and cool pedals involving micro tubes and gyro sensors and some really crazy-fun concepts! So you aren't just investing in a one-off but in a whole range of really cool future pedals. This booster is just the beginning!

Risks and challenges

I've made loads of pedals and I know what I'm doing. Check out AudioStorm to see my history. Risk of non-delivery is zero. Period. I'm happy to stake my company and reputation against that.

If I end up with vastly more backers than expected that could mean some of you have to wait a little longer since I am hand-making these, but that's a worst-case (also best case!) scenario.
