In the event of a beer spill, wouldn’t it go in through the arcade buttons too? And also all my other expensive pedals?I wanted one for each Automatone I have, but not for $80 ea.. I’m out. Maybe if it was $30-$40 max.
It’d probably be cheaper than $80 to send an Automatone to CBA to fix in the rare eventuality of someone ever spilling a beer on it.
Agreed. If I’m honest, I’ve never been worried about the Automatones and have a lidded board as well. The chance of dumping liquid on them in the situations/venues I play in is near zero.In the event of a beer spill, wouldn’t it go in through the arcade buttons too? And also all my other expensive pedals?
Yeah seeing as I have a padded hard shell case for my board for moving it around, and I like access to the faders when I’m using it, I don’t see the point for me.
ha. I was just telling a friend they’re the Apple of the pedal world now w this stupid ass release.Maybe Chase Bliss will go full Apple on us and remove the 1/4" jacks too.
This is nowhere near my cost on this item but let’s say it is. The cool thing about life is that you too can risk everything and start your own company. You can work outrageous hours for years, not get paid a cent, have it almost cost your marriage etc. You can do that if you want. Maybe if you work really hard and get super lucky people will care about your work and start buying it, and somehow & someway a few years later you are lucky enough to employ 13 people at a living wage with benefits (proper healthcare, dental, retirement, vacation, etc). Then, maybe a bunch of people will request an accessory that you don’t really feel like making but you respect your customers enough to design it, manufacture it, store it, and sell it for a price that many people think is a decent enough value to buy that thing… and you can make a little money on top of it to further your business and the people that make it up. Maybe after all that happens you will sell that thing for $5. I really doubt that will happen and you will make that decision, but heck, we don’t know each other so maybe that will happen. Seems totally legit and reasonable.Likely about $5 worth of parts/materials and selling for $79. Seems totally legit and reasonable.
I mean, bravo for getting people stoked to spend $80 on a piece of plastic. This shows true marketing and branding genius.sheeeeesh. tough crowd. We've seen a lot of comments of "great idea until I spill beer on it" on a lot of platforms, i'd be surprised if there wasn't some on TGP specifically.
The polycarbonate is manufactured by www.decksaver.com in the UK ... an excellent company and $79 is certainly not outrageous when compared to their other offerings.
If you don't think you need it, that's fantastic, I don't think I'll be using one on my personal units but a lot of people have been asking and are stoked on these.
I'm not trying to turn this into a business thread... and I very sincerely appreciate your interest and support in our work. But despite the high sticker price of CXM 1978, it has our worst margin of any product we make. It's already tricky to make these at all, and have them work in a distribution network. Besides, as most people on this thread could attest to, they don't want nor are interested in the FaderShield. Why in the heck would I add in an accessory that a lot of people don't even find value in... and in turn, need to raise the end price of the pedal for something lots of people won't use?i mean, that about sums it up, right? im a chase bliss fan. i have several of their pedals, including the cxm. but i mean, cmon. 80 bucks for a piece of plastic to protect a 900 dollar pedal feels a little insulting if you ask me. it should be included, given the cost of the pedals. not an 80 dollar solution to a possible oversight of an already egregiously priced pedal.
