New run of Count to 5's announced (Sept 2015)

We have opened another preorder for count to fives. You can find it here. The order will be open from now till Oct 5th, or until it sells out, which ever comes first.

Edit: we will leave orders open till the 7 or 8th  of October, but they will close by the end of the week.

Hi there, i did pre order this, just to be sure, did anything happen since the pre order phase? i'm really affraid i might have lost mails or stuff :-) (i guess the pedals are not done yet.. but it's better to ask in case they are done and you are wondering why this guy isn't answering mails :D)

You should just have an order confirmation email at this point in time. No other emails/updates have been sent so it's safe to assume that the original target date of late November is still planned unlessyou receive news about any possible delays. Just be patient, the pedal is worth the wait.

If this batch is done like the last then you will be instructed at a later point to pay the remaining balance owed through their online store. In their store they will have an item listed as the remaining balance due for the CT5. This is NOT to place a new order/pre-order, you have to wait for the next pre-order period. This should be purchased ONLY by customers who have pre-ordered and payed the deposit fee.

Scott said...

@Vincent,

Don't worry no news has been sent out. We will start updating the blog though with our progress so people can have an idea of what's going on/where we are at. Thank you for your enthusiasm regarding this product!

Is the late Nov shipping still likely? With Xmas around it'd be good to know.... so that I can spend now what's saved for the CT5 balance and can start saving again and be prepared for shipping in .... ? Cheers, Gabor

Dave Maddux said...

Are there any plans for extra pedals to go on sale from this batch once the preorders are satisfied? I missed the preorder unfortunately.

Scott said...

@one male individual
We will post some updates soon regarding the timeline. You will have lots of warning and also we have some grace period on final payment.

@dave maddux
We are producing about 10% more than orders, but since there is always defects and scrap along the way I cannot yet say if any will be available at the end. We will make more after this run though either way.

one male individual said...

@Scott thanks, sounds good. If you're ready to ship later this month I'll proceed with the final payment right upon receiving the 'your CT5 is ready to go, please pay' mail, so that I'll get it before the xmas mail-frenzy.

josh gron said...

I'm in the same boat as @dave maddux. What is the best way to find out about potential extras in this batch? Do you have an email list?

Scott said...

@josh gron

There is a box in the top right corner of the page.

Is the Space Station ready yet?

TG Martin said...

I just wanted to make sure that I'm getting any "news" that may have been sent out via email to pre-order paid customers. I thought I was subscribed to the list as I paid the deposit in Sept. Haven't seen anything in my inbox ... Thanks.

one male individual said...

Like Scott mentioned here earlier, the news are still yet to come. Originally late november was defined as the start of shipping so I guess we're still good with 8 more days to go. Anyways, I try to focus on how fantastic the CT5 is and that it'll be worth not just the price but the wait as well. That said, I'm still hoping I can start tweaking my CT5 in this calendar year. :)

Scott said...

Hi,

Yes I will be sending out an email on Friday with an update. There has been no news.

TG Martin said...

Whoops. Thanks Scott. Didn't mean to be a pest. I should've read the previous posts a little closer ... YAY!

Don't be sleeping on a cot deep in thought
Giving it second thought cuz ya just overbought
Act quick like ya racing a yacht
Ya ought to buy from my boy Scott
Da highly saught cosmonaut
His pedal is hot like ya girl doing a squat
Ya know you have a weak spot
For that empty spot on the board ya got
Missing on this pedal you should not
It's not a long shot give it a shot
Mine is bought and waiting by the mail slot

Jimothy Binty-Tweeb said...

Have I completely missed the boat on the Count To Five? Will there be a chance to pre-order one of a new batch soon? If I miss out on one of these, my heart my break!!!

No pressure, Scott... none at all. :)

Jimothy Binty-Tweeb said...

*MIGHT break, sorry...

Scott said...

@Jimothy

we will make more next year. I'm not sure if we will do pre orders again or not, but more will be available early 2016. Best bet is to sign up for for the newsletter.

@TG Martin

No worries, probably we should communicate more frequently with the people who made pre orders, but it has been quite busy, and there hasn't been much to say.

Lowell Levene-Sims said...

Hey Scott. I somehow deleted the email with my order confirmation. Am I going to need that for paying the balance when the time comes? Thanks in advance.

Scott said...

@Lowell, No but I have just sent it to you for reference.

Anonymous said...

Is there going to be any update on pre orders before the end of the year?

Anonymous said...

Scott has answered that question already.
If you preordered for the last batch then you should've received an email stating a possible late December/January shipment date. Just be patient.

If you're looking to make a new preorder that's sometime next year after the current batch is done. Sign up for the newsletter and again be patient. You'll have plenty of time to make a preorder if it's an option then.

Vincent R said...

Well, i should have received an email about the ct5 as scott said, problem is, i didn't..i'll be checking my spams.
So, i'm in the dark at the moment

Scott said...

@anon
I am just waiting for the main pcb assemblies to come back from fab. We will have more updates asap.

@Vincent R
Yes I sent an email ~ Nov 27 iirc so maybe check your spam. If you use Gmail you can also easily make a filter to always accept email from mtl.asm@gmail.com. I have had some people have similar issues so maybe it is a good idea. However, please also feel free to contact me through email directly. Sometimes i get a bit behind on emails but will always eventually respond.

It's a shame so many of these are on Reverb already for double the price. Sucks for the people that really wanted them.

Anonymous said...

Those that really wanted them would have made the preorder which was extended. There was plenty time for these folks to order one and it will again be available so no need to pay those outrageous fees unless you absolutley hate waiting.

Anonymous said...

I don't mind paying a little extra for missing the preorder but anything $450 and up is literally double the price. I saw one listing for $1000 last week on eBay!

one male individual said...

Any news on when the Sep 2015 preored batch will actually begin shipping? Thanks. And happy 2016.
(just for the record: I've never been this patient in my life.... and have never waited this long for anything.. :) :)

Anonymous said...

Just for laughs try getting on the King of Tone wait list.

Anonymous said...

I'll sell you the next CT5 for $449.99

Scott said...

@one male
yes we will ship them soon. I outsourced some of the production but it is taking longer than was advertised to get the work back. hopefully it is here this week or next a the latest, then we can start shipping.

@anon
We will probably have extra up for grabs and be opening more orders the same day we start shipping.

Unknown said...

I have read the entire thread here, and I apologize if I missed this somewhere along the way. Did any info go out regarding paying the balance of the September preorder? I got the update email about the batch being pushed back, but I can't find that email now and I haven't seen anything else about paying the remaining balance. Any info is appreciated and sorry for any redundancy.

Alexander Penney said...

Nothing about that has been said/sent out. Presumably waiting til they can ship all the pedals before asking for money. I've never been so eager to pay for something.

Scott said...

@Unknown
No problem, we will send out another update tomorrow. Basically I am just waiting for some outsourced work to arrive, then we can start shipping. It should arrive soon. Sorry for the delays.

Ryan Takach said...

Hey Scott, did you send another update yet? I did not recieve one.

one male individual said...

No update yet... they said it's this week... or the next maybe.

@Ryan,

Sorry we were waiting for some information regarding the work we outsourced. I will send the update tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

Scott did that update go out?

Jan-Paul said...

Yeah, i keep feeling like I'm missing something when you say your sending an update and nothing comes

one male individual said...

...the only thing we're missing here is Scott's email with the update, which hasn't happened yet....

Scott said...

@jan
We have sent out the update today and updated with a new blog post because it seems form the last update many people are losing the msg to spam filters.

The information is the same in both msgs if you do not get the email.

Jan-Paul said...

Yeah, that was my worry. I have you on my safe list though, I will just keep checking here for updates then

Scott said...

@jan

Ok great we will be in touch soon then. But we will also now always post a blog post with the same info around the same time just in case.
