Hearing it first by playing it was what I was hoping for, but at this point I would just love to hear and see it in a video.

At one time Karl had a video posted of him playing one of his prototypes somewhere on the website.   I wish I could remember where I saw it.

I think he just held it up, but didn't play it. I could be wrong.

I think it's important to understand that at the same time these prototypes are being refined, regular single-chamber MOs have to be produced. Each prototype variant it's time-consuming to build, from Karl's description of the process, so it can take a long time to test a small number of variations individually. Combining them obviously takes even longer.

Well it has been about 6 months since this thread started.  I was wondering how much sooner it will be before the pro-range hits the shelves so to speak?

All I'm going to say is, "Just make sure these questions stay on the forums and don't keep Karl away from his work with phone/email responses."

I don't have an answer to that, but I can say in general terms that the development process is exceedingly slow for a number of reasons. The main one, however, is that the turnaround time for getting a prototype, testing, and creating a modified prototype is quite lengthy -- easily a month, sometimes more.

The prototype I tested in late 2014 was pretty much ready for market, by may standards, but Karl's standards are several rungs higher than mine! As I think I mentioned, he really wanted to reduce the size of a couple of the tone holes. That's anything but easy to do, without throwing the tuning of the whole thing off; so he had to do a lot of experimentation, and there's just no way to do it quickly.

Anyway, last I heard, he has a prototype he's pretty happy with, so that's very promising.

I hope that the new model comes out soon.  The online store is out of stock of hardwood and warmstone instruments.

If you're in a rush, there appear to be a couple of "seconds" still available on this list :

Can you be a little more specific, or are you bound to secrecy?

I just hope you haven't taken a blood oath or anything like that.

I'm not bound to secrecy, but I don't want to say anything out of turn either. A lot has been going on in the year since I started this thread, and when I did so neither Karl not I thought it would take a year to get to where things are now. Otherwise I wouldn't have started it, just to avoid raising expectations.

But I can say that things have moved forward a great deal, obstacles have been overcome, and we should have an announcement very soon.

I've been waiting for this since 2008. I know Karl has been waiting, and working, a lot longer than that.
