Regarding the current situation
We would like to thank you all for keeping us so busy during the pandemic! To show gratitude for your support we have been working extremely hard to up our game regarding shipping times. And we are proud to say that as of today, July 2nd at 4:33 p.m., we are caught up with all kits except for some Kaiju and BeePre orders. Yes, as of this afternoon we are even caught up on Crack kits! We shipped the last eleven in the queue today and we even kitted ten kits ahead (yup, Speedball upgrade kits too). So the first 10 Crack kit orders coming in over the July 4th holiday weekend will most probably ship next week. Just a reminder – WA is still pretty much in high alert mode regarding the virus. Masks are required any time one goes out. We intend to keep our facility closed to the public until things get safe. Meantime we are there for you on the Bottlehead Forum, FB, IG, by email and by phone.

“A big here here to y’all! I sold my SEX and Reduction the first weekend San Francisco entered shelter in place and will leave quarantine with a brand new StereomourII and Eros2. You guys did a great job of getting both kits down here fast and I really appreciated the help from Eileen and PB getting order and build questions answered. I finished the Stereomour on Thursday night and had my first real listening session last night. I am so blown away. I can’t wait to wrap the Eros to see what this baby can do with vinyl, but I’m limiting myself to one section per day so that I don’t run out of build before lockdown ends. It’s been vital to mental health to disconnect from the world and focus on a project like this. I’m glad to have a hobby that allows me to be a responsible adult and WANT to stay home!”
