Project Update: 🚢 Vessel/Cargo ship update

Hey Backers,

Just giving everyone an update regarding the vessel/cargo ship that has the EDC Organizers...


It has reached the California coast! It is now just about a day or two from docking at the Los Angeles Port. Per our last backer update, we hope to get more information and a timeline when we actually deliver rewards in a few days.

That's all for now. We will be back again soon!

Thanks!

Project Update: February 2024 Update



Here's what's been happening since I wrote you last:

  • My order hit the sea right before Chinese New Year!
  • It landed in Long Beach a few weeks ago
  • The Pitchers should arrive at my studio this week—Wednesday March 6 is the estimate
  • Coffee orders, tea orders, filter orders, sticker orders... lots of stuff being ordered
  • The shipping survey will be sent out this week

What this means for you:

  • The survey will be where you give me your shipping address, you will pay for shipping (as I did not collect any shipping fees during the campaign), and you'll have a chance to add on any additional items (like glassware)
  • If you are in Chicago, I encourage you to select "Local Pick Up" in the survey. I will announce an "open studio" event when I have the product available to get from my North Side Chicago storefront. If this date happens to not work for you, there will be other "business hours" announced as well.

Here we go!

Project Update: We have started shipping + Rim diameter questions

Jen and I have begun shipping SpectraTone Red mouthpieces beginning with brass body variations, as those are finished.

However, we have noticed a large percentage of rim diameter errors with many people telling us they play small mouthpieces while ordering very large sizes. To be clear, you can save yourself a lot of time and energy by reading the mouthpiece comparison chart, and choosing the best size. If you are currently playing a small mouthpiece with success, then we recommend staying on a small size.

Remember, at Harrelson, we measure the actual Rim diameter where it meets the cup, as this is the actual diameter. Most other manufacturers measure the high point of the rim, which results in an inaccurate and inflated number not representative of the actual size due to inner radius variations. This means that any manufacturer using a high point value for a specific size is likely overstating the diameter by 40-50 thousandths of an inch.

For example:
our 680 rim is larger in diameter than any rim we have ever measured, so it is unlikely you need to order something larger than 640 unless you play on very large rims.

Another example: our 614 rim is the exact diameter of pretty much all common 3 diameter rims from Bach and related copies.

One more note: Almost all Jet Tone and lead-type mouthpieces measure .590 and smaller. It is highly unusual to find a mouthpiece measuring larger than .590 that is shallow and used for lead work. A .590 is the equivalent of a Bach 7.

Thanks for listening, and hopefully learning! We really want to ship you the correct rim size, but it is up to you to read the mouthpiece chart at https://www.whyharrelson.com/rim-sizes.html to do this correctly. We cannot exchange rims once they have shipped.

Thank you again,
Jason and Jen

Project Update: Complete Your Backerkit Survey

Hi Everyone!

The Backerkit surveys have been sent to your email addresses.  They will arrive From: COINCIDE, The Natural Philosopher Collection.  Be sure to check your spam folder if you don’t see it in your inbox.

Thanks to those who have already completed their surveys!  Please complete the survey in a timely fashion as I hope to “lock the orders” next week and get the final counts to the mint for production.  You will see a final notice  just before I “lock the orders”, which is when your cards will be charged for shipping and anything you may have added-on in Backerkit.

For those that may be new to the process, the Backerkit survey platform is an efficient way for us to confirm your order, collect shipping addresses and shipping fees, and give you the opportunity to add-on more coins if you wish to do so.  The survey platform has a Need Help? link at the top right of the page, or you can always reach out directly to me by email at [email protected].

Have a great week.  Jason

Project Update: 📦 Fulfilment Has Begun!

Hello, everyone!


Fifth Edition museums have begun to ship! Last week, we sent out our first wave of pledges to backers and we've gotten word that they have started to arrive!

Currently, our warehouse is fulfilling pledges on Tuesdays through Fridays. Keep an eye on your email inbox over the coming weeks, as you can expect a notification on when your pledge ships there. First, you'll receive a confirmation that your payment for shipping, tax, and add-ons has been processed. Then, the shipping confirmation email indicating your pledge is being packaged and sent out!

We are preparing waves of pledges each shipping day and we can't wait to see the museums in your hands!

If you'd like to show off your new museum when it arrives, send us a picture at [email protected]. We always love to see Mini Museums out in the wild–backer photos are one of the best parts of crowdfunding!

That's all for now! If you have other questions, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]!

Project Update: Vessel information 🚢

Hey Backers,

We just received the vessel (container ship) information that your EDC organizers are on!


The vessel name is YM UNANIMITY and it is a Taiwan container ship and you can track it yourself on www.vesselfinder.com and/or www.marinetraffic.com

We do not have a subscription to these websites to get more detailed information but if any backers do, please feel free to share with the community.

It appears it is scheduled to dock at the Los Angeles Port (USLAX) on March 2nd. This is about 10 days from today! We initially thought it would dock at Long Beach Port but no big difference, the two ports are actually bordering one another.

It might take a few days from port to our home office and then we can begin reward fulfillment soon after. We will be back with another update as soon as they arrive.

Thank you for your continued patience!

Project Update: Zoom LIVE Video Sessions - Q&A today and tomorrow



Today at 12:30pm Mountain time, I will host a live Zoom session to answer your questions on SpectraTone Red upgrades and options. I've already worked with many backers on choosing a rim diameter and shape over the past week. If you did not back SpectraTone Red, but are considering buying one on the April 1st public release, this session could help you make your selections.

Remember, we will close all orders on Tuesday. If you miss this deadline, you miss this production run!
Your credit card will be charged for shipping and any upgrades this Wednesday.

We will begin shipping next Monday!

Join my Zoom session Sunday and Monday at 12:30pm here:
