Preorder Status Updates and Shipping ETA's

Posted by Simon Glover on

We know you're excited to receive your new PIRATE MIDI products, but with a two-man team we're limited in the number of units we can produce at a time. 

We get heaps of questions about preorder statuses and shipping ETA's. 

Direct messages and emails only slow us down, so we decided to create a page you can check anytime you're itching for an update. We'll update it anytime there's a change in our production timeframes. 

Our production batches often sell out before they're all assembled, so we encourage you to place a preorder as soon as you can. It means we can make more accurate production estimates, and it means you won't have to wait until the next batch. 

Here's the link to our Preorders Status page.
