I’m not a gofundme type of person, and so I’m a little grossed out and feel vaguely guilty posting this BUT I am now entering my second week of completely shutting down my store (which has no functional online sales component because I’m weird like that). My current lifeline is one of my pedal distributors/consortiums creating this temporary site to help us out, for which I’m unbelievably grateful. All proceeds will go to the store you select in the drop down menu (mine is Eclipse Music, but if you see one of your favorites in there, throw them the sale.) They’re vetting the list hardcore to only do this that are fully following through on total shutdown (no online sales, no curbside pickup, no “appointment only” garbage. Again, I feel weird even doing this, but I have to. Sorry for being so absent on here for a while, between City Council and store and small children and now this, it’s been a busy couple of years.Here’s the link: Thanks friends. See you on the other side of all of this.

YAY THERE IT IS!!!
(going to browse now!)
It’s all really cool small builder stuff - the other bonus is that the builders get their usual dealer payment at a time where they’ve got basically no orders coming in - I’ve been worried about that side too, I don’t want to come out of this thing with half of the builders I know hanging it up.

If you all have any questions on the stuff listed there, I have played it all and can share my somewhat expressionistic take on what they sound like.

Oh and by the way, purchases are invisible to me (just a lump sum PayPal deposit every Friday) so if I don’t overtly thank anyone in this thread, that’s why.

Teespring has some deal where you get a bigger cut of merch than usual. I threw my store logo on some shirts and bags (and a throw pillow) and actually sold a couple yesterday.

$16 isn’t likely to keep the lights on but it beats nothing.
