His website is still up though.......not that that means anything.
What I personally fail to understand if why he didn't have those cups made in a cheap labor country and simply assemble them. For the kind of money he was asking and the amount of backorders he seemed to have, he could have cashed in like crazy for years/decades. At this point, many ppl prolly filed official complains and he's killed the golden goose altogether. Of course, that's assuming that he's still alive indeed. But it's weird how some MOT's often seem to turn down on their customers at some point.
I think I have a good idea what happened, but would rather not post it in a public forum. I did not purchase in this group buy, but did so, on my own, in June. And I have not received my order either. I sympathize and empathize with you folks a year out, on their orders....
I hope you've all been well. It looks like Christmas came early this year! Upon returning home the other day, I was flummoxed to find a box addressed to me waiting on the porch. I was not expecting a package and had no idea what it could be. I was both excited and a bit intrigued, and rather than reading the return address on the box I instead rushed to open it and discover its contents. I was stunned--there before my eyes laid a pair of Thunderpants! I am happy to report that they both look and sound amazing. To all those who are still waiting, don't lose hope. I have been told by a trusted source that several pairs of Thunderpants have recently shipped and more are coming. I hope that everyone still waiting receives their Thunderpants soon, and wish everyone the happiest of holidays!
What wood is that? Ziricote? Looks like the one I got. How you guys finding the sound? I find the sound are very sensitive to placements.
