I think you should update the op post with list of people, order form link and maybe a quote from smeggy's acceptable wood list

So yeah, here's the list of people (can't exceed 15) that seem to be "in" the group buy. 

 

People interested, if you're not anymore PM me:

1) Radio_Head [amboyna burl if you have it (I'd pay the extra cost on it), otherwise Koa or quilted maple. + 02 pads]

2) Draygonn

3) SLaRe

4) TIMITS

5) LFG530

6) moostrkraaft

7)anetdote

8)googeli

9)craigerson

10)  zowki

11) sperandeo

12)dragoonv 

13)bobeau 

14) than

15) Brentatent12

 

 

Waiting list. Not sure about the order... Someone missing or that doesn't belong there?

1) Jalo

2) NU62

3) monotune

4) drgajet

5) asticou  

 

Most of the woods choices: 

 

Cherry
walnut
Koa
Purpleheart
Yellowheart
Redheart
cocobolo
East indian, bolivian, honduran rosewood
bloodwood
seaple
Katalox
mahogany
lacewood
zebrawood
Ash
poplar
chechen
maple, hard, curly, spalted and quilted

 

You can choose the pads as you wish (they'll cost you the "cost"). 

 

Here's a form to give an idea to smeggy to what he'll have to deal with: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dEFzWjhzdlNlN0gyZDJ5ZzJhUHFJNnc6MQ

 

By the way how can we see the results, because if let's say 12 out of 15 agreed on one wood choice I think it could be nice to know and also how many people said they're 100% commited.

post #95 of 879

Was unable to get an email throughout to Smeggy about buying a pair so here I am signing up if a spot opens up put me in. I filled out the form.

Thanks M

post #96 of 879
Is it possible to post the "waiting list". It seems i didn't make the list even though I committed rather early.
post #97 of 879
I also would like to be added to the waiting list if possible

post #99 of 879

UPDATE:  (11/10/2011 1:41 AM):  To those interested in being added to the waiting list, please be advised that there is no guarantee there will be second group buy, let alone a third one (which the last several people on the list would be in currently).  Thank you for your understanding.

 

UPDATE:  (10/17/2011 3:17AM) Pricing sheet now available!

(A copy of this post will be updated to post #99 for continuity and convenience sake.)

 

To whom it may concern:

 

After much anticipation, the wait is finally over!  Please find below a link to the final spreadsheet which includes pricing information for everyone who was included in the final 15.  Note:  This list also includes comments and additional information from Gary about your specific order.  I'm not sure exactly how actual payment will work yet, but hopefully I will have the details for you soon.  Please take this opportunity to review your orders one last time and ready your cash!  =)  I'll provide more details on the payment process as they become available.

 

Order Sheet with Pricing!

 

Gary has asked that I pass along the following information to everyone, however, this should be redundant as these numbers have already been calculated into your order prices.

 

Pads:

Beyer velours are 40 shipped

Audeze pads are 92 shipped
O2 pads are 155 shipped
 
Woods:
Blackwood adds 35
Macassar adds 45
Koa adds 25
Ziricote adds 35
 
*The Macassar is turning out to cost the most as I can only get oversize blocks which still only makes 1 set.

 

If you have any questions from this point on, please contact either Gary or myself, dependent upon question matter.

 

Thanks,

 

Brent

*You may find your names in green on the list below.

 

--------------------------------------

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

In order to keep things organized, I have created a shared document which may be accessed via this link.  If you have already filled out the form and need to update information, such as your wood choice (for those in the first ten who have not gotten back to me yet), please post it on the document preceded by your username as per the instructions at the top of the page.  Also, please use this page if you have any general questions for me.  Thank you.

--------------------------------------

Hi everyone.  I stepped away for a little while and it seems I've missed a lot.  

 

Currently, the following people have filled out information form. Please note that, since smeggy has kindly offered to allow us to select any wood from the list we desire, people who have already filled out the form can let me know what they want.  I will update their preferences accordingly.  Rather then spamming the board with your wood choice, can you simply send me a PM with it?  As soon as the remainder of those who are interested fill out the form, I can get it finalized and verified by everyone.  Thanks!

 

Already filled out the form (please send me 1 wood choice via PM).

UPDATE:  The form has been updated so that users filling it out from this point onward may only choose one type of wood to help avoid confusion.

UPDATE 3:  List will be updated periodically throughout the day.

UDPATE 4:  Waiting on SLaRe to fill out the form to progress to stage 2.

UDPATE 5:  Evidently I've been using the wrong original list as reference.  Please be advised that the current list here now reflects updates made from post 1, and that I will use post 1 as reference from this point forward.  I'd like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have cased anyone.  Thanks.

DISCLAIMER:  I cross-reference the list on post #93 to determine who's on the waitlist or not, in order to be fair to those who initailly showed interest.

I would also like to be in the waiting list if a spot opens up. I have filled out the form.

post #101 of 879

Filled it out as well, just back to the forum and spent the evening reading up on these. Hopefully more will be made at this price.

Even Jude's set isn't optimal now.
 


Does that mean that the ones we will have will be better than Jude's? :)

Since we filled out a list of 15 buyers in two days and have 6 people waiting, I don't think that would be too tough to organise a second group buy after smeggy will be done with this one (if he is still open to that idea). 

post #104 of 879

I call first on the list for the second group buy after this one (or after all the waiting list guys so far).

I'd like to get in on the waitlist too. Will fill out form. I don't care about wood choice or pads.
