Noble is pleased to announce the Seattle, WA tour!
Sign-up for the tour will take place this week and the demo package will go out this Friday, August 15th, to the first recipient. In addition to the Noble line of IEMs and CIEMs, the tour will also feature a Chord Hugo and accompanying accessories.
I think it goes without saying that the gear included in this tour is extremely valuable (despite popular belief we do not have an abundance of demo products lying around) and we ask that all gear is properly looked after (and ultimately returned to us). The purpose of the tour is to give those who are genuinely interested in Noble and live in the Seattle or Washington area a chance to demo the Noble line as I was not able to make the latest Seattle meet.
As far as the duration of the tour is concerned, I envision this running right up to the beginning of October at which point we will be gearing back up for a couple of shows.
If you are interested in participating in the tour, please indicate by posting "I intend to participate in the tour and agree to the terms outlined in first post of the thread." below and also your general location in WA (ex. Seattle or Bellingham). Please also indicate which IEMs/CIEMs you are most interested in demoing.
I will personally PM the first person of the tour to obtain their full contact details and after that it is the responsibility of whoever has the demos to contact the next person in line and arrange for suitable postage or alternative arrangements (ex. handing the demos off in person). My idea is to have the demos circulate through the city of Seattle first, before venturing out into other towns/cities in WA.
This thread will be updated with a schedule of tour participants and each participant is subject to approval. Seeing that we are not collecting deposits or anything like that as frankly the deposit would have to be quite large to offset the potential loss of the demos, new or otherwise shady Head-Fi members will not be able to participate.
Last, the time each person has with the demos will be ultimately determined by how many people sign up. If too many people sign up, then those that registered first will be given right to first refusal.
Of course, if I have forgotten anything please let me know. This is going to be a learning experience for us so please cooperate and take care of our stuff!
The rules of engagement are subject to change and tour can end at any moment.
Update: After further discussion with Barra, we have decided to limit the tour to about 12-15 people so that everyone has at least a few days with the demos.
