Hi folks. How's your week been? Apologies for this blog being a little later than usual this week - same old excuses; busy, busy! I've eventually managed to find 10 minutes to sit down and tell you all about what's new with us so here we are again. Where do I start?
There's Good News and There's Bad News
After the mad rush we experienced from being featured on BBC News (read the blog HERE), we sold out entirely within 24 hours or so! We've even started selling some of our demo units to keep up with demand - there are a couple of those left so please inquire if you're interested. Here comes the bad news; due to the high demand, we've put a 4 week waiting list on all new BoomBocs orders until we can catch up with ourselves again. Even though we've always fully and truly believed in our creations, it seems we were not fully prepared for how quickly the BoomBocs has sold so all we can do is sincerely apologise for the resulting wait on orders. However, feel assured it'll be totally worth it when you're dancing around to the sweet, sweet sounds of your BoomBocs and showing it off to all your friends. You won't be disappointed.
The New Range
We mentioned last week that we're working on v2.0 for release this summer. Well, we're still working on that - no more news there. However, we are pretty excited to tell you that alongside a v2.0 release, we'll be launching our BoomBocs Deluxe range for those of you that are really into boutique design and have a love for all things retro. 'What's this Deluxe thing all about' I hear you ask....let me explain;
You know those old school guitar amplifiers built by the likes of Fender, Orange, Marshall, Vox etc?! Well, we're going to be offering a 'taste' of the old school in our very new school BoomBocs sound systems. What we intend to do is use Tolex vinyl to wrap our BoomBocs' with, add on the various extra hardware bits such as corner pieces etc and then you've got an awesome-looking retro BoomBocs. What do you reckon? Obviously, there's a bit more to it than just dressing up - we have a lot of work to do but we're incredibly excited about this new line of products! Let us know your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section below.
You may or may not have noticed, but we're trying to upload new photos each week in new locations and with new people featuring in them. Last week we had fun with American artist Shana Johnson in Central London, and now this week we took a trip to beautiful West Wales for some antics at the seaside. The idea is that we can 'demonstrate' the wide variety of situations you can apply your BoomBocs to, whether it be chilling in the park for a picnic, or having a rave in a warehouse! Whatever the location, whatever the event, you probably, almost definitely need a BoomBocs for it.
This week's 'destination demonstration' took us all the way to the beautiful coastline of Pembrokeshire in South West Wales. Barafundle Bay is a remote beach, only accessible by walking through woodland and across fields so it was the perfect location for our newest beach photoshoot. It's not necessarily a common destination for tourists, but with our roots originating from the same area, we knew exactly where we needed to take young Charles the BoomBocs. This very same beach has been used in various television adverts over the years and more recently for the location of the hit movie 'Third Star', which features Benedict Cumberbatch as the lead character, James.
As you can see from this map, it's tucked away nicely;
We're always on the lookout for more places to explore and more people to meet so if you want to feature in some of our photos or have an idea for a greta location, please let us know. You can either e-mail us by sending to; firstname.lastname@example.org or you can just leave a comment below.
That's it for this week, anyway. Thanks for taking the time to read the blog and keeping up the support for BoomBocs. It means a lot to us.
Have a great week, everyone.
Much love, Team BoomBocs xx
