#1: The mold is finished and looks good. It's being tested for production/quality. Pending good results, we'll pull the trigger on the run. Mics may be here in ~10 days if that's the case.
#2: We have good news on a contingency plan that's looking like it can step up if need be (but we're pretty sure we won't need it).
#3: QC-passed units from batch 2 chipped away at orders up to those who ordered on the 29th of August. You should get an email if yours was shipped.
The new (microphone-friendly) mold will be done in 3-4 days.
The production run should take 6 days after the mold is complete and tested.
So, if all goes well and there are no hiccups or adjustments that need to be made, we should be able to have the mics here within these 3 weeks.
We'll be ordering enough mics to cover all orders (and some more for good measure).
We are confident about the new mold and its ability to not destroy the mic's baseline quality. We'll have an update from the manufacturer when the mold is complete and will know a little more at that time about how things are going to look. I'll update when we get more info.
Thanks for hanging in there with us-
