7 page post and not one shipped. I wish I could sell albums this easy before people even heard the artist!

Well, I guess Ashley Simpson did that with her debut. No single, nothing released at all, and debuted at #1 in Billboard. Made me laugh.

Me, too. But I will say this: Peter Reardon's a really great guy. I know he feels terrible about the delays. Every time I talk to him, he sounds down and stressed. My monitor console that he made me is built like a tank and sounds beyond words. I know that his new compressor will be worth the wait. And I'm glad that Reardon cares so much about the quality of his new product that he doesn't just rush it out so that he can stuff he bank account.

Just hope it comes out soon

Very true....I am still waiting for my GAMA 8 as well and though it's been a while, Peter has been very forthright and honest about the delays.

I would rather wait longer for a superlative product than have him rush it out the door, only to have it not meet an exacting standard. His obsession with his products shows his dedication....I know the wait will be worth it.

Just got off the phone with Mike Nehra who was telling about the Shadow Hills compressor, which he finally heard. He was blown away. He said it does that gluey LA3A thing and is an SSL on steroid. He said there's nothing weird or funky about it, that it works like adream. Just as I'm hanging up with Nehra, Reardon calls. He's moved into his new place and has turned a corner. He's got things working and told me that he's finally happy with the compressor and that it's everything he's wanted it to be. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Tet: Thanks for the Update. I will be speaking with Peter Reardon tomorrow and see how we are looking.

Great talking with you the other day!

Not quite seven, but it may be before we have it in hand! I ordered mine October 6th. Who's ahead of me? Mojava? Anyone else?

Amazing. I had actually placed an order for one back in early September. I cancelled the order in January and was sure that as soon as I did that they'd start shipping. I was wrong. I just couldn't justify racking up interest on the deposit any longer, and I'm glad I made the decision to not wait around. I'm still excited to hear how they sound, and hopefully some time in the hazy future I'll actually end up with one at my place after all...

Yeah, I would have done the same if it had been sitting on a credit card the whole time. I need my gear to be paying for itself right away! At this point, I'm debt free. Trying to buy a house

But gear lust always ensues......

a little loan to SH

<<He's got things working and told me that he's finally happy with the compressor and that it's everything he's wanted it to be >> posted earlier.

So let me understand this. You guys paid in full for a product that wasn't even finally designed yet ? And a 10% deposit was unacceptable, it had to be paid in full.
You know the credit card rules are you have to file disputes within 6 months of charge.
So at this point in time if you haven't filed a dispute and shadow hills goes under....
which I'm sure is unlikely.

In that case, I would expect Vintage King to cover it. They are the dealer.

Pretty harsh "what if", though. Go smoke some cush or something...

Actually, I believe they've stopped taking payment in full for Shadow Hills gear at the outset....

I/O configuration?

Any ideas on what the rear in/out configuration will be on the back of the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor?
