Zivix concluded our successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign yesterday, having raised over $500,000 for the new Jamstik Smart Guitars.
After reaching our initial $75K goal and surpassing $200K prior to the midpoint of the campaign, we announced that Zivix will be donating 2% of total funds raised during the campaign to The NAMM Foundation's Bill Collings Memorial Fund, a fund which supports student and guitar teacher education. We're thrilled to have raised over $10,000 for the NAMM Foundation to support a cause that's close to our hearts!
Surpassing $500K means we were able to reach our stretch goal to add bonus features to both of the new versions! We couldn't be more excited to make these upgrades for our backers, and we're happy to announce that these upgrades will be permanent features on all new models! Both new versions will have upgraded LED's and fret markers, and the Jamstik 12 will have metal saddles.
The Jamstik 7 will begin shipping to backers in late August, and the Jamstik 12 will begin shipping in January 2019. With the close of the campaign, we're extending pre-orders from Indiegogo crowdfunding to Indiegogo InDemand, with the Jamstik 7 available for $199, and the Jamstik 12 available for $379.
We'd like to thank everyone who has supported us in our journey to make the MIDI guitars of the future! The support we've gotten as a result of the campaign has been encouraging, and we cannot wait to deliver the best Jamstiks yet!
