Sounds interesting in terms of a concept or an idea. I'm just not too thrilled about the whole "footswitch" thing. Perhaps, limiting the choices but, doing it with some sort of substantial "Motion" detection might be [food for thought] for your R&D Team.
Frank, I am the R&D team.
I suggested "gestures" twice in this thread.
By that I mean, if you want to switch between 2 preset voices, specific motions of the guitar could do the switching.
That would mean making the choices in advance in the settings and then, for instance, raise the neck to vertical for 2 seconds would switch in one direction and then raising it again would switch back.
or some sort of distinct (and detectable) position.
Sorry, don't mean to waste your time, but you might notice that I did a 180-degree turn on this issue. And, in truth, I am quite ambivalent.I guess the bottom line is, [Everything Considered] I would probably be more apt to purchase a footswitch. But, but, but, the thing is that it would have to be made well
and offered at a reasonable price considering how much the "ToneWood" amp itself cost. I think the whole 'Genesis' of the idea - to developing a "prototype" - to making it
available to the consumer, was brilliant. My ONLY problem with the whole thing has always been the cost. I feel it can be made more available to the "Budget Conscious"
musician if you'd have brought down the cost some. At this point, my recommendation would be to offer it at a discounted price to all your previous customers. And, not
to change the price, but to include the footswitch with all future orders. NOW, all that would obviously depend as I already mentioned, your R&D Team. If they can use less expensive
yet, enduring parts so as to create a footswitch you can hit with a "Hammer" and, has good wiring, [or bluetooth], so that it's built to last. THEN, it is in my opinion that, that coupled with
some clever advertisements, will hit it out of the ballpark... After that - it's going to be a lot of POSITIVE "word of mouth."
I appreciate that you are not rolling in cash but everything costs something.
If you want a custom pedal, I can build you one, for a price.
We have has many design reviews about remote controlling the TWA.
Rest assured that we consider remote control a desireable addition but one that is not demanded by enough user to make that commitment now.
