Sorry it took a while to appear! I contacted Leonard straight after you mentioned it and he sent it straight over... But it then got stuck in UK customs for a while because although their website happily took import duty payment from me, it didn't tell the Post Office when it was released for shipping. :-( It took four emails, three phone calls, and over a month to finally sort it out!

However, it was worth it as it's a really nice product. Not cheap, but then there's not a huge market either, and it's entirely custom-made using expensive machining processes.

It's the kind of niche product JW should be selling in the UK alongside his Turtles and Hakens :thumbup: :D

Nice product!

Compared to the cost of simple microphone accessories (shock mounts) from some of the mic manufacturers shown, I don't find it expensive at all.

I don't do many gigs where this would help me, but I still may buy one. ;)

The import duty and VAT add significantly to the cost in the UK/EU, but I think for anyone recording grand pianos frequently it is an easily justifiable expense.

It would be a good fit with your product lines, John. Drop me an email to remind me, and I'll gladly make the introductions on Monday.
