I apologize for the delay between the last newsletter and this one.
The web site and newsletter live in my laptop and my laptop was relocated
to an unknown location for an undetermined amount of time, most likely
forever. This occurred when I was not looking, by a person who has
chosen to remain anonymous. So I am starting fresh and it is a bit
time consuming. By popular request we are bringing back the "Where
are the Rats" section so you can see where what the Rats are doing.
Things are going really well and the sales section of the web site
is starting to get some good responses. So here is the latest:
We launched microwedge.com.
Right now it is just a start page but soon we will post processor
settings, news, dealers and updates about the MicroWedges.
The MicroWedges are getting an awesome response and a lot of people
are asking to try them out. Neither Rat Sound nor Radian are very
large companies, so handing out lots of demo’s is rough. However,
we just worked out a deal with Radian where:
Buy two MicroWedges, use them for 45 days from when you receive them
and if for any reason you decide that you don't want them, you can
send them back to us for a full refund.
This setup should work well for everyone, as we are sure that few
to none will come back and it gives the ability for people to try
them out. Give us a call for full details if you are interested. (888)
Here is an interesting thing for those of you with Rat Sniffer/Senders.
If you are in a pinch, you can use the Sender unit as a phantom power
source! Use a dual male to female XLR "Y" cable. Plug the mic cord
into the female, one male goes to the console and one male goes to
the "Sender." The Sender will power a 12-volt compatible phantom mic
for many hours.
We have received some calls about locating replacement batteries for
the Rat Sender. If you remember to unplug it or turn it off the battery
will last for months or years, but sooner or later they will drain.
The battery is a 12-volt “alarm remote” battery found in key chain
car alarm remotes. You can find them for about $2.00 at most drug
stores or Radio Shack.
We put up a new home page that is simpler and cleaner. The site no
longer uses “frames,” at least for now. I would love comments and
suggestions. There is a link to the old style "Rat Home Page" on the
Rat plate on the left meter, if you prefer the frame based system.
The "Dealership" page has been updated and more Insta-Quote links
are up. The Insta-Quote system is an email auto-responder that allows
you to quickly get price quotes on products from manufacturers that
we are dealers for. The prices are considerably below the prices we
are allowed to “publish.” Check it out at http://ratsound.com/dealer/dealer.htm
or just try sending an email to audixratsound.com
and you will get the Audix price sheet.
We are putting up new dealerships weekly. If there is a quote you
need and it is not listed, feel free to email us at ratratsound.com
or call and we will get you prices right away.
