Specdrums, eLab Class of 2016 Startup, Set to Launch Kickstarter August 16th
Specdrums are app-connected rings that transform color into sound, played wirelessly through an app. They were created by Matthew Skeels (BA '16) and Steven Dourmashkin (BA '15) because they found that drum sets are bulky, expensive, and difficult to transport. Their product appeals to five main customer segments: the percussion enthusiast whose life revolves around teaching and performing, the musician on a budget, the musically-supportive parent who hesitates to buy their child a loud and expensive drum set, the experimental musician, and the casual user who wants to jam with friends on the go.
Below is a message from the Specdrums team, asking for support in launching their product:
Our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign will be launching on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. If successfully funded, this campaign will allow us to outsource our manufacturing, which will lower the price of our rings and make them available for everyone.
We need your help to ensure that our campaign will be successful. Here are some ways you can help: Check out and provide feedback on our current Kickstarter draft. Share our draft and spread the word with others who'd be interested. Catch our limited super-early bird special of $29 per ring by pledging to our campaign on the first day (Aug. 16) to help us gain the momentum we'll need to reach our funding goal. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions about our upcoming launch.
