Kitting Progress

Hi Backers!

We are almost through the month and have made good progress on sending kits out. Many of you have received tracking numbers, or even already received your books, kits.

A few things to know — books and kits are being shipped from separate queues and in separate packaging, so many will receive your copy of the book a few days before you receive kits. However, because of the way Crowd Supply’s order tracking system is set up, you will receive a tracking number email only when the final item in your order (usually the bigger package containing the kits) is sent out. This is normal! Most books have been sent out at this point, also.

While most questions and comments we’ve been hearing so far are great, there are a few cases where some small and similar-looking parts have been accidentally swapped (capacitors, or kit postcards.) Please get in touch with with your order ID number if you think you might have any missing or swapped parts in your kits, we will be following up shortly to replace them.

Finally - looks like at least one backer has already put his Stepped Tone Generator to good use. Check out this original ‘Circuit Classics Song’!
