$2,500: This is pretty damn awesome, so we’ll let our Indiegogo description say it:
You are THE ULTIMATE XYLOVAN PATRON – you’re pushing us a long way towards our goal, and we’re massively grateful and fortunate to have you support us. So we’re building you a FLOOR-STANDING, FULL-OCTAVE 13-KEY CHROMATIC XYLOPHONE. Each key is hand-cut, carefully tuned to A-440 (Western) scale and mounted in a handsomely-finished, laminated-wood sound-box / case with handles for carrying. The instrument is set atop detachable hairpin-steel legs, which make it elegant for a spot in your music room or parlor, yet completely portable for special events, trips abroad or visits to the home of your exotically musical friends and collaborators. The instrument is fitted with a pressure-zone microphone, allowing it to be plugged in and AMPLIFIED, which will surely lead to all sorts of amazing adventures in music.
Extra bonus! You get two board-any-time PLAYA RIDE TICKETS for XyloVan at Burning Man 2014. If you see us there, hail XyloVan and hop on board ANY TIME – we’ll stop for you even if we’re overloaded – and we’ll drive you anywhere you like on-playa for a couple hours – hang out, play, tell us of your adventures and bang on the van!
Commuter special! You’ll be able to schedule XyloVan for any 4-hour window for yourself and your crew – up to 14 people – any time between Monday and Friday, and we’ll drive you anywhere you’d like to go on-playa – set up any place you’d like, and turn up the amp as loud (or as softly) as you like.
Excellent Patron Bonus: A 1-DAY XYLOVAN COMMAND APPEARANCE Because you believe in us, we’ll bring XyloVan to you – anywhere within 50 miles of Los Angeles. We’ll set up the instruments, sound and lights for a morning, an afternoon or an evening, and you and your guest/students/family/co-conspirators can make any kind of music storm you like. You’ll also have full access to our mixing panel, in case you want to bring other instruments into the mix, or pipe XyloVan’s four channels out to your own mixer for recording purposes.
Beloved Patron Bonus: A 2-DAY XYLOVAN COMMAND APPEARANCE – Because you’ve given so much, we want to give back to you. We will drive XyloVan to you – anywhere within 400 miles of Los Angeles – for a two-day gig. Do with us what you will. We’re there for you, body, soul and amplified, illuminated, motorized instruments.
True Burner Enjoyment: If you’re already on-playa for Burning Man 2014, you’ll get two seats atop XyloVan’s observation deck for the night the Man burns! No sitting in the dust shouting “Down in front!” and trying to keep your butt from falling asleep – you’ll see everything from our deck 8 feet off the ground in the ring of mutant vehicles for the burn!
