Custom Magnetic Labels for HD500x. ANY INTEREST?

Recommended Posts

Hello all Line 6 Users,

 

Right now I have a company that manufactures custom magnetic labels for Midi foot controllers.  I am considering adding labels for the HD500x to my product line.  I am looking to get feedback from users.  What would you look for in a label?  Right now our labels are completely custom made which means you can choose the design for each label as well as the text you want.  To get an idea of what the labels look like here is our website.  www.gigwrx.com

 

Once we decide to add this product to our site we can have them available within weeks.  The labels we product are extremely durable and heavy duty.  almost 1.5mm thick and completely water/beer proof. 

 

Im open to thoughts and suggestions regarding this idea.  Your input is valuable and we will implement as many ideas as possible. 

 

Regards,

 

Anthony

i think it looks great! a little pricey... but thats based on the 24 label price you had listed... probably only need 8 for the pods... 

good luck in your venture.

thats correct!  it will be same price per label but the pod only needs 12 labels so it would be much less.

Do your labels glow in the dark?

 

Are you only considering the HD500x or the HD500 as well?

 

They look nice.

Thanks Rick.  No these are not glow in the dark label.  The cost of the glow material would have made the labels far too expensive.  It woould have been hard to charge $150 for a set of labels for any product.  Plus the glow material only would last roughly 30 min at full charge which we didnt feel was adequate glow time for a gigging musician.  So we opted for no glow labels at this time until we can find better material.  To start we will be making labels for the HD500x.  The HD 500 is a different lyout and would have to be different labels.  Possibly in the future as well.

just my own observation here.... but i think you'd sell more of the 500 ones than you would the 500x.

the 500 has been out longer, sold a greater number of years, and was greeted with a bit more enthusiasm.

We have begun pre-production of custom labels for the HD500X so far.  I will post updates as we make progress.

They will most likely be the exact same price as the current label we make. $2.99 per label. These are very high quality labels with extremely thick magnet. So they are not cheap to manufacture.

 

Take a look at our website www.gigwrx.com

We should have the labels up on our site and ready to take orders within 3-4 weeks.  Stay tuned for some fully customizable high quality magnetic labels.  They will be available for both the HD-500x and FX-100 Amplifi model.  More models will be added soon.

We have also added a secondary text box for the Looper function controls since they will be covered by the label.

Got the site bookmarked, anxiously awaiting!  Thanks for posting about this.

 

I like that they are so visible & durable.

 

I pretty much set up my POD the same way on each bank, that way I can tailor presets to songs.

 

The bottom row is in order of clean to crunch, ie;

Clean, Tweed, Crunch, Spcl (Special) representing switches FS5, FS6, FS7, FS8.  Clean is a Blackface, Tweed is a Bassman, Crunch/Lead is a Bogner Uber.

 

The top row is arranged as follows:

FS1-Spcl, FS2-Mod, FS3-Hmny, FS4-Solo

 

"Special"  on the top is for special effects that fall outside the norm of the others represented.  My Crunch tone has a boost that has a comp/delay so I can use the same preset for leads. 

 

"Special" on the bottom row is for "one off" presets that are unique, such as my "Morph" preset that I use to rock from heel "Clean" to toe "Crunch/Lead" more dynamically using the expression pedal.

 

With all of that having been said, I'd like to get some magnetic labels that fit this.  I presume that is part of the design process according to your website.

I would be interested. A quick question. Is it possible that having all of the magnetic material on a pedal board may have a negative impact on the functionality of the unit. I see these types of labels a lot so I guess there is not. I have always be curious about that.

If you build it they will come.
 
I liked your idea, I cut up magnetic fridge business cards and calendars and made labels with a texta marker. 
It doesn't look as good as yours.
 
On the HD500 we have also a layered narrow section  in front of the upper and lower switches.
A Special batch of labels that fit these could be cheap to buy and make.

Update:

 

We are only a few weeks out at this point before our launch.  We have all the designs done and are still adding more.  But we are just waiting on the delivery of our custom cut machine to actually cut the labels to size.  As soon as that comes in we will be up and running and taking orders.  I will post on this forum as soon as they are available.  But it wont be longer.  Stay tuned!!!

Yeah me too. They'l look great!

But it is the looper function I don't use much that needs some labels!

but like anything after a while you don't need training wheels. 

Those labels do look good though.

im still waiting on our custom cut die. It's taking forever. As soon as it arrived I'll launch the line 6 labels ASAP. I'm hoping by the end of this coming week.

We are getting very close to our Launch.  We're still just waiting on the custom die.  The website is being loaded up with line 6 products.  Take a look...you cant order yet but you can start browsing label options as we begin to load products in.

We will also be adding label in the future for The original HD500, the MSeries and some of the FBV boards.

Can't wait, all ready to order!

 

Actually, I already had my cart filled, and then realized that it was incomplete, so, I guess I just have to wait... :P

UPDATE: 

 

Our custom Die machine is in!!!!  We're just running a few test cuts to tweak the layout and then will be stocking the site.  Hopefully by the end of this weekend they should be available for purchase on our site.  Please spread the word on the forum.  Remember these labels will fit the FX-100 Amplifi pedal as well.
