RMC still in business?

Does anybody know if RMC's still in business? Tried to reach them, phone and email, but no success.I've
heard from other people they are hard to deal with, but that was my first try. But it didn't work out... 

I had to turn down my customer in part due to the above. The lady who wanted my services didn't like to see me
disassembling the guitar--and liked even less to learn the electronics had been messed with big time--so
she decided to take it to Godin.

I wonder why people are switching to Graphtech.

Re: RMC still in business?

Hi:

I've recently received a quote and a note from Richard, they are still 
in biz.  Richard is not on the list anymore because his e-mail address 
(info <at> ) is not allowed by Yahoo Lists.  I miss his valuable posts and 
insights.

Why doesn't he just change to an acceptable email address???

Any e-mail is good, so long you reply to messages sent to you. Which he didn't do.

RMC's website is more than 10 years old. Many links broken. Hadn't been updated in a looong time. And if he
can't support his own products, I have to refer people to Graphtech. BTW, their stuff is a lot easier to
install and replace.

Re: RMC still in business?

Mike,

> I've heard from other people they are hard to deal with...

I beg to differ with you here. It is hard to find someone as helpful and knowledgeable as Richard McClish. He
provided invaluable insights to us all here.

As far as customer service goes, he was always extremely helpful to me. On my first guitar the preamp was
damaged. He offered me full set of saddles and preamp for a complete update and guided me through the
process of replacing it, answering several messages in the process.

More recently, the installation of a Poly-Drive 4 in my guitar turned out to be a disaster, damaging the
system very badly. He responded to every one of my e-mails, describing in great detail what should I test
and how. (Only now, more than a year later, I was able to run those tests!)

So, I cannot agree with what "other people" say, since I have no idea what their experience was. RMC doesn't
respond e-mails in minutes, it may take a few days. Be he always did.

> I wonder why people are switching to Graphtech.

Could be one or more of the below:

a) it's slightly cheaper;
b) it's modular -- you can have only the preamp and no midi;
c) tune-o-matic bridges come ready to install;
d) no soldering required for pots, switches, and saddles;
e) kits are sold on the internet and through other eBay vendors;
f) it's overall easier to install.

Re: RMC still in business?

In the end, he finally responded to my message. It was too late, though.

It'd be easier if he had that documentation in the website, tho.

This is very true, let's move away from black magic treatment of the topic.

1) consider variability of a delay. It is much better to have a stable 30 ms delay that one can easily adapt to
than unpredictable 3 to 15 ms delay.

2) Concerning the delay of normal PUs to report the same string activation, do you have a numerical example
to explain why neck PU is delayed? I never observed this. 

My system has 30 ms delay and I am comfortable with it though it is not very stable with complex piano sound.
Some very low end modules/patches make it more playable.

Re: Pitchrider pedal on Craigs

The Krammer Pitchrider 7000 was my 1st controller. They're not a bad little unit. My original pickup broke
so used the hex pickup from a GK2 and re-wired it to the Krammer interface and it works quite well. 

I was unaware there was a foot controller for it.
