An exclusive manufacturing process
After several months of development, the first Mandium® branded electric guitar was born in JLB Création, an art foundry situated near Nice, in the “Eco-Valley”, in january 2016.
It’s manufacturing method is exclusive and offers, thanks to its molded and special alloy casted hollow-bodies, a near-unlimited sustain, as well as an original sound, soft, tonic and wealthy, without disruption that can be compared to the bells’ sound.
Also, the metal casting work allows almost unlimited freedom, creating shapes, designs and customizations and working on polishes, colored patinas and textures. Rounded outlines, quite ergonomic, give players a very comfortable use.
Crowdfunding campaign launch on Kickstarter
The dedicated team formed for the “Mandium® project”, of which a profesionnal stringed-instrument maker, “Meilleur Apprenti de France”, will introduce its creations via the american crowdfunding company : Kickstarter. A unique opportunity to promote this range made in France all around the world.
Starting from the 15th of march 2016 during 40 days, the campaign objective is to raise 90 000€ of funds, necessary to guarantee a larger-scale production and to bring the products to the market.
Anybody can pledge the project, from 5€ contribution or by pre-ordering the Genuine Mandium®, that will be proposed to the “Super Early bird” price of 1900€.
