Hi,

are you asking 2Box or do you want to count somehow? Its an interesting question but I guess there is no reason why 2Box should release their business numbers in a public forum.

I bought my kit end of december 2009 and i have a serial number around 630. So you could look for a serial number of a kit that was bought in the last few weeks. But then you still don't know if the series numbers were counted continually. Some companies skip serial numbers in case of facelifts or start series production for example with 400. Everything before is prototyping and/or pilot production.

What i want to say is that looking at serial numbers might not be the whole truth.

Regards, Manfred

One has to wonder whether they would see more if they the kit was black or white...
Title: Re: how many 2BOXERS in the world ???
Post by: GenuineHuman on December 05, 2011, 12:02:03 PM
I don't mind the color. I actually even prefer orange. It makes the kit alive. A mix of orange, black and grey is well balanced and it goes very well with black and white carpet. :)

My serial number is 01824, bought in May 2011 and it came with MK1 kick drum that has a lovely orange lit 2Box logo on the back.  :)

Post by: Slap the drummer on December 05, 2011, 12:03:42 PM
Yep same here - it was the orange tipped the balance and persuaded me to
take a chance on the kit without auditioning it.   :D
Title: Re: how many 2BOXERS in the world ???
Post by: edtc on December 05, 2011, 03:38:11 PM
For me it took close to a year to decide to buy the module ..... i do love Orange , but it could have been yellow or sparkle green or anything ... 

   My decision was made on the specs (the Loop engine and the "open sound " architecture ) , the demo sounds and te DDRUM legacy ... 
    i was looking for something working like DRUMAGOG that i was using at this time .... the loop engine was one of the specs that made me decide at the end.... (I was a bit disappointed before os 1.20 ... :))

About the colour ... it s not only a question of taste , but a lot of musicians prefer to have something more discreet or  on stage ... 

Even Ferrari makes black or white cars :)

Post by: Nick00 on December 05, 2011, 11:43:03 PM
In term of design this color is a lot more consistent and logical.

It is better to achieve the look of something trough its function and nature rather then imitate the look (often badly) from another similar but fundamentally different  product.

2Box made really well in that direction. Instead of hiding and copying an acoustic kit like Roland and Yamaha do, they assumed the electronic nature giving its unique and distinguished beauty. It could in fact help a lot e-kits by giving them their own "personality" , not just acoustics simulation.

Yes it could have been any punchy color, but I'm pretty that was a good choice has it will be accepted by most people and used in a pretty unique way.

Its more then just a color and taste matter :)

Anyways, it rocks  ;D

Hi,
Bernhard from Austria here, received my set yesterday with a serial of
002747, and I am pretty sure it is not 1002747. So it seems they are shelled out one by one to the vendors (which fits with the fact that I needed to order in the UK to receive a kit before xmas.

SN 4189 bought at the beginning of 2014.

This is the highest number so far. From roughly #2800 early 2012 to #4200 is not that high. You can also see how hard it is to make a decent profit. A person working for Zildjian stated the same on another forum. GEN16 is Zildjian but the actual numbers make the businesscase a tough cookie. Let's hope the production and sales got the boost 2Box deserves.

maybe it s the orange color that makes some people hesitate....

I felt the same about the red bit when they were Ddrum. They have a knack for standing out. I saw a video of a chap on youtube who'd painted his orange parts black and I have to admit, they looked great. I saw on a recent Namm video they 2box were displaying Green pads (and probably others too) so I am not sure if it was a reflection of them going into shipping the pads at least in various colours.

5000 units? That's a far cry from the 600 Ddrum3 made! But that was a very high end system in a time where electric drums were limited to Simmonds SDS2000 and Roland Octapads, Kat systems, Roland Octapads etc. Nowadays the market is saturated with electronic drums of all prices.
