You know I hate that s*** it's like they use you and then they discard you f*** them, I never needed a bump box anyway not that I have anything against them but they should give credit where credit's due and pay what they should pay the worst part is they should be loyal to you for the help.
. I'm all for helping people and I'm not doing it for what's in it for me but we know that once people get successful they have a short-term f****** memory or they want to cut Corners to increase profits.

I wonder how they are travelling now that China seems to reproducing the same thing with different names and much cheaper prices.

I bet they are partnering with some company in China & taking the easy way out.

I’ve heard they did this with another member of this forum.
Rinse the member for input, talent, knowledge and then spit them out when they’re done.

Very disappointing considering how much hype and press good or bad Bumpboxx got from this community.

That is such bull shite for all the hype and support you have given them. I'll be the first to start the 'burning the bumpboxx' videos on youtube..... or maybe not.

I had hopes they were true boombox enthusiasts, but now I'm not sure anymore. Maybe it turned into a "get in, get out" mentality.  Those 300-400% profit margins they were enjoying can only last so long.  I wouldn't doubt they're courting offers to sell the business.

The Iron Sheik said it best when the hand is feeding your mouth you don't cut that hand.
But big business doesn't look at it like that.

sorry to say it and I feel for you but I felt they were not nice people

but was positive for new stuff even if i wouldn't have bought one ever

Like why ??? i don't want a box with a basket to hold my phone so not cool 

they will in the end not work out

They have lost the one positive thing they needed

street value some sort of credibility or branding that was you 

without that they are in big trouble

RIP

Well, we did the Vegas meet before without them. This will get us back to our roots if they pull the plug.

You'd be better off without tbh, no point being associated with this kind of mentality.

To tell you the truth i never really liked the bumpboxx .

I didnt even undertand why it was so hyped.

Never got into it. Didnt even like the looks. I just thought it was something

for hipsters and for show offs.

Imo it was destined for those guys that are throwing parties and dance senseless for an event just to take pics and

show on facebook that they are having a good time but thats not real. Its just a show.

Dr Der i believe that you are better without them. Boombox world can live without them.

Vegas worldwide meeting can exist without them. :)

I don't know if you've ever seen the blastmaster XL but they will absolutely f****** smoke anything .
I'm sure if they would actually listen to the advice they were given the bump box would have turned out a lot better.

The original Bumpboxx with its’ cheap $299 pricing and free swag was a good deal which created a lot of buzz particularly on Faceballs. :-)

But after they doubled the price and then brought out a pricey $899 Bumpboxx, the market they initially appealed to (kids and teens) was shut out due to cost.

It sounds like they’re cutting costs to try and save the operation.

We are all set to make Vegas happen without em :-) We never needed em in the 1st place to tell the truth.

We are taking this years Vegas meet back to what its all about, the BOOMBOX. Last year not one old school boombox was played or heard. It was more of a "show". This year we will be taking it back to a more personal level just like the first Vegas meet.

I saw this coming, I'm glad to see you part ways, and come back to what we are really about,THE BOOMBOX. You got to network, meet, and rub elbows with tons of musicians while riding the bumpboxx wave, I'd say it was fun while it lasted, but welcome back to the TRUE scene where we do this for the love of the boombox, and not profit. Good to have you back...

You nailed it SLO - the video from last year with bumpboxx was just a stage to put on a show to showcase their product. No where near the true knob turning blaster fest we had together the year before. Truly real old school blasters, family, walking the streets of LV. It was a time I will never forget.

Word to that brother, getting back to what we all love is essential. Maybe we have lessons to learn from this.

Aiwa's sponsorship was much more appreciative as far as I'm concerned.  I still have that Aiwa 9.

When all this Bumpboxx stuff starting happening here at Boomboxery, I honestly was a little put out for two main reasons:

1. It seemed Bumpboxx were just ripping off the big DIY boxes that home builders all around the world had been building and posting on YouTube for years calling theirs a ‘unique concept’.

2. It also seemed like the collective eye was being taken away from the vintage blasters and onto a glorified DIY box.

But I was impressed how they could offer so much performance for only $299.00 - little did we know this price was only a short lived scheme to suck everyone in.

When two of our most esteemed members joined their ranks, I thought ‘well who am I to doubt this company when guys truly in the know are getting involved?’.

I still tried to remain positive about Bumpboxx despite the whole mono thing and all the QC problems proud Bumboxx owners were experiencing.

But to now find out that Bumpboxx had taken control over the last Vegas meet and had allowed it to degenerate into a pure Bumpboxx promotional event
IS JUST PURE B U L L S H I T !!!!!!

The vintage boxes were just ‘silent stage props’ like one of those modern music videos where everyone is dancing around a switched off vintage Boombox.!!!

Now that both Chris and Dave have been kicked to the curb, I now say ‘Bumboxx be gone!!!’ :lol:
