Eventide has announced a trade-up program designed to reward long-time customers with a limited-time opportunity to trade in Eventide processors from the 20th century for credit against the purchase of a new Eventide Eclipse V4, H7600, or H8000FW Ultra-Harmonizer through a participating Eventide authorized dealer or Eventide customer service. Effective immediately, this offer expires June 30, 2010.
"We want to reward our loyal customers with an opportunity to trade-up their older Eventide rack units for our state-of-the-art rack processors. The classic Eventide processors of the past have fueled the creative fires of thousands of artists and audio pros but, lacking modern features like digital I/O, and lower noise floor, some of these units are now gathering dust," stated Ray Maxwell, Eventide vice president of sales and marketing. "As a tribute, we’re asking owners to submit either current or vintage photos of these units for display on eventide.com. Eventide will waive the balance of the trade-up price for the winning photo." The winner will be announced July 23 on Eventide.com.
Here is how the program works:
1. Customer must fill out the Cash for Clunkers submission online form completely, including the serial number and model number of the unit being traded in and the product the customer wishes to purchase. The form is here: http://bit.ly/9rF9tu
