Recent competition with other budget led kits also offering WHITE digits has helped me to decide several things..
First off, I'll keep pricing for the conversion kits at the current "SALE" pricing.. no bumping up to what I had expected introductory pricing to be. I'd like to keep these conversion kits as an attractive option and price-point is definitely part of that. So conversion kits will remain as low as $82.95 per 6-digit AMBER set (that's $16.59 per single display kit within a set) or at most $99.95 for a 7-digit WHITE set ($19.99 per single display kit within a set). It's crazy imagining LED display options at those per-display price-points from where things were a year or two ago with Classic Bally/Stern displays. And even now with quite a few other kits on the market, it's still nearly half the price of a single full display kit. I want the conversion kit options to stick around for a while, so keeping prices low would seem a good way to make that happen.
Second, for bulk needs of 4x or more FULL kits for these conversion displays -- email or PM me and we can discuss some discounts. I'm sure there's a few people that have amassed HUGE collections of old displays. I'll work with those people a bit. As a for-instance.. if we hit 10x FULL kits (ie. enough to do 50 displays), I'll throw in one full set for free.
And lastly, I've just learned every time someone affects what I'm doing it just means I need to figure out how to step up my game. No drama, no hard feelings. Just keep at it -- stream-lining to remain competitive, innovating to offer something different, create aesthetically pleasing designs & solid products. In a way I have those people to thank for helping to create better products or causing me to find ways to be more efficient & make things work. I guess that's why they say competition is good for everyone, though it doesn't always feel like it
Expect a full Classic Bally/Stern display kit from PINITECH sometime 1st Qtr 2017. You won't see any pictures or discussion of the design.. in fact, you won't hear a blip from me on it from this point forward -- until it's available for sale. Just know what to expect from what you've seen here & in other designs I've done. The displays will look nice, function well, be priced competitively & may even offer something a bit different. I expect to help others have access to some really nice looking budget displays for their machines, so we can continue to breathe new life into Classic Bally/Stern games!
Future ideas will be carried out in a similar fashion. Radio silence until something is ready to hit the street. If you're wondering if I have any new ideas or projects -- the answer is ALWAYS likely yes. Someone that is creative and thinks a bit outside the box, always has plenty of things in the works! Stay tuned for some more neat things from PINITECH in 2017!
