The corona virus is effecting all our lives.
As a person with chronic autoimmune disease i'm worried for my own health. I'm also concerned for my old and frail parents. Luckely, the situation here in Sweden is still mild compared to many other countries, but I guess that we haven't seen the worst yet. Sweden has a more liberal approach with less restrictions than its neighbouring countries. Whether it's good or bad is up for debate.
Beside the loss of lives, it's very upsetting to see alot of people are loosing their jobs and businesses to face an uncertain future. I make my living as a freelance sound engineer and I normally have 2-3 months ahead fully booked with shows and lectures ect. So far every single job for the foreseeable future has been cancelled (Sweden currently has a 50 people cap restriction). My only income now is from the Parasit Studio webshop and cooperation with Musikding for the DIY kits. It's not nearly enough to make a living, but my wife can still work so we will manage. I'm not that concered with my income as I am about my health.
The only positive thing about all this is that alot of people now have much more time for building pedals. Myself included, so alot of fully assembled Parasit Studio pedals are coming, and perhaps a new DIY project or two aswell. :)
That said, if you are planning to build a Parasit Studio project using one of my vero layouts, please consider buying a PCB insted. I would really appreciate the support. You can also donate (link at the bottom of the About page). Thanks!
The webshop will still be up and running as usual. So far the postal service is shipping normally, at least to US and all EU countries.
