patenting the rEvolution drums

$1,415 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 30 months
My name is Josh Grbinick, I build experimental musical instruments as 101 Percussion , and I'm the inventor of the rEvolution drums.
     Last year I took the risk and filed for patent pending status for my dual body drum design. This gave me one year to promote my design to the public with intellectual property protections granted by the patent pending. However, after that year is done you must file for full patent status or sacrifice intellectual property rights altogether--meaning anyone can make your invention.
    With two failed attempts at crowdfunding campaigns, I was not able to complete the full patent due to lack of funds.  However, another option I can take is by filing for international patent status. This is about a quarter of the cost, and essentially extends my patent pending protections by 18 months .

As you might have noticed, I updated my goal amount to $3,000. After discussing things with my patent attorney, there are certain changes to be made while under these last few days of the filing deadline, hence the goal increase.

Thanks again to backers so far! And if you know anybody who might be interested in helping, please share!

Thanks to backers so far, we've already surpassed 50% of funding needed! There's still a long way to go and only a few days till the funding deadline.
I truly appreciate all of the support I've gotten so far on this. And not just financially. A lot of people have helped promote and given their advice on skill sets needed to accomplish such a monumental task.
As I'm sure you've noticed by now, there is now a video presentation for the project and more is to come on that in the next few days along with audio/video samples courtesy of Horse Rock Entertainment.
