Edelkrone is Letting Customers Try out Their New Gear Completely Free of Charge

Edelkrone Demo Program
Have you ever wanted to test out a piece of new equipment without paying for it? If so, the recent announcement of Edelkrone's demo program is about to make your day.

Edelkrone SliderPlus
The program works like this: if you've previously purchased a product from Edelkrone, they will send you any single piece of gear to try for three weeks completely free of charge. You can use the demo products in any way you choose (even for paid projects), just as long as the product is returned at the end of the third week.

The major catch here is that you can only demo products that are of equal or lesser monetary value than the Edelkrone product that you currently own. That means that if you own one of their high-end Modula shoulder rigs or a larger SliderPlus with the motion control modules, you can try out pretty much anything you want. However, if you have an older follow focus or just an accessory or two, you'll be limited in what you can demo.

This is such a great program. I hope this catches on with other manufacturers.

You voted '+1'.

Great idea, sadly it is only available in the US. I did 'vote' for my country to be next in line though - here's to hoping!

This is very forward thinking and an awesome promotional tool. SE microphones have done this for years too but you don't have to have purchased something in the past (you just have to give your credit card details in case you break it). Back before I had a decent setup of my own I'd "demo" some of the best SE mics and use them on recordings for free. Quite often they wouldn't collect if for like a month or so too ;) It goes without saying that their products are some of the best in the world and it's that confidence that makes the program work as they know that when you come to buy you'll likely chose their mics.
