A friend of mine has been working on patenting a couple different music accessories for the last year or so. One of his concepts falls into the effects category. So here's the question: Does anyone know of/have connections to/own a company (large or small) that would consider carrying a new effects product? I realize this is a very vague question, but I'm just hoping to expand our current options beyond my limited knowledge of the effects industry. Any information will be much appreciated.
