The best way for you to experience the DMD3 + DMDMD Bundle is to use the collection in it's entirety. That way you can acquire a true feel of how these sounds integrate with your vision. I also believe in treating others the way I would like to be treated, extending trust and honor as the standard. That is why I am willing to offer a 30 day no-questions-asked return policy. If at any time within that period you feel it's not 100% working out, please, email me and request a refund. No harm, no foul, easy. (tonebldr at gmail)
In return I also desire to be treated with trust and honor, so I expect you to delete the content and always keep it private. If not for me, my family, or the other users, do it entirely for selfish reasons and keep it for yourself. Who wants to wear the same thing as everyone else everyday? Not me and surely not you. I'm still not down with the Khaki uniform.
