Watching the Dragons Den episode from the United States

The blindfold guitar test

How to get around the Geo-restricted streaming

Our 2010 appearance on the CBC program Dragons Den is famous in Canada. It was one of the most popular episodes of the year.

We taped it in May of the previous year. When it aired on January 13, we were swamped with orders. Within 18 hours, we were sold out of Tofino. It would be another two years before our limited production could meet demand.

But, copyright restrictions prevented streaming Dragons Den outside Canada, so we remained relatively unknown south of the border. Let's change that. There are two options for American visitors who want to view two old guys changing the guitar business forever.

  1. If you have a VPN (a virtual private network) open it and select a server in Canada. Then simply enter the following web address into your browser:
    https://www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/m_pitches/mackenzie-marr-guitars
  2. If you don't use a VPN, or, don't have any idea what a VPN is there's another solution.
     Copy the URL,"https://www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/m_pitches/mackenzie-marr-guitars" (don't copy the quotes)
    Go to the following web site
    https://www.4everproxy.com
    Past the URL you copied in step one into the web site box.
    Select "Canada (Quebec)" from the drop down server list

Number two is a bit of a pain, but it works.

PLEASE NOTE. Sites that offer Virtual private servers such as 4everproxy generate their revenue from ads. Those ads are not always family-friendly.

You can order Tofino in our online store. Visit the Tofino page to learn more.

 

An Important Note Regarding Porch Pirates

When we ship a guitar we always send it with instructions to the courier that a signature MUST be obtained at the time of delivery. If no one is home to sign for the carton, it will not be left. We do this to ensure that your guitar does not fall into the hands of porch pirates (or other nefarious characters such as bass players or drummers).
