  2. Politics aside(isn’t that banned here?) he was a nasty guy to begin with.

    Looks like they made the right choice.
  3. He definitely could have driven his point without being offensive and could have remained neutral. Poor business choice from him.

    Yes, I figure it might derail into politics but it's a really interesting and timely story. There are already some artsy folks popping sites to redo the enclosure art on FT pedals.
  5. Yeah, that was a great point you verbalized. That's it, really.

    Sorry to be lazy, but do you have links? I heard about this but haven't seen anything yet - I'm curious to see what people are doing.

    Also, I've not held my tongue about Mike Fuller, and I won't now. That guy has been a d*ck-head for as long as email and the internet has been around to retell the tales of his customer 'service' debacles. Good riddance to someone who has been an a-hole to customers and fellow pedal builders. (see: Nunez Amplification, et al)

    That cat sounds like a grade A assclown.

    I'm not familiar with his past antics, but the tone of the passages in that article clearly show that he gets his rocks off acting like a real bastard. Screw him and screw his pedal business.

    Seems like the same !&#^#^#$$ dude that been there for years. He's been like that forever. This was the last draw.

    Happy to see him sink

    Finally karma comes full circle and bites him in the butt.

    Bye bye. I sure won't miss you.

    He claims he terminated with them on March 23rd. But if that were true, why would GC issue that statement? Seems like of like he's playing "you can't fire me, I quit".

    Over the past few years, I have really minimized my activity on social media. I mainly use it now only for band stuff and using Messenger and the like for private communications with friends. As a regular Joe on the street, I don't really see the upside to airing my political/social views publicly.

    Wish I could comment but TB CoC forbids me from divulging what my thoughts really are.

    Suffice it to say, any public comment that deviates even remotely from the the current popular narrative is an unwise move.

    Wow...finally made one of these threads before the lock..!..As far as Cruz goes,
    I’m all for freedom of speech...I even really love dark humor at its best, but somethings are just incredibly insensitive and stupid to say at such a volatile time in our society...why risk your reputation over a bad joke.?

    Funny that a chain of giant stores full of valuable inventory, and musicians - it's tough to find a touring band without a "we had all our gear stolen" story, wouldn't also be against "looting with impunity" and the violence and arson that goes along with it.

    Certainly he could've worded it better, however he made no mention of the protests and it's understandable why a small business owner would have a passionate stance against small businesses being looted and destroyed, while the protections they pay taxes for are totally absent.

    These are purely neutral common-sense observations, nothing political real, implied, or imagined, and for what it's worth I've always deliberately avoided his brand.

    As an ex-employee (salesperson) of GC I will gladly admit to talking many a person out of purchasing anything with the Fulltone name on it.
    There are so many better circuits out there made by better people. Glad to see this guy get his just desserts and GOOD ON GC for doing the right thing. Wish this would’ve happened sooner.
