Kirk Hammett Insults Pedal Community on Twitter | Reverb
I think he meant to say, "a pedal company actually being driven by a "famous" guitar player."
Another TS clone? How did we ever get along without him?
Another example of opinion/a$$hole rule. Everybody has one and they all stink from time to time.
What a tool.
This is exactly what he tweeted & see nothing wrong with it:
I think what he's getting at is that a lot of pedal manufacturers know nothing about actually playing an instrument.
I think he's right, and I would go further to say they're in it for the easy money.
Selling pedals to players is like picking low hanging fruit IMHO & the profits are really great compared to the cost of raw material & actual work required to make a pedal.
Why does everyone NEED to be offended ALL the time in the 21st Century?
Because he's a tool and he's wrong. Lots of musicians run pedal companies.
Says the guy who makes pedals?
Wut? How many manufactures out there that you can name, don't know anything about playing instruments? Most of the companies I'm familiar with were created because they wanted to make something for their own rig and it just kind of worked out that way.
The difference between Kirk and let's say all the other builders out there that play, is that Kirk is a rock star. That's the ONLY difference. It doesn't mean he's smart or even talented. He's kind of an idiot actually.
Also, it's not about being offended. It's about him being a dipstick and actually believing his own bs.
OH and here's a much better idea than Kirk's. It already exists too.
Kirk's team probably told him players don't do their research & will believe everything Kirk says.
If they're Kirk fanboys, they buy every word of it.
Well, as long as he doesn't wear a hat indoors, right?
Also, the good folk at Catalinbread and MANY other pedal companies are begging to differ.
Don't worry, those guys that are being rude with their hats on are really good at defending their lack of manners.
This shows you know little to nothing about pedal building.
Woo boy. Metallica are already the most vilified metal band out there, you know, because reasons. Add Kirk making a pedal, and we're bound to see some hater-aid of epic proportions. Let the butthurt begin!
Well, as long as nobody's getting offended.
I don't, nor will I ever, claim to be an authority on pedal manufacturing. I could probably do it. I know how to solder & know a decent about about electricity & electronics.
Kirk's team probably knows more about it than I do, but they still chose to make this statement, and I'm still fine with it.
I stand by my own statement that the profits are great for pedal manufacturers.
