    That's about how seriously I ever took the Kirkentool, AKA the "enfruitened one".

    Didn't sound like much of anything to get your panties in a bunch to me. But I guess everyone's a victim these days looking to get offended so who knows. Kirk's probably one of nicest player in the business, especially considering his level of fame.

    well SO HE SHOULD BE DISMISSIVE of the whole industry.
    the guy has the band which made it all possible.

    IT worked! I found out about the pedal range just from that 1 comment which bought MASSIVE FREE publicity out there.

    I had NO IDEA he was making pedals and NOW i know instantly.

    the guy is a MASTER at his selling product game.

    "just watch me guys! BANG! instant free worldwide promo".

    Kirk is the LEGEND! no doubt about it!

    I'll be buying FOR SURE!

    :)

    thanks for the headsup!

    there's all these perfectionists hanging around the whole music money making scheme and they're getting WAY TOO precious these days selling stuff for MASSIVE MONEY and there's the ultimate brat pack boys who made it all possible and those perfectionists want to TAKE THEM DOWN at the first chance they can.

    why didn't they wait 5 years to react to the comment? there's no need to say anything in the first 4 years from when the comment has been made.

    Metallica's been doing it their way for all their lives. I find it SO commical that people are forgetting who they are and what they've been doing all these years.

    they've NEVER conformed to any authority out there. so now they're suppose to conform to the pedal makers loose association of pedal craft 101.

    this is SO funny stuff! hahaha! GO KIRK! you win!

    blokes can't handle looking old these days.

    No dis to other players who create pedals. I’m just stoked about KHDK and proud to be deeply involved in the creative process.
    I'm guilty of not reading the fine print most of the time when I'm checking out other pedals and yes, I'm more than glad that there are other guitar players out there creating new pedals and new sounds !!!

    Wow. Blown WAY outta proportion.

    Whatevs.

    NOT a Kirk fan by any means, but his pedals sound great from what I've heard so far.
    Hope they sell twice as many now.

    Kirk made an error but who doesn't? I still like him. I feel he is somewhat going into a tough market to begin with. He should do alright. The pedal industry has to get over their butt hurt on this I feel.

    Kirk is a good dude... Probably the less ego-tistical member of the band next to Trujillo and post-rehab Hetfield, but yeah, should have chose his words a bit better... At least his apology seemed sincere.
