He also went on a pretty interesting anti-BLM rant around the time of George Floyd’s murder. It was enough for me to not want anything to do with him out his company. He’s since made some half assed apology, but the cat was out of the bag.
I was not aware of that. Thank you for drawing that to my (our) attention.
I did a search and found a few pages discussing it but the original content has obviously been removed.
I found enough to get the gist of what happened and it was clearly unacceptable.
Even worse, it kept going on for a while even after he was challenged over it.
My perception of Fulltone as a company has changed.
I have a couple of Fulltone pedals so that cannot be undone.
The issue of whether they are good pedals or not is now irrelevant to me.
I won't ever be buying another Fulltone product and I won't be recommending them to others.
People can have whatever vile personal opinions they like but when they make them public and then double down several times in public before finally relenting to pressure and apologizing .... there are consequences.
Fulltone is dead to me now.
I'll have to mull over this for a while before deciding if I'm going to keep the pedals or what.
