    Kirk Hammet starts his own pedal business

    Yet somehow a wah pedal ISN'T on the table yet.

    I dunno, sounds like it may be interesting. Wonder if he'll do a version of the Meatball.

    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I watched that video a few weeks back and didn't realize it was Kirk Hammet's company. I don't seem to remember Pete dropping his name, either, and its impressive he isn't trying to sell the pedals based on his Metallica fame alone.

    Good for Kirk Hammet. Always like to see someone start a business.

    But having Rolling Stone declare that you're redefining the sound of guitar is a bit like.... well...

    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    No wah boots, no care.

    But seriously, good for him. I hope they do well for him, and are decent pedals.
