              Here are my thoughts on Ken and his alleged scam.



              I've been convinced for awhile now that he and Freekish Blues are just a big troll operation. I think he was attempting to make some sort of statement about the boutique pedal industry and those who support it. The fact that he got a bunch of TGPers to praise a cheap, mass produced, pedal that was made in China as the next great "Dumble in a box" is hilarious and amazing but maybe not surprising. I think a lot of people listen with their eyes and their wallets rather than their ears.



              I'm reminded of the thing that Clay Jones wrote years ago. He mentioned he had been asked by a store to build a pedal for them to sell. He built a modded Tubescreamer (I think it may have basically been a Landgraff clone) and brought it to the store. He brought it to the store in a plain metal enclosure (or maybe it wasn't even in an enclosure at all, I forget) and let the guy play it. The store owner was underwhelmed. He didn't think it was a good as a Landgraff, told him to try again, and sent him on his way. He went home, took the pedal and put it in a swirley enclosure, brought it back, and when the owner played it he thought it was the greatest thing he ever heard. The pedal was exactly the same other than the swirly enclosure.



              Ken proved that a lot of people will listen with their eyes and wallets rather than their ears. I don't necessarily condone what Ken did by charging a highly inflated price for the original Alpha Drives and being sketchy on the details of how they were manufactured but I understand why he did it. He had to do it. Had he been honest and said, "Ya know, this is a cheap, mass produced Chinese pedal but with a few mods it really shines and can go head to head with all the popular boutiques" it wouldn't have worked. The best response he could have hoped for would have been things like, "It's surely no Zendrive but for a bargain pedal it's pretty good". Look at the Bad Monkey. It gets a lot of praise but as long as it's a Digitech pedal with a goofy graphic pedal some people won't allow themselves to take it too seriously.



              Ken's behavior since Freekish gate has reinforced the troll theory. He originally said he would give us an explanation that showed he was not in the wrong. This never happened. He said Joyo stole the pedal from him and went silent. When he returned about six months later he released his "official statement" in the form of a youtube video where he made a nutella and nail polish sandwich, told us he was selling the company and flipped us off. I don't even know where to start with all the bizarre posting marathons he has gone on from time to time.



              The most troubling thing, to me, is that Ken has never given a serious response to what has happened. You would think that if it were indeed a troll he would at least come clean in order to try to save face. Or maybe trolls don't do those sorts of things? I dunno.





              TL;DR: I think the Freekish is a troll operation. I don't condone what Ken did but I think I understand why he did it, and no, profit isn't his motive IMO.




              i sorta agree/believe this theory.

              this could explain a whole lot...

                Lou there is a method to my madness...... I think Lou is starting to understand. The troll operation far off. Again method to the madness.

                  From everything you posted in this thread I gather that you are a delusional ****************ing moron with no social skills who probably has never gotten laid, and masturbates more in your freekish basement to the bra section of a Sears catalog than you do building pedals of your own design. Get bent, dickhead.

                      • i'm not trying to be a prick here, but i thought we weren't allowed to start threads that put down other forumites? a little favoritism going on here...

                        i like christian, seems like a solid guy, and usually posts some great info, but 14 pages of bashing? i've seen threads closed/people banned for far less. i don't know, maybe i need a time out.

                            • Lol if you guys hate him so much, don't buy his ****************ty pedals. That is step one. After that, start working on not mentioning him so much. Seems simple enough, but bitching and making him keep coming back and saying the same thing over and over, while you guys say the same thing over and over.
