    A Pedal Builder’s Pet Peeves (Article Link)

    A Pedal Builder's Pet Peeves

    He gives five of them.
    They include things I have noticed as well.
    Especially the part about-
    Here is a translation of a huge swath of customer service emails received by pedal companies: “This pedal works as described, not as I imagined. I think it’s broken.”
    I hear this a lot online & in person--not exactly word for word, of course, but that's what they mean...
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    Ha! and to think, those pet peeves are only a drop in the bucket.

    I get it all the time...

    Customer - "I want you to make me a pickup with these specs"
    Me - "Why those specs? What type of sound/ tone are you after?"
    Customer - " I want it to sound like 'X' "
    Me - "The specs you listed with the gear you have will make it sound like 'Y' "
    Customer - "Do it anyway!"


    Customer - "Hey, that custom pickup you made to my provided specs doesn't sound like 'X'... This isn't what I wanted!"


    It's all part of the business
