    If puns aren't your thing, I'm sure there's some clips out there of guys getting hit in the groin.

    I'd be more pissed at PRS or SD for dropping a guy over that, than I would be at Mark himself. He fucked up, and cheating is a really shitty thing to do, no question. But there's zero legitimate reason for a company to end a signature guitar or pickup line because a guy fucked some girl on a tour. I don't want a pickup manufacturer to be the moral police about where some guy puts his dick. None of this takes away his musical skill as a writer and player, and if I liked his sound and products, I wouldn't have a problem buying his signature stuff, even if he broke the rules of marriage.

    I think you can fuck about on tour. But if that's what you were going to do, you probably shouldn't have got married first. That said, it seems like they were in a serious relationship and it wasn't like he was banging a queue of groupies in his hotel room.

    Totally agree about people making threats though. That's just sad people with nothing better to do. As much as we all enjoy watching a bit of drama, I can't imagine feeling the need to personally contact the people involved and share personal attacks. How strange.


    YES. This 100%. The NeuralDSP Archetype Nolly is amazing. Neural Nolly Bass VST.. yes please

    Everybody makes mistakes, some are small and some are major, it's pretty normal for humans actually. This should have never gone public, I'm sure the people involved were dealing with enough shit on a personal level already. I'm pretty sure I can continue to listen and support Mark's music without any of this having any negative impact, hell I might even spin some Mayhem after this. About the shitposting and death threats thing, I think it's just adding to the reasons to spend more time in the real world.

    I saw this thread being very active over the last couple days and thought it was about Misha's new strings.

    Not our place to speculate, but I will say that being in a relationship where you're unhappy can really affect your decision making.

    Horizon Devices progressive tension strings. Rebrand of the WG StringDrop, but made by dunlop or something. I guess we'll have some more details soon.

    It was teased on Instagram that Horizon Devices were going to be selling strings.

    PRS has his 7 string at their NAMM booth and Paul highlighted it during their booth preview vid, so I'd say he's fine as far as that goes.

    People need to remember that the online "community" isn't as big as it always seems. A very small percentage of the customers who would buy his signature gear or even Periphery fans who would go to a show will ever be aware of this drama.

    I refuse to buy a signature guitar on principle unless the player has partaken in some extra-marital cheek-clapping.

    It's the new "Would have bought it but it doesn't have stainless steel frets"

    Haha a good one! Or "the vol pot is in the wrong place" as I would say.

    I don't judge him. People can make bad, short-sighted decisions when their life is unbalanced. He's talented and seems like a smart guy. I'm curious why to make it public but a proud move anyway. Last thing the community should do is bash the hell out of them but hey that's internet.

    I don't think he will lose his sig. He didn't groom teenagers or crap like that. He could have done much worse.

    On that note, cheating is wrong and completely uncalled for. When you marry someone, you make a promise to that person that you will be their's and to honor your love for them in all things. Breaking that promise is the worst thing you can do, especially to someone you love.

    Respect lost man

    Then you decide to leave, and tell all interested parties, like an actual grown up.

    That's what I did with my first wife, yeah :lol: but I can also empathize with the situation getting out of hand.
