Blake and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast - I'm sure someone is missing here...Brian is feeling a little under the weather (to put it mildly) so Blake and Richard try and persevere whilst hoping the Indiana goat overlord recovers quickly. There will be much silliness. There will also be some sadness and very raw emotions as the guys react to the news that Jeff Beck passed away just hours prior to recording this show.  Richard may say a few minor swears too - fair warning issued.  Blake has got a new Amp in a Pedal and he is blown away by it, and tells us all about it in glorious detail.  Somehow this turns into a conversation about back massages and soldering irons. Richard has noticed a raise in the price of a guitar he purchased for someone and it has excited him - has he finally bought something that will go up in value ?  Richard has overdosed on UAP videos and it mixed with the hallucinations his illness brought on and tells us about it before salivating over the new Fender gold foil pickup equipped guitars.  He also comes up with a new Mandela effect suggestion and blows his own mind. It wasn't difficult. Then the guys chat about Henning's Gear Island and speculate on what's next... Lord of the Hennings, Spray Free, Never sell anything, Web-bore talk, Men In Black, The most awkward credits roll ever..it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!We are on Patreon now too!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chasingtonepodcast)Awesome Merch and DIY mods:https://modyourownpedal.com/collections/booksFind us at:https://www.wamplerpedals.com/https://www.instagram.com/WamplerPedals/https://www.facebook.com/groups/wamplerfanpage/Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdVrg4Wl3vjIxonABn6RfWwContact us at: podcast@wamplerpedals.comSupport the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Despite thinking it was a minor tickle, Richard has been suffering with weeks of illness, and the guys experiment with recording the podcast's video - and with mixed results. How much banana is required to power a distortion pedal? This crucial question is at the forefront of the guy's minds - well, kinda.Do you practice standing up or sitting? Brian wonders how he could possibly swing a Stratocaster around his neck from a seated position and there is some debate about optimal strap displacement theory. There is also a question about what happens when you take long breaks from guitar playing and some interesting points from experience are discussed. Brian has a requirement for a custom shaped thumb-pick and Richard and he came up with an alternative solution that may or may not (definitely may not) change the world as we know it.  Have you ever performed extreme winter sports while being dressed in a foolish costume? Blake has, and you are not going to want to miss this story. Do you use an attenuator or a master volume pedal in your rig? Brian breaks down the differences between the two...Nuno Bettencourt, The state fruit of Indiana, Kramer Triax, Boss SL2 Slicer, Pokemon, The Chatterless Shartzard, Costco pizza wars...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!We are on Patreon now too!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chasingtonepodcast)Awesome Merch and DIY mods:https://modyourownpedal.com/collections/booksFind us at:https://www.wamplerpedals.com/https://www.instagram.com/WamplerPedals/https://www.facebook.com/groups/wamplerfanpage/Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdVrg4Wl3vjIxonABn6RfWwContact us at: podcast@wamplerpedals.comSupport the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Richard has experienced a moment of design joy over the past holiday period which involved the "Exploding Clocks" design of the Wampler Tumnus pedal and an interaction with the person who inspired the art originally some 30+ years ago. The discussion of this leads to conversation about skateboarding, BMX'ing, and bikes in general...before Richard receives a well deserved spraying. Blake has to buy the Boss SL-2 Slicer before he buys the RE-202- well according to Richard anyways - and Brian makes a shocking closet based revelation before telling us about his upcoming new guitar day. Is it the much discussed Brent Paisley special Edition Telecaster? You're just gonna have to listen to the show to find out!Brian is about to go and hang out at a major retailer's HQ for a couple of days and tells us about the meticulous preparations that go into such an affair. Blake and Richard reveal some shocking tap tempo secrets. Brian has also been seduced by the Dark side of the moon...or has he??

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!This week the guys travel through time from 2022 to 2023 to talk about things they may be doing a weeks time back in January 2023. Confused yet? You will be soon if not already...and this leads to some SRV based revelations that shake Brian to his very core. Then Brian and Blake indulge in what can only be described as a utter buffoonery of the highest order and Richard is not impressed. Richard has taken delivery of a large quantity of American lunar based snackery and is impressed with what he has discovered. His waistline is not. Richard had a moment of synchronicity but it is tinged with much sadness as it involved the death of one of his favorite artists. Keep it light Richard, for heaven's sake. Oh actually - no need - Brian will treat it with the reverence it deserves. Richard has got hold of some "Stomptraps" to play with and he digs them so plugs away like a good 'un whilst Blake has been destroying pedals with flames and the guys discuss some unique design features of Behringer pedals. How much is the most you would ever pay for an amp? Brian has found a fairly pricey one on Reverb and the guys discuss.

Hope you have a great holiday and we will see you in the New Year! Blake has been talking for hours on end and there are some genuine fears his sanity has crumbled. There is talk about the music business and this causes Blake to start back with Freebird. Richard has been playing with Chat GPT, an AI sandbox that has amazing powers, if he had any brains he'd be using it to generate these podcast descriptions. But he doesn't. However he and Brian do believe this is the dawning of a new era for the internet. There are poems, there are songs, 'tis the season (for idiocy) !Brian has been on a Mandela effect trip and the results are simultaneously baffling, worrying, and delicious. Meanwhile Richard has had a business idea thats guaranteed to make everybody involved very wealthy. In the gear world there has been a rather special boost pedal released by the lovely folk at JHS and we look a little into the rare component and the circuit that makes this so unique. Theres a bunch of other guitar and pedal talk too. Should probably mention that. *No guarantees are made about the festive nature of this podcast. Bah Humbug.

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Brian has been playing with some gain pedals and has come up with an idea for a new gain pedal that has inspired him so he chews the idea over with Blake and Richard. This leads to the inevitable naming conversation and Brian reveals some industry secrets...maybe. The guys also look at different picking techniques and talk about expensive plectrums and the amazing plectrum stamping machine.Wampler recently released a couple of new budget pedals, the Collective series, and there has been some debate about where and how the Triumph and Phenom were made - so we break it down and tell you how we made these $99 pedals without giving money away...somehow it involves the backside of the moon. Blake has been reading about a disturbing trend in live music and brings it up for the guys to debate via the medium of very poor aquatic puns. Richard points out that "Metaverse" is amongst the words added to the Oxford English Dictionary but is sure this wont stop questions about when we are getting sued by Zuckerberg. Oh. And Freebird.

Brian, Blake, and Richard are joined this week by acclaimed producer Warren Huart for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!This week the guys are joined by Warren Huart who is an LA based English record producer, engineer, musician, composer, cricket fan, and all round super cool dude.  Warren also runs the "Produce like a Pro" YouTube channel which is one of the internet's largest repositories of professional and home studio recording instructional material - and he is also a damn fine guitarist as you will hear. Warren takes us through his early influences creatively and musically and there is some mention of prog rock. Brian gets to ask about the common mistakes we all make when mixing and Warren gives us a great perspective on the recording process with some insight that you are definitely not going to want to miss - this is an essential episode for home and studio recording geeks!The guys also look at the future of music production and the ever moving goalposts of music reproduction and distribution.

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!As this text is being written Wampler are but moments away from releasing their first two pedals from a new Budget line, The Collective, and it is going to raise a few happy eyebrows before opening several wallets...so the guys naturally spend about 0.00001% of the episode marketing this fact and 99.99999% clowning around.Richard bought his daughter a new guitar and has become a fan of EMG active pickups so tells us all about his journey with these hot sounding pups.  Brian says he doesn't need to go out for active pickups when he can make better ones at home.  Richard confesses to date related shenanigans.A friend of the show poses an interesting question about DIY graphics for DIY pedals and Brian and Blake have views.  Paul Reed Smith has been giving some of his views on Tone wood and the guys discuss this whilst Richard give the World Cup goal alerts from one week ago.

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Brian has invented a time machine and tells all about how it works in an exciting twist of fate and it doesn't get any cleverer as it progresses to Brian practicing his rolling Rs. Meanwhile in England, Richard has received a special package and gives us a live review before telling us a Twitter fuelled anecdote. Blake has been talking to Robert Keeley and he and Brian discuss the podcast they made together. He has also been thinking about guitars with extra strings like the giant spider brained genius he is and tells us of his new GAS situation. Meanwhile, Brian is dreaming of Baritone telecasters, and Richard asks dumb questions (again) before broaching the delicate subject of strap locks with Brian.What's the most you would pay for a Boss DS-1?  Kurt Cobain's DS-1 sold for a shockingly high amount of money and the guys ponder about this very question while Richard hatches a cunning plan to taunt Brian with natural pests.  Then we turn to the greatest flatulence based pedal that Brian never released and the guys come up with a few improvements.

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Blake is making content in a hotel room,  and it has come to pass that Brian is now indeed a Country and Western megastar. He may deny it but he has played at the legendary Bluebird cafe in Nashville, TN and the guys cannot fail to be impressed. Some heavy names were dropped, and some food talk also occurred. It was also livestreamed on Onlyfans of Electronics, no wait, the Wampler Metaverse, no wait, I forget...Anyhow, Bri gives us a great breakdown of his gig and a little bit of history as he tells us about the amazing acts that graced the stage before him.Eventide have brought out a rather special effects processor, the H90, and the guys cast their opinions over it and its predecessor, the mighty H9.  The guys have also been checking out the new Morley analogue flyrig board and thats definitely turned a few heads. But not Ranger Brian's. Richard has also been on the Fret Talk pedalboard so tells us a bit about that and why he love analog knobs. Spray yourself immediately! Brian has bought a new guitar and he tells us all about it despite the faux protestations from the crew - and it may surprise you. Well at least 50% of it will. It turns out the guys all have the same piece of gear and they all love it and talk about it in glowing terms.  There is almost total agreement here, its a bit disturbing.Peanut butter cheesecake, Pitchshifting mistakes, Forehead presence, The Shaggs Mk2, Free market research, You are a cheap no name wall wart...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!We are on Patreon now too!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chasingtonepodcast)Awesome Merch and DIY mods:https://modyourownpedal.com/collections/booksFind us at:https://www.wamplerpedals.com/https://www.instagram.com/WamplerPedals/https://www.facebook.com/groups/wamplerfanpage/Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdVrg4Wl3vjIxonABn6RfWwContact us at: podcast@wamplerpedals.comSupport the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Brian makes an unexpected confession as we open up this weeks episode but makes up for it with some brilliant falsetto singing before making various biscuity accusations. This leads on to a conversation about fine beverages and cultural differences.Soldano just released a new pedal and the guys talk about it - Richard is a big fan and he talks to Brian about it and gets a lesson about the origins of the original Wampler  SLOstortion pedal. Brian also gives out some exclusive pedal modding tips and then mentally redesigns a bunch of Apple products while Blake dreams of refrigeration.The guys were pleasantly surprised by a mysterious listener email and it leads down a weird and wonderful whimsical journey under the sea. Meanwhile, Brian reads a book and Richard has ordered a new pedal and is very excited about its ability to slice and dice.  Biscuit and Gravy talk, Octember, Shoewater, Cracker Barrel, Racist Chicken, Men in Black...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!Support the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Its a perplexing start this week as the guys are all completely confused by everything happening in the world today, particularly politics! Brian fantasises about calling a pedal the Brian Drive after reading the interview Paul Reed Smith gave in a guitar magazine recently. This leads into a funny yet illuminating discussion about pedal names before a technical discrepancy makes Brian's head implode. Richard has a terrible idea for a guitar brand, and avoids a spraying (narrowly) but he shares a little trick he learnt to get natural reverb in a recording studio which gives Brian an idea. There was a video involving Steve Lukather and a pedalboard failure mid song and the guys break down what happened with admiration, before offering their own power supply advice. Brian also has a minor rant about some pedals that he is a little freaked out by which leads into conversation about the Moxie and how it can be made to sound like another famous pedal. Brian has also discovered a new form of robot tuner - or is it-  and the guys talk about this always controversial issue and their own tuner preferences.Wayne Bradderson, Its weird but not very aesthetically pleasing, Lord Spinal Tap, It cant get worse, Commander Nacho 420, Benny Hill...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!Support the show

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back with a surprise guest for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Blake has been summonsed to Nashville to put his mighty brawn to use in the art of boutique guitar string winding and has bought along a very special guest to the show, Scott Marquart - the owner of Stringjoy strings! It is fair to say that Scott is one of the world's foremost experts in guitar strings, so the guys take the opportunity to take a deep dive into the world of winding metal. Scott's origin story is fascinating. He tells us how he went from all round gear nerd early on to international string magnate in an amusing and insightful tale. Then he met Blake and beautiful chainsaw doom inspired music was made. Scott gives us some unique 'stringsights' and Blake salivates over the prospect of an 8-string guitar while Brian finds an angle.Richard made another terrible mistake in his youth which he details and Brian has pressed the wrong button once again. Meanwhile, Blake's head explodes as he channels his inner conspiracy theoriser before Richard expands upon his new theory of American town names which is borderline, no, actually just very stupid. Scott then makes us all look even more stupider by telling us about the all new coated strings from Stringjoy and the technologies involved, before giving us a fantastic mini history of string manufacturers. Thick chugs, Max Djent, Stringr, -1 British Prime Minister, Big Nickel, Quadcore strings...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!We are on Patreon now too!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chasingtonepodcast)Awesome Merch and DIY mods:https://modyourownpedal.com/collections/booksFind us at:https://www.wamplerpedals.com/https://www.instagram.com/WamplerPedals/https://www.facebook.com/groups/wamplerfanpage/Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdVrg4Wl3vjIxonABn6RfWwContact us at: podcast@wamplerpedals.comSupport the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are joined by a special guest this week,  Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters, for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!We have an extra special guest this week and Brian may or may not fanboy a little bit. It is of course Chris Shiflett who is a monster player with a huge back catalogue of work - including playing in one of Brian's favorite bands, the Foo Fighters. Chris has some very cool new music coming out and also has his own podcast, Walking The Floor, and we talk about some of his escapades including a rare first hand peek into international tour bus life. Chris is a super nice dude, and his stories are absolutely fascinating. The guys talk about how Blake first discovered his music. They also go deep into Chris' love of classic rock and roll, and country music, and the influences that drove him to explore country based rock further. The guys then go right back to Chris' roots and his teenage years and find out all about his earliest tastes and influences and his signature Fender guitar. Conversation turns to his different rigs and then pedals...Brian may have found his new happy place amongst all this Foo tinged pedal talk.Chris has an idea for a custom delay pedal, and gives the guys an entertaining demonstration, and it just so happens Brian knows a guy. As well as being a fantastic player and all round legend, Chris loves football, sorry "soccer", and Richard and he share a love for the same football team so speak in what Blake and Brian can only describe as a completely foreign language. Brian's head spins, and he has fallen in love with one of Chris' solo songs "Born & Raised" so plays a little clip which instantly wins Blake over too. Right at the end Chris gives us some absolute golden insights into his songwriting process which is worth the admission fee itself. This is a special episode and the team hope you enjoy it and would like to say a huge thanks to Chris for coming on - go check out his new music! There may be a swear or two in this but heck - that's rock and roll baby!Van Life, Thierry Henry, The Stone Roses, Glaser mods, Panning Tremelo, Custom Chris Shiflett Delay pedal, Mopey minor keys...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!Check out Chris Shiflett's music here and his Podcast Here and look for him on TikTok, kids!

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Due to events beyond worldly control the team are recording back to front and it throws them off balance immediately; and Blake admits to a concert first that has pleased him greatly.  One of the largest brands in guitars has released a new range of pedals and the guys have an in-depth look without actually seeing anything other than a few pr snippets. We never promised accuracy! But we do promise moronic pedal names and designs.Richard speculates about mini pedals that Wampler Pedals may be developing and Brian makes some alarming revelations before telling us of that one time he had dinner with Paul reed Smith. Again. Brian released a video about the Mostortion circuit and how he would redesign it and slightly laments the performance of his nerdiest video to date (possibly*).  Do you buy guitar magazines anymore? The guys question the relevance of the printed format in todays increasingly online world. They also look at the research that indicates that men learn extreme metal solos just to impress other heterosexual men. There's also a hint about an upcoming guest...

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Richard has developed a new system to improve fluidity of speech and it is roundly ignored by Brian and Blake before they immediately start talking about a new five-mode goat-based fuzz pedal that isn't made by Wampler. Outrageous! This leads the guys down many bizarre rabbit holes including Richard's handedness confusion before they all freak out in a moonage daydream while discussing the new Bowie bio-pic-o-docu-film.Would you be disappointed if you went to see a live act and it was just a singer and a backing track? There was some controversy in the UK when a famous lead singer performed a kind of pimped out Dad karaoke (according to some) and the guys chat about this before Brian serenades us with his sweet, sweet voice...and Richard tells us why he is about to go metal thrashing mad.Blake is pumped to go and see My Chemical Romance, is worried about wiring harness security,  and we learn a bit about why Elmo knows everything.  This leads into a discussion about the cost of used pedals in the market today and particularly with price of Boss pedals and the currency market.  Brian has had a listener email relating to DIY pedal pcbs and the guys talk about it in an almost on-topic section.  Cursive cursing, Burly mice, Eric Clapton's air guitar, Anthrax, The multi DB-plus-u-ron, The Wampler Gold Stone, The Jeff Beck hookup...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!We are on Patreon now too!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chasingtonepodcast)Awesome Merch and DIY mods:https://modyourownpedal.com/collections/booksFind us at:https://www.wamplerpedals.com/https://www.instagram.com/WamplerPedals/https://www.facebook.com/groups/wamplerfanpage/Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdVrg4Wl3vjIxonABn6RfWwContact us at: podcast@wamplerpedals.comSupport the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Richard talks too much and this has been officially published to the interwebs so we immediately turn to making Brian feel all warm and fuzzy via entirely legal means and debating whether or not we are indeed the wisened Grandpappys of the Podcast world. Josh Scott did some analysis on Sweetwater's pedal sales and their best selling pedal may take you by surprise so the guys talk about this also and this turns into a brief investigation into the origins of said pedal. Brian then takes Richard through some basic electronics schooling and he learns him good....Warning - you may also learn about pedals in this episode. Richard also uncannily predicts the latest Walrus fuzz pedal a week before he knew about it and fungibles weren't even involved.Would you watch a hologramatic representation of a band?  Richard poses the question on the back of his better half seeing the new Abba tribute show and the subject is expanded and depated somewhat. Well that is until Brian announces that he desires a working light saber and Blake offers some very good advice about emails. Richard has observations about portable rigs for music, and Brian's night time dancing habits are examined in detail..and then it gets even sillier as the guys discuss what their X-Wing call signs should be.  Oh boy, I did warn you!

Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Blake is not in the Shred Shed today because he is saving the planet and Richard refuses to rap on microphone and instead speaks briefly about the rather monumental events in his own country. Meanwhile, Brian finds a way to turn this to George Lynch, and Blake brings up a related fact about Adrian Thorpe of the mighty Thorpy FX that you may or may not know.EHX have taken the concept of a pedal with a plugin to the next level with their new hybrid Big Muff pedal which promises a kind of seamless transition between hardware and software output - so the guys poke around this with the abandon of a bored schoolchild. Richard has a genius idea to build something thats already been invented and Brian improves it before destroying everyone's hopes and dreams once again.Brian gets forced onto facebook for a nanosecond and you can actually witness the moment his brain melts in real time while Richard and Blake discuss typographical legends and the legendary fonts of doom. Is rock music making a comeback? There are some signs that it may be and the guys talk about that before Brian teaches us some of his amazing zen-like tactics for casino success.Purple dye, Free 7 Day Metaverse trial, Mac Zakkerberg, The Guitar Summit, Richard's LEGO hell, Chuggy Elements, The idiot rinser...it's all in this week's Chasing Tone!We are on Patreon now too!Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chasingtonepodcast)Awesome Merch and DIY mods:https://modyourownpedal.com/collections/booksFind us at:https://www.wamplerpedals.com/https://www.instagram.com/WamplerPedals/https://www.facebook.com/groups/wamplerfanpage/Youtube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdVrg4Wl3vjIxonABn6RfWwContact us at: podcast@wamplerpedals.comSupport the show
Brian, Blake, and Richard are back for an all-new episode of the Chasing Tone Podcast!Richard has "Borrowed" a vintage 1963 Fender Stratocaster and he tells us about it - there are some surprising differences with modern Strats that he has uncovered so the guys chat about vintage guitars and that special magic they can exude.  This also leads on to a fascinating and enlightening discussion about switch positions and Brian refuses to listen to Richard's utterly flawed logical fallacies so gets hard evidence to finally prove Richard is indeed a massive fool. Brian wants a giant tractor and a private plane and a plot is hatched to make this happen...maybe...ok it got silly real quick.  There was a massive tribute concert to Taylor Hawkins and the guys chat about it - it was emotional, and there were guitars involved. There was also a very special performance from Wolfgang Van Halen and it pleased the guys greatly. Brian has serpentine problems in the shape of a water snake and the guys ponder over potential solutions to this problem which is consuming the fishery livestock of Martinsville. Richard is concerned about the barbarism in Brian's approach to despatching his unwanted guest so explores alternatives.  Meanwhile, Blake introduces us to the king of the methedestrians while Brian admits that he has the brain of a small tree dwelling rodent...

Episode 304: Side note to Brian's "high" anxiety... don't consume sativa. You're more of an Indica guy... You'll have a completely different experience.😉

Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, and maybe Chicago. Those are the exceptions. anti-flag wasn't selling out venues anywhere else. read up on warped tour, they were not profitable

I get kind of insulted sometimes when I'm on reddit and some kid has his guitar laying on the bed hitting it with sticks while turning knobs on his pedals and then talks to everyone like he's a really skilled guitarist. .but I also get that the same kid may be a genius and I'm just being a Mr Burns saying "get off my lawn"
