Description

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!
