Description

Welcome to the Chasing Tone Podcast. Join Brian Wampler, Blake Wyland, Travis Feaster, Max Jeffreys and other guests as they talk about guitars, guitar pedals, amps, and other guitar gear, answer questions, and discuss all things guitar related as well as how to get the most out of your gear to get the best guitar tone. While this podcast is paid for by Wampler, we talk about many other brands much more than we do Wampler products. If you suffer from G.A.S. or just simply like to listen to gear podcasts, you'll love Chasing Tone.

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"
